Another disturbing chapter in the saga of pop star Chris Brown is unfolding in Paris today.

According to Huffington Post, Brown is currently in custody after being detained by French authorities on rape charges.

Two unidentified individuals were detained along with Brown.

They are believed to be members of his entourage.

Brown's label, Sony Music, has declined a request for comment and has not yet revealed why Brown traveled to Paris in the first place.

The woman who filed the complaint says that she met Brown and his entourage on the night of January 15 at the club Le Crystal in the 8th arrondissement near the Champs-Elysees.

Early on the morning of January 16, the group proceeded to Mandarin Oriental Hotel near the Concorde Plaza in central Paris, which is presumably where the alleged assault occurred.

Brown, of course, is no stranger to scandals and legal entanglements.

After a promising start in the music industry that began with his first single going platinum in 2004, Brown's success as a musician became overshadowed by his increasingly tumultuous personal life.

In 2009 Brown assaulted then-girlfriend Rihanna just prior to that year's Grammy Awards ceremony.

Though he avoided jail time in connection with that incident, the singer's troubles with the law were only beginning.

In 2014, Brown was imprisoned after being arrested and for assault and getting kicked out of court-ordered rehab.

Though sentenced to 131 days, Brown wound up spending less than a month behind bars.

Brown's legal troubles have continued in the years since.

Most recently, he was arrested after a concert in July on a felony battery charge stemming from an April 2017 incident in which he was accused of punching a man who photographed him without permission.

Moments ago, CNN reported that in addition to the rape complaint, Brown is currently being held on undisclosed drug charges.

The outlet reached out to Brown's attorney, who declined to comment.

We'll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.
