Chris Brown was arrested in Paris on Monday with two other people on suspicion of rape, a French police source said.

Closer magazine first posted about the arrest, which claimed "Brown, his bodyguard and a friend were detained after a 24-year-old woman alleged she was raped at the singer’s suite at the Mandarin Oriental hotel on the night of January 15."

The woman said she had met the men at a Paris nightclub earlier in the evening, according to the magazine.

Update: Brown has since been released with the charges dropped.
