Chris Brown has reportedly been hit with a new lawsuit accusing him of rape.
Court documents obtained by XXL allege Brown drugged and raped an unnamed
woman on Dec. 30, 2020. The assault allegedly happened on a yacht that was parked
at Diddy’s Star Island estate in Florida.
The Jane Doe, who describes herself as a ‘professional choreographer, dancer, model
and musical artist,’ says the ordeal began when a friend of hers was hanging out in
the vicinity of Brown.
The two friends were speaking via video chat when Brown allegedly took her friend’s
phone and requested that she head to Diddy’s Star Island home as quickly as
Once she arrived, she says that Brown greeted her aboard the yacht and asked her if
she would like a drink before motioning her toward the boat’s kitchen area.
The filing claims that he gave her a red plastic cup inside the kitchen that was filled
with a mixed alcoholic drink.
After they chatted, the woman claims that Brown refilled her cup. After she began to
drink again, she says she started to feel ‘a sudden, unexplained change in
She claims that she felt ‘disoriented, physically unstable, and started to fall in and
out of sleep,’ at which point Brown allegedly ushered her into a bedroom.
She says that at the time she felt ‘drugged’ and ‘half-asleep.’
Her filing states that the Beautiful People singer closed the bedroom door and took
off her bikini bottoms before he began kissing her.
The Jane Doe alleges that she mumbled for him to stop, but that he proceeded to rape
her. After he climaxed, he allegedly got up quickly and said he was ‘done.’
The filing claims that Brown contacted the woman the following day via text message
to demand that she take Plan B to prevent a possible pregnancy.
Even though she was in a distraught state, she says that she still took the pill.
Jane Doe’s attorneys Ariel Mitchell and George Vrabeck told TMZ that she didn’t
report the alleged rape to police because she was attending medical school at the
time and she worried that making a complaint would be an embarrassment.
The lawyers stated that they’re ‘committed to victims being heard and would urge
anyone with information to contact them.’
Brown has had several legal entanglements in the past, most famously including his
assault of his then-girlfriend Rihanna.
In the early hours of February 8, 2009, he got into an argument with the Work singer
that ended with him assaulting her badly enough to require her hospitalization.
He was charged with felony assault and making criminal threats the following month,
initially pleading not guilty, before pleading guilty to a single felony count.
He was ordered to serve five years of probation, community service and counseling
for domestic violence.
The two later reunited in early 2013, before breaking up again later that year.
