Despite recent rape allegations made against Chris Brown, longtime friend Justin Bieber and Nick Cannon are still fans of the singer.

Brown was recently arrested and detained temporarily in Paris after a 24-year-old woman accused the singer of raping her in a hotel room last week. He was released without charges and said on Instagram that the allegations were "false" and that the "bitch" was "lyin." Brown's attorney confirmed to E! News that they are preparing to file a defamation complaint. French police are still investigating the case.

On Tuesday night, Brown posted on his Instagram page a video of himself dancing inside a studio.

Bieber, a longtime friend of the singer who has collaborated with him on music, was impressed.
