Chris Brown has been sued by a woman who alleged that she was raped at his California home in February 2017.
According to TMZ, the lawsuit was filed on behalf of the woman by high-profile women’s rights attorney Gloria Allred, who discussed details of the the suit today yesterday May 9 at a press conference outside of the Los Angeles Superior Court.
Allred said the suit alleges “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.”
The alleged victim, identified as Jane Doe, said she attended an afterparty at a recording studio with Brown and Lowell Grissom Jr. (aka Young Lo). Her phone got confiscated alongside other women’s, before they proceeded to Brown’s house.
“Brown handed each female guest, including [Jane Doe], a clear pill filled with white powder and instructed them to take it to have a ‘good time’,” said the lawsuit, adding, “[Jane Doe] reasonably interpreted Brown’s instruction to have a ‘good time’ at his house to mean that he expected his female guests to later perform sexual acts with him and others while under the influence of these substances. [Jane Doe], who wanted to remain alert and who did not want to perform sexual acts with anyone, did not follow these instructions and declined to consume the pill(s).”
Doe said she was “scared and intimidated” when she saw that Brown and Grissom were in possession of multiple guns. When she refused to take the drug, she said another woman referred to as Jane Doe X “violently grabbed [her] by the throat and forced [her] to perform oral sex on Grissom.”
Doe X then allegedly forced Doe to give her oral sex.
“To compound Plaintiff’s horror, Doe X was menstruating at the time,” the complaint reads. Grissom then allegedly molested Doe with his mouth and hands.
Doe decided to take a shower for health reasons, at which point Grissom allegedly entered the bathroom and molested her again. “Plaintiff fled the bathroom, but Grissom pursued her, and pushed her down onto the bed and raped her,” the complaint states.
Later Grissom gave Doe her phone, and while she waited for a rideshare driver to pick her up, Grissom allegedly raped her again, and when it was over, he opened the gate and let her leave. Doe “went to a rape treatment center and to the police where she reported the aforementioned events.”
Allred told the press at the conference that it is “one of the most horrific sexual assault cases [she has] ever seen.”
Chris Brown had yet to react to this as at press time.
