Amid a never-ending firestorm of controversy, Chris Brown was spotted leaving Tru Nightclub in Hollywood last night with girlfriend Karrueche Tran.

They look happy. Guess there's no trouble in paradise ... at least not yet.

Karrueche Tran and Rihanna, Chris' ex-girlfriend and recent collaborator, are said to be engaged in a war of words, Facebook messages and Tweets.

In case there's any doubt where his heart is (at least last night):

Karrueche Tran and Chris Brown

Karrueche reportedly said earlier this week on Facebook, in what was seen by many as a jab at Rihanna, "I'm Angelina, you're Jennifer. C'mon you see where Brad at."

It's starting to look like the aspiring model may be right ... and may be morphing into Rihanna, with her newly blonde hair and sharpened fake nails. Just saying.

There's also this random Rihanna topless pic Tweeted yesterday. Which has nothing to do with this story, in all honesty, but still felt worth noting.

Reportedly embroiled in an online feud with Karrueche Tran, Chris Brown's new girlfriend, Rihanna is making more headlines today for her use of Twitter.

That's because the singer has posted a provocative photo of herself on the network, posing last night in nothing but bracelets and shorts. See for yourself here:

The sexy shot is seemingly a promotion for her upcoming music video, which Rihanna is currently shooting and which will be in honor of a track on her latest album, "Where Have You Been?"

"Where have you been all my life?!" RiRi Tweeted along with the pic.

But perhaps it's also a response to her own father, Ronald Fenty, who told Heat magazine recently that Rihanna was a "little fat the last time I saw her."

Fenty added that he's cool with his daughter rekindling a relationship, professional or otherwise, with the man who beat her bloody just a couple years ago, saying:

"Chris is a nice guy and everybody's entitled to make mistakes in their life. God knows how many I've made. She's her own woman now."

The ladies in Chris Brown's life, girlfriend, Karreuche Tran, and ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, may or may not be trading social media barbs in an escalating public feud.

Either way, he's loving life these days.

Maybe it’s a welcome distraction in Brown’s life now, with the iPhone theft investigation and all. Maybe it's just nice to have his ego stroked. Maybe both.

In any case, Brown and Rihanna have reportedly been hooking up for months, despite him dating Karreuche Tran ... called “an open relationship” by some.

However, (perceived) trouble began when Rihanna tweeted a photo of a bag of rice cakes with gold earrings, and the caption, "Ima a make u my bitch."

Some interpreted that as a racial jab at Karrueche Tran, who is Vietnamese.

Maybe she was just hungry after a show? Who knows. But in return, the aspiring model fired off several missives on Facebook aimed directly at Rihanna.

In one, she wrote:

"Let me clear the air, if you have fenty at the end of ya name or your default Is Rihanna you have a better chance of winning the lottery than ending up on my friends list."

BAM. Oh, but it continues.

The latest rumor in the strange saga of Rihanna and Chris Brown comes to us from Ms. Karrueche Tran, his girlfriend, and an interesting remark she wrote on Facebook.

Chris and Karrueche seem on solid ground despite his musical (and purported, but not confirmed, sexual) collaborations with Rihanna. But is there tension brewing?

This weekend, Rihanna Tweeted the following picture with the caption "Ima make u my bitch." Some actually interpreted this as a veiled shot at Karrueche Tran:

  • Rihanna's Rice Cakes
  • Karrueche Pic

In response, or maybe just randomly, Karreuche took to Facebook and made a comment that sure seems like a commentary on Chris' relationship status.

That and the fact that she's got the upper hand. She wrote on Facebook:

"I'm Angelina, You're Jen. C'mon you see where Brad is at."

If that was a diss, it was a decent one. Nice use of celebrity gossip knowledge to make the point that Chris Brown is hers now and imply that he's got no interest in Rih.

What do you think of Karrueche Tran's FB post? Was it in response to Rihanna's rice cake diss? Was Rihanna's Tweet really just about eating rice cakes?

