But it turns out that was a quote from Brown months ago, the last time he sat down with the station for an on-air interview, a station rep told E! "Chris Brown's comment of that he's not with Rihanna was from when Chris was here last, which [deejay] Big Boy used to set up the question he asked Chris this morning," the rep said.
When Big Boy asked Brown about the quote in the new interview, he quipped that Brown "didn't tell all the truth," E! reports. But in regards to his current relationship status, Brown said, "I'm a lover, man. Definitely in love."
Brown added that, while he hasn't seen Rihanna since she left for her Diamonds World Tour, he hopes to fly out and catch a couple of her shows, according to E!
