Chris Brown is back in the headlines. 

Earlier Tuesday, a judicial source close to the investigation confirmed to NBC News the the 29-year-old Grammy winner was detained by police in Paris and accused of aggravated rape and drug offenses. CBS News reported the singer was still in custody on Tuesday. E! News has reached out to Brown's attorney, his music label, police and the French prosecutor for comment. 

Later Tuesday, the singer issued a denial on social media. "I WANNA MAKE IT PERFECTLY CLEAR...... THIS IS FALSE AND A WHOLE LOT OF CAP! NNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEERRRRRR!!!!!! FOR MY DAUGHTER AND MY FAMILY THIS IS SO DISPRESPECTFUL AND IS AGAINST MY CHARACTER AND MORALS!!!!!" he captioned a photo that read, "THIS B--CH LYIN'."

He's no stranger to the judicial system here in the United States. The star has faced arrests, served jail time and probation, been sued and has had restraining orders taken out against him in the years since his high-profile assault case against ex-girlfriend Rihanna
