Law & Order: SVU storyline plays on Rihanna and Chris Brown abuse saga

An upcoming storyline on Law & Order: SVU bears a striking resemblance to the real-life events that surrounded Rihanna and Chris Brown’s relationship.

“A promising singer is brutally attacked by her boyfriend, a popular hip hop star,” reads the episode description.

“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.”

Rihanna and Chris Brown’s relationship ended in 2009 when Brown physically abused Rihanna. The pair are believed to be back together now.
