Singer, Chris Brown, who was released from French police custody earlier this week, has now filed a defamation suit against a woman who accused of him of raping her at his hotel room.
Brown’s Paris-based attorney, Raphael Chiche, filed the complaint Thursday … titled “false accusation, committed on January 18, 2019.” It appears this is more than a civil defamation case, according to the doc obtained by TMZ, the lawyer is citing a criminal statute relating to invasion of privacy. A violation of that law carries a maximum 1-year prison sentence.
The 29-year-old singer was detained Monday along with his bodyguard and one other person after a 24-year-old woman accused him of raping her in a hotel room last week.
He was later released from police custody on Tuesday and won’t face any charges at this time, but an investigation continues.
