The 'Diamonds' singer posted a message saying "being single sucks" on Instagram.

Rihanna has sparked fresh rumours her recent reported conciliation with Chris Brown has already ended after posting a message claiming she is single.

The 'We Found Love' singer originally split from 'Turn Up The Music' star Chris back in 2009 but over the past year has constantly been at the centre of rumours they have reunited as a couple.

Since Chris Brown split from girlfriend Karrueche Tran over the summer, the two have been regularly spotted out at clubs and events with each other, even collaborating on Rihanna's song 'Nobody's Business'.

However, a new Rihanna post in Instagram suggests they have called time on the romance.

"Being single sucks," Rihanna's "R" postcard on Instagram reads. "The only thing I get to do anymore is whatever the f**k I want to do."

The 'Where Have You Been' singer arrived back in Los Angeles this week after a promotional stint across Europe for her new album 'Unapologetic', and tweeted fans last week to reveal she has been recording voiceover work for the new DreamWorks Animation Happy Smekday

Rihanna and Chris Brown have yet to publicly comment on the nature of their relationship despite all of the media speculation around them.
