Chris Brown Denies Rihanna Relationship: We Will ‘Always Be Best of Friends’ (VIDEO)

RiRi: I'm Not Dating
Rihanna says she has not rekindled romance with Chris Brown.
Just a day after ex-girlfriend Rihanna went on the record to say she has not rekindled her romance with Chris Brown, the “Don’t Wake Me Up” singer took to the airwaves to explain their complex relationship.

Sitting down with Los Angeles’ Power 106 radio station, the 23-year-old R&B artist flat out denied that he was dating Rihanna, 24, again.

“No,” he bluntly told the DJ. “And that’s just quick — the quick answer.”

Brown then went on to explain why he decided to release his homemade video after splitting with girlfriend Karreuche Tran, where he famously mused is there “such a thing as loving two people.”

“With that is just me being honest with myself,” he said. “Me and her have history and me and her are definitely always going to be best of friends.”

“We’re working on our friendship now,” Brown continued.

The former couple famously had a falling out when Brown attacked his then-girlfriend at a pre-Grammys party in 2009. Brown is currently still on probation for the assault.

“I think everybody feels so attached to this old situation,” he said of the attack.  “I mean, it’s still a detrimental situation because it’s still stuff we’re dealing with today … that shows that domestic violence is not okay. But, as far as our personal lives, I think people’s got to give it a chance.”

A split second later, Brown corrected himself, “Well, not even give it a chance. Shut the hell up! It is what it is.”

Recently, Brown and Rihanna made headline news after they were spotted getting close at various celebrity hangouts.

Aside from being snapped together at a Jay-Z concert just hours before Brown broke the news that he was back on the market, the two were seen hitting the dance floor at the GreyStone Manor on Halloween.

“Rihanna and Chris were dancing and drinking the entire night,” an eyewitness told Celebuzz. “She wasn’t even looking at any other guys but Chris.”

While some may scorn Brown and Rihanna for talking again after the assault, Brown defended his friendship during Friday’s radio interview.

“It’s me. At the end of the day, whatever opinions they have ain’t going to affect what I’m doing,” he said.
