Chris Brown has reportedly found a new partner to beat on cuddle.
According to The New York Daily News, the violent singer has started dating an ex-girlfriend again, University of Mary Washington student Erica Jackson.
“[Chris and Erica] met in Virginia, where he’s from,” said a source. “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."
For Jackson's sake, we hope the heat took place between the sheets and not between Brown's hands.
If Chris Brown has already moved on from Rihanna, does that make him a worse human being? Or is that impossible at this point?
The insider added that Brown "was mad in love with" Rihanna, though he clearly had a strange way of showing it.
Meanwhile, a rep for Brown denies a report that the singer and and his new gal pal went on a date at a Sunset Blvd. tattoo parlor over the weekend.
“He did go to a tattoo parlor with someone from the studio named Dean," said the rep. "There was a woman there who was a friend of Dean. There is no truth to this at all. Chris does not know the woman nor does he know the name of the woman.”
You'll forgive us, anonymous representative guy, if we fail to believe anything from Brown's side these days, right?
** Update: Other sources confirm that Brown entered the tattoo parlor with a female. But they claim it was Girlicious member Natalie Mejia. As always, getting to the truth in any Chris Brown story isn't easy.
