Chris Brown thinks Rihanna has gone "up" by dating Leonardo DiCaprio.
The 'Yeah 3x' hitmaker - who was convicted of assaulting the 'Diamonds' star in 2009 - insists he isn't "jealous" of his former girlfriend's rumoured new boyfriend and thinks she has made a good choice with the Hollywood hunk.
He said: "I respect her enough to respect her privacy and her space, because I can't believe everything I hear in the news. But what I see, I'll be like, 'OK cool, there might be something else going on.'
"I'm gonna have to give her that, because you know what? Ain't nowhere else you coulda went though. High five.
"You can only go up, and that's the upper, upper echelon... I'm not even a hater. I'll give you a slap on the back, booty, everything, 'Hey, do your thing. Good game.'
"In that situation, I just tip my hat. I'm not a hater. I'm not envious, I don't feel jealous. Do your thing. I can't have it all, brotha."
The 25-year-old singer also admitted he didn't get in touch with Rihanna on her 27th birthday last week - because he was afraid any contact would earn him a "slap" from on/off girlfriend Karrueche Tran.
Asked if he had wished Rihanna happy birthday, he told radio station Hot 97: "Nah, I ain't getting' slapped. My girl would've slapped me."
Despite his frank comments, the 'Run It' star has now vowed to stop speaking about his former flame.
He tweeted after the interview: I've given the world enough opinions. I'm not doing no more interviews unless it's about my art or music. It's nothing else anyone needs.
"Don't ask me about Drake or Rihanna. Anything u need to hear is in all our music. #500 (sic)"
