Law & Order: SVU is known for its “ripped-from-the-headline” plots, but their latest episode is sure to stir up considerably more controversy than usual. Next week’s “Funny Valentine” episode depicts the violent relationship between up-and-coming singer, Micha Charles (played by Tiffany Robinson) and her abusive, hip-hop star boyfriend Caleb Brown (played by Eugene Jones); not too unlike a certain famous couple, no? Despite the attempts of Detective Benson and district attorney Barba, the singer refuses to aid the prosecution and chooses to remain with her boyfriend, leading to a “media circus.”
While Rihanna and Chris Brown recently got back together — four years after his brutal attack on her after a pre-Grammys party in 2009 — the episode unfolds slightly differently. No spoilers, though; you’ll have to wait until Wednesday, Feb. 27 when “Funny Valentine” airs on NBC.
Check out some pics and a promo clip from the episode after the jump…
