Karrueche Tran and Chris Brown are reportedly on the outs after the singer posted a photo of his girlfriend in a thong to his Instagram over July 4 weekend.

Yeah ... these things happen when you're Chris Brown.

On Independence Day itself, the two were spotted partying at Nobu Malibu, but later in the weekend, things apparently turned sour. Says an insider.

“Karrueche and Chris are done. They’re not speaking.”

The reason? A very sexy black and white shot of Karrueche Tran in a tiny thong that he put on Instagram. He later deleted the pic, but the source says:

"It seems she was upset by Chris’ photo."

If indeed the couple is broken up over this, it was the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back, as there has been strife between them brewing of late.

Here we go again. Rihanna reportedly paid a visit to troubled ex-boyfriend Chris Brown in rehab this winter, and Karrueche Tran dumped him as a result.

The on-again, off-again love triangle erupted into fireworks once again after Rih flew on a private plane to see her former boo at a Malibu rehab center.

Chris Brown is taking part in court-ordered anger management and drug recovery there, having been diagnosed with PTSD and bipolar disorder.

He entered the program in November and was ordered to complete an additional two months in late February, in lieu of jail time for violating probation.

Chris sought help after getting arrested for assault in D.C., after which his probation - for beating the crap out of Rihanna in 2009 - was revoked.

Their violent history, combined with the fact that Rihanna and Drake are reportedly an item now, makes her visit to see Chris in rehab all the more amazing.

Karrueche Tran fired off a Tweet that can only be a reference to the fight that got Chris Brown arrested this morning, just days after the duo reportedly split.

Brown's on-off girlfriend - the other member of the long-running love triangle with Rihanna - said she hates "waking up to bad news" ... then lost it:

"What is wrong with some of y'all?" Karrueche wrote on Twitter. "Did y'all parents not love y'all enough? Y'all gotta quit this negative s--t 24 f--king 7."

It's unclear if she was taking a shot at Brown himself, or if she was responding to haters bombarding her account with insults regarding the incident.

In any case, it comes on the heels of a report that Karrueche asked if she could move in to Chris' house last week, only to watch him flip out over the request.

According to insiders, he accused the aspiring model of not being “grateful” for everything he already does for her, and for trying to push him too hard.

Rihanna is back home after two months of touring Europe, but it’s not likely you'll see her reunite with Chris Brown upon her return to the United States.

In fact, insiders say she's learned her lesson - for good - about their toxic romance.

Rihanna and Chris Brown have given their romance many chances, only to yield several failed attempts, including a very public one this year.

While she forgave his brutal assault on her, the 25-year-old found that a lack of trust in her relationship with Chris Brown was the nail in the coffin.

Says a source close to the music superstar:

Chris Brown has confirmed that he and Rihanna have in fact split, again. He gave an interview this weekend in which he put it in no uncertain terms.

Rihanna's absence - and Karrueche Tran's presence - on Chris Brown's 24th birthday did not go unnoticed, and the star was asked about it Sunday.

In a new interview with the Australian radio station 2DayFM, he said:

“I’mma do it solo. I mean, at the end of the day, shawty doin' her own thing, she on the road. It’s always gonna be love. I’m a grown man, just gotta move forward."

It sounds like the distance wasn't the only factor in the split, though.

The "mystery blonde" cited as one of the catalysts for the Chris Brown and Rihanna breakup has been ID'd ... though her role in the duo's split is unclear.

Keisha Kimball, 22, is a waitress at L.A.'s Playhouse nightclub, and was indeed photographed holding Breezy's hand Saturday at the club, as reported.

But going from that to being blamed for Chris Brown and Rihanna breaking up is a bit of a stretch. First off, it's unclear when said breakup occurred.

Second ... he's not her "type."

Chris Brown and Rihanna are over, and according to reports, it's not an April Fools prank this time. An E! News source confirmed the duo's split today.

The breakup wasn't caused by any cheating, but a "tireless frenzy of are-they-or-aren't-they tail-chasing" wore on them, as did demanding schedules.

Per insiders, Rihanna will always love Chris Brown but has moved on from him and is "re-shifting her focus to her career and business ventures."

That's about as vague as you can get, but such is life.

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."
