Chris Brown: 'I'm happier than ever as a single dad'

Chris Brown insists he is happier than ever with his new life as a single father after recently suggesting he is lonely following his split from Karrueche Tran.

The Loyal singer was dumped by his on/off girlfriend Karrueche in March (15) after it emerged he had fathered a child with his model friend Nia Guzman last year (14).


He subsequently focused on officially establishing paternity and in September (15), reached an agreement with Nia for joint custody of the little girl, named Royalty.


Chris has been sharing his joy at parenthood by posting pictures of their father-daughter visits on social media and bringing the tot out onstage during his tour, and he has even dedicated his new album to his first child by naming the project in her honour.


However, the 26 year old recently admitted he is still eager to find 'The One' as life is starting to feel a little lonely.


"Being single is great if you want to be a horndog (sic), but it's boring when u (sic) want a soulmate," he wrote on Twitter on 13 November (15).


Fans of Karrueche and his other famous ex, Rihanna - who he was infamously convicted of assaulting in 2009, responded to Chris' tweet with heavy criticism, suggesting he should have treated the women in his life with more respect, and he later deleted his original message from his timeline.


Now Chris has seemingly addressed the controversy, letting his followers know he is doing just fine on his own by sharing a lengthy message of text on Instagram.


"It is a simple yet profound truth: happiness is a choice," reads Friday's (20Nov15) post. "You don't have to wait for everything to be perfect in your family or with your business. You don't have to forgo happiness until you lose weight, break an unhealthy habit, or accomplish all your goals. Happiness is your choice."


He continues, "You might as well choose to be happy and enjoy your life! When you do that, not only will you feel better, but your faith will cause God to show up and work wonders. To do so, you must learn to live in today, one day at a time; better yet, make the most of this moment. It's good to set goals and make plans, but if you're always living in the future, you're never really enjoying the present in the way God wants us to."
