The two men arrested alongside Brown have also reportedly been released. 

He is no stranger to run-ins with the law; in 2009 he was arrested and charged with physical assault charges following an incident with his then-girlfriend, Rihanna. As a result of the assault, he was charged with felony assault and making criminal threats in that incident, and received five years probation and community service.

He was also arrested in 2013 after an alleged incident in a hotel in Washington and kicked out of rehab that same year for smashing his mother's car window during a family session. 



Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has firmly denied rape allegations that were first made against him in 2009.

The dad took to Twitter to clear his name in a series of tweets.

Kathryn claimed that the attack happened in a Las Vegas hotel room in 2009. She says that during the alleged attack, she repeatedly said no, giving verbal non-consent.

It is believed she went to the hospital for a sexual assault examination after the alleged incident.

According to the Associated Press, police in Las Vegas have re-opened the sexual assault case.

Yesterday, it came to light that former Gossip Girl actor Ed Westwick was accused of rape and sexual assault by actress Kristina Cohen. 

Kristina penned a lengthy Facebook post, in which she claims that she was 'held down' and raped by Westwick at his residence three years ago.

Taking to Twitter, the America's Next Top Model contestant wrote: 

'I know you, I know the truth. Such sadness in my heart.' 

'I love your kind gentle soul. Bless.'

Jessica's tweet was met with criticism from many. 

'Wow, women like you sadden me, people like you are the reason why victims never speak up,' wrote one 

However, others rushed to defend Westwick in the comments section of her tweet. 

'You know the truth based on some wannabe actress's FACEBOOK post?' tweeted one, in response to someone defending Cohen.

'Please have some common sense here. She wanted her 15 minutes.'

Jessica also posted to Instagram, selecting an image of some bold graffiti spelling out the word 'Bullshit.'

'Nah, thanks mate. l ain’t havin' any of that,' she captioned the post.

Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding are due in court this morning to face rape charges.

The Ulster and Ireland rugby players have strongly denied the allegations made against them, with Stuart Olding's solicitor saying he “is anxious to clear his name in court.”

Jackson, 25, is charged with one count of rape and one count of sexual assault. Olding, 24, is charged with two counts of rape against the same woman.

It was revealed last month that 77-year-old veteran actor Bill Cosby was facing allegations of drugging, sexual assault and rape. The allegations, which date back decades, came to light again recently when comedian Hannibal Buress made reference to reports that the much-loved actor and comedian had, with the help of his PR team, continuously try to hide the alleged crimes.

Yesterday, Bill Cosby’s lawyer released a statement which asserts that the actor has no intention of addressing the rumours, saying: “Over the last several weeks, decade-old, discredited allegations against Mr. Cosby have resurfaced. The fact that they are being repeated does not make them true. Mr. Cosby does not intend to dignify these allegations with any comment.”

The star of The Cosby Show was a guest on American radio talk show Weekend Edition on Saturday morning, but refused to answer any questions regarding the allegations and simply shook his head when the issue was raised.

Cosby was due to appear on Late Show with David Letterman later this week, but it has been reported that the star has cancelled the appearance. This comes after reports that the actor also postponed an appearance on Queen Latifah’s talk show in recent days.

Cosby’s lawyer, John P. Schmidt has asserted that there wil be no further statement from Cosby’s representatives and says: “Mr. Cosby would like to thank all his fans for the outpouring of support and assure them, at age 77, he is doing his best work."
