Law & Order: SVU is rolling out another episode ripped from the headlines…this time, four years later.
While Rihanna and Chris Brown are off frolicking in Hawaii for her birthday (and packing on the PDA for everyone to see), the procedural has begun promoting an upcoming inspired by the R&B singer’s 2009 Grammys eve assault on his on-again pop star girlfriend.
The official description for the episode (called “Funny Valentine”) reads, “A promising singer is brutally attacked by her boyfriend, a popular hip-hop star…but the victim refuses to aid the prosecution and…continues to put herself in danger.”
Hmmm. OK, cool, cool, cool. Subtle. The “Law & Order twist” is that someone dies, which either makes this some sort of Tarantino-esque revenge fantasy against Brown or just really, really, really messed up.
No word on whether Mom Breezy will cameo.
