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

Authorities arrived at the hotel on Monday and arrested Brown, who shared videos of himself in Paris for Fashion Week a day after the alleged rape took place.

United States superstar Chris Brown was arrested in Paris on Monday morning with two other people on suspicion of rape, a French police source said on Tuesday.

Brown was arrested and jailed after a woman claimed she was raped by the singer after they met at Le Crystal, a nightclub close to the Champs-Élysées.

A lawyer for Brown did not immediately respond to Rolling Stone's request for comment.

In August 2009, Brown was sentenced to five years probation, one year of domestic violence counselling, and six months of community service for physically assaulting ex Rihanna after the 2009 Grammy Awards.

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

Chris Brown has angrily hit back at claims that he raped a 24-year-old model during a party after being released without charge.

Now, Brown's attorney Raphael Chiche reportedly tells TMZ the singer plans to pursue legal action against his accuser.

Police are still investigating the case, the Paris prosecutor's office said. After that, she said, Brown's bodyguard also raped her.

The AFP reports Brown was released without charge on Tuesday, though the investigation into the incident continues.

Chris Brown is seen on January 17, 2019 in Paris, France.

In 2013, Brown was charged with misdemeanour assault after he was accused of striking a man outside a Washington DC hotel. Brown has remained in custody since being detained Monday in Paris.

Brown waived his appearance at a Thursday court hearing in Hillsborough County, and, at the time, it didn't appear the state was willing to offer a deal.
