Chris Brown is preparing to file a lawsuit against the woman in France who has accused him of raping her. Brown’s attorney Raphael Chiche took to his Twitter account twice on Wednesday to issue statements on behalf of his client, who was arrested in Paris on Monday in relation to the allegations.

Brown was released on Tuesday night without charges, though the Paris prosecutor’s office is still investigating. Chiche’s first statement reads, “Chris Brown is free. No lawsuits were filed against him. He vigorously challenges the charges against him. A complaint for slanderous denunciation will be filed tomorrow with the public prosecutor of Paris.”

He then confirmed on Tuesday that he was “preparing” a complaint against the accuser, who said Brown raped her in his hotel rooml at the Mandarin Oriental hotel on the night of January 15th after meeting him and his friends earlier in the eventing at a nightclub.

Brown posted to Instagram in a now-deleted post: “I WANNA MAKE IT PERFECTLY CLEAR. THIS IS FALSE AND A WHOLE LOT OF CAP! [sic] … FOR MY DAUGHTER AND MY FAMILY THIS IS SO DISPRESPECTFUL [sic] AND IS AGAINST MY CHARACTER AND MORALS!!!!!”
