Music star Chris Brown detained in Paris over rape claims

Police in Paris have detained singer Chris Brown over rape claims.

The singer is being investigated after a 24-year-old woman filed a rape complaint.

The woman said the incident happened between January 15 and 16 after they met up at a club and went to the singer’s hotel room.

The 29-year-old R&B star and his record label are yet to respond to the reports.

According to French media, the singer was detained on Monday alongside his bodyguard and is yet to be released.

Brown in 2009 pleaded guilty to assaulting his then girlfriend Rihanna and was put on probation until 2015.

Last year, the singer was accused by model Liziane Gutierrez of punching her in the face at a Las Vegas party but he was never charged for the same.
