Because NBC has apparently never heard the phrase “too soon,” Law & Order: SVU is doing an episode that bears a striking resemblance to the story of Rihanna and Chris Brown. The self-described “familiar story” is about a totally fictional popstar who continues to hang out with her totally fictional popstar boyfriend after he abuses her.
As the official episode description says,
“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.”
The episode is also set to feature guest appearances by Perez Hilton, Dave Navarro and Wendy Williams. Check out the trailer up above and watch the episode next Wednesday, February 27, at 9 on NBC.
