Earlier in the day, Brown professed his innocence in an Instagram post.
The alleged 24-year-old victim has reportedly addressed the attack.
Closer, which broke the story Brown was being investigated for rape, calls the woman by a pseudonym — Karima — a 24-year-old model who told the mag she met Brown at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Paris on January 15 at around 10:30 PM and then went to a nightclub. Karima told Closer at 4 AM Brown and his crew wanted to return to the hotel, and she said she was tired but they convinced her to go back to the Mandarin with a group of people. She says once inside his suite, she went to the bathroom, Brown followed her and “catches me by the right arm. He makes me enter a sort of dressing room. He closed the door … it lasted 25-30 minutes.” (TMZ)
Over the past few hours, various hip-hop artists have defended Brown.
