Rihanna, 20, had apparently wanted to stand by Brown. But, after listening to her friends and family who pleaded with her to dump the 'Run It' singer, the Barbados-born star has decided to end the relationship.
"Rihanna really did think that Chris was the love of her life. But when everyone started to question their relationship, she burst into tears and reluctantly agreed that they were right. She just can't believe it's ended this way," the News of the World quoted a source, as saying.
A source close to Brown added, "Chris and his camp won't take this lying down. He's told friends that Rihanna's true colors will soon come out."
