Law & Order Episode Mirrors Chris Brown And Rihanna Relationship
Last night, NBC aired an episode of the popular television drama “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” with a story line that was all but identical to the real life rollercoaster relationship between Rihanna and Chris Brown. In case you missed it, here’s a brief synopisis:

The episode awkwardly began with a caption on the screen telling us it was not based on anyone in real life. We see a young singer named Misha performing a duet with Caleb Bryant — interesting initials “CB” — showing that they are really in love with each other.
Then, two seconds after kissing on Misha, Caleb moves onto a background singer that looks exactly like Karrueche Tran. Misha obviously sees what is going on, but instead of handling it like a man, Caleb beats her up in front of a handful of people
Caleb is a big jerk when he gets arrested for the beating that has now been blasted all over a popular gossip website. What’s also interesting is that when this happens, they actually have the words “Chris Brown & Rihanna” on screen. Comparing this beating to the one of Chris and RiRi were involved in is art imitating life.
A few other events happen that mirror the wild child lifestyles of Breezy and Rih-Rih, but things a take a slightly different and significantly more tragic turn as episode comes to a close.
Hit the flip to hear exactly how the episode ended and see whether or not the show took it too far.
