Paris, France – Chris Brown’s alleged rape victim did an interview with the French publication Closer and claimed the January 15 incident was “brutal” and “violent.” The woman said she first met the famous R&B singer at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Paris.
After going to the Le Crystal nightclub together, the 24-year-old model — whose name was changed to Karima in the story to protect her identity — said they returned to the hotel around 4 a.m. local time. Once inside his suite, she said Brown followed her into the bathroom.
“Chris Brown followed me and grabbed me by the right arm,” she said (in French). “He took me inside a tiny room resembling a closet. He closed the door. It went on for 25 to 30 minutes. It was brutal and violent. He was being threatening and aggressive. I was scared.”
Karima also claimed she was raped by one of Brown’s bodyguards and one of his friends. She ended up waiting two days to report the incident out of fear but ultimately decided to alert the authorities so Brown wouldn’t “be able to do the same things to other girls.”
TMZ sources say someone connected to Brown said he was never alone with the alleged victim and insists his girlfriend, Ammika Harris, was in the hotel room the entire time along with more than 20 other people. They were reportedly in the room “hanging out” and listening to music on Brown’s iPhone.
Brown and the two other men were detained on Monday (January 21) and officially arrested on Tuesday (January 22). They have since been released and are allowed to leave the country.
The longtime singer denied all allegations on Instagram with a simple “This Bitch Lyin’” post.
