R&B singer Chris Brown is known to spark controversies. But it seems that all the court cases and arrests have taken a toll on him as he recently took to Twitter to announce to the world that he plans to quit music after the release of his upcoming album, X.

“Don’t worry mainstream America, after this X album, it’ll probably be my last album,” he tweeted, reported The Huffington Post. “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!” he followed.

The 24-year-old star probably referred to the domestic assault of ex-girlfriend, Rihanna on the night before Grammy Awards 2009, as ‘the mistake’. While he pointed out that he was done with his string of constant mistakes, he recently turned himself in to the police for a hit-and-run case, reported Entertainment Weekly.

This news has come as quite a surprise for his more than 13 million Twitter followers, who have lately been caught up by Brown’s highly inspirational tweets. One of his tweets said:

While fans sulk over his rather unprecedented retirement news, a source has completely dismissed it rendering it to be just a result of a rough patch. “It’s not true. Chris can’t be killed. He won’t be defeated. The media is strong, but he isn’t about to let them ruin him. He was built to last. It’s a rough patch for him and like all great [men], he’ll get through it,” told the source to

Previously, many singers have announced retirement plans only to return back to the music scene after a couple of years’ hiatus. So, it won’t be wrong to assume that the same may hold true for Chris Brown as well.

The singer’s sixth studio album, X, will hit stores on August 20.
