It’s been four years…since ‘the incident’ involving Chris Brown and Rihanna and the media just can’t seem to let it go.
Earlier this year Law and Order SVU based an entire episode around it…and now it has crossed over into 50 Shades of Grey territory.
Author J. Lola penned a very loosly veiled version of their story, Fifty Shades Of Sin.
On Amazon, where it is being sold for the Kindle, Lola describes Fifty Shades Of Sin as:
‘the strange story of Robyn and Chris, and how they find love in a HOPELESS PLACE. From the moment they meet, their attraction is explosive. They fall hard for each other. They crave each other every minute of the day. However, they just can’t be together. This is a story about love, but it explores the difficulties, sacrifices, and pain that love brings as well.’
As if that isn’t enough, the lead character’s best friend is Melissa (named after Rihanna’s real life bestie Melissa), and Chris’ girlfriend, who is referred to as a ‘groupie’ appears to be based on Karreuche Tran.
Fifty Shades Of Sin hopes to be the first of many books about the not-so-fictional couple, and the author tells fans at the end of it that they can ‘Follow more of Robyn and Chris’ story, all the way down to what happened that sad night of the Grammys.’
Much like in the original book series, the idea of dominance is portrayed as sexy even when, in Chris and Robyn’s case, it turns violent.
In the story, Chris threatens to ‘beat the s***’ out of’ Robyn’s boyfriend, and follows it up with a threat that he will break the hand of a passer-by early on into their relationship.
Rihanna’s character is blinded by the sex, at one point saying: ‘I tried to imagine how glorious his muscular 6’4? frame would look naked.’
She goes on: ‘I did a double take, utterly ashamed that I was so attracted to this man that I could find such a dangerous situation erotic.’
There are several points in the book where the abusive nature of the couple’s relationship is glorified and Chris tells Robyn that he is ‘really f***ed up’ after they have sex for the first time.
‘I’m f***ed up too,’ Robyn replies. ‘Let’s be f***ed up together.’
The author warns on Amazon that the story contains ‘extreme sexual and emotional scenarios that might make some uncomfortable.’
Can you believe this? Needless to say, people are pretty pissed off about it. Wouldn’t you be?
