A famous music artist and actor, Chris Brown, is the latest to join a long list of celebrities who have been accused of sexual assault. This new allegation surfaced on Wednesday, May 9th, as the “Me Too” movement continues to gain momentum.
Brown is best-known for his multiple hip-hop and R&B hits including “With You,” “Say Goodbye,” and “Loyal.” He also received several acting roles in popular movies such as “This Christmas,” “Think Like a Man,” “Takers,” and “Stomp the Yard.”
According to TMZ, high-profile attorney Gloria Allred will file a lawsuit in Los Angeles, California against the R&B singer in upcoming days.
Currently, little information is known about the lawsuit other than the fact that Allred’s client claims Brown “repeatedly sexually assaulted” her at his home. She was allegedly “imprisoned” in a bedroom at Brown’s house.
The timing of the incidents was not provided. A live news conference is expected to take place soon, which will reveal more details. This story is developing and will be updated once more information is released to the public.
The lawsuit isn't Brown's first run-in with the law. In 2009, Brown turned himself in for domestic violence involving his ex-girlfriend/Grammy award-winning singer Rihanna; ultimately, he received a sentence of probation and counseling. He is also currently under a restraining order by Karrueche Tran, who claims Brown threatened to kill her.
