If you’re ever wondering what’s going on with Chris Brown on the relationship front, all you need do is find out who he is and isn’t following on Twitter. As dumb as that sounds, in the past, it’s been an insanely accurate depiction of his relationship status with the infamous love triangle members, Brown, Karrueche and Rihanna.
And today, it looks like Karruche Tran is on the chopping block…again. Not only did Chris Brown and Karrueche stop following each other, Chris also tweeted these cryptic messages:
Don’t sleep with a white tee on next to ya shawty. Gonna wake up wit footprints on ya back.
— Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) October 22, 2013
Back turned walking away from the situation. Hamisheh asegh!

Umm…yeah I don’t exactly get it either. But according to the IBTimes.com, ”Hamisheh asegh” is Persian for “perpetual lover.” And we don’t know if this is related, but it’s also a nice, little melodic song.
Who knows. Right now, it’s a bit too early to tell; but we’re sure with Chris’ penchant for the dramatics, we’ll know what’s up one way or another.
Chris and Karrueche are supposed to be hosting a Halloween event together in Las Vegas, let’s see if they show up for that.
Though some breakups are mutual, most of them are bitter and sometimes blindsiding. When a relationship ends on bad terms, both parties walk away with a sense of bitterness, anger, and frustration. Even though some time has passed, you probably still harbor some ill feelings towards your ex. However, let the past be the past and mind what comes out of your mouth. Here are 14 things to never say about an ex.
Does every break up have to be forever? If Nene and Gregg could do reunite, we don’t see why these celebrity couples can’t give it another try. Know any other celebrity couples who should give it a second shot? Share it with us in the comments section.

Not too long ago I’m on the bus with one of my friends. We caught up on a bunch of things: we spoke about work, Grand Theft Auto (goes without saying) and women. This somehow leads us to what I consider a great debate.
I love to have my thoughts challenged, so in turn this post is written to challenge all our thoughts. The debate my friend and I were having dealt with whether or not you could sleep with people while single. As simple as that may sound, there is a twist. You see there’s an idea that we all have where someone may break up with you… but they didn’t really break up with you. I’m sure we’re all familiar with “breaks” in relationships. I’m personally not big on them; although, in some cases I guess they’re necessary.
Here is my very simple and straight forward opinion.
If you are in a relationship and you all legitimately break up, I deem you single. Whether or not you get back with someone in the future is irrelevant. If you want to explore some options during your single period, as far as I’m concerned, it’s right by the book. In truth, there’s really no book, but you know what I mean. My friends usually say I’d get them in trouble with my views. I just operate with the idea of facts. The facts in this scenario are I’m not cheating, and I was good to you while I was with you. Those are unequivocal facts. Whether or not you tell someone after the fact is on you.
My friend felt different and just to clarify, it is a guy. His take on this might be refreshing to some. He really thinks if you think you’ll eventually get back with someone, then it’s wrong to deal with someone else. He asked “what if a girl did her on a break with you?” I by no means said you won’t be upset if the roles were reversed. I also didn’t say that someone wouldn’t like the fact that you may have been with someone on a “break.” But really, what could you say? You would have to tell me what rule was exactly violated.
The essence of what my friend was harping on was emotions that are involved in these situations. If you ask me, emotions can be quite independent from what you do.

