CHRIS BROWN IN TROUBLE
Chris Brown and two other people are in custody in Paris after a woman filed a rape complaint, French officials said Tuesday (Jan. 22). The Grammy Award-winning singer was detained Monday (Jan. 21) on potential charges of aggravated rape and drug infractions and remained in custody Tuesday, a judicial official said. Investigators have another two days to decide whether to let him go or file preliminary charges.
Brown’s publicists at Sony Music would not immediately comment on the complaint or say what Brown, 29, was doing in Paris; a spokesperson for Brown told Billboard they had no comment on the report at press time. Brown has been in repeated legal trouble since pleading guilty to the felony assault in 2009 of his then-girlfriend, Rihanna. He completed his probation in that case in 2015, but has continued to have run-ins with police.
The woman who filed the complaint said she met Brown and his friends overnight Jan. 15-16 at the club Le Crystal in the 8th arrondissement near the Champs-Elysees, and then they all went to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel near the Concorde Plaza in central Paris, according to the official. One of Brown’s bodyguards is among the others detained in the Paris investigation, according to the official. Neither official was authorized to be publicly named discussing the investigation.
The detention was originally reported by French gossip magazine Closer. 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. He posted an Instagram photo Monday from Paris appearing to show him at a night club.
He released a new single earlier this month and has a new album coming this year. Six of his albums have gone platinum. Brown retains a hard core of fans, including nearly 50 million followers on Instagram. He posted an Instagram photo Monday from Paris appearing to show him at a nightclub, among several recent posts. Followers responded with mixed messages to the rape accusation.
It’s the latest legal trouble for Brown, who was arrested at the end of a concert last year to face a felony battery charge involving a nightclub photographer.
In 2013, Brown was charged with misdemeanor assault after he was accused of striking a man outside a Washington, D.C., hotel. He was ordered into rehab but was dismissed for violating facility rules. Brown spent 2½ months in custody. After he completed court-ordered anger-management classes, Brown was accused of throwing a brick at his mother’s car following a counseling session.
After Brown posted a picture to his Instagram followers in January 2018 showing his 3-year-old daughter, Royalty, cuddling with a pet monkey, California fish and wildlife agents seized the capuchin monkey named Fiji from his home in Los Angeles. Brown was later handed a misdemeanor charge for lacking a permit for the primate. He is scheduled to be arraigned Feb. 6 in Los Angeles.

BURNABOY MAKES HISTORY AGAIN
Talk of Burnaboy a week back, one thing that would come to people’s mind is himself and Mr Eazi making history as the first Nigerians Scheduled to Perform at the prestigious COACHLEA Music and Art Festival held yearly at the California Polo Club USA, that would make it to the event and perform. I used those lines because, they were not the first to be scheduled to perform at the event. Wizkid was the first. He was scheduled to perform at last year’s edition but he missed it due to VISA issues as we were told.
Burnaboys making history alongside Mr Eazi was not the trend, the trend was his reaction to the way his name appeared on the Coachlea Flier. According to a post on his Instagram page………
