R&B singer Chris Brown is arrested in Paris on suspicion of rape

From there, the judge will determine if the singer will remain in custody until trial or be released with "obligations", meaning he would be free but would have to remain in Paris until the actual trial.

Sony has not commented on Brown's behalf.

Citing two anonymous police officials, the Associated Press (via NBC News) reported the star was detained on Monday.

The woman claims she was raped by Brown on January 15.

According to TMZ, France's Closer magazine which broke the news, have published the 24-year-old woman's account of the evening in question.

The woman is said to have followed the singer to his hotel room where the incident allegedly occurred.

Chris Brown has been arrested alongside two other men after a woman filed a rape claim whilst he was attending Paris Fashion Week earlier this month.

Brown's legal troubles have mounted over the last 10 years, stemming from a 2009 altercation where he was arrested and plead guilty to felony assault for striking his then girlfriend, Rihanna.

Chris Brown and two other people have been arrested on suspicion of rape.

Brown had many run-ins with the law since then.

She said she met Brown and his friends at the club Le Crystal in the 17th arrondissement of northwestern Paris. He completed probation in 2015.

In 2013, Brown was charged with misdemeanor assault after he was accused of striking a man outside a Washington hotel.

She sued the trio for sexual battery, battery, assault and intentional infliction of emotional distress among other charges. Brown spent 2½ months in custody, with US marshals shuttling him between Los Angeles and the nation's capital for court hearings.

The prosecutor's office said an investigation was continuing, while Brown's lawyer Raphael Chiche said his client "energetically" proclaimed his innocence and wanted to bring a defamation lawsuit.
