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after getting arrested for assault in D.C., after which his probation - for beating the crap out of Rihanna in 2009 - was revoked.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

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."

Dudley O’Shaughnessy has totally hung out with Rihanna a couple of times recently, but calling that "dating" would be premature, he says. Why? He's just too busy!

Despite going out with her more than once, Dud told The Mirror that he's too busy to continue anything with the singer. The British model/boxer, 21, tells the paper:

“We had fun ­together, but I don’t know when I will see her again to be honest.”

“My career is my biggest priority right now,” said the star of her latest music video, before adding: “I’d like to go to America soon ... but for work.”

The pair hit it off when Rihanna hand-picked Dudley O'Shaughnesssy to star in her "We Found Love" video. The two went out together in London last week a few times, and O’Shaughnessy also attended her concert at O2 Arena.

Too bad it was short-lived, they made a cute couple ... although somehow we're guessing based on the Esquire's new cover featuring Rihanna nude and proclaiming her the Sexiest Woman Alive, she'll have no problem moving on.

Matt Kemp has struck out with Rihanna.

Sources confirm to Us Weekly that the outfielder and the singer are no longer an item, as the sexy crooner "was basically just over it," an insider says. Adding that the relationship was "never as serious as it looked," the friend concluded:

"He just can't keep up with her crazy travel schedule."

In early December, rumors of Kemp cheating circulated. There's no evidence that this split is connected to that chatter, but one thing is for certain:

Rihanna leaves this relationship in a much better state than she did when she broke up with Chris Brown.
