We've never heard of someone paying alimony to an ex-girlfriend, but fuck it, when it comes to Chris Brown all bets are off. With that guy anything is possible.

So here comes the news that as part of his breakup with Karrueche Tran, he's basically forking some cash over in her direction.

“Neither Rihanna nor Chris want to make things harder for her than they already are," says a source. "Chris wants to set her up financially and do right by her– he wants her to stay in his life if possible."

Well, that seems awfully kind of him. You know what they call that behind-the-scenes right? Hush money.

But let's not digress. Because it seems Rihanna, too, is trying to keep things civil.

“Rihanna called Karrueche for a proper heart-to-heart," the source says. "They needed to air a few problems. “The girls talked for close to two hours. Rih answered all of the questions and Karrueche had a few home truths to tell her.”
