Girlfriend-beatin’ Chris Brown wasted no time finding a replacement since his troubled relationship with pop chanteuse Rihanna ended last month. He’s gotten back together with another ex-girlfriend. Hope she has a good right hook!
Brownâ€™s new/old lady is University of Mary Washington student Erica Jackson. â€œ Chris and Erica met in Virginia, where heâ€™s from,â€ a source close to the singer tells the NY Daily News. â€œThey dated back in the day and reconnected a few weeks ago when Chris was in town. Theyâ€™ve been spending a lot of time together, but things only really heated up over the last two weeks.â€
Chris’s peeps think the new girl is going to be good for him in the long run. â€œErica has a good head on her shoulders; sheâ€™s solid,â€ says the insider. Being solid is a must if you’re gonna ride around with Chris. Less bruising. The blabber goes on to say â€œSheâ€™s more of a plain Jane â€” cute though. She’s helping to ease Chrisâ€™ pain over Rihanna. He was mad in love with that girl.â€
According to pals, the â€œmadâ€ one in this love trifecta will be Rihanna herself. â€œShe is going to be pissed!â€ says a pal of the pop starlet. â€œRi is going to be so hurt that Chris has moved on so quickly and is parading this new girl around town.â€
What a dumbass! Princess Ri-Ri reportedly has done a 180, and is now assisting prosecutors in her assault case against Brown. She had been reluctant to participate, but all that’s changed now! Nice work, Chris. Hopefully you’ll get what’s coming to ya.
Chris Brown broke his silence today, a week after allegedly attacking his girlfriend, singer Rihanna, on a street in LA. He was arrested February 8 on “suspicion of making criminal threats.” Chris released a statement saying:
“Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired. I am seeking the counseling of my pastor, my mother and other loved ones and I am committed, with God’s help, to emerging a better person. Much of what has been speculated or reported on blogs and/or reported in the media is wrong. While I would like to be able to talk about this more, until the legal issues are resolved, this is all I can say except that I have not written any messages or made any posts to Facebook, on blogs or any place else. Those posts or writings under my name are frauds.”
The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office has said they need more information before deciding on whether to charge Brown.
Chris Brown was booked and released on $50,000 bail and given a March 5 court date.
Rihanna is said to be cooperating with police in the case against boyfriend Chris Brown’s alleged assault on her before the Grammys. The story is not pretty.
A source close to the investigation told E! News that Rihanna has alleged to police that Chris choked her, threatened to kill her and she lost consciousness as a result of the attack.
They were together at Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party late Saturday, and began fight. As to why they started fighting…there are reports that Chris received a text and that Paris Hilton was all over Chris outside of the party, and also rumors that Rihanna gave Chris the herpes…hmm. After midnight, things blew up. Brown pulled his rented Lamborghini to the side of a street in L.A.’s Hancock Park. Reportedly, Rihanna grabbed the car keys, threw them out the window…and Chris snapped.
After an unsuccessful search for the keys, he came back to the car, put his hands around her neck and said, “I’m going to kill you!” Rihanna told police that she lost consciousness, and when she came to, Chris was gone.
Officers were so concerned about her, they drove her to the hospital in their squad car instead of waiting for an ambulance. They took picture of her injuries at the scene and after she was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The pics are likely among the evidence presented to the D.A.
Chris was released from LAPD custody after posting $50,000 bail. His celebu-lawyer, Mark Geragos and Chris’s publicist have not responded to requests for comment on the situation. These are very serious charges that Chris is facing. It’s too bad, but he may have killed his career.
We’re learning LAPD took pictures of Rihanna’s injuries and they are “horrific.”
TMZ reports that the photos show major contusions on both sides of the singer’s face, there is serious swelling and bruising. Her lip is split and her nose bloody. There is confirmation there are bite marks on one of her arms and on several fingers.
Rihanna claims Chris Brown struck her with his fists and that’s what did the damage. There was reportedly no object used in the alleged attack, contrary to earlier reports. Apparently Chris Brown’s fists are the “deadly weapon” in the felony charge.
Rihanna refused treatment at the scene, cops took photos before she left. TMZ says the photos alone are “devastating proof of abuse.” An additional detail is that it was not Rihanna who called 911. Someone else nearby heard her screams and called in the emergency.
Chris is the last person fans expected to behave like such a thug, although there are rumors that Rihanna gave him herpes, and this is what set him off.
Woah, Grammy drama EXTREME. Chris Brown and Rihanna both backed out of the Grammys tonight. Up until a few minutes ago, the LAPD was still looking for Chris, after a domestic violence report was given. Brown and a woman that cops refused to identify were arguing inside of a vehicle around 12:30 this morning when suddenly things allegedly turned violent.
Cops say they received a 911 call, and when they arrived they noticed the woman had visible injuries. TMZ says she then identified Brown as her attacker. Police say Brown had left the scene by the time they arrived. According to the victim, she and Chris got into an argument which became violent — and cops say the woman in question had “visible injuries and identified Brown as her attacker.”
Girlfriend Rihanna’s people say she had a “car accident” and that is why her face is beat. Which it is. I guess you could call that a “car accident”… More to come.
