According to TMZ, Chris Brown is being sued for a $20 million lawsuit for allegedly raping a woman, Jane Doe, on a yacht parked at Diddy’s Star Island home on December 30, 2020.
The woman who has accused the singer of alleged rape is a professional choreographer, dancer, model, and musical artist who described that the incident took place within minutes. She claims that Chris Brown grabbed the phone of a friend with whom she was FaceTiming and invited her to come to Diddy’s home on Miami’s Star Island as soon as possible.
The woman further in her claims explained that when she reached the yacht, Chris asked her if she wanted a drink and motioned her towards the kitchen and when they entered the kitchen, the singer handed her a red cup with a mixed drink and the two of them started casually talking. After the singer re-filled her cup the second time, she mentioned that she began to feel ‘ a sudden, unexplained change in consciousness’.
In her lawsuit, the woman claimed that soon after feeling a change in her consciousness, she felt "disoriented, physically unstable, and started to fall in and out of sleep" and that is when Chris led her into the room. She was half asleep and probably drugged. Further in her lawsuit, she has mentioned that Chris closed the bedroom door, stopping her from leaving, removed her bikini bottoms, and started kissing her. The woman explains that even though she was half-asleep, she tried to ask the singer to stop but he persisted and raped her.
The woman also claimed that Chris Brown ejaculated inside her, jumped up, and announced that he was ‘done’. She also claimed that Chris did text her the next day and demanded she take Plan B (to take a contraceptive) and she is now suing the singer for $20 million in damages claiming the alleged rape is causing her severe emotional distress.
Attorneys Ariel Mitchell and George Vrabeck are representing Jane Doe and have shared with TMZ that she did not report the rape to cops at the time because she was a medical student and felt embarrassed.
