Trey Songz has been hit with a $10 million sexual assault lawsuit stemming from an incident with a woman identified only as “Jane Doe.”
According to The Blast, the woman claims Songz assaulted her in a Miami nightclub during a New Year’s Eve bash held in 2018.
In court documents, the woman claimed that Songz allegedly forced “his hand under her dress without her consent,” and attempted to “insert his fingers into Jane Doe’s vagina without her consent or permission.” The alleged incident occurred while they were partying at a VIP table at Miami’s E11even Nightclub. The suit also claimed Songz and the woman were at a party at Diddy’s house before the singer asked her to join him at E11even.
Shortly after that incident, the woman discovered another alleged accuser in the nightclub who claimed to have had a similar encounter with Songz earlier that night. The suit alleges that the second woman confided in Jane Doe, that Songz “put his hands down her pants and had placed his fingers into her buttocks without her consent.”
Doe claims Songz “intentionally created an offer of bodily injury,” thus creating a “well-founded fear of imminent peril.” She is suing for assault, battery, negligence, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.”
This is not the first time Songz has been accused of sexual misconduct. The 35-year-old whose real name is Tremaine Neverson was previously sued for physical assault by a separate accuser, Andrea Buera.
In that incident, Buera claimed Songz attacked her at an NBA All-Star Weekend party, for talking to another man. Songz said that he acted in self-defense and requested that the lawsuit be dismissed. In legal documents, Songz’s lawyer noted that “any force he used was only the amount reasonably necessary to protect himself,” and ultimately, no criminal charges were filed due to lack of evidence.
In 2017, Keke Palmer accused the R & B Singer of “sexual intimidation,” claiming he attempted to coax her into appearing in a music video. Songz released a statement in response to Palmer’s allegations that read in part, “I cannot devote my life to responding to, or clearing up every side of every story you hear about me, when would I actually live? I know my character, I know my truth, I know my heart. God does too.”
