According to a police official, one of those detained is Brown's bodyguard and the singer has been in police custody since Monday.

A 24-year-old woman alleges that the star assaulted her in a hotel suite in the city earlier this month.

The recent report of the singer's arrest in Paris led many to see similarities between Chris Brown and fellow USA singer R. Kelly, who is now facing a number of allegations of multiple cases of sexual misconduct with underage girls.

Two police officials say U.S. singer Chris Brown and two other people are in custody in Paris after a woman filed a rape complaint.

The Grammy Award-winning singer was detained Monday on potential charges of aggravated rape and drug infractions and remained in custody Tuesday, a judicial official said.
