Chris Brown released without charge and is now free to leave France after alleged sexual attack
After Chris Brown was arrested for an alleged rape case in Paris, he was released from prison without any charge and is now free to leave France whenever he'd like.
Without any proof to tie the claims, French prosecutors released Chris Brown and allowed him to leave France without posting any Bail. He and two other men tied to the sexual assault claim were released, but the police department claimed that the investigations will not close just because they were released.
According to reports by TMZ, a woman filed a rape complaint against the singer, saying that he raped her in a hotel dressing room for 25 to 30 minutes. After the woman shared what happened through different interviews, the sexual assault claim was reported to be "brutal and violent".
The woman, a 24-year-old model, claims she met Brown at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Paris last January 15 at around 10:30 PM. The two of them then made their way into a nightclub called Le Crystal. Known as her pseudonym Karima, the alleged victim explained that at around 4 AM, Chris Brown and his friends decided to return to their hotel. While she said she was tired, the group forced her to head back to the Mandarin with more people they met at the club.
When she entered the bathroom inside the singer's suite, Brown allegedly followed her and made her enter a dressing room before closing the door.
"It lasted 25 to 30 minutes."
Two days later, she went to the cops. It took a while because she was scared but soon realized that she didn't want other girls to experience what she had to in the hands of Brown.

However, TMZ reports that people close to Brown have said that the singer was never alone with Karima and that his girlfriend, Ammika Harris, was in the hotel room the entire time. In fact, the situation was far from intimate as there were more than 20 people hanging out in the suite, listening to music that the singer was playing on his phone.
While Chris himself made sure to set the record straight and say that the rape allegations were not true, his publicists and US attorney, Mark Geragos, have refused to give interviews and statements to the press.
