An unidentified woman is alleging that R&B star Chris Brown drugged and raped her on a boat two years ago. A Los Angeles-based musician and choreographer is suing a convicted abuser for sexual battery and rape, false imprisonment, emotional distress, and violation of the gender violence statute, according to NBC News. She is seeking $20 million in compensation.
According to the woman, Brown invited her to Diddy's house in Florida in December 2020. After boarding a yacht, Brown reported that she had been drugged and then passed out. She said she felt an "unexplained change in consciousnesses," including drowsiness, bodily imbalance, and disorientation. Brown is accused of raping the woman in her apartment, claiming that he took her to a bedroom and "threw" her on a bed, where he removed her bikini bottoms before raping her.
The lawsuit alleges that Brown, who was a close family friend and a physician, continued to contact her for weeks after the assault, even convincing her to take a pill to avoid becoming pregnant. Brown allegedly became "louder and angrier" after the woman declined to go to his bedroom while they were recording a song at his house, according to the report.
On Friday, Brown seemingly addressed the claim on his Instagram Story, stating, "I hope you notice this pattern of concealment whenever I'm releasing music or projects. ‘They try to pull some real stuff.” However, one of the woman's lawyers, George Vrabeck, denied this allegation in a statement by claiming that he was unfamiliar with what Brown had been referring to in his blog.
"We are attorneys for a young woman who has been raped," he added. "Come on, it's not the Illuminati. We intend to hold ALL organizations accountable in order to begin eliminating this conduct from our culture."Brown has a history of violence against women, including Karrueche Tran's 2018 restraining order request, as well as his 2009 felony conviction for assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna, which resulted in her hospitalization. In 2018, he was sued by a second lady, who claimed that he trapped her in his house and raped her numerous times while also allegedly striking a second woman during an argument.
