Chris Brown I’m Suing Alleged Rape Victim for Defamation

Chris Brown is going on the offensive after his arrest for allegedly raping a woman in Paris, because he’s going to sue her for defamation.

Chris’ Parisian lawyer, Raphael Chiche, says, “Chris Brown is free. No lawsuits were filed against him. He vigorously challenges the charges against him. A complaint for slanderous denunciation will be filed tomorrow with the public prosecutor of Paris.”

As we reported, Chris claims he was set up by the 24-year-old model, who claimed Chris took her to his hotel in Paris and violently raped her. Chris called BS, saying he was never alone with the women.  We’re told he insists he was playing music off his iPhone in the living room of the suite with 20 people around him the entire time.

Brown was released from police custody Tuesday, but prosecutors say the investigation is still ongoing. A source in the judicial system of Paris tells TMZ the fact Brown was released with no conditions and free to leave the country is a sign authorities have problems with the case. 

Chris Brown Alleged Victim Describes Alleged Rape … ‘Brutal,’ ‘Violent’

Exclusive Details

Chris Brown allegedly raped a woman in a hotel dressing room for 25-30 minutes and it was “brutal and violent” — so says Closer Magazine, which posted an article claiming to have interviewed the alleged victim.

Closer, which broke the story Brown was being investigated for rape, calls the woman by a pseudonym — Karima — a 24-year-old model who told the mag she met Brown at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Paris on January 15 at around 10:30 PM and then went to a nightclub.  

Karima told Closer at 4 AM Brown and his crew wanted to return to the hotel, and she said she was tired but they convinced her to go back to the Mandarin with a group of people.

She says once inside his suite, she went to the bathroom, Brown followed her and “catches me by the right arm. He makes me enter a sort of dressing room. He closed the door … it lasted 25-30 minutes.”

She describes the alleged rape as “brutal and violent.” She says she was then “abused” by one of Brown’s friends and a bodyguard.

Karima says she went to cops 2 days later, adding she was scared but ultimately decided she didn’t want Brown to “be able to do the same things to other girls.”

Someone connected to Brown tells us the singer was never alone with the alleged victim and says Chris’ girlfriend, Ammika Harris, was in the hotel room the whole time. He says there were more than 20 people in the room “hanging out” and listening to music Brown was playing on his iPhone.

We have reached out to Brown’s U.S. lawyer for a response, but so far no word back.

Prince Philip Car Crash Victim Suggests Cover-Up And Downplaying of Injuries

The woman who was hurt in a crash involving Prince Philip says she was told to shut her yap and also claims the gravity of her injuries have been seriously downplayed by what she suggests is a cover-up effort by police on behalf of the Royals.

In an interview with the Mirror, Emma Fairweather says she was told by authorities not to speak to anyone following the accident and to expect a call from the Palace … presumably from Philip or the Queen herself to offer an apology, well-wishes or … something.

She claims that personal call never came, and instead … a police family liaison officer phoned, passing on some vague message from the Royals.

Emma also claims the family liaison officer would call to check in on her in the aftermath of the accident … adding that shortly after speaking with the officer, a report came out detailing her status, which she says mischaracterized her well-being just ’cause she’d been discharged.

Emma — who was a passenger in the vehicle that Philip hit — suffered a broken wrist in the accident on Thursday, and says at one point she was circling the possibility of surgery.

None of that was reflected in the reports that came out though, which she doesn’t seem too pleased with. Adding insult to injury … Philip was back behind the wheel over the weekend, without a seat belt, no less.

Police say they issued a warning to Philip after photos of him driving without a seat belt went around the web.

Lisa Van Allen Alleged R. Kelly Victim Opens Up to Jada Pinkett … Sheds Tears Telling Her Story

Jada Pinkett Smith, along with her daughter Willow and mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones, had a heart-to-heart with one of R. Kelly‘s alleged victims … and things got very emotional.

Jada had Lisa Van Allen on the latest addition of her Facebook series, “Red Table Talk,” to talk about her history with the singer … who, as you know, is surrounded by controversy and allegations of sexual abuse and child pornography in the wake of Lifetime’s docuseries, “Surviving R. Kelly.”

Lisa says she feels like a weight’s been lifted from her now that she’s able to open up, and she shed some light on how her life became intertwined with Kelly’s. Her claims are disturbing.

She explains that her rough childhood led her to connect with Kelly and view him as her “knight in shining armor,” which is why she overlooked his abuse and other suspicions about him for years.

Earlier in the show, both Jada and Willow also opened up about how they had heard the rumors about Kelly and had their own suspicions.

Jada even said she feels complicit for ignoring the allegations against Kelly, and brought up how as recently as September, she and Will used Kelly’s famous track, “I Believe I Can Fly,” for a video of Will bungee jumping.

Jada and the women in her family are clearly making up for it now, though, and have vowed to continue to help out R. Kelly’s alleged victims. Part two of this episode with Van Allen is expected to air soon. 

R. Kelly STD Criminal Case Closed in Dallas … Alleged Victim to Refile in NYC

EXCLUSIVE

12:16 PM PT — We’ve learned the alleged victim says the incident occurred in New York City and she will personally fly from Texas to Manhattan “in the near future” to file a fresh police report.

