  • A 24-year-old woman has accused the rapper of raping her in his hotel room between January 15 and 16

United States singer Chris Brown says a rape allegation against him is false, a day after the French prosecutor's office said he had been arrested in Paris with two other suspects. After meeting Brown and a group of friends earlier in the evening at the Le Crystal nightclub, she reportedly went with the group back to the hotel located in central Paris.

The American singer was taken into custody on potential charges of aggravated rape and drug infractions, the Associated Press reported, citing a French judicial official.

Chris Brown is facing legal trouble, yet again, after being accused of raping a woman in Paris.

The woman, identified as Jane Doe, filed a civil suit against the singer last spring.

The police are still investigating the case, the French prosecutor's office added.

The woman claimed Brown held a party in his home on February 23, 2017, in which his friend, Lowell Grissom Jr., also known as Young Lo, and an unnamed woman, "Doe X", forcibly held her down and forced her to perform sexual acts.




Recording artist Chris Brown (L) and his attorney Mark Geragos appear in Los Angeles court in Los Angeles, California, on November 20, 2013.

The woman filed a complaint that Chris raped her in a hotel room in Paris last week. He completed probation in 2015.

Police were notified the following Monday, January 21, and Brown, his bodyguard and another man were arrested. He was arrested in July for an outstanding felony battery charge, which stemmed from an April 2017 incident in Tampa, Florida, where Brown was accused of punching a photographer.

Additionally, in 2013, he was charged with a misdemeanor assault against a man, and subsequently was kicked out of the rehab he was legally forced to attend.

The singer was arrested on Monday and remains in custody while police probe the complaint.

Several attempts to speak with Chris brown publist at Sony Music did not yield results.