Finally, Chris Brown news that doesn't involve controversy over beating Rihanna or stealing some chick's phone: The cover of his fifth studio album has been released!

The singer is slated to release Fortune May 8, three days after his 23rd birthday.

Fortune is the follow up to Chris' Grammy-winning F.A.M.E., and will include his new song “Turn Up the Music.” It's unclear if it will also include the Rihanna remix.

Rihanna's recent musical collaboration with Chris Brown has spurred criticism across the media and celebrity spectrum. Reese Witherspoon has even weighed in.

The This Means War actress star appeared at the World Conference of Women's Shelters in Washington, D.C., as part of a partnership with the Avon Foundation.

There to raise awareness about domestic violence, the mother of two say she is making sure her kids - Ava, 12, and Deacon, 8 - learn an important lesson.

She openly discussed how she actively talks to her two children about domestic violence, and that Chris Brown and Rihanna are part of that conversation.

"We talk about domestic violence and what that means," Witherspoon, 35, said.

"Although the concept is somewhat foreign to them, they're starting to understand that this happens to families in our country and all throughout the world."

She also doesn't shelter them from the realities of Brown's assault on Rihanna: "My daughter knows what happened to her. My son knows as well."

Troubled singer Chris Brown is reportedly adamant that he did not gank the iPhone of a fan who is accusing him of "robbery by sudden snatching."

Brown has been accused of stealing Christal Spann's iPhone after she says she snapped a picture of the singer sitting in the back of a Bentley.

The star allegedly rolled up, snatched the phone, and said, "b!tch, you're not sending this to no website," and then drove off with the thing.

Chris Brown Gets Low

Authorities are investigating, and if Brown is arrested, it would be extremely likely that the L.A. D.A.'s Office will seek to revoke his probation.

Chris is on probation stemming from his no contest plea to battery on Rihanna. A mere arrest - not even a conviction - could jeopardize that.

"Chris wouldn't need to be convicted in the Miami case to cause problems with his probation, just charged,” a source tells Radar Online.

“The conditions of his felony probation are very, very strict."

"Chris must obey all laws and not be arrested for any other crimes. This could be a huge nightmare for his probation if he is arrested and charged."

One person squarely in his camp?

A warrant for Chris Brown's arrest is being prepared by the Florida State's Attorney's office Thursday after he allegedly stole a woman's phone. Seriously.

The supposed victim recently filed a police report against him, according to Deborah Doty, the public information officer for the Miami Police Department.

"An incident report was filed against Mr. Brown, and the Florida State Attorney's Office will be issuing a warrant for his arrest this afternoon," she said.

"I can't tell you what time, but it will be today."

Chris Brown Goofs Off

Chris Brown, whose remixes and relationship with Rihanna are making all kinds of news, is accused of snatching Christal Spann's cell phone outside a club.

As he sat in a Bentley after exiting a nightclub, the police report states that Spann snapped a picture of Chris Brown chilling in the back of the car.

That is when Brown allegedly snatched the phone, which he did not give back (obviously) and told Spann, "B!tch, you ain't giving this to no website."

Eloquent, Chris Brown. Eloquent. The star, who is currently on probation, has not commented, nor has his attorney, Mark Geragos. Stay tuned.

UPDATE: Brown is being investigated for "Robbery by sudden snatching."

The woman who claims Brown robbed her was captured on video obtained by TMZ, clearly agitated as she tells cops, "He snatched my phone."

Christal Spann and her two friends seem spontaneous and upset as she exclaims several times to the authorities, "I just want my phone back."

The Miami Beach P.D. and the State Attorney's Office is aware of the video and will evaluate it in deciding whether to charge Brown with a crime.

UPDATE #2: The incident is still under investigation by the Miami Beach police, as of Friday, February 24, 5 p.m. EST. However, there is no warrant.

However, the Miami-Dade County state attorney's office said Friday that reports of an arrest warrant issued for Brown were inaccurate at this time.
