Chris Brown sued over alleged 'rape charges'
Chris Brown has been accused of allowing a woman to be raped at a party, according to a new lawsuit.
The 29-year-old rapper is facing accusations in a lawsuit filed by attorney Gloria Allred - who is acting on behalf of an unnamed woman listed as “Jane Doe” - which allege the star pushed drugs and alcohol on female guests partying at his house in February last year, before “imprisoning” one woman and allowing her to be forcibly raped.
According to the documents, which were obtained by The Blast, Jane Doe met Lowell Grissom, one of Chris’ friends, whilst at 1 Oak nightclub in Los Angeles, and was invited back to Chris’ home with a friend, where she alleges her phone was taken from her and “cocaine, ‘Molly,’ and marijuana” was pushed on her.
The woman then alleges that the party progressed until all the guests were in one of the bedrooms, where Chris instructed Lowell to “push a couch in front of the bedroom door” to prevent anyone from leaving.
She claims the ‘Loyal’ hitmaker then began playing pornography on his television before removing his clothes and engaging in sexual activities with the women in the room.
Jane Doe stated in the documents that she and her friend did not want to partake in the activities, but were denied when they asked to leave.
The documents then allege that another woman in the party grabbed Jane Doe by the throat and forced her to perform oral sex, whilst at the same time being molested and eventually raped by Lowell.
According to Jane Doe, she visited a rape treatment centre as soon as she was able to get free from the party, and reported the incident to the police immediately.
Her attorney, Gloria Allred, claims there is an active police investigation, however, according to The Blast, no charges have been filed.
In a press conference, Gloria said: “[My client] filed this lawsuit because she wants justice for herself, but she also wants to warn other young women about the potential danger to themselves if they have their phone taken away and if they go to Chris Brown’s house.
The civil lawsuit alleges sexual battery, gender violence, battery, assault, hate violence, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence.
