Chris Brown has claimed this his next album will be his last, after becoming fed up with the fame he has received from his notorious attack on Rihanna in 2009.

The R&B singer opened up on Twitter earlier today (6 August) and revealed to his fans that he is "over" the negative publicity he has been getting due to a "mistake" he made four years ago.

Although he does not explicitly state that this "mistake" was the brutal incident involving ex-girlfriend Rihanna, many have presumed that this is what he is referring to.

Chris tweeted: "Don't worry mainstream America. After this X album, it'll probably be my last album."

"Being famous is amazing when it's for your music and talent. I'm tired of being famous for a mistake I made when i was 18. I'm cool & over it!"

The award-winning star is currently gearing up for the release of his sixth studio album, X, which features the popular single 'Fine China'.

However his new music is often overshadowed by his controversial life outside the recording studio, including a highly publicised on-off relationship with RiRi and a recent run-in with the law.

Earlier this year, Chris was accused of rear-ending a car in Los Angeles and leaving the scene - something which has now landed him in hot water with courts, as he has been accused of violating his probation.

At the time of the apparent hit-and-run in May, 24-year-old Chris was still on a five-year probation for his assault on Rihanna, which occurred after a pre-Grammy party in February 2009.

Last month, a judge revoked Chris' probation and he could now be facing up to four years in jail, should the courts decide that the terms of his probation were in fact violated.

But Chris denies that he was in the wrong and has pleaded "not guilty".

Regarding the hit-and-run charges he tweeted: "I did everything I was suppose to do during the so called hit n run, I provided the correct info. There were no injuries or damages. C'mon!!"

Clearly, the public backlash over the years and the constant criticism has now become unbearable for the young star - so much so that he is contemplating giving up music for good.

Although, this shocking announcement hasn't gone down too well with Chris' fans.

One fan replied to the singer: "Ignore the people who continue to hate you for that. Focus on your music and yourself", while another simply wrote: "Stay strong".

Do you think Chris should retire from the music industry? Let us know below.
