The episode revolves around a young, rising pop star who has been beaten by her hip-hop star boyfriend. NBC has billed the episode, which is called "Funny Valentine," as a familiar story of two celebrities.
The trailer shows two 20-something African-Americans cast as the couple, whose story creates a media circus as the authorities attempt to investigate. But the SVU episode won't exactly follow what happened between Rihanna and Chris Brown in 2009.
The hip-hop star abuser is found dead on the show, complicating matters even further. The episode is set to air on Wednesday at 9 p.m. Eastern on NBC, and will include special appearances from Perez Hilton, Dave Navarro and Wendy Williams.
