A Chris Brown and Rihanna-inspired Law & Order?
Next week’s Law and Order: SVU sounds eerily like Chris Brown and Rihanna’s relationship.
Officially, of course, it’s not about them. (UPDATE: A rep for the show told EW “As always, SVU is fiction.”) The promo features a popular music couple where the man is an abuser and the woman keeps going back to him. Because this is SVU, there is of course a twist: The male singer winds up getting murdered.
Here is the episode description: ” ‘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 Jeffrey Tambor). …Special appearances by Perez Hilton, Dave Navarro and Wendy Williams.”
So all that, plus Perez Hilton. Are we feeling grossed out yet? The promo is below:
The episode airs next Wednesday at 9 p.m. on NBC.
