“While hardcore “partying” took place in Brown’s house, Plaintiff sat in a room near the dining area/kitchen, isolating herself from other guests and partiers, hoping that Brown and the other partiers would leave her alone.” Gloria Allred told YC. “Plaintiff became scared and intimidated when she saw Brown and Grissom in possession of multiple guns in the house. Plaintiff also felt intimidated by the aggressive behavior of some of Brown’s guests and the general atmosphere at 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.” Allred told us, informing us that her client “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.”
Gloria Allred’s lawsuit alleges that on or about February 23, 2017 and into the early hours of February 24, 2017, her client attended a concert at a venue called One Oak.
All was good, until her client attended the after party at a recording studio to meet the defendants, Grissom “Young Lo” and Chris Brown.
Allred states once her client arrived at the studio, her phone was taken away from her. “She was told that Brown did not want anyone to have their phones in the studio.” Allred tells YC.
When her client asked to leave, she was “forced to go to [Chris] Brown’s home because she perceived that she would only be able to retrieve her phone there.” Allred tells us.
At the house, Chris Brown “provided alcohol and illicit drugs to his guests and/or the guests consumed drugs that they carried onto the premises. Plaintiff believes that the drugs Brown provided to his guests or that were brought by his guests were or included cocaine, “Molly,” and marijuana.” Allred continues. When her mother lost contact with her, she allegedly used software to track her daughter’s phone which led her to Chris Brown’s home.
When she arrived, “Brown refused to open the gate and denied the police access onto his property. Brown also ordered Grissom and others to hide a duffel bag filled with guns. When Plaintiff saw that Brown was defiant to even the police, Plaintiff became even more afraid.” Allred tells us. After the police left, Brown allegedly started handing out drugs and alcohol again — noticing men walking around with guns, Allred states her client was not only frightened but intimidated.
“That is why we have filed this case today alleging sexual battery, gender violence, a violation of Ralphs Civil Rights Act, battery, assault, interference with the exercise of civil rights, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence.” Allred says.
“She does not want any other young woman 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.”
