Rihanna, Chris Brown Inspired ‘SVU’? You Be The Judge With Exclusive Preview!

MTV News has an exclusive first look at Wednesday's episode, which is rumored to be based on Brown's 2009 assault of Rihanna.

“Law & Order: SVU” writers have frequently ripped storylines right from the headlines, but they may have taken some cues from the gossip pages for this week’s episode. Dubbed “Funny Valentine,” Wednesday’s episode follows “a familiar story of two celebrities intertwined by abuse.”

After a trailer for the episode was released last week, many have deduced that the episode is heavily inspired by Chris Brown’s assault of girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.

Ahead of this week’s premiere, MTV News has an exclusive first look at a clip from the buzzed-about episode. The clip features Detective Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) trying to persuade a female pop singer, Micha Green, (Tiffany Robinson) to press charges against her pop star boyfriend, Caleb Bryant (Roca), after he assaults her. But, she refuses to be portrayed as a “victim” and take it to trial. The episode also includes cameos from Perez Hilton, Dave Navarro and Wendy Williams.
