Chris Brown To Sue Rape Accuser For Defamation of Character
The popular R&B singer, Chris Brown, 29, said he would take legal action against his alleged rape victim over defamation of character.
Brown and two others were recently arrested and detained by the Police in France for allegedly raping a 24-year-old woman in his hotel room in Paris on the night of January 15.
The trio was arrested on Monday and kept in custody while police probe the complaint, but later released on Tuesday with an investigation still ongoing.
The singer issued a statement on his Instagram account on Tuesday denying the accusation.
“I wanna make it perfectly clear. This is false and a whole lot of CAP!,” he wrote in the all-caps message. “For my daughter and my family, this is so disrespectful and is against my character and morals!!!!” he wrote
Brown’s Parisian lawyer, Raphael Chiche, says, “Chris Brown is free. No lawsuits were filed against him. He vigorously challenges the charges against him. A complaint about slanderous denunciation will be filed tomorrow with the public prosecutor of Paris.’’
The singer claimed not to have been alone with the woman, insisting that he was playing music off his iPhone in the living room of the suite with 20 people around him the entire time the crime was alleged to have occurred.
According to NAN news, a source in the judicial system of Paris disclosed that the fact that the R&B singer and actor was released with no conditions and free to leave the country is a sign, authorities have no problems with the case.