There are a few—and I mean a very few—instances in which a broken relationship can be fixed and things can start anew. But you don’t just get to blindly walk into it, expecting the comfort of the familiar, and the butterflies of being reunited, to carry you through the problems that once destroyed you. There is work to be done. Here are some guidelines for getting started.
Hollywood relationships come and go. Although they thought they’d be together forever and even got engaged, these celeb couples never made it down the aisle.
Britney Spears and Jason Trawick
Britney Spears had a very public meltdown back in 2009. There to help the star through her recovery was her father James, who was named her conservator by the court. Also on hand was former agent Jason Trawick. The two started dating and he was even named co-conservator in 2012 after the couple became engaged. Although her career was on the rebound, the same thing could not be said about her love life. Spears announced the couple’s split at the beginning of this year. “Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement,” Spears said in a statement released by her publicist on Jan. 11, 2013. “I’ll always adore him and we will remain great friends.”
Breaking up is hard enough without being put out of house and home. And if you did live with your man, odds are you thought you’d marry one day or at least be together for a long time: so this is no mild heartbreak. Every step of the move out during the breakup is delicate, and a misstep will make things much harder. So follow these guidelines.
Watching the drama between “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star Mimi Faust and her “boyfriend,” rapper Nikko, is like watching a dog walk on its hind legs. It’s weird and confusing but you can’t help but to watch… and laugh.
The two began dating a few episodes ago, although Mimi continues to have sit-downs with her ex, Stevie J, to “work things out.” And after Stevie handed her keys to a BMW right in front of Nikkio’s face, it’s no wonder the status of their relationship appears to be up in the air.
From the looks of a clip from next week’s episode, the couple might have called it quits but we can’t be sure. In a recent interview with The Jasmine Brand, Faust talked Nikko and opportunism and spoke of their relationship on the past tense which could be a good clue to their status. She said:
“I don’t think Nikko was using me. If you ask me, everyone is an opportunist. Everyone in this world is an opportunist and if you’re not, then something may be wrong.”
“I don’t think he (Nikko) was using me. He was trying to get what he was trying do at the forefront and I don’t blame him. I would of done the same thing if I was him. Joseline was doing it to Stevie J. Everyone was doing it, so it is what it is.”
I mean… it does make sense. He’s a rapper trying to get his name out there. She’s a highly controversial star of one of the most watched reality television shows. That’s a straight avenue to the demographic he’s trying to reach in his music.
However, despite her comments on their relationship, Mimi and Nikko recently visited Kandi Burress’s Kandi Koated Nights show together, which makes us ask, are they mending their relationship? Are they on speaking terms? Are they keeping up appearances for the media? It’s all too back-and-forth to call but that seems to Mimi’s M.O. from all the drama she tolerates with baby daddy, Stevie J.
Though there is some conflict about whether she and Nikko are still an item, does it even really matter? I think they have served their entertainment purposes and onlookers are ready to see something else.
What do you think?
Sometimes, after you break things off with your ex, you never see them again… not in the back aisles of bodegas, nor at the concerts of mutually-enjoyed musicians. Depending on how your relationship ended, you’re lucky enough not to see their mug again. Then, there are other exes, those who are always around. They are visible, they make frequent appearances, they know your schedule, they ‘like’ everything on your Facebook wall and Instagram, and/or they still talk to all of your friends. Despite the fact that you two are no longer an item, your ex has failed to get the memo that you both need to move on.
Once, I had an ex who called me every day for the next six months after our short relationship ended, even when he’d moved on to another relationship. I had another ex who would tattle to a mutual friend anytime he saw me hanging out with other guys, claiming that I was being “out of control.” Some exes don’t know how to mind their own business, and some of them need to find business of their own. We’ve all had to deal with a person like this at least once.
Some people are unable to step away from their fallen relationships. Geared by certain motivations, they decide to hang around for a number of reasons, including: personal history, lingering attraction, persisting emotion, fear, or not feeling a sense of closure. And, sometimes, people hang around just so they can stay in your system, and remain relevant. While they don’t necessarily want to be with you, they can’t resist an urge to check on you, access you, and/or make sure that your happiness doesn’t exceed theirs. Their actions not being based on wanting you back, missing you, or caring deeply for you, they often behave this way because it’s simply a matter of them not wanting anyone else to be with you. They suddenly see your value once others are appraising you, and that somehow provokes some insane sense of entitlement in them that compels the person to infringe on your time, make off-hand comments, or to be all-around haters.
Even if your ex has your best intentions in mind, (i.e. calling to check on how you’re doing, being emotionally available) it’s important to gain some sort of distance post breakup, otherwise it produces confusion, and the situation becomes murky. Very solid lines that were been drawn when you two broke up can suddenly become blurred, and the thought of “Why did we break up in the first place?” surfaces. It’s easy to stumble back into a relationship, especially when your ex is a concerned and helpful person. This isn’t to say that you and your ex can’t ever be friends or that you and your ex can’t give it a second go, but it’s important to gain that initial distance for a few reasons.
Number one: if you’re not careful, you might end up bedding him simply because feelings were amidst, and you were feeling sentimental and vulnerable. Number two: you don’t want to use your ex, which can be the can be the case with kind overly-attached exes. As flattering as it is that your ex will still travel several miles out of his way to pick up your dry cleaning, you don’t want to take advantage of that kindness, especially if those kind things are are only being done in order to lure you back into a relationship. Number three: if you decide that the two of you should get back together, remembering why you broke up is really important, and a few nice gestures won’t cure ongoing issues. Make sure you take the proper amount of time to digest your break-up before making the decision to get back with that person.
No longer being with your ex grants you the permission to do whatever you need/want to do, despite the fact that a nosy ex can be a naysayer. Try to vocalize your position to your ex if you’re feeling overwhelmed by them, and try to inform them that while their opinions were once held with the greatest esteem, it’s time for them to take a step way back. Like way back and out of the picture.
