Chris Brown renames puppy

Chris Brown has renamed his new puppy after his new album ‘X’.

The ‘Fine China’ singer – who debuted his 13-week old English bulldog earlier this week – has decided to change the dog’s name from Chief to X.

The 24-year-old singer revealed his pet’s new name in a video posted on his website on Friday (24.05.13), saying: “Right now I’m just chilling with this little guy. His name’s X.

“This is also my album title so make sure you go get it. It’s coming out real soon.”

The newly single singer – who recently split from his on/off girlfriend Rihanna, who he is still on probation for beating in 2009 – splashed out on the new puppy to keep him company.

The singer, who has previously owned a pitbull, got the dog from Los Angeles-based breeders Shrinkabulls, which has helped a number of high profile stars including Cher Lloyd, Joe Jonas and Randy Jackson adopt bulldog puppies in the past.

The R&B star will unveil his new single ‘They Don’t Know’, featuring the late singer Aaliyah, on Monday (27.05.13), and claims: “It’s going to be amazing.”
