Chris Brown says he isn’t quite ready to get back into the dating scene.
“I’ve been kinda chillin’,” he tells MTV News. “I mean, I’m Chris Brown. I’m not saying it like that, but it’s just, like, girls are gonna be around. I love women. But I would say I’ve just been chillin’. I haven’t really been trying to get into a relationship or trying to date anybody. I’ve just kinda been working on me. Like I said, just really getting me straight.”
Though the couple reunited briefly after the incident, they’ve been ordered by a court to maintain their distance for five years.
