Chris Brown is said to have moved on after his hopefully now-over relationship with singer Rihanna, who he brutalized in a much-reported incident before the Grammy Awards this February. According to the NY Daily News, Brown is dating an ex-girlfriend, a college student named Erica Jackson who attends the University of Mary Washington in his native Virgina. Earlier this month, Brown was photographed playing basketball at the college with an old friend who was interested in attending. That may have been when he reconnected with Jackson:
The R&B singer has started dating again since his troubled relationship with pop chanteuse Rihanna ended last month, and it appears he has gotten back together with another ex-girlfriend.
Brown’s new/old lady is University of Mary Washington student Erica Jackson. “[Chris and Erica] met in Virginia, where he’s from,” a source close to the singer says. “They dated back in the day and reconnected a few weeks ago when Chris was in town. They’ve been spending a lot of time together, but things only really heated up over the last two weeks.”
And while Jackson is “no Rihanna,” the general consensus among his friends and family is that the new girl is going to be good for him in the long run. “[Erica] has a good head on her shoulders; she’s solid,” says our insider. Chris and his new gal pal were spotted leaving a Sunset Blvd. tattoo parlor on Saturday afternoon.
“She’s more of a plain Jane — cute though,” says our source. At the very least, she’s helping to ease Chris’ pain over Rihanna. He was mad in love with that girl.”
According to pals, the “mad” one in this love trifecta will be Rihanna herself. “She is going to be pissed!” says a pal of the pop starlet. “Ri is going to be so hurt that Chris has moved on so quickly and is parading this new girl around town.”

It’s doubtful that Rihanna gives a crap who Brown sees now, and the Daily News‘ source is probably Brown or one of his buddies. Rihanna was away partying with friends in Hawaii the first week of April, and has been to New York and Barbados since. According to In Touch she was invited to Hawaii by Kanye West and thoroughly enjoyed herself with friends:
In the week leading up to Chris’ court date, she put some serious distance between herself and her ex, traveling halfway around the world. On April 1, she checked into the Kahala Resort & Hotel in Honolulu where Kanye West has been working on his next album.
“Kanye invited Rihanna to get away from Los Angeles,” her friend explains. Rihanna, 21, and her pals were seen flirting with an attractive hotel guest inside the lobby bar, The Veranda. “Rihanna and her two friends ordered champagne,” Samantha ‘Peanut’ Jackson, a witness inside the bar, reveals to In Touch. “They were dancing, and at one point, Rihanna and her pals started flirting with the guys sitting at a table near them. She seemed very happy.”

Rihanna then went to NY and then on to Barbados to be with her family. This item about Brown’s reconciliation with an ex-girlfriend sounds like it’s timed to make Rihanna jealous. We just heard that Brown was depressed and drinking too much, and now he’s supposedly in this great romance that should make Rihanna upset.
Brown’s on-again ex-girlfriend might not have enough time to feel his wrath when things inevitably go wrong. He has another court date scheduled for April 29 and faces up to four years and eight months maximum in jail, although his lawyers are trying to work out a plea that keeps him on the outside.

well if shes got a hed on her shoulders than why would she get back together with him? didnt she ead the newspaper? or is she getting paid for it to make him look good in court? she could be like:” oh he is so wonderful, he never did me any harm, why would I get back with him if he did? etc…”good move, Chris!!! I hope Rihanna will get so mad that she finally breaks her silence. She should be a role model for the girls out there!
My thoughts exactly Marilyn. If this girl is so smart she wouldn’t be getting with a guy who almost killed his previous girlfriend? This is just a PR stunt…especially since they seem to be so focused on Rihanna being jealous and this new girl being “better than her.” As if Chris would be a normal and loving boyfriend if Rihanna hadn’t pushed him to assault her. What a joke.
Hopping into another relationship is NOT the answer for Chris Brown. What an idiot. Where’s his momma!!!
so he’s not supposed to be with anyone ever again?
and i love this site show’s how much you guys know and believe by reading these tabloids and sources, anyone who knows about their relationship knows how clingy and obsessive she is about him.
she’s dicktamized! (seriously, hand on my bible)
That’s just stupid… Anon.
I don’t care what anyone says if Rihanna was clingy, or checked his phones, etc, etc — NOTHING gave Chris Brown the right to hit her, NOTHING.
There is NO excuse for a man to hit a woman ever; I also believe a woman should never hit a man.
With that said, I know that if I hit my boyfriend it wouldn’t make a dint on him, he’s way more muscular than I am, but if he hit me I’d be obliterated.
It makes me sick seeing young women who think Chris Brown is so awesome and cool still for hitting Rihanna. HE ISN’T! Whether or not he faces jail time, he should be sentenced to some community service, helping abused woman get their lives back on track so he can understand the EMOTIONAL DAMAGE abuse causes.
