Chris Brown has been ordered to pay $2,500 in sanctions to the woman who is suing over an alleged rape at the singer’s home.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a Los Angeles judge ordered the sanctions along with setting a date for Chris to be deposed.

The suit was brought by a Jane Doe against Chris and his friend Lowell Grissom Jr. The woman claims she went to an after-party at Chris’ Tarzana home in February 2017. She accuses Grissom of sexually assaulting her at the party. He has denied the allegations.

Jane Doe recently asked the court to force Chris to sit for a deposition. She filed a heavily redacted motion which accused him of making it difficult to schedule a depo.

The judge sided with Doe by ordering Chris appear for a deposition at 10am on February 19. Chris will have to pay a total of $2,500 in sanctions.

The original lawsuit was brought against Chris and his friend Lowell Grissom Jr. The woman says she attended an after party at Chris’ home in February 2017. She accuses Lowell of sexually assaulting her at the party. In her suit, Doe accuses the singer of trying to give her cocaine, molly and marijuana before Lowell committed the alleged assault.

The court setback comes as Chris’ lawyers dropped him in the case. His legal representation filed docs accusing the singer of failing to meet his obligations under their contract.

His lawyer, Blair Berk, wrote, “Over the past several months, Mr. Brown has not met his material obligations under the terms of our engagement letter, and has rendered it unreasonably difficult for Tarlow & Berk to carry out the representation effectively. Our relationship with Mr. Brown has come to a point where Tarlow & Brown and I can no longer adequately defend or represent him.”

The case is ongoing.
