Chris Brown was detained in Paris after a rape complaint


US singer Chris Brown and two others were arrested in Paris after a woman complained of rape, French officials said on Tuesday.

The Grammy Award-winning singer was arrested on Monday on charges of rape and severe drug abuse and remained detained Tuesday, a court official said. The investigator has two more days to decide whether to let him go or make an initial fee.

Brown Public Relations at Sony Music will not immediately comment on complaints or say what Brown, 29, did in Paris.

Brown has been repeatedly in legal trouble since pleading guilty to a 2009 crime attack from his girlfriend, Rihanna. He completed his probation in that case in 2015, but continued to have disputes with the police.

The woman who filed the complaint said she met Brown and her friends on January 15-16 at Le Crystal club in the 8th arrondissement near the Champs-Elysees, and then they all went to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel near Concorde Plaza in central Paris, according to officials that.

One of Brown's bodyguards was among the others detained during a Paris investigation, according to the official. No authorized official has openly mentioned discussing the investigation.

This detention was originally reported by French gossip magazine Closer.

Brown is best known for hits in the 2000s such as "Run It" and "Kiss Kiss." He maintains a strong core of fans, including nearly 50 million followers on Instagram. He posted a photo of Instagram on Monday from Paris that appeared to show him at a nightclub.

He released a new single earlier this month and has a new album this year. The six albums become platinum.