The alleged victim’s lawyer, Lydia Agu, tells us before she began representing her, the alleged victim was advised to file a police report in the state where she lived. Although Dallas PD tells us they closed the case because there was “no criminal element,” Agu says this is purely a jurisdictional issue because the alleged crime took place in NYC. 

Agu says her client will fly to NYC and file with the NYPD’s Special Victims Unit. Agu filed a civil lawsuit on behalf of her client — against R. Kelly — in May. R. Kelly will not be charged for allegedly giving a woman an STD after cops in Dallas closed their investigation … TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us … Dallas PD looked into allegations the singer gave an anonymous young woman an STD after allegedly holding her captive as a sex slave in 2017. We’re told no charges will be brought against Kelly in connection to the case .. although, it’s unclear why they reached that conclusion. 

As we reported, the woman filed a police report in 2018 claiming she’d met Kelly in Dallas the year before. She claimed he restrained her, plied her with alcohol and drugs … and gave her an unspecified STD.

Her attorney, Lee Merritt, had said the woman planned to file a civil suit against Kelly as well. 

Kelly, meanwhile, is currently being investigated by the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office in GA — and the State Attorney in Chicago has made a plea for any witnesses or victims to come forward.

We’ve reached out to Merritt for comment … so far, no word back.

Danielle Staub’s Ex She’s Got a Bad Image … So She’s Spinning to Play the Victim

EXCLUSIVE

Danielle Staub‘s estranged husband says she’s getting serious social media blowback for the way she treats people … so she’s trying to take the heat off herself by making up bogus claims about him.

Marty Caffrey tells TMZ … Danielle’s got a major public relations problem in the wake of the final 3 episodes of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” because they revealed her “horrific” treatment of him, his kids and the other cast members.

He claims bad PR is behind Danielle calling cops to his home this week and it’s also why she filed for a protective order against him. According to Marty … Danielle told him she’s been getting “terroristic death threats” online, and she’s blaming them on him.

Marty doesn’t doubt she’s getting threats on social media, and tells us he’s looking into them himself to assure their safety … but denies having any role in them.

As for cops removing him from the house he still lives in with Danielle after she accused him of “emotional torment” and “toying” with her … Caffrey calls BS. He says the 2 have zero interaction and adds, “That’s a joke … I don’t know what kind of mind comes up with this stuff.”

Marty also denies Danielle’s accusations of dragging out their divorce, claiming she took 2 extra months to respond to his settlement terms and tried to lowball him with an offer on their home.

Marty listed their NJ mansion in November — allegedly without telling her — and tells us he’s contemplating taking legal action to determine whether or not she can keep living there.

Yep, this divorce seems on course to get way nastier.

Louis C.K. Dad of Victim Calls Parkland Joke ‘Pathetic’

The father of one of the kids killed in the Parkland Shooting is tearing into Louis C.K. after leaked audio from the comedian’s set included a joke about the massacre.

Fred Guttenberg — who lost his 14-year-old daughter Jamie — in the attack just shared a message for C.K., saying, “To anyone who knows Louis CK, please deliver this message for me. My daughter was killed in the Parkland shooting. My son ran from the bullets. My wife and I deal with loss everyday. Why don’t you come to my house and try out your new pathetic jokes?”

The joke Guttenberg is referring to attacks the Parkland survivors, saying the kids who survived are not interesting just because they went to a high school where people were shot … and that he shouldn’t have to listen to them just because they “pushed some fat kid in the way.”  

The audio was leaked from a show C.K. did earlier this month … he has not commented since it leaked.

Kevin Spacey Lawyers Claim Alleged Sexual Assault Victim Allowed Groping for 3 Minutes

Kevin Spacey‘s lawyers tried to torpedo the sexual assault charge he now faces by trying to convince a judge … a sexual assault victim does not let his assailant grope him for 3 minutes. 

Spacey’s lawyers went to court last week … trying to get an order blocking prosecutors from filing charges … on grounds of insufficient evidence.

According to the transcript — obtained by the Boston Globe — Spacey’s lawyers argued the man — who was 18 at the time — did not report the incident to authorities the night it happened or even the next day. The lawyers say he wasn’t interviewed in person for more than a year.

The alleged victim is the son of former Boston news anchor Heather Unruh, who publicly came forward last year, accusing Spacey of groping her son at the Club Car bar on Nantucket.

Spacey’s lawyers say the alleged victim told cops he was the one who approached Spacey in the bar, eventually exchanging phone numbers with the actor. They also claim he lied about his age, saying he was 23.

The lawyers disclosed Unruh told cops he drank between 8 and 10 drinks — beer and whiskey — in a little over an hour and was so drunk he may have blacked out.

The lawyers’ big point– Unruh allegedly told investigators Spacey groped him for around 3 minutes, claiming he didn’t move away from Spacey or tell him to stop. Attorney Alan Jackson told the judge, “That’s an incredibly long time to have a strange man’s hands in your pants, correct?”

The alleged victim told cops he couldn’t easily move away because the bar was packed.  

The alleged victim sent his girlfriend a Snapchat video during the encounter, but Spacey’s attorney says all it shows is someone’s hand touching another person’s shirt … but no groping.”

The lawyers failed in their bid and Spacey was charged with felony indecent assault and battery.

Spacey released a bizarre video a few days ago, playing the role of his former character on “House of Cards,” President Frank Underwood, urging people not to prejudge the case.
