Chris Brown Is Being Sued By A Woman Alleging She Was Raped In His Home

 

A woman who alleges she was raped in his home by his friend, rapper Lowell Grissom Jr., is suing Chris Brown, Rolling Stone reports.

The plaintiff, referred to as Jane Doe, is being represented by high-profile attorney Gloria Allred, who said in a statement to RS“The lawsuit alleges that while she was at Brown’s house, plaintiff became the victim of horrific sexual assaults which are described in our lawsuit. That is why we have filed this case today alleging sexual battery, gender violence, a violation of Ralph Civil Rights Act, battery, assault, interference with the exercise of civil rights, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence.”

Doe had reportedly been hanging out at an afterparty at a recording studio with Brown and Grissom and another woman, Jane Doe X, where she had her phone confiscated. When the group relocated to Brown’s home, Brown gave both women a clear pill, and said to take the pill to have a “good time,” according to the lawsuit.

Doe did not take the pill, but, as the suit reports, was forced by Jane Doe X to perform oral sex on Grissom and then on X; Brown and Grissom refused to return her phone to her. After that, she was allegedly raped multiple times by Grissom before being able to obtain her phone and flee the scene, where she then “went to a rape treatment center and to the police where she reported the aforementioned events.”

Allred has called the case in a statement to press “one of the most horrific sexual assault cases [she has] ever seen.”
