A Los Angeles woman identified only as Jane Doe, filed a lawsuit on Wednesday against Chris Brown and a fellow rapper, alleging she was repeatedly raped and sexually assaulted at Brown’s home during a drug- and alcohol-fuelled party last year.
The lawsuit says the 29-year-old rapper provided alcohol and drugs, including cocaine, ecstasy and marijuana, at his home.
According to the lawsuit, following a concert at 1 Oak club in West Hollywood, the plaintiff and her roommate went to an after party where they met Grissom and Brown and had their phones confiscated. The suit says that the plaintiff later ended up at Brown’s home as she was told by Grissom she could retrieve her cell phone at that location, where the party was continuing.
The R&B star Chris Brown is facing claims in a lawsuit that a woman was repeatedly raped by a friend of his during a drug- and alcohol-fueled party at his Los Angeles house last year.
The woman, called Jane Doe in the suit to protect her privacy, is also suing a woman who the plaintiff says forced her into a sexual act. The female defendant is called Doe X because the accuser did not know her name. Fifty other people are listed as defendants, all unnamed because the accuser did not know their names.
The complaint says that at one point, the plaintiff was led to a bedroom where several women were having sex with Grissom and Brown.
“Plaintiff refused to undress and made it clear that she did not want to engage in any sexual activity with anyone,” according to the document.
“She filed this lawsuit because she wants justice for herself, but she also wants to warn other young women about the potential danger to themselves if they have their phone taken away and if they go to Chris Brown’s house,” Allred said.
She also alleged that another unidentified woman at the party assaulted her, forcing her to perform oral sex. The assault was all the more gruesome, the lawsuit alleges, as the attacker – identified as Doe X – was menstruating at the time.
“This is one of the most horrific cases involving alleged sexual assault that I have ever seen,” Gloria Allred, one of three lawyers representing the woman, said in a statement.
“Our client, Jane Doe, has been severely traumatised by what she was forced to suffer.”
