RAPPER Chris Brown has been released by from custody by police by Paris where he was detained after woman claimed he raped her in a hotel suite.
The 29-year-old and two other men detained on potential charges of aggravated rape and drug infractions and prosecutors say the investigation is ongoing.
The 24-year-old woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, says she was attacked by Brown, his bodyguard and a family friend
The incident is alleged to have happened at the Mandarin Oriental in the centre of the French capital, where suites can cost more than £19,000-a-night.
The rapper has denied the allegations posting ‘THIS B!TCH IS LYIN’ on his Instagram.
On Tuesday night, all, including 29-year-old Brown, remained in custody at a Paris police station facing the threat of criminal charges that could see them imprisoned.
The victim alleges a drug fuelled party in Brown’s hotel suite turned ‘violent and brutal’
In an interview with French Closer magazine, the woman said she met Brown “through a friend” who works at the Crystal Lounge nightclub on the Champs Elysee.
The woman finally met the rapper on January 15th at the Mandarin Oriental hotel.
She said went to a nightclub called ‘The Quay’ with the rappers entourage.
After the club the group went back to Brown’s rooms at the Mandarin Oriental.
The woman told Closer: “Once in the suite, we were offered drinks. There was cocaine and cannabis.
“There were about fifteen girls, friends of Chris Brown. The music was loud, people were coming in and out … It was a bit chaotic.
“At one point, I went to the bathroom. Chris Brown followed me and took me by the right arm. He made me enter a sort of dressing room. He closed the door.’
Saying the rape followed, the woman explained: “It lasted 25 to 30 minutes. It’s still too difficult for me to explain in detail what he did, but it was brutal and violent.
“He was threatening and aggressive. I was very afraid. Once it was over, he opened the door. I told him that I wanted to pick up my cell phone and go home.”
Prosecutors in the French capital confirmed Brown faced possible criminal charges after the alleged sex attack a week ago
A source said: “He is accused of a rape and is being held at the judicial police offices in the 1st arrondissement.
