Reads like game play from Bill Cosby/Noriyuki Yamaguchi playbook:

- “She says the drink he [Chris Brown] offered her there made her feel "disoriented (and) physically unstable." The filing says Brown led her into a bedroom where, despite her protests, he raped her.”

-6 ( +4 / -10 )

Let’s recall Chris Brown also cried on camera the last two times he attacked women and claimed it was ‘others’ out to get him:

- “Whenever im releasing music or projects 'THEY' try to pull some real [term flagged by cite]." Brown did not specify who "they" were.” -

- “In 2009, Brown was convicted of beating fellow singer Rihanna, his girlfriend at the time, who missed the Grammy Awards because of her injuries. He also was previously accused of raping a woman in a luxury Paris hotel. He denied the claim, and was not charged.” -

Given his history, by all appearances it would seem Brown is guilty.

However, it is exactly because of his history that he is an easy target for a trumped-up lawsuit...she didn't report the rape because she was embarrassed...which makes it a strictly he said she said game.

Oh for heaven's sake, when will these ridiculous accusations stop?

Did it or not, going directly to a civil suit rather than going to the police, at least to me, calls into question her statement that she is "seeking justice for herself"

People seek "justice" through the criminal courts. People look for $$$$$ in civil one's!

Rich and unstable characters are the easiest targets. How many times have we heard someone like Kanye or Chris Brown get easily provoked, they snap and victim gets their payday?

Does not sound like there will be any evidence. He said, she said.

Not a criminal suit, so there are different rules of "evidence". Just has to

convince a jury, and it will come down to who is more believable.

Given his track record and his disposition, this sounds all too real to me.

He's abused an ethnic Vietnamese GF in the past as well.

Cosby did pay off a few women back in the 90s. But more allegations came up. 62 women who don't know each other do not a conspiracy make.

Just like other stars with similar track records, from Harvey Weinstein to R Kelly to Rolf Harris to Gary Glitter to Marilyn Manson to Donald Trump.

No lies, it all adds up.

Enough is enough

Chris Clown didn’t do it!

-5 ( +2 / -7 )

the women sure do act like they dont know who Chris Brown is or what he has been accused of previously.

Why would they go hang out with such a guy anywhere near a bedroom?

Or maybe they do know, and that makes his an easier target to get that money? who knows.....

The man who beat up his gf is accused of rape, and everyone thinks it MUST be a trumped-up charge. Right - because men who beat up women never rape them. Obviously Chris Brown is a stellar human being. He only hits women, doesn't RAPE them. Sheesh, how can anyone doubt his word?

-6 ( +5 / -11 )

Sure. No one knows the facts. Innocent until proven guilty. It could be a case of a devious woman looking to get some money out of a court action (2-5% probability?).

But honestly, the guy has form, as they say. He's never struck me as having an ounce of class. Honestly, what do your instincts tell you? Would you feel totally fine about it if your sister called and told you that she'd agreed to go on a date with him next week?

Unless you were there then you do not know. The burden of proof falls on the accuser.

Drake roasted for a post sex act, but everyone’s ignoring a disturbing detail

https://www.news.com.au/entertainment/celebrity-life/hook-ups-break-ups/drake-roasted-for-a-post-sex-act-but-everyones-ignoring-a-disturbing-detail/news-story/30ad8450627faa86ebfe23ffb1c70892

Drake another well known performer is also recently been sued for damages by an alleged victim because after sex with another aspiring "model/actor/choreographer" he put hot sauce in his used condom and threw it away in the bathroom trash can.

That same woman went in after him, took the condom out of the trash and attempted to insert the contents into herself in hopes of getting pregnant and receiving child support.

Now she claims his act of placing hot sauce in his used condom and throwing it away is justification to sue him for her adverse reaction for secretly placing those contents inside her reproductive system.

I would prefer hard evidence before passing judgement on celebrities with less than perfect histories because they can also be victims of conniving people looking for an opportunity for fast money.

Does her race matter? Does anyone care about her ethnicity?

Unlike the others, in Trump's case, it's he said, she said, unlike the others that have better and more reliable evidence against them.

