Chris Brown Posts Response To Rape Allegations
Chris Brown has been released from custody in Paris after being arrested due to an alleged rape complaint. French police now have two days to decided if they will formally charge the US rapper.
It’s reported that the Grammy award-winning singer was detained on Monday, along with his bodyguard and another man, on potential charges of aggravated rape and drug infractions.
Following his release, Brown has posted a message to his Instagram account to seemingly address the allegations.
The post is of an image that reads, “This B!tch lying’" and the caption states, “I WANNA MAKE IT PERFECTLY CLEAR…… THIS IS FALSE AND A WHOLE LOT OF CAP! (sic)
“NNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEERRRRRR!!!!!! FOR MY DAUGHTER AND MY FAMILY THIS IS SO DISPRESPECTFUL AND IS AGAINST MY CHARACTER AND MORALS!!!!!”
According to TMZ, the prosecutors office has said that investigations are continuing and are not closed at this stage.
Brown’s detention, which was originally reported by French gossip magazine Closer, was made after a woman filed a report claiming that she had met him and two other men on January 15 at Le Crystal club near the Champs-Elysées.
They allegedly then travelled to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel near the Concorde Plaza in central Paris, according to a justice official.
His US lawyer, Mark Geragos, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Brown has been in repeated legal trouble since pleading guilty to the felony assault in 2009 of his then-girlfriend, Rihanna.
He completed his probation in that case in 2015, but has continued to have run-ins with police.
This allegation is the latest legal trouble for Brown, who was arrested at the end of a concert last year to face a felony battery charge involving a nightclub photographer.
In 2013, Brown was charged with misdemeanour assault after he was accused of striking a man outside a Washington DC hotel. He was ordered into rehab but was dismissed for violating facility rules. Brown spent 10 weeks in custody.
After he completed court-ordered anger-management classes, Brown was accused of throwing a brick at his mother's car following a counselling session.
After Brown posted a picture to his Instagram followers in January 2018 showing his three-year-old daughter Royalty cuddling with a pet monkey, California fish and wildlife agents seized the capuchin monkey named Fiji from his home in Los Angeles.
Brown was later handed a misdemeanour charge for lacking a permit for the primate. He is scheduled to be arraigned on February 6 in Los Angeles.
