Chris Brown may have only just called time on his romance with Rihanna, but the R&B star didn’t seem to be nursing a broken heart as he stepped out with a mystery brunette last night at a Met Gala after party bash in New York.
The recently single Don’t Wake Me Up singer looked like he was revelling at being back on the market and courted his new bachelor status by wearing a vibrant red blazer teamed with a black shirt and trousers - hardly the look of a man who wanted to go unnoticed.

While it’s uncertain if Chris’ lady friend was indeed that – just a friend, she appeared pretty chuffed to be in the 24-year-old’s company as they were spotted entering a party at the Standard Hotel in the trendy Meatpacking district.
Chris announced that he has split from Rihanna in an interview last week after just a few months of dating – hinting that he just wasn’t ready to settle down in to a serious relationship with the Diamonds singer.
When asked during an interview with the Kyle & Jackie O Show on Australian station 2DayFM, he claimed he wanted "to really see as many girls as possible," for his birthday.

Asked then whether he was in a relationship with Rihanna he explained: "I'm going to do it solo, at the end of the day, she's already doing her thing, she's on the road ... there's always going to be love, but I'm just going to do me. I'm a grown man."
"The way I look at it is, I'm always going to love that person, but people have differences, and people have different wants and needs, at the end of the day she's a young girl. I can't really be focused on wife-ing somebody that young, and I'm young too."
Responding to Chris' comments Rihanna jumped on Twitter to hit back with: "Settling is not an option! Nothing less than 100% loyalty, honesty, and respect!! Love ain't for kidz."
We've got a feeling this love saga is far from over.
