Per ESPN, his ex-girlfriend field a lawsuit in civil court detailing the incidents:
In the lawsuit, filed in Alameda County (California) Superior Court, Diorra Marzette-Sanders accuses Brown of slapping, punching and choking her on multiple occasions beginning in 2018. She said she has been “bruised, bloodied and battered” from the attacks and lived in fear of Brown.

Brown released a statement about the allegations on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon:
I am aware that my ex-girlfriend has filed a civil suit against me. I deny the claims. They are false. I believe in the court system where I will clear my name. I will not be making any further comment at this time.