If a man hits you ladies, call the cops. Don’t let the cycle of abuse continue.
*gets off soapbox*
This man is scum… he should be so ashamed of himself.. how terrible of him, and what a disgusting human piece of s*** !!!!!!!
Anon – I so agree.
RiRi is has low self esteem and is very insecure. Women like that are dangerous. She’s probably stalking Chris’ new girlfriend as we speak.
I think it’s ironic that the article states that this girl is helping “ease Chris’s pain.” How do you think his emotional “pain” compares to the physical pain he caused Rihanna? Let me squeeze out a tear for him. And to everyone who is defending him, talking about how clingy etc. she is, IT DOESN’T MATTER. There is no excuse! If she really was that bad, there were other ways to deal with it.
anonymous: “and i love this site show’s how much you guys know and believe by reading these tabloids and sources, anyone who knows about their relationship knows how clingy and obsessive she is about him. she’s dicktamized!”
You know what I love, the fact that you are criticize the rest of us in this site about addressing the relationship between Rihanna and Christ based on tabloids then you go on about how Rihanna is clingy and obsessive about him and how you oh so nicely put it, is “dicktamized”, how do YOU know and can be sure about that, are you a personal friend? If not, then take a sit next to us.
not true. Seen with Nathalie from Girlicious for a while now
I don’t believe for a minute that Brown and Rhianna are really over. I wish it were so, but I think the separation is a PR move and they will return to one another once the heat dies down on this story.
Hojo – I can’t understand all the contradictions in your statements. Rihanna was beyond clingy, she actually stalked this man – having him followed while he toured,slapping on him even before this incident. And it is NOT right for ANYONE to hit anyone else. Forget about the physical strength of a man. No WOMAN SHOULD HIT ON A MAN.Your statements erk me, women fought for equal rights – do you know how dumb it sounds to say no Man should hit on a woman – Just leave it at noone should hit on anyone else. Don’t PROVE the fact that we are NOT a man’s equal – because we fought to be that. I have never seen America get so upset over anything as I have this Chris Brown incident – and I think it’s deeper than the fact he hit Rihanna – becaue too many other pop stars have done that and worse,(Tommy Lee,Robert Blake,Phil Spector) yet they weren’t in the news 24/7 like Chris is. What is the real problem you people have with Chris??
And Chris is a song writer – his reps says that he doesn’t even know the girl that was in the tatoo parlor – but if he were seen with somebody from girl-a whoever – it’s business -he wrote for the pussy cat dolls and he writes for girlilcious. And the odds are they are still together – and why shouldn’t they be – you hypocritacal, jealous and judgemental, perfect people that have never had an argument in a relationship.I wish them nothing but the best and I hope America finds a past time – other than degrading those that they are jealous of.
asdf, i have to agree..i dnt understand y people hate this boy so much??? Besides all the negative reports about him have been crap with no real truth to them..First he was drinking himself silly and loosing weight but from the pic he looks fine..Becasue they got that wrong now he has a new girlfriend and they have an issue..Again it is all lies, his camp has already put out a statement that he met that girl in the tattoo place and does not know her..Get over it people, no matter how you try to destroy this young man’s life its not working..wether you try and make riri look like she has moved on we all know this chick is dickmatized like someone put it..She was in kansas at a concert on saturday, when she heard the rumors about the new girl, she got back to LA in hurry..This chick is hooked on this guy and no matter how you want to put, noone is buying it so just get off his back already and move on GEEZ..Also i like how you refer to his “lawyers”, the boy has one unless donald etra has now joined his legal team..From his last conf, i could swear he was on chris B’s payroll, go figure????
I was wondering for awhile now whether or not she had ever hit him. It always goes that way with young intense love. It is absolutely likely that at some point in time she hit him too, and there is no way that that is acceptable either. Both of them can just hop on planes and be surrounded by all sorts of influence, so it is not likely that even with therapy these two would have ever made it. I am with asdf NO one has the right to hit, smack, push, it is all the same, you can’t lay your hands on another person man or woman.
I’m noticing that everyone who is posting to support Chris Brown has terrible spelling, and no idea how to use grammar or form decent sentences. This, along with the horses**t you are sprouting out, leads me to believe you are complete idiots.
Hey Kate, it also leads me to believe they are the same person, considering the diction and repeated spelling and grammar errors.
To the person who is posting all this nonsense about Chris Brown and Rihanna: unless you know them personally, leave it alone. We here are commenting on what is in the news and what we saw before us. Chris Brown beat the hell out of Rihanna in a car before the Grammy’s. That’s it. Case closed.
