Chris Brown in custody with two others after a woman filed a rape complaint.
US singer Chris Brown and two others are in custody in Paris after a woman filed a rape complaint according to French officials on Tuesday.
The award-winning singer was detained Monday on a potential charge of aggravated rape and drug abuse. Investigators have two days to decide whether to let him go or file preliminary charges.
Brown’s publicists at Sony Music have denied commenting on the issue. His U.S. attorney, Mark Geragos, also did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Brown was also subjected to felony assault in 2009 of his then-girlfriend, Rihanna. He completed his probation for the case in 2015 but has continued to have run-ins with police.
