Law & Order: SVU has released a promotional video for its upcoming Feb. 27 episode titled “Funny Valentine.” The episode tells the story of a singer who was beaten by her hip-hop star boyfriend, and yet remains inexplicably drawn to him. Sound familiar? The show it putting its usual “ripped-from-the-headlines” twist on Chris Brown and Rihanna‘s 2009 incident.
Law & Order: SVU Episode Inspired By Chris Brown’s 2009 Assault On Rihanna
We are all aware of the unfortunate incident between Chris and Rihanna in 2009. Rihanna’s physical and emotional wounds may have healed, but Law & Order: SVU is bringing back some painful memories in their next episode! Though the episode is not officially based on the singers’ relationship, it tells a story that is very obviously inspired by them. Hopefully RiRi and Chris will continue sharing their love for one another in spite of the episode!
