Singer Chris Brown arrested in France on suspicion of rape

The 29-year-old was detained on Monday and was still being quizzed by police last night over potential charges of aggravated rape and drug infractions, a judicial official said.

In May past year, a woman filed a lawsuit against Brown over claims that one of his friends repeatedly raped her at a drunken and drug-fuelled party at the singer´s Los Angeles home in 2017.

Karima says she first reported the rape to police two days later.

A few hours ago, buzz developed about Brown landing in police custody over a rape accusation.

"The woman said she was abused by Brown, a bodyguard, and a friend, and then she was left alone with the star", said another source in Paris.

Chris Brown arrested on rape charges in Paris. The alleged victim claimed that Brown attacked him because he was taking photos after Brown arrived at the venue for an afterparty "showing".

Neither Brown's legal team, nor a rep for Sony, Brown's label, have released a comment regarding the report.

He received five years probation and a community service order for assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, in his vehicle in 2009. BBC News notes that the woman claimed Brown assaulted her in a suite. The singer pleaded guilty to felony assault in the case and completed probation in 2015. Brown has been spotted over the last week in Paris attending events around Paris Fashion Week.

In 2016, he was arrested in Los Angeles after a woman said he had pointed a gun at her.

According to TMZ, France's Closer magazine which broke the news, have published the 24-year-old woman's account of the evening in question.
