What better way to add to the buzz around Chris Brown and Rihanna’s reunion, than with a television depiction of their off and on relationship. NBC’s Law & Order: SVU premiering a new episode, inspired by the headlining pre-Grammy domestic violence incident between the two pop-singing lovebirds back in 2009.
The “Funny Valentine” episode stars Tiffany Robinson, who plays the a Rihanna-inspired character named Micha Charles, and Eugene Jones as Micha’s Chris Brown-resembled boyfriend, Caleb Brown. Brown apparently regularly beats Charles, “which leads Detective Benson ( Mariska Hargitay) to wonder why she stays in the relationship. She also refuses to cooperate in prosecution despite the efforts of assistant district attorney Barba (Raul Esparza) to build a case.”
View the preview clip above. We couldn’t help but chuckle when Brown tells the press: “Y’all know me! I’m a lover, not a fighter.”
