The woman told the police that she met the singer on January 15th at a nightclub near Champs- Elysees and that later that evening, he invited her and several other women to the upscale Mandarin Oriental hotel, where he was staying.
According to Closer magazine, the woman told the police that she then found herself alone in one of the hotel’s rooms, where she said Mr. Brown raped her. She also accused a friend of the singer and the bodyguard of raping her.
Mr. Brown’s record company, RCA, which said this month that it had signed a new deal with Mr. Brown, did not respond to the request for comment. Last week RCA dropped another of its RnB stars, R. Kelly, after protests that followed the airing of the television documentary “Surviving R. Kelly”.
