Rosie Perez has settled her beef with Law & Order: SVU.
The Do the Right Thing Star claims she was a real-life special victim who was injured on set back in 2009 when her character got into a scuffle with another performer for a scene on the NBC procedural. Perez, 47, alleges she suffered serious neck and back injuries and nerve damage and ultimately had corrective surgery. During a 2010 interview with Entertainment Tonight, she compared her injuries to shaken baby syndrome.
Now, the New York Daily News reports that the actress has reached a settlement with Northern Entertainment Productions and DDF Films, the companies behind the show...
And while the amount she received isn't being disclosed, all parties involved are undoubtedly relieved to put this matter to rest.
We wish Perez well and are glad she can put this behind her. Legal drama is no fun when it's real. Plus, without Detective Benson and Harry Connick Jr. guest appearances, we prefer to stick to a script.
