Chris Brown Denies Rape Allegations
Chris Brown has denied the claims that he raped a woman while in France last week. Following his release from police custody on Tuesday (Jan. 22), the singer went on his Instagram page to deny the claims of that he allegedly raped the woman in Paris.
Brown posted an image with the words “This Bitch Is Lyin!” written on a photo. In the caption, the singer writes in all caps, “I WANNA MAKE IT PERFECTLY CLEAR…… THIS IS FALSE AND A WHOLE LOT OF CAP! NNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEERRRRRR!!!!!! FOR MY DAUGHTER AND MY FAMILY THIS IS SO DISPRESPECTFUL [sic] AND IS AGAINST MY CHARACTER AND MORALS!!!!!”
As we previously reported, Brown, along with two other people, were detained by French police on possible charges of aggravated rape on Monday (Jan. 21). The investigation is still ongoing.
Meanwhile, the 24-year-old victim reportedly gave a detailed account about the incident to U.K. publication Closer magazine. The accuser, under the pseudonym Karima, told the outlet that she met Brown at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Paris on Jan. 15 at 10:30 p.m. and then went to a nightclub with him. After leaving the club at 4 a.m., they returned to Brown's hotel room.
Once she was in Brown’s hotel suite, Karima alleges that the singer followed her into the bathroom, grabbed her by the right arm and pulled her into a dressing room where Brown allegedly raped her for “25 to 30 minutes.” The victim describes the alleged rape as “brutal and violent.” She also claims that Brown's bodyguard and one of the singer’s friends “abused” her as well.
A source close to Brown reportedly told TMZ that the singer was never alone with the alleged victim and that Brown's girlfriend, Ammika Harris, was also in the hotel room at the time. In addition, there were 20 people in the room “hanging out” and listening to Brown’s music via his iPhone.
