Chris Brown was arrested in France with two other men on Monday after a woman who claims to have met the trio at a Paris nightclub filed a rape complaint, the Associated Press reports. The Grammy-winning singer was released on Tuesday afternoon along with two other individuals. The Paris prosecutor’s office told TMZ, “The investigations, which are not closed at this stage, will continue under the authority of the Paris prosecutor’s office.” Brown was released on his own recognizance, without bail and was allowed to return to the United States.
Few details are known about the complaint against Brown and the other men, one of whom is a bodyguard for the singer. The woman’s complaint reportedly says that the group headed to the Mandarin-Oriental Hotel after meeting at the Le Crystal nightclub.
French officials added that charges have not yet been filed against the 29-year-old performer, though he reportedly could face charges of aggravated rape and drug infractions. Investigators have two days to decide whether to pursue the case or release the men.
Brown, who recently sparked rumors of a collaboration with Drake, has a history of legal trouble. In 2009, he pleaded guilty to felony assault after beating then-girlfriend Rihanna, striking a plea deal for domestic violence counseling, community service and five years of probation in lieu of jail time.
Former girlfriend Karrueche Tran obtained a restraining order after she accused Brown of making threats against her. In 2016, he was arrested, and subsequently released, when a woman called police claiming that he was threatening her with a gun at his home.
His rap sheet also includes a 2013 assault charge and a 2018 arrest for felony battery.
Yahoo Entertainment has contacted Brown’s legal representatives for comment.
