In this week's ripped-from-the-headlines episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (8 p.m., NBC/Ch. 5), a promising young singer is beaten up by her hip-hop star boyfriend - and then she refuses to cooperate with the police.
Any resemblance to Rihanna and Chris Brown are strictly coincidental. Not.
