[video] Law and Order SVU does Chris Brown and Rihanna inspired episode

I have not watched Law and Order in years for the record. They have probably done 10,000 episodes and their constant recycling of recent news headlines is kind of boring to me right now. That being said, they still have a relatively consistent hardcore fan base that will probably eat up this Chris Brown and Rihanna inspired episode.

[UPDATE #6] Chris Brown Apologizes, Seeks Counseling


via Yahoo

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – R&B star Chris Brown, who was arrested last weekend on suspicion of attacking a woman widely believed to be the pop star Rihanna, said on Sunday he was “sorry and saddened” about the incident, and was seeking counseling.

The 19-year-old performer of such U.S. chart-toppers as “Run It!” and “Forever” has been in hiding since the alleged fracas with his girlfriend in a rented Lamborghini.

He hired a public relations company that specializes in crisis management to issue a five-sentence statement in which he also said many media and blog reports have been wrong.

“Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired,” he said. “I am seeking the counseling of my pastor, my mother and other loved ones and I am committed, with God’s help, to emerging a better person.”

He did not mention his father, who was quoted on Friday as telling People magazine that his son was “very remorseful.”

Police and prosecutors have not officially disclosed that Rihanna was the victim of Brown’s attack just after midnight on February 8. But unidentified police sources told the Los Angeles Times that Rihanna was the victim, and numerous media outlets have reported the same information.

Brown turned himself in to police, and he was booked on suspicion of making criminal threats against a woman. The Los Angeles Police Department is still investigating, and a spokeswoman for the L.A. District Attorney’s Office said a decision has not yet been made on whether to file charges.

Celebrity websites and magazines have reported that the incident happened shortly after Brown left a Beverly Hills party with Rihanna as his passenger. The 20-year-old native of Barbados suffered bruises on her face and a split lip, according to several reports.

Brown added in his statement: “Much of what has been speculated or reported on blogs and/or reported in the media is wrong. While I would like to be able to talk about this more, until the legal issues are resolved, this is all I can say except that I have not written any messages or made any posts to Facebook, on blogs or any place else. Those posts or writings under my name are frauds.”

Despite the serious nature of the allegations, many of Brown’s showbiz comrades have defended him. Most recently, hip-hop star Kanye West said, “Can’t we give Chris a break?” during a taping of VH1’s “Storytellers” on Friday.

Persia of VH1 White Rapper Show Faces Prison Over Gun Charge; Blames Domestic Violence

via Allhiphop

Aspiring female rapper Persia of VH1’s White Rapper Show is facing jail time over ramifications from an ongoing, two year domestic violence dispute.

persiaAccording to Persia, real name Rachel Mucerino, the issue stems from a continuing domestic dispute with an estranged ex-boyfriend who has threatened to kill her, her mother, and six-month old daughter.

Although a restraining order can be obtained, the law prevents any arrest until an actual crime is committed.

Also, Persia felt the authorities were not addressing the issue to its full extent since her ex is allegedly a valuable police informant.

She alleges that the last straw came when the ex-boyfriend caused her mother to have a heart attack by dousing the back of her house with gasoline.

In addition, the ex allegedly called VH1 and threatened extortion by revealing the winner of the White Rapper Show before its airing. Continue reading

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) — Don Cornelius, the former host of the television show “Soul Train,” was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence, police said Saturday.
