US singer Chris Brown was arrested in Paris on Monday with two other people on suspicion of rape, Closer magazine reported. Twitter users have been quick to draw parallels with the case of American R&B star R. Kelly, who is also embroiled in a sex abuse scandal.

It didn't take long for commentators on social media to conclude that the two US singers share more in common than their love for music, as news of Chris Brown's arrest surfaced on Tuesday.

Some instantly argued that the incident spelled doom for Brown's career, while others plainly wondered "what is wrong" with the pop star.

The news of the arrest didn't come as a surprise to many, as news of Brown's history of violent behaviour flooded the media in 2009. The infamous assault against singer Rihanna, Brown's girlfriend at the time, saw the Barbados-born singer left with bruises and a split lip, after he attacked her in his car.

At the time Brown received five years of probation and a community service order for the assault.

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