Destiny's Child
  • Although Erica studied medical coding and bill transcription, somewhere deep inside she always dreamt of being a known face in the media and fashion industry. As luck would have it, her ticket to fame arrived when she got selected for a reality television show in 2012. Erica joined the star cast of VH-1’s reality TV series, titled “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta”. This opportunity not only allowed Erica to secure herself financially but also realize her childhood dream of being a successful media personality. After starring in 4 successful seasons of LHHATL, Erica chose to opt-out of season 5. She instead took a bold step to use her fame and recognition to launch her beauty and lifestyle brand ‘Klass6’.

The Southern Bell
  • Erica’s entrepreneurial spirit didn’t just stop at launching a fashion and beauty product line. Having survived a troubled childhood, Erica felt the need to voice her experiences of growing up in a disturbed family environment. Through Bell, the protagonist of her children book series ‘The Southern Bell’, Erica wishes to become the voice of those many children who find themselves trapped in a family of drug and alcohol addict parents. Erica hopes that her book series will help heal many other kids and their families, who find themselves in a similar situation.

Controversies
  • We often see that trouble follows fame. While Erica has always been known as a happy and spontaneous celebrity, who has roughed out many personal and professional situations, she has had her share of controversies as well. In 2016, the news and a video of the former Love & Hip Hop star Erica Dixon's arrest went viral over the web. As reported by TMZ, the TV celebrity was embroiled in a hostile altercation with several officers for over speeding. To make things worse, the police reportedly said that Erica did not cooperate and misbehaved with the officers on duty. As per sources, Erica tried to flee the scene that prompted the cops to pursue her and eventually book her for misconduct and non-cooperation. Erica was taken for citation to a nearby detention centre, but was released soon after.
  • While the police authorities showed Dixon as the one who wronged, Erica got the support of minority Americans. With the growing tensions between police and minorities in America, many questioned the allegations made by the police.
  • Besides this incident, Erica’s epic victory in the court also made headlines on the web. Erica and Lil Scrappy were locked in a fierce battle for Emani’s custody for a long time. However, the courts finally seemed to have made a judgement in favor of Erica. Not only does she get full custody of Emani, but she is also set to receive $45000 in child support.
