Chris Brown has been accused of showing "disrespect for the French legal system" after failing to meet with a woman who accused him of rape.
The 'Run It' hitmaker was arrested in January but released without charge pending further investigation after the unnamed female claimed he and two other men had sexually assaulted her at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Paris, and he has now been slammed by his accuser's lawyer after he missed a formal meeting with the alleged victim on Tuesday.
American lawyer Gloria Allred, who had travelled to Paris's police headquarters to assist her client at the meeting - which is called a confrontation in France - said: "[Brown has] thumbed his nose at and shown disrespect for the French legal system.
"His failure to appear today is very unfair to my client, but I assure him that my client will not be deterred from seeking justice."
The alleged victim's French lawyer, Jean-Marc Descoubes, stressed the 'Yeah 3x' singer wasn't legally obliged to attend the meeting, and the other two suspects were also not there, so it is expected there will be another date set in the future.
