Trey Songz Sued, Woman Claims He Assaulted Her When She Asked For A Photo
The legal issues continue for Trey Songz (real name Tremaine Neverson). The 33-year-old singer is being sued for an incident that allegedly happened in 2017. A woman is suing for a medical expenses and other damages, claiming that Songz got violent when she and her cousin attempted to get a photo of him.
The woman says that she and her cousin were outside of a Philadelphia strip club called Vanity Grand Cabaret when they spotted Trey and tried to take a photo of him.
According to the woman suing, the singer didn’t want them to take a photo of him and physically assaulted her. She claims he grabbed and twisted her arm and wrist. She claims that episode resulted in her becoming depressed and seeking psychiatric treatment. Her cousin, who was with her at the time of the incident, sued last December.
For the past few years, Songz has been plagued with legal issues. In December 2016, Songz was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, and assaulting a police officer causing injury, following a performance at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit. The singer is alleged to have “began throwing objects after the venue cut his concert short due to an 11:30 pm curfew” and to have “struck an officer with his fist”.
On August 18, 2017, Songz pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 18 months of probation, and will be required to complete anger management classes and pay restitution for the incident. On March 19, 2018, Songz was arrested and charged with felony domestic violence after allegedly punching a woman at a Los Angeles party and was released on a $50,000 bail.
The felony domestic violence case has been rejected by the Los Angeles District Attorney because the singer’s attorney provided multiple witness statements to the Los Angeles Police Department contradicting the alleged victim’s claim that Songz beat her and gave her a concussion at a Hollywood Hills party for NBA All-Star Weekend.
On June 4, 2018, Songz was sued by a Detroit cop who says Songz punched him in the face with a closed fist. Trey ended up hurling heavy equipment off the stage and then jumped off the stage himself, picked up a mic stand, threw it and hit a photographer, who also sued Songz. Sgt. Avery arrested Songz, tried to take him into custody when he says Songz fought him and struck him in the face. The officer fell to the ground and hit his head on the concrete. He allegedly suffered visible bruising and swelling to his right temple, as well as a contusion to his left forehead.
