The Americans R&B singer has been released from custody in Paris with no charges filed after being detained on rape accusations, a rep for the singer.
Brown and two other people, who were not identified but reports said were Brown’s bodyguard and a friend, were released at around 10 p.m. local time, according to an Associated Press report. Brown and the two people were detained on rape and drug charges; the Paris prosecutor’s office said the investigation is ongoing.
Officially reacting to the allegations, Chris Brown took to Instagram to post an image that reads “THIS B!TCH LYIN’” and in the caption, Brown denies the accusations.
“I wanna make it perfectly clear, this is false and a lot of cap. For my daughter and family, this is so disrespectful and is against my character and morals’.
In 2009, Brown pleaded guilty to the felony assault of Rihanna. Since completing his probation in that case in 2015, he has faced legal troubles including a felony battery charge and assault with a deadly weapon, as well as being sued by a woman who says she was raped at his house.
