Trey Songz has been investigated in New York City and is facing assault charges after being accused of punching a woman at a bowling alley.
According to TMZa complaint was filed last month by an employee of the bowling alley who stated that the alleged assault took place in one of the venue’s bathrooms.
The unnamed accuser alleges that during the incident in question, Trey Songz (real name Tremaine Neverson) punched her repeatedly and pulled her hair. She was taken to a nearby hospital and treated for what NYPD officers described as visible minor injuries.
Sources state that the woman recognized Trey Songz and identified him by name when she spoke with authorities.
While the singer has yet to comment on the incident, his attorney Mitchell Schuster said the singer is not guilty and believes his client will be cleared of the charge.
“A source close to the investigation informs us that TS has been cooperating with authorities and expects that once all the evidence is reviewed, he will be exonerated,” Schuster said. TMZ. “This is another case where those involved try to blame the celebrity with hopes of gaining fame or fortune.”
Trey Songz has been subjected to a number of physical and sexual assaults over the past few years. However, a handful of the charges have been dismissed either by the victims themselves or by the judges presiding over the various cases.
In April was The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department closed a case where the singer was accused of sexually assaulting a woman while celebrating his birthday in Vegas in November 2021. The LVMPD stated that they would reopen the case in the event that new evidence is presented.
Weeks later, Megan Johnson filed a $5 million lawsuit against Trey Songz after he was caught on camera baring her breast while she posed for a picture. In a letter, her attorneys George Vrabeck and Ariel Mitchell accused Songz of sexual assault and battery with “a reckless disregard for her safety.”
Johnson was the fourth woman to come forward with allegations of sexual assault against the singer in just a few months. Former UNLV basketball player Dylan Gonzalez came forward in January claiming that Trey Songz raped her nine years ago.
A woman under the alias Jane Doe filed a complaint earlier this year claiming she initially had a “consensual” relationship with the R&B singer, but claimed Trey Songz became a “savage rapist” in March 2016. She claimed that “ The Bottoms Up” hitmaker anally raped her as she repeatedly asked him to stop. She demanded $20 million in damages.
Earlier this month, Trey Songz’s legal team intercepted the filing and had the civil case thrown out since the statute of limitations in California only lasts two years — so anything after March 2018 wouldn’t find the “On Call” singer liable. The alleged incident took place in 2016.
The case surrounding another Trey Songz accuser took an interesting turn in August when a woman who was friends with the accuser Jauhara Jefferiesclaimed she was offered a bribe to testify against the singer.
According to TMZMariah Thielen testified in a recent court hearing that she met with sexual assault accuser Jauhara Jefferies’ attorney, Ariel Mitchell, at a Miami bar in April 2021. She said Mitchell smelled of marijuana during the meeting and had a gun on him.
Thielen, who was with Jeffries the night of the alleged assault in 2017, said Mitchell offered to pay between $100,000 and $200,000 if she would lie and say she witnessed the singer sexually assaulting Jeffries.
Thielen also said Mitchell allegedly wanted her to claim she was assaulted as well, hoping to get a bigger settlement from Songz’s team.
