US R&B singer, Chris Brown was released by officials in Paris following a rape inquiry concerning a 24-year old who said she was allegedly assaulted by the multi award winning artist.
A few hours after the arrest, the star was released and quickly denied allegations of taking part in anything related to rape and that his team will soon after file for defamation.
I want to make it perfectly clear, this is false,” he wrote on Instagram, alongside a picture that said: “This bitch lyin’.”
The two men arrested with Brown, identified as a bodyguard and a friend, have also reportedly been released.
This isn’t the first time Chris Brown has found himself mixed up in the law –
He received five years probation and a community service order for assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, in his car in 2009.
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.
Later he was freed and his lawyer said the accusations against Brown were “demonstrably false”.
