US singer, Chris Brown has been arrested in Paris on suspicion of rape according to the French police. A 24-year-old woman says that the singer assaulted her in a hotel suite in the city earlier this month.
She reportedly told police that the pair met at a nightclub in central Paris, close to the Champs-Elysées, before they returned to the hotel. Chris Brown is yet to comment on the allegation. French police are investigating the woman’s complaint.
Two other men, identified by French media as Brown’s bodyguard and a friend, have also been arrested. This isn’t Brown’s first encounter with the law – he has a number of previous, high-profile convictions for violence.
The singer received five years probation and a community service order for assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna in his car in 2009.
