The American singer Chris Brown has been released again. The public prosecutor in Paris announced this to TMZ on Tuesday evening .

Earlier in the day the singer was arrested on suspicion of rape. Closer magazine reported earlier that the French authorities had begun an investigation into the singer. A 24-year-old woman would have accused him.

According to the woman, Brown would have sexually abused her on the night of January 15 to 16 in his hotel room, after the two met in the club Le Crystal, near the Champs-Elysées in Paris. The police report states that the woman went with Brown to his hotel, the Mandarin Oriental. The rape would have taken place there.

Brown gave a reaction on Instagram for the first time on Tuesday evening. “I want to make it very clear that this is not true and just pure nonsense”, writes the 29-year-old singer in a caption to an image in which the text ‘This bitch lyin’ can be read. “Never. This is disrespectful to my daughter and family. ”
