Hours after American RnB star Chris Brown was released by French police, reports have emerged that he plans to sue a woman who had accused him for raping her in his hotel room.
The Boom Times report that Brown was released from prison on Tuesday without charge after being held for questioning overnight in Paris following the rape accusations.
According to French lawyer Raphael Chiche, Brown vigorously denied the allegations and he is preparing to file the defamation lawsuit on behalf of his client.
‘Chris Brown is free. No lawsuits were filed against him. He vigorously challenges the charges against him,’ Chiche said.
‘A complaint for slanderous denunciation will be filed tomorrow with the public prosecutor of Paris.’
The 24-year-old French model told the police that she was raped by Brown and two other men during a drug-fueled party at his hotel a week ago.
The ordeal allegedly happened inside Brown’s hotel room at the Mandarin Oriental where suites can cost more than US$21,000 (£19,000) per night.
The woman alleges she was attacked by Brown, his bodyguard and a family friend on January 16.
Brown and the two other men were all released from police custody on Tuesday.
