Chris Brown is reportedly dating Erica Jackson now, after the New York Daily News stated that Brown had moved on from his relationship with singer Rihanna. Erica Jackson, a University of Mary Washington Student, dated singer Chris Brown prior to his relationship with Rihanna, and is now reportedly back with her after calling it quits with Rihanna. The question about whether or not Chris Brown’s new girlfriend is indeed Erica Jackson once again, is something that the New York Daily News is confirming, but which may not be as close to a fact as they would have us believe.
Chris Brown has been having a lot of public relations problems recently, most of them stemming from his relationship with singer Rihanna. There are several charges that Chris Brown is facing in California, all because of an alleged attack he perpetrated on Rihanna. This caused him to take an immediate hit in the press as well in the advertising world (deservedly so if the allegations are true), and it has caused an almost instant fall from grace. Where Brown was once a golden boy that every product would want as a spokesperson, he has become a pariah that many company’s don’t want anything to do with.
Amidst all of the controversy surrounding the charges that Chris Brown is facing, it would have seemed to be a smart move by Brown to stay out of the public eye for a while. He is facing some real jail time if he were to be found guilty of the charges he is facing, and the public opinion of someone beating up a woman is not a very good one. If the acts turn out to be true, as is rumored by police and the press, then this could really spell doom for the rest of Chris Brown’s career. Keeping that in mind, one would expect Brown to remain secluded and out of the press in order to try and restore some of his credibility.
Now with the latest rumors being that Chris Brown and Erica Jackson are now dating again, it could end up causing him even more grief in the long-run. Erica Jackson is his ex-girlfriend, and someone from his past, but also a lighting rod at times like this for Brown. Merely being seen with him is going to cause a stir in the tabloids, and when respectable news outlets are reporting that they are dating again, it’s only going to get worse for Brown. Whether or not Erica Jackson is indeed Chris Brown’s girlfriend again is less relevant than the fact that he is hanging out with her, and it could only turn out badly if he hasn’t ended it with Rihanna. More details about this are surely to come out, but one thing is for sure; Erica Jackson is getting her 15 minutes of fame.
