Chris Brown Celebrates Birthday With Karrueche Tran In Tow

21st Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party - Red Carpet

For Chris Brown, the age-old saying applies: If you can’t love the one you want, love the one you’re with. Or something like that. While Rihanna’s cake, cake, cake, is in New York City for her Diamonds World Tour, birthday boy Breezy stepped out to look for something sweet elsewhere, in Hollywood.

The “Fine China” singer began his weekend-long celebration for his 24th birthday at Emerson Theater Friday (May 3) and while his on-again, off-again girlfriend Rih Rih was thousands of miles away, his on-again, off-again, somewhat on-again, kind of off-again ex Karrueche Tran was in the house to help him blow out the candles and eat copious amounts of cupcakes.

Tran was all smiles hanging out with Brown and his entourage with new BFF Christina Milian in tow. Weirdly, David Hasslehoff was there, too. As was Chloe Green. From the looks of the pictures, CB, dressed in khaki chinos, white tee and lumberjack shirt, had a pretty nice time out on the town without his Bahan bombshell by his side.

The next day, the Unapologetic chanteuse sat courtside at Barclays for Game 7 of the NBA playoffs between the Brooklyn Nets and the Chicago Bulls.

“I could trip a referee….#BROOKLYN meet you here tomorrow!!!” she tweeted.

Meanwhile, out in Vegas, Brown, spent round 2 of his born day celebration at 1 OAK nightclub at the Mirage. If the tweet he sent out last week, “LA, VEGAS, NEW YORK! Celebrating this WEEK on to the next week! #birthdayturnup,”  is to believed, he’ll end up in New York today, where Rihanna is scheduled to perform Sunday and Monday at Barclays.

Whether or not the two lovebirds manage to celebrate Brown’s b-day today, together, we’d all still like to wish the X crooner well.

Happy Birthday Chris Brown!
