Chris Brown and Rihanna might’ve patched things up and moved on (together), but the fascination with their infamous 2009 assault incident hasn’t vanished. Last night, a new episode of “Law & Order: SVU” debuted, more or less mimicking the real life events.
The episode follows a fictional singer, Micha Green, who is physically assaulted by her hip-hop performer boyfriend Caleb. She refuses to press charges and stays with him despite his volatile temper and history of abuse. Finally, Micha is found dead and authorities believe that Caleb was the cause. The episode featured real-life media personalities like Wendy Williams and Perez Hilton and even made reference to Chrianna when Detective Munch says of the couple, “They should double date with Chris Brown and Rihanna.”
Actress Tiffany Robinson who plays Rihanna in the episode told MTV News that she took it all very seriously. “They really pushed it so that we can really look at the seriousness of it,” Robinson said. “I felt like they drove it home even more. They kept it real, and they went there, regardless of what controversy it would bring. It was about telling the truth. Originally when I saw it, they hadn’t ended it that way. This is what happens [in abusive relationships] when we look at the numbers. This is usually where it ends up.”
