4. She Had a Sister
Though not much is known about her older sister, the rumor is that her sister was killed when Erica was a small child. She was around seven when her sister’s rumored relationship with a man who dealt drugs ended her own life.

5. She Was Rumored to Date Jeremy Meeks
Does the name ring a bell? If it doesn’t, perhaps hot felon rings a bell? He is the man whose mugshot went viral after the former Crips gang member was arrested a few years back. His handsome face and bright blue eyes instantly became a meme, and that meme landed him modeling contracts and so much more.

If she is one thing, it’s protective of her personal life. The lovely actress does not appear to share too much about her own personal life with the world, but she should not have to.
