Chris Brown plans to sue his alleged rape victim for defamation

24th Critics' Choice Awards - Arrivals

Chris Brown posted the above Instagram yesterday, after he was released from police custody in Paris. Police had held Brown on suspicion of rape and assault, but no charges were filed. He and two members of his entourage were held and questioned for about 24 hours in the investigation, and they were released from custody around 10 pm last night. The investigation is apparently ongoing. But as you can see, Brown’s defense is ramping up. “This Bitch Lyin” he says about his rape accuser. He also says the rape claim is “so disrespectful” because it is “against my character and morals.” Yeah. He thinks he has some kind of moral high road.

As for the alleged victim, she told the press that she met Chris Brown and his friends on January 15 at the nightclub Le Crystal. The group went to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel (it was then early-morning on January 16). She told Closer Magazine that Brown grabbed her arm and “made her” enter a walk in closet, where he sexually assaulted her in a “brutal and violent” way for 25 to 30 minutes. Afterwards, she asked for her cellphone back and they refused. She says after that, one of Brown’s friends sexually abused her, and then one of his bodyguards raped her. She was finally able to leave, and she called the police two days later.

Brown and his people deny all of this, and Brown has a girlfriend (which I didn’t know) who is currently saying that everything was completely innocent and they were just listening to music. Brown’s new lawyer, Raphael Chiche, told media outlets that: “Chris Brown is free. No lawsuits were filed against him. He vigorously challenges the charges against him. A complaint for slanderous denunciation will be filed tomorrow with the public prosecutor of Paris.” Yeah, that’s a thing, as we’ve seen – rapists suing their victims for going to the police or telling their stories in any way. It doesn’t make them look innocent, so I don’t know why they do it. Oh right, they do it because they hate women and they want to silence women from telling their stories.

    Wow…this sounds VERY SIMILAR to what women has said about him in the past…and I would be SURPRISED if he sued…number one…he ain’t GOT IT LIKE THAT no more…

  2. Elkie says:

    If I was trying to profess my deeply-held respect and regard for women, I probably wouldn’t have gone with “This B!tch Lyin'” as my official response.

    • Laur says:

      Omg so true!

      This is truly awful, I believe her over him any and every day. That must’ve been absolutely horrific for her and I hope SHE goes after HIM for defamation for calling her a lying bitch! I hope she gets the support she needs from the justice system and elsewhere.

    • tback says:

      This post tells us everything we need to know about his “character and morals”

      • WingKingdom says:

        We’ve witnessed evidence of his character for many years. When I read that is was “against his character” I snorted

      • Steff says:

        That reminds me of the Rihanna beating. Everyone was saying how out of character and what a nice guy he was. Oprah was freakin saying it!

        Also, I found it disgusting how many people were caping for him on Twitter like wtf are you doing?!

        If a powerful and beloved black woman like Rihanna gets mistreated and folks still choose the side of the abuser, what hope is there for other black women or just any woman that doesn’t have her stature?

      • Kurtz says:

        Well there is a picture of him right next to that meme so I guess the conclusion drawn is that that bitch has been lyin about his abuse for years.

  3. BaronSamedi says:

    He is such a disgusting piece of shit. But as much as he enrages me I am honestly more pissed off at the way patriarchic society has allowed him to prosper. We had the pictures, he didn’t deny what he did to Rihanna and STILL this uneducated man-child has a career and brazenly hangs out at Paris fashion week.

    I honestly don’t know how to feel about this. There simply is no justice.

    • Erinn says:

      On top of that, can he even manage to get a defamation suit through the court? I don’t think anything this woman has said has ACTUALLY caused any damage to his brand. He is LITERALLY most well known for almost beating a woman to death – how could a claim of assault tank him any more?

      Beyond the near murder of Rihanna he’s time and time again gotten physical with people, trashed rooms, thrown things, and as of 2017 Karrueche had gotten a temporary restraining order against him that was updated to a 5 year order because he threatened to kill her. He was arrested in 2018 on felony battery charges. He can’t enter Australia, New Zealand, or the United Kingdom

      HOW in any way shape or form has this woman done any actual damage to his career. There’s no way this shouldn’t be thrown out.

  4. Sparkly says:

    Wow, what an absolutely horrible person. And all those people massaging his ego in the comments ought to be ashamed of themselves.

  5. RBC says:

    Sue for defamation? Chris Brown assaulted Rihanna, hurled a chair through a window while doing a interview, assaulted other women, has had guns and drugs found at his home seized by police during a standoff with police and he is suing for defamation ? Instead of suing this woman he might want to sue himself. He has done a great job of defaming himself

  6. Rapunzel says:

    Allow me translate: “This b*tch lying” is predator-speak for “I did it and am pissed I got caught.”.

  7. OriginalLala says:

    ugh, I hope at the very least that his disgusting post gets reported and taken down, but who am I kidding, Insta, Twitter, FB..all cesspools of misogyny and hate.

    As for Brown, how anyone can still be supporting this predator is beyond me

  8. Mia4s says:

    Ugh. Karma if you’re out there, Please come for this piece of garbage.

