Chris Brown Arrested in Paris: Full Timeline of Singer's Legal Trouble Following Rape Accusations

Chris Brown is facing legal trouble, yet again, after being accused of raping a woman in Paris. French authorities detained the R&B singer on possible charges of aggravated rape and drug infractions, the Associated Press reported on Tuesday.

Brown's bodyguard and one of the singer's friends were also arrested in conjunction with the complaint, French newspaper Le Parisien reported.

According to the complaint, the woman met Brown and company at a Paris nightclub and went to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel with them on January 15. She alleged Brown forced himself on her and claimed his friend and bodyguard abused her after she was allegedly raped.

Authorities arrived at the hotel on Monday and arrested Brown, who shared videos of himself in Paris for Fashion Week a day after the alleged rape took place. Brown, 29, is still being detained in Paris.

Brown's arrest comes one month after the singer was hit with criminal charges for owning a capuchin monkey without the proper permit in Los Angeles. For a full rundown on Brown's legal history, read below.
