As being reported, a 24-year-old woman has alleged that the celebrity singer assaulted her in a hotel suite in the city earlier this month. Where he was staying during Paris Fashion Week.

She reportedly told police that the pair met at a nightclub in central Paris, close to the Champs-Elysées, before they returned to the hotel.

Two other men, identified as Brown’s bodyguard and a friend, have also been arrested, reports news agency.

This is not the first time that the singer has fallen into the encounter with the law. He holds a number of previous, high-profile convictions for violence. He has received five years’ probation and a community service order for assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, in his car in 2009.

Earlier in 2016, he was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after a woman told police he had threatened her with a gun. But he was freed later, and his lawyer said the accusations against Brown were “demonstrably false”.

He released a new single earlier this month and has a new album coming this year. Six of his albums have gone platinum.

Brown is best-known for hits in the 2000s such as “Run It” and “Kiss Kiss.” He retains a hard core of fans, including nearly 50 million followers on Instagram.
