According to French magazine Closer, that is where the alleged rape took place.

The woman filed a complaint to police, who opened an investigation. She cannot be named for legal reasons.

According to her police statement, the woman claimed she and another friend were invited back to the hotel by Brown and two other men, but she was separated from her friend and ended up alone with Brown.

Chris is yet to release a statement on the arrest.

Prosecutors in the French capital confirmed that the 29-year-old faced criminal charges after the alleged sex attack a week ago.

"He is accused of a rape and is being held at the judicial police offices in the 1arrondissement," said a prosecuting source.

"He was arrested with two others on Monday, and interviews and other enquiries are ongoing. The offence is said to have taken place on the night of January 15 this year."

The woman claimed she was left alone with the star, said a second source.

"A total of three men were arrested at Mr Brown's hotel. They did not resist police, and now have lawyers representing them."aris prosecutors now have the option of releasing Brown and the other two men, or opening a criminal investigation.

Chris is currently dating 25-year-old Ammika Harris, who he's been linked to since August 2015.
