The signs were there, but now Chris Brown has laid all the facts out on the table.

During an interview with 2Day's (yes, the Australian radio station that infamously prank-called Kate Middleton) The Kyle and Jackie Show, Breezy confirmed that he and Rihanna are no longer dating (at least, for now) while discussing the multiple birthday celebrations he had lined up.

"I've actually got three birthday parties scheduled, I got one in L.A., one in Vegas and one in New York so we can gon' have fun, and I'm just trying to have, you know, the best time with my fans and all the people in the club."

But what about Ri-Ri?

"Imma do it solo," Brown continued. "I mean, at the end of the day, shawty doing her own thang, she on the road. It's always gonna be love. I'm a grown man, just gotta fast forward."

The singer makes it clear that his love for Rihanna hasn't gone anywhere, but at this point in their lives, it's just not practical, "I'm always gonna love that person. I cant be focused on wife-ing someone that young. I need to be the best Chris Brown I can be.
