This morning I filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court on behalf of a young woman who shall be known as Jane Doe against singer, Chris Brown, his friend, Lowell Grissom Jr., and others.” Gloria Allred told YC Wednesday afternoon. “The lawsuit alleges that on or about February 23, 2017 and into the early morning hours of February 24, 2017, our client, the plaintiff in this case, attended a concert at a venue called One Oak.”

Attorney Gloria Allred is expected to hold a press conference Wednesday morning where she will discuss a lawsuit stemming from the alleged sexual assault of a young woman at singer Chris Brown’s home.

According to a statement released by Allred’s office, she is filing the suit on behalf of the victim who was “repeatedly sexually assaulted while falsely imprisoned in one of the bedrooms of Chris Brown’s house.”

Brown has not been accused of direct involvement in the alleged incident.

The woman is identified only as “Jane Doe” in the lawsuit.
