Singer Chris Brown has been detained in Paris on charges of “aggravated rape” and multiple narcotics offenses. According to reports, a 24-year-old woman accused Brown of raping her in his suite at Paris’ Mandarin Oriental hotel on January 15th/16th. The woman, who has not been named, told the police in Paris that she met Brown while at a nightclub and that the singer then invited her and a few other women back to his suite. She alleges that at some point in the evening she found herself alone with Brown, and that is when he allegedly raped her. The woman said that Brown’s bodyguard and one of his friends also abused her.
Brown was sued in May of 2018 after a woman alleged that she was repeatedly raped, sexually assaulted and falsely imprisoned by rapper Young Lo at Brown’s home in 2017. He also famously pleaded guilty in 2009 to felony assault for attacking then-girlfriend Rihanna. He was ordered to community service and domestic violence counseling and she was granted a restraining order.
