Hours after the "Don't Wake Me Up" singer, 23, confirmed their split, Brown shared a video with his Twitter followers titled "The Real Chris Brown."
In the clip, Brown admits he's "a little drunk" but wants to set the record straight about falling back in love with Rihanna, 24, while still dating Tran, 23, reported Us magazine.
"Y'all don't really get the real Chris Brown, so I like to just be honest, man. I'm stressed out," he says.
Talking about both loves, Brown says, "When you share history with somebody, then you tend to fall in love with somebody else, it's kinda difficult. Is there such thing as loving two people? I don't know if that's possible, but for me, I feel like that."
"Y'all are probably like, 'What is he talking about right now?' But I'm just saying, I'm being real. I don't want to hurt either or. I'm not trying to be a player. I'm not trying to be a dog. None of that. My mama raised me differently. I just can't. It's too much sometimes," he added.
When Brown first confirmed his split, the Grammy Award winner said he had "decided to be single to focus on my career. I love Karrueche very much but I don't want to see her hurt over my friendship with Rihanna. I'd rather be single allowing us to both be happy in our lives." Brown and Tran dated for about a year.
Actress Evan Rachel Wood and fiance Jamie Bell are said to have wed this week and were spotted jetting out of the airport with matching rings.
