Chris Brown files defamation complaint against rape-accuser

Chris Brown has filed a legal complaint against the woman who previously accused him of rape.

The complaint was filed in Paris, France on Thursday 24 January 2019 by Brown’s lawyer Raphaël Chiche.

A woman had previously filed a rape complaint against Brown and two other men. According to her lawyer, she said she was raped four times during a party.

Documents obtained by The Independent show that Brown claims the “slanderous denunciation” (the French equivalent of “false accusation”) occurred on 18 January 2019.

The documents, which are both in French and in English, refer to the 226-10 article of the French penal code, which states that false accusations carry a possible five-year prison sentence and £39,071 ($50,872) fine.

The lawyer for the woman accusing Brown, Franck Serfati, said he wasn’t aware of a complaint being filed against his client as of the afternoon of 24 January, though he acknowledged such a complaint is a legal option.

French Police questioned Brown and the others before releasing them from custody without charges Tuesday 22 January 2019.

The Paris prosecutor’s office says the investigation hasn’t been closed.

Serfati told The Associated Press on Thursday 24 January 2019, the woman alleges she was forced to take cocaine and raped by the three men at a Paris hotel.

Chiche did not immediately respond to a request for comment regarding Serfati’s comments to the Associated Press.
