Chris Brown is selling t-shirts that include the phrase “this b!tch lyin'” less than a week after he was detained by Paris police on rape accusations.

The shirts, marketed as “The Paris Edition,” were featured on the Instagram page for Black Pyramid, Brown’s clothing line. The quote was accompanied by a picture of the Mona Lisa, with the shirts running $38 each.

“This b!tch lyin'” has become a sort of rallying cry for Brown in recent days. The 29-year-old rapper posted a picture of the phrase on his Instagram account soon after he was released by police.

“I WANNA MAKE IT PERFECTLY CLEAR…… THIS IS FALSE AND A WHOLE LOT OF CAP! [sic] NNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEERRRRRR!!!!!!” Brown’s Instagram caption read. “FOR MY DAUGHTER AND MY FAMILY THIS IS SO DISPRESPECTFUL AND IS AGAINST MY CHARACTER AND MORALS!!!!!”

He quickly deleted the post, but not before TheWrap grabbed a screenshot of it.

The woman who filed the complaint against Brown said she met the Grammy winner and his friends a week ago at club Le Crystal. After the overnight encounter, they all went to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel near the Concorde Plaza in central Paris, a Parisian official relayed to the Associated Press. The woman claimed Brown and two other men raped her inside his hotel room. French investigators did not file charges after bringing him in on aggravated rape and drug charges, according to CNN, although they’re still looking into the incident.

On Thursday, Brown filed a defamation suit against the woman. “The facts are totally challenged by Mr. Brown and are insufficient to prosecute,” Raphael Chiche, Brown’s Paris-based lawyer, told CNN.

In 2009, Brown pled guilty to felony assault against fellow singer Rihanna, who was his girlfriend at the time. Brown has been in trouble with the law numerous times since then.

In July, Brown was arrested on a felony battery charge stemming from an April 2017 incident in which he was accused of punching a man who took his picture without permission. Back in 2013, Brown and a bodyguard were arrested and charged with felony assault after an incident outside of a Washington D.C. hotel. That one was reduced to a misdemeanor.
