An unidentified woman claims singer Chris Brown trapped her in a bedroom of his Los Angeles mansion during a drug-fueled orgy last year — and that one of his friends repeatedly raped her.

In a sexual battery and gender violence lawsuit filed Wednesday, the woman claims Brown orchestrated the horrific assault when he ordered someone to “push a couch in front of the bedroom door” to block it and began playing deafening music and pornography “to create a hyper-sexualized environment in the sealed bedroom.”

The woman says she stated out loud that she wanted to leave and would not consent to any sex, but that a woman in the group “violently grabbed” her throat and forced her perform oral sex on a man identified as Lowell Grissom Jr., a musician and producer who goes by the name “Young Lo.”

The plaintiff said the naked woman, identified only as Doe X, also sat on her face, “using her legs to pin plaintiff down while forcing plaintiff to perform oral sex on her.”

The plaintiff claims Grissom eventually followed her around Brown’s house, raping her twice.

“These are very, very serious allegations,” the plaintiff’s lawyer Gloria Allred told the Daily News after filing the lawsuit at Los Angeles County Superior Court.

The petitioner claims in her paperwork that she ended up at Brown’s house after attending a concert at the Hollywood hotspot One Oak on Feb. 23, 2017, and receiving an invitation to attend an “after party” at a recording studio.

The woman alleges her phone was confiscated at the studio and that the only reason she continued on to Brown’s private residence was to get her device back.

The new lawsuit alleges Brown also waved a gun in the air during the party and refused to open his security gate when police arrived at the residence because the plaintiff’s worried mom had tracked her cell phone to the address and called cops.

Allred said her client is seeking general and punitive damages to be decided at trial. Allred said the woman has reported her allegations to Los Angeles police, but the lawyer declined to give a specific timeline.

Brown, 29, has faced accusations of misconduct before.

The “Run It” singer pleaded guilty to felony assault of his ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 and was ordered to attend an anger management rehabilitation center.

Brown’s ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran, 29, won an emergency stay-away order last year after claiming Brown punched her in the stomach twice and pushed her down stairs during their relationship.


Jordan Peele announced his new movie Tuesday, his first since the Oscar-winning “Get Out.”

The director failed to give any information about his new project, titled “Us,” but shared the poster on Twitter: a pair of heads in smoky black against a dirty white background. “A new nightmare,” the description reads.

Lupita Nyong’o (“Black Panther”), Elisabeth Moss (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) and Winston Duke (“Black Panther”) are all circling roles in the film, according to Variety.

Peele signed a first-look deal with Universal last May, just after the wild success of “Get Out,” which opened No. 1 at the domestic box office and grossed an eventual $255 million worldwide.

“Get Out” earned a Best Picture Oscar nomination — one of just a few horror films to do so — while Peele became just the third person to be nominated for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay in their directorial debut.

“Us” is scheduled for a March 15 release.
