This was bound to happen.
Law & Order SVU loves ripping headlines from the news and putting their own spin on it. Next week, an episode eerily similar to Chris Brown and Rihanna’s tumultuous relationship hits the small screen.
Here’s a clip:
The difference between this episode and the real life saga, is that ultimately it looks like someone gets killed.
Here’s the full episode description:
Law and Order SVU 14×16 “Funny Valentine” – A promising singer is brutally attacked by her boyfriend, a popular hip hop star. ADA Barba (guest star Raul Esparza) works to build a case, but the victim refuses to aid the prosecution and, despite Detective Benson’s (Mariska Hargitay) best efforts, continues to put herself in danger. The case quickly spirals into a media circus, perpetrated by both the defendant and his uncompromising attorney (guest star Tambor). Also starring Ice-T (Detective Odafin Tutuola), Richard Belzer (Sergeant John Munch), Danny Pino (Detective Nick Amaro) and Kelli Giddish (Detective Amanda Rollins). Special appearances by Perez Hilton, Dave Navarro and Wendy Williams.
Who gets killed? Who does the killing? Inquiring minds will have to find out next week.
