“Funny Valentine,” huh? “A familiar story of two celebrities”?
Clearly, popular TV show Law & Order: SVU will touch very closely on Rihanna and Chris Brown‘s highly publicized and controversial romantic drama in an upcoming episode. After specualtion swarmed the ‘net, a rep for the NBC show told Entertainment Weekly, “As always SVU is fiction.”
But the media and Chrianna’s fans quickly eyed the similarities (her battered face splashed across news outlets; his plea of innocence) between the on-screen drama and the couple’s real-life pre-Grammys 2009 incident where Brown brutally assaulted his then girlfriend RiRi.
The hour-long show is known to draw inspiration from hot topics and national news, and these two chart-topping celebs–who’d like to forget the ghosts of their troubled romance–don’t seem to get a pass.
The episode is set to air Feb. 27 at 9 p.m. (EST) on NBC.
