The paper reports that Brown, who is facing felony criminal charges for allegedly assaulting ex-girlfriend Rihanna, has re-united with former flame Erica Jackson who is a student at a Virginia university.

“[Chris and Erica] met in Virginia, where he’s from,” the paper quotes a source close to the singer. “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.”

Unlike his last high profile relationship, Erica is not involved in the entertainment industry.

“She’s more of a plain Jane — cute though,” says the Daily News. "At the very least, she’s helping to ease Chris’ pain over Rihanna. He was mad in love with that girl.”

However, Brown's camp is denying a new relationship. A rep for Brown tells the Daily News, “He did go to a tattoo parlor with someone from the studio named Dean. 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.”
