As per reports, Chris Brown, who is now in Paris got detained by the police there, after a woman accused him of rape and drug offences.

CNN reports that Chris Brown was arrested in Paris, France, and stands accused of "aggravated rape and drug violations".

Brown addressed the allegations earlier today on Instagram, referring to the accuser as a "lyin ass b*tch".

Following his release, Chris wrote on Instagram, "I want to make it perfectly clear, this is false". Afterwards, the model alleges she was then "abused" by one of Brown's friends and a bodyguard, as well.

The woman said she met Brown and the two men on January 15 at Le Crystal club, near the Champs-Elysees.

Chris Brown is taking legal action to defend his name.

Besides Brown, two other people have reportedly been detained in connection to the allegations, including Brown's bodyguard. Brown and two other men were detained on Monday and are still in custody as police investigate the claims. "No lawsuits were filed against him", says Brown's Parisian lawyer, Raphael Chiche.

In 2016, he was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after a woman told police he had threatened her with a gun and in 2009 he received five years probation and a community service order for assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, in his vehicle.

Brown's arrest comes one month after the singer was hit with criminal charges for owning a capuchin monkey without the proper permit in Los Angeles.

However, Chris says they were never alone and that he was playing music off his iPhone in the living room of the suite with 20 people around him the entire time. He completed his probation in that case in 2015, but has continued to have run-ins with police.

The French celebrity magazine Closer first reported the story, elements of which were later confirmed by Reuters, AFP and AP.
