Looks like Chris Brown and Rihanna have broken up. Again.
According to Los Angeles radio station Power 106, the R&B star revealed that he and RiRi have split again after rekindling their controversial romance.
Host Big Boy reportedly brought up the topic last Friday.
"Are you still with Rihanna?" Big Boy asked Brown.
His response: "Uh, no. That's the short answer."
The radio station tweeted that quote, then defended it against critics claiming it to be idle gossip, stating, "We wouldn't have tweeted it if it wasn't true."
However, the portion of their interview online right now does not include any such quote (below), though Power 106 says it will post the full exchange soon.
Did Chris Brown later confirm the breakup when asked directly? It's certainly possible, but if so, it flies in the face of other comments he's made recently.
Brown told Ryan Seacrest in an interview with KIIS-FM last week that he is "eternally grateful" to Rihanna for forgiving him for attacking her in 2009.
"I just tried my best to be the best man I could be over the years and just show her how remorseful and sorry I was for the incident," he explained.
"And that time was probably the worst part of my life and being that she has and she’s a wonderful person I’m just eternally grateful and thankful."
Still, it appears the breakup could be the real deal. Rihanna tweeted, "This is terrible," yesterday morning, and also retweeted this astrological gem:
"It's the heart of a #Pisces that makes us soft mannered BUT is that same heart of a #Pisces that will make us get in your ass if needed."
Make of that what you will. But we're thinking April Fools' joke.
What do you think of the purported split? Real or fake?
