Well, on the bright side, Girlicious finally got their name in headlines. Natalie Mejia, one of four women to win a spot in the girl-group via the 2007 reality TV show Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious, was arrested on suspicion of possessing cocaine for sale. A car containing Mejia was pulled over for speeding in Glendale, CA Tuesday night, with police finding more than a dozen bags of cocaine in her purse. We’d make a punny reference to one of their songs, but we can’t remember any.
Despite the public disinterest that met their 2008 debut—and the departure of member Tiffanie Anderson last year—the remaining trio were in the process of recording an album for Universal Records Canada (where apparently their last album went platinum!) at the time of Mejia’s arrest. The singer reportedly told police she was unaware of the drugs, and preliminary investigation suggest they may have been placed by the car’s driver, Peter Asencio, who was also arrested for driving with a suspended license. Neither the group nor Mejia, released on bail, has commented on the charges.

There are a couple reports out this morning that allege that Chris Brown has taken up with a new lady friend. As we all know, he’s currently facing charges stemming from an alleged violent outburst involving ex-love, Rihanna.
The NY Daily News insists that Brown is busying himself with a former flame named Erica Jackson, a student at Virginia’s Mary Washington University. A source says that, “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.”
But according to the Examiner.com, Chris has been cozying up to Natalie Mejia from the pop group Girlicious, and the site says that the two were spotted at a tattoo parlor on Saturday. Interestingly enough, the Daily News also says he visited a tat joint – but with Erica by his side. Is the singer juggling two ladies, or are the tabs’ stories just screwy? [Photo: GettyImages]
