Ladies and gentlemen, set your faces to stunned. Rapper Chris Brown was arrested in France after allegedly raping a woman.
American R&B singer Chris Brown has been arrested in Paris on suspicion of rape.
A 25-year-old woman has accused Brown of raping her on the evening of January 15 at a five-star hotel in the French capital.
Brown and two other people – one of whom is believed to be his bodyguard – are in custody in Paris today as police investigate allegations of sexual assault and ‘drug infractions’. He is alleged to have met the woman at a nightclub near the Champs-Elysees and taken her back to the Mandarin Oriental hotel, where he is accused of having attacked her.
A source close to the case claimed today that ‘a number of the suspects were carrying cocaine, which police found at the hotel after responding to a complaint.’ Brown has been arrested awaiting potential charges of ‘aggravated rape and drug infractions’, officials said.
Okay, I’m calling bullshit on this one. No one, and I mean no one, believes rappers use cocaine. This story is absolutely, positively fake news.
