Chris Brown accepts his award

Since Rihanna is no longer taking Chris Brown’s calls, Brown has moved on to greener, harder to bruise pastures. Reports say he’s rekindled his romance with his ex-girlfriend, University of Mary Washington student, Erica Jackson. They were spotted leaving a tattoo parlor together on Saturday. Brown’s reps deny this.

“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.”

A source close to Chris says that Erica will be good for him. She’s grounded and will help ease Chris’ pain over Rihanna.

Good. I always say that beating the crap out of your ex-girlfriend is emotionally draining. Lucky for Chris he has someone to help him through this. I don’t think he would have made it on his own. Rihanna may be scarred for life and have developed a natural distrust of men, but Chris is the one really suffering. You can stitch up the face and wait 4 days for the swelling to go down and then another 2 to 3 months for it to heal, but the same can’t be done with a broken heart. Awww, poor Chris.
