It didn't take long for commentators on social media to conclude that the two USA singers share more in common than their love for music, as news of Chris Brown's arrest surfaced on Tuesday.

In 2016, Brown was arrested in Los Angeles after a woman said he had pointed a gun at her.

A woman has accused Brown, along with his bodyguard and a friend, of raping her in the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Paris on Tuesday night last week, a source close to the case said on condition of anonymity.

The alleged victim reportedly claimed that Brown had invited her to the hotel and then attacked her when they were left alone together.

Brown's publicists at Sony Music would not immediately comment.

Brown pleading guilty to felony assault in 2009 of his then-girlfriend, Rihanna. He completed his probation in that case in 2015, but has continued to have run-ins with police.

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