• Divesting: Chris Brown, who took the unusual step Thursday of announcing he’s “decided to be single” — i.e., breaking up with model girlfriend Karrueche Tran — in a public statement to the usual celeb-news outlets. The felon/singer cited a need “to focus on my career,” but also coyly referenced not wanting “to see her hurt over my friendship with Rihanna.” Yes, that Rihanna — with whom he’s been publicly cuddling up in recent days. Go ahead, shake your head disapprovingly. New albums to sell, and one must keep in the news some way.
