US singer Chris Brown has been arrested in Paris following a rape accusation, police said today.
French officials said Brown and two others are in custody after a woman filed a rape allegation in northwest Paris.
Police said one of the others held is Brown’s bodyguard.
The singer was arrested on Monday and remains in custody while police probe the complaint.
The arrests were first reported by French tabloid Closer, which said the three were arrested after a 24-year-old woman alleged she was raped at Brown’s hotel suite on the night of January 15.
She followed the singer to his hotel where the incident allegedly occurred.
Brown’s publicists at Sony Music would not immediately comment.
