US singer Chris Brown is being questioned by police in Paris after being accused of rape, security sources told AFP on condition of anonymity.
A woman has accused Brown, alongside with his bodyguard and a friend, of raping her in the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Paris overnight Tuesday-Wednesday last week, a source close to the case said.
Le Figaro newspaper reported earlier this week that the troubled star, who has a history of violence, was in the French capital to attend haute couture fashion shows.
Brown has been in repeated legal trouble since pleading guilty to the felony assault in 2009 of his then-girlfriend, singer Rihanna. He completed his probation in that case in 2015.
