Chris Brown Sued Over Alleged Sexual Assault
American R&B singer Chris Brown has been sued for alleged rape in his California home by a woman identified as Jane Doe.
The incident allegedly occurred between the night of Feb. 23 and the early morning of Feb. 24, 2017, when Doe attended a party hosted by the singer.
The lawsuit was filed on Wednesday morning in the Los Angeles County Superior Court.
Doe claims she was sexually assaulted and held against her will after she and her friends were lured to an upstairs bedroom by Brown, and two other men identified as Grissom and Doe X.
She disclosed that Doe X forced her to perform oral sex on Grissom and then molested her as well.
The accusers lawyer, Gloria Allred, described the incident as “one of the most horrific sexual assault cases that I have ever seen” adding that her client “was forced to go to Brown’s home” from the party where the singer provided guests with alcohol and illegal drugs that included cocaine, marijuana, and molly.
“This is one of the most horrific cases involving alleged sexual assaults that I have ever seen, and our client has been severely traumatized by what she was forced to endure,” Allred told the court.
“She filed this lawsuit because she wants justice for herself, but she also wants to warn other young women about the potential danger to them if they have their phone taken away and if they go to Chris Brown’s house.
“She does not want any other young woman to endure the violent sexual assaults that she was forced to endure in an environment of guns and drugs. We look forward to our client having the opportunity to have her day in court. We want to hold accountable those who were responsible for the gender violence inflicted upon her.”
However brown is not named as the rapist but is said to have been involved in a way.
Chris Brown who is yet to respond to the lawsuit has been involved in a similar incident of violence in 2009, when he was arrested for assaulting Rihanna, believed to be his then-girlfriend, who was hospitalized with visible facial injuries.
