"I'm content with who I am, so whoever decides to move on or do their thing, that's cool.

You gotta consider that was in the thug Chris Brown era when I was…that was when I was all up on runnin' up on dudes," he began to say, but confessed that he feels like Rihanna did that to hurt him."In a way I do…It's understandable.
