Stories of the supposed split began circulating when Los Angeles radio station Power 106 tweeted a juicy message about Brown's interview with the show "Big Boy's Neighborhood." Breezy was in the hot seat to promote his new single, "Fine China," which comes out Monday.
However, the video of the chat between 23-year-old Brown and radio host Big Boy shows Brown referring to Rihanna often, and even using the word "we."
When Brown was asked about whether he and RiRi would collaborate on any tunes for his upcoming album that's expected later this year, Brown said there are plans for both of them to appear on both of their future projects. He also laughed it off when Big Boy joked that the two couldn't finish recording together because they "are doing it too much in the studio."
The "Don't Wake Me Up" singer's response to the question of when he'd last seen Rihanna, who began her "Diamonds" tour earlier this month, was straightforward.
"Man, it's been a minute, though, because I haven't had a chance to go out there on the tour yet, because I've been working," Brown explained. "But I [saw] her right before she went out."The only time he came close to saying that he and Rihanna are not together was when Big Boy replayed a portion of a previous Brown appearance on the show, where Brown said he was not dating Rihanna and it turned out that he really was in a relationship with her.
Brown also didn't sound like a single man on Tuesday when he appeared on Ryan Seacrest's L.A.-based morning show, where he raved about his on-again, off-again girlfriend's ability to forgive him after he assaulted her in 2009.
"I just tried my best to be the best man I could be over the years and just show her how remorseful and sorry I was for the incident," Brown said. "And that time was probably the worst part of my life and being that she has and she's a wonderful person I'm eternally grateful and thankful."
