Chris Brown is no stranger to lawsuits — the veteran R&B singer has faced his fair share over the years. Now, the 32-year-old has another one to add to the list. According to TMZ, Brown is being sued by a woman who claims he sexually assaulted her on a yacht parked at Diddy’s Miami estate in December 2020.
The woman, only identified as Jane Doe, is reportedly a professional choreographer, dancer, model and musical artist. She says Brown went from being “friendly” with her to attacking her within minutes. She says it all started when Brown “grabbed the phone of a friend she was FaceTiming” and successfully persuaded her to come to Diddy’s home on Star Island.
Once she arrived, the alleged victim says Chris Brown approached her and asked if she wanted a drink, motioning her toward the kitchen area on the yacht. Brown handed her a red cup with a mixed drink and they started talking. Once he refilled her cup, she says experienced “a sudden, unexplained change in consciousness.”
The suit says she also felt “disoriented, physically unstable and started to fall in and out of sleep,” which is when she says Brown led her into a bedroom “drugged” and “half-asleep.” She alleges Brown then removed her bikini bottoms and raped her despite her resistance.
Jane Doe says Brown ejaculated inside of her, jumped up and said he was “done.” The following day, he allegedly text her to get a Plan B to prevent any unplanned pregnancies, so she did. She’s now asking for $20 million, citing “severe emotional distress.”
Doe’s attorneys, Ariel Mitchell and George Vrabeck, says Doe didn’t report the alleged sexual assault to police because she was a medical student at the time and was “embarrassed.”
In 2020, Brown avoided a sexual assault lawsuit after another Jane Doe filed for a dismissal. The alleged victim claimed she was assaulted inside Brown’s home, but no further details were provided. Just a year prior, Brown was arrested in Paris on charges of rape and narcotics charges. He ultimately sued the woman for defamation. Sources close to Brown believe he’s been a “easy target for anyone to cry wolf.”
