Chris Brown is named in a lawsuit involving a woman who claims she was sexually assaulted by one of his friends in the singer’s home.
The suit that was filed by lawyer Gloria Allred on behalf of the alleged victim claims the “young woman,” referred to as Jane Doe, was raped several times by Lowell Grissom, a rapper who performs under the pseudonyms Young Lo and EverybodyKnowsLo.
“The lawsuit alleges that while she was at Brown’s house, the plaintiff became the victim of horrific sexual assaults, which are described in our lawsuit,” Allred said in a statement. “That is why we have filed this case today alleging sexual battery, gender violence, a violation of Ralph Civil Rights Act, battery, assault, interference with the exercise of civil rights, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence.”
The lawsuit from Doe recounts the events following a concert of Brown in 2017.
Doe revealed that upon entering Brown’s home for an afterparty, Grissom allegedly confiscated her cellphone. Brown had previously faced legal issues stemming from a confiscated cellphone at his house.
“This is one of the most horrific cases involving alleged sexual assaults that I have ever seen, and our client, Jane Doe, has been severely traumatized by what she was forced to suffer,” the statement said further. “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.”