  9. AnnaKist says:

    Having learned a new term on Celebitchy this week, I’d be happy to dog walk this twat. 🤣

  10. eto says:

    I can see that he is R. Kelly 2.0 (albeit missing a few crimes) in the black community and people will literally never turn on him until there’s a documentary about what he’s done. And even then, only turn on him for 2 weeks. Ugh I need a break from this 🙁

    • Onemoretime says:

      Definitely not true about the black community. Some in the black community will never turn their backs not the majority. His younger fans will stay with him! My daughters were big Chris Brown fans before his Rihanna assault, after that they gave up on him and Chris was everything to her. Now their opnions are he is walking, talking trash. I think the majority of our community cut him off. Tom Joyner and most radio stations stopped playing his music but of course it didn’t last. It was more action than they took against R Kelly.

      • eto says:

        Yeah maybe I’m putting too much stock in Shaderoom instagram comments but it feels like a majority of folks are on his side. He has definitely lost momentum and starpower over the years and that gives me a little hope, but from what I’ve seen in my community in Chicago and online, he’s still going strong with a lot of black folks.

  11. lana86 says:

    Oh God I hope there is still some way to prove this after 2 days.

    • TheBees says:

      That’s the same thing I was thinking. He is already a non factor in my book but I’m hoping that this young lady is on the up and up. I have heard that there are females that do this type of thing to famous people, kind of like the kids who party with the rich then rob them. He doesn’t need anyone feeling like he is a victim and dismissing all the other horrible thing that he has done!

  12. Jovani! says:

    It looks like he took down the Bitch Lyin’ post but the comments on the other recent posts about his arrest are so disheartening: every. single. commenter is supporting him. “God is good”, “Keep your head up”, “This bitch should go to jail for lying”, etc. He has 50 million goddamn instagram followers. I just…I don’t understand. Not to mention the MF-er can’t sing without drowning his whiny voice with autotune.

  13. Loretta says:

    This man is disgusting. I can’t stand him since the episode with Rihanna.

  14. Dttimes2 says:

    I believe her. And dude needs to stop wearing Boston Bruins gear : we fans dont want this predator associated with the team

  15. Chaine says:

    Ugh I can’t believe how he’s like “by exercising your legal right to report an alleged violent crime against you by me you have disrespected my daughter”. What does this mans poor child have to do with any of this?

  16. Ai says:

    I have been wishing that he would be locked-up for many years now so that he doesn’t hurt another woman and it’s really frustrating to see he did it again. I hope the victim will be OK.

    Judicial harassment in itself should be a criminal offense because it’s a very specific strategy usually used by the rich and powerful to silence anyone speaking up on the truth – especially if it’s repeated. I work in the human rights field and this same tactic is used by high ranking officers and business men with $$ to silence anyone speaking up. They sue for defamation and use the legal mess to intimidate the advocates, human right defenders, NGOs that may not have $ to access lawyers etc. Unfortunately, this strategy has been effective and it says a lot about how society at large.

      “Judicial harassment in itself should be a criminal offense because it’s a very specific strategy usually used by the rich and powerful to silence anyone speaking up on the truth”

      Really great point!

  17. Jamie says:

    He’s not going to file a damn thing, because it’s going to give prosecutors the ability to bring out all those other women he’s abused to testify about his “morals” and “character.”

  18. me says:

    this man needs to be locked up

  19. Tw says:

    He is so repulsive.

  20. me says:

    I dated a man who physically abused me. His ex girlfriend before me started telling people about how he abused her and put her in the hospital. You know what this guy said to me?

    He was going to sue his ex girlfriend for defamation. He called a lawyer and the lawyer told him it was a bad idea.

    Also, he was guilty of everything she said and more.

  21. Helen says:

    posters were saying how the french only convict 1% of people charged for rape… the lousy french police didn’t even care enough to keep him in the country

  22. bears says:

    Even if the French authorities don’t believe the woman, or don’t have enough evidence to pursue it yet – hopefully some other women that he’s assaulted will feel brave enough to share their stories because this woman shared hers. Men like him follow a pattern so there are probably other victims out there.

  23. Holly Golightly says:

    Comparing this situation to R Kelly or calling him R Kelly 2.0 is wrong.

    Also, regarding the black community turning on people, have you ever stopped to ask why most black people will wait to jump to stoning men after accusations? From my experience of growing up in the south and from hearing stories about the old days, black men have been falsely accused for centuries. It’s pretty much engrained to protect black men because they’re always perceived by others, mostly white women, as predators. I’ve had ancestors beaten for just looking at a white woman back in the day and a friend of my great grandfather killed because a white woman falsely accused him of rape. It goes much deeper than some of you are willing to understand.

    • Tuntmore says:

      This has nothing to do with race and everything to do with violent misogyny.

      Chris Brown is an angry, hateful, abusive, violent, entitled, misogynistic narcissist. It’s not exactly much of a stretch to believe he’s also a rapist. I would, in fact, be shocked if he *didn’t* sexually assault someone, because that type of man typically does — especially when they’re rich and famous and 99% sure they’ll never be held accountable.

      Sexual assault, domestic violence, incest, child abuse…these nasty things are found pretty much equally across all races and socioeconomic statuses. It’s about human nature and patterns of behavior that transcend race, religion, and tax bracket.

      The bottom line is that we as a society need to start looking at and talking about abusers as abusers *first*, and everything else (race, gender, religion, career, accomplishments, whatever) secondary. That’s the only way to hold abusers accountable and to effect change.

  24. janet says:

    I know he isn’t perfect and has had a problematic past, but how is one falsely accusing him of rape ok in anyone’s books? Especially after we know of stories of black emn being lynched and jailed only for someone to later come say it was a lie. And the woman in this case came out and said she was not assulted by him or anyone from his crew? I don’t get it honestly.