No lies, it all adds up. 

Enough is enough

We hope not at least, but as in Chris's case it would seem that trouble always follows this guy, he just can't stay away from it.

When jerks like Chris learn how to treat their mates or those of the opposite sex with respect, that's when. R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Chris Brown knows nothing about that.

No, it doesn't. I mentioned that as a reference to her last name, which is a Vietnamese name. I just can't remember her name, but I remember the name as being Vietnamese. And no, it doesn't matter what her ethnicity is. It's just a reference, that's all. Woman beaters are buttheads, no matter who or what their ethnicity are or who they abuse are.

Numbers add up over time. They don't lie. And when the abusers and offenders get questioned over it, see how they blubber, quake, shake and go off like a volcano about it. Didja see the CBS interview R Kelly had with Gayle King in 2019? Nagasaki time! And I heard talk about that one when I was vacationing in Ottawa that year.

Mate abuse is about power, fear, ego, domination. So is rape. Chris Brown is an abusive disrespectful bastard.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to solve this equation.

I'm sure that Chris Brown isn't your epitome of a model citizen, but the Jane Doe isn't the brightest star, either. Goes on his private yacht and enters his private bedroom. He probably didn't even have to drug her. Now she wants 20 mil! Goldigger, her and "If I only had a brain", him.

I'm not sure what this has to do with Chris Brown. But if your argument in favor of the accused here is "sometimes women lie" and you expect that to be enough evidence to convince others, then why don't the thousands of actual rapes comitted every single day around the world convince you that "men sometimes rape" in favor of the complainant? If we look at stats, they show that women rarely lie, but men often rape.

That same woman went in after him, took the condom out of the trash and attempted to insert the contents

He beat the shite out of his girlfriend, by breaking her arm and throwing her out of a moving car. He is women beater. Do you honestly think that is insignificant enough to be brushed aside with the phrase "less than perfect"?

because they can also be victims of conniving people looking for an opportunity for fast money.

This so very rarely is the case that I really don't see how you can expect it to be convincing. And on top of that, this is a man who is a known abuser and misogynist. I'd say the deck is squarely stacked against him.

And I fully expect you to eat your words when he's convicted. :)

this happened in Miami on Dec 30, 2020.

In January 2021, she went to his Tarzana, California, home 

On August 26, 2021, Doe says she visited Brown's home studio in California for the second time. After refusing to join him upstairs in a bedroom, Brown called her a "slut" and implied she would not have a music career if she refused to sleep with him.

So yeah, money grab.

Well, you will be waiting and smiling for a long time.

He is not being charged with a crime because there is no evidence. If there was evidence then he would have been arrested.

Both accusers (Brown and Drake's situations) seem to be making a money grab using illogical reasons and being supported by other illogical thinkers.

Being sued is not the same as being convicted. Do you not understand the difference?

He's not being charged with a crime because she has not lodged a criminal complaint with the police, and without that, the police are limited in what they can do. And not being charged with a crime does not mean the same as "not guilty". We both know there are plenty of guilty people running around out there who have never been charged with a crime.

In fact, there are plenty of rapists who have never even been (publicly) accused of rape. The estimate for the US is that 80% of rapes are unreported. In Japan, that estimate is 96%. Have a think on that.

Both accusers (Brown and Drake's situations) seem to be making a money grab using illogical reasons and being supported by other illogical thinkers.

Women don't randomly accuse famous men of rape for money. This is not A Thing like you seem to believe.

What women go though is hard enough when the rapist is just an ordinary person. It's much much worse when the rapist is famous. This is why the vast majority of famous men can get away with rape. There is a whisper network among women who work in Hollywood for a very good reason.

Being sued is not the same as being convicted. Do you not understand the difference?

I just pointed out the same thing. It's civil court vs criminal court.

But we seem to see this very differently - if a woman sues and wins in civil court, it means there was enough evidence to convince the judge. Are you then able to say "there is no evidence"? Or is it more accurate to say that there IS evidence?

Have a think on that one. #logic

I firmly believe that men who support rapists in are themselves very likely to be rapists.
