Chris Brown and several members of the singer’s entourage are facing a lawsuit after a woman was allegedly sexually assaulted at his house by his friend, Lowell Grissom Jr. Representing the woman, who is identified only as Jane Doe, lawyer Gloria Allred said that her client “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.”
“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,” said Allred on Wednesday. “She does not want any other young women to endure the violent sexual assaults that she was forced to endure in an environment of guns and drugs. We look forward to our client having the opportunity to have her day in court. We want to hold accountable those who were responsible for the gender violence inflicted upon her.”
The lawsuit alleges that Doe had her phone confiscated by Brown’s entourage at an after party at a music studio following a live performance by Brown. According to the suit, Grissom Jr. refused to return the woman’s phone and told her that they were moving to Brown’s home, prompting her to follow them with the hope of retrieving her phone. While at Brown’s house, Doe said that the singer gave all the women there a pill and told them to take it to have a “good time.” She refused to take the pill. Doe’s mother, concerned about being unable to reach her daughter’s phone, allegedly called traced her phone’s location to Brown’s house and asked police to go there. Brown, whom Doe said had intimidated Doe and others by waving around a gun he kept in his waistband, allegedly refused to allow the police onto his property and had Grissom and others hide a duffel bag full of firearms.
After the police left, Doe said she tried again to get her phone from Grissom but he refused and sexually assaulted her repeatedly. After she managed to escape the house, she said, she went to a rape treatment center and told police about what transpired.
