The singer's Paris-based lawyer is asking for a criminal charge for the "slanderous accusation" of rape that allegedly took place Jan. 15.
Following his arrest and release on an accusation of rape earlier this week, an attorney for Chris Brown has submitted a defamation case against his accuser in Paris courts. The filing, which identifies the defendant as only Miss K., was submitted to the Paris Prosecutor's office on Thursday afternoon (Jan. 24); a spokesperson for Brown confirmed the filing to Billboard.
In the complaint, a copy of which was obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Brown's attorney is seeking a criminal prosecution for the “slanderous accusation” of the defendant citing a date of Jan. 18. That would be consistent with the date the alleged victim gave her statement to the police, after the events she said took place on overnight from Jan. 15–16.