It doesn’t matter if she’s hit him before. It doesn’t matter if she’s clingy or obsessed or checks his messages. It doesn’t even matter if she hit him THAT night. None of that gives him any reason, cause or excuse to beat her like he did. NONE. Get your heads (or head, since you are probably one person) out of your butts and stop trying to change people’s minds. It isn’t going to happen. \
And you are the reason why young girls think it’s ok if their boyfriend hits them if the girl hits the guy. I’m sorry, but there is a huge difference between Rihanna hitting Chris Brown and Chris Brown beating Rihanna bloody. There is a difference when a woman slaps a man and a man punches a woman in the face.
No one should use physical violence against a supposed “loved one”, but men in relationships are typically bigger and stronger than the woman they are with. I say “typically” because it obviously isn’t always the case, but men typically like being stronger and bigger than the woman they are with.
There are more pictures of Chris Brown’s new Girlfriend here.
Thank you Hashbrowns for understanding where I was coming from.
And to asdf, my problem with Chris Brown is that what he did is giving young woman the wrong idea about how they should be treated.
The proof is in the media and survey’s and general response to what he did. For godsakes he’s pleading NOT GUILTY. Who the hell else did it!
Maybe for those of you who missed it, jump back a few pages and look at the video Celebitchy posted of Keira Knightley’s PSA about abuse. If that doesn’t stir you, I don’t know what will.
Let me rephrase myself, since apparently I contradicted myself easlier: No man, woman or child should ever be hit, ever. There is never an excuse ever!
Those that do hit, should be punished to the fullest extent of the law, and after care should be done so they are kept in check – or they should be put back in the slammer. Or have someone twice as large as them beat the shit out of them so they understand what it feels like.
And that’s, that!
Can someone please give me some kind of proof that Rihanna was “clingy” and after that, please tell me why it was then ok for him to beat the piss out of her.
And god forbid the writers on here actually take the side of the victim. That’s horrifying! /sarcasm
his ex-girlfriend must be as dumb as rocks to go back with him. did she not see rhianna’s banged up face all over the news?
regarding my 1:52 post; reading and comprehension is fundamental i in no way said that is why he hit her! they were two separate thoughs!
one was his love life
the second them not being together!
my goodness people im not even going to bother indulging you in what i know seeing as i am from the little island of barbados and involved with people in relationships with her as well.
again READING AND COMPREHENSION IS FUNDAMENTAL, everything you guys said thereafter was null and void.
I just want to respond to one element of your comment – “…becaue [sic] too many other pop stars have done that and worse,(Tommy Lee,Robert Blake,Phil Spector) yet they weren’t in the news 24/7 like Chris is.”
Umm, seriously? It’s funny because 20 minutes ago I watched a Phil Spector update on my TV, I seldom read any story regarding Tommy Lee/Pam Anderson that doesn’t bring up his abuse, and I remember the Robert Blake trial being all over the tabloids for its duration. Oh, and just for fun I’ll mention another one, OJ Simpson has been associated with the abuse (and murder) that he inflicted on Nicole Brown Simpson for at the last 16 years (or so) since her murder. Furthermore, I suspect that these people will always be associated with their abuse to some extent. Oh but wait, Chris Brown is the first person to have ever received publicity for abusing a woman, so I guess they won’t be associated with their crimes forever. I’m not sure how young you are, but I do believe that the increased accessibility of the internet (and thus celebrity gossip sites) may have a lot to do with the frequency of these stories, but before this, these stories were huge at the time, even if it was only in the supermarket tabloids.
What type of girl would want to be with a guy that just RECENTLY beat up his girlfriend like 2 months ago and just RECENTLY became single?
Clearly she must be in it for money or fame.
Good for Chris! Im a mother to a son his age & a daughter 1 yr younger & another 3 yrs older. She & a nationally known rapper have a son 2gether. No way in hell or high water would I tolerate any older broad put hands on my child while he’s driving or he better defend himself! I said it from the beginning, Rihanna has no real talent, is an airhead for her age, & never finished school. I heard how controlling she was w/ Chris b4 the fight & knew the fame would make her think she was invincible. Than she called the police, pretending she was someone else & lied to them about passing out amongst a few other things. That’s why she felt so bad later & that’s y she can’t be trusted. I heard Chris’s ex always brought the best out of him which Rihanna couldn’t b/c of her dark side. Sean Penn beat Madonna w/ a bat & tied her to chair holding her captive, they didn’t lock him up. And he wasn’t a yound kid!
to be honest.. i’m glad chris brown has moved on 🙂
Rihanna’s a bitch & i hate her!
and he could do WAAAAY better.
i know for sure that nothing will happen to Chris Brown.
he’s such an innocent guy and I don’t blame him for what he done. serves her right.
i love Chris Brown <3
Any man who beats up a woman is pathetic in my book – regardless of who started what.
He needs to grow up.
i believe chris did a wrong thing by beatin her up. but that serves her right. i hate her so much. and will he even broke her skully head. all d same, chris fucked up so much.
