A new lawsuit has been filed in Los Angeles against Trey Songz. This is the third legal complaint of sexual assault in recent months that has been made against the singer, amidst other general accusations and rumors of abuse that have been made in the media by alleged victims.
Trey Times A Charm
Trey Songz “can’t help but wait” – or touch it seems – as he faces yet another sexual assault. This is the third allegation filed against the singer just weeks after former basketball star Dylan Gonzalez accused Songz of sexual assault.
The newest victim who filed the lawsuit is seeking $20 million in damages. She claims that she and Trey Songz had a casual and “occasionally sexual” relationship. She then alleges that things took a dark turn on March 24, 2016, when he raped her anally.
Court documents state that the accuser, “Jane Doe,” required and received emergency medical care immediately after the assault which she claims happened during a party in West Hills, California.
The plaintiff alleges that Trey Songz transformed into a “violent rapist” when he took her upstairs to a bedroom. She also asserts that she “screamed in pain” and “begged” him to stop, as court documents state.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ, “Trey Songz threw Plaintiff Jane Doe to the ground, ripped Plaintiff Jane Doe’s pants off, pinned Plaintiff Jane Doe down face first and forced Defendant Trey Songz’ penis into Plaintiff’s anus without Plaintiff Jane Doe’s consent. Plaintiff Jane Doe screamed in pain and begged Defendant Trey Songs to stop. Plaintiff Jane Doe tried to fight the defendant off her but was overpowered.”
Jane Doe claims that the rape was witnessed by an unidentified person who walked in on the act, but immediately departed, allowing the rape to continue. The plaintiff says she fled the house immediately after the assault and was taken by Uber to the Providence Joseph Medical Center Emergency Care Unit at midnight on March 25 where doctors told her she had “severe anal tearing that could require surgery” as a result of the attack.
The survivor claims in the court documents that she did not initially give Songz’s name to the police investigating the assault because she was both in shock and “fearing for her life.” She states she suffered from “severe emotional distress,” which she says has shown up as “fear, anxiety, humiliation, depression, and other physical and emotional injuries, and damages (both economic and non-economic).”
Trey Songz Fires Back
A representative for Trey Songz, denied the allegations to TMZ on Tuesday and accused Ariel Mitchell, Esq. – one of the attorneys representing the alleged victim – of witness tampering in a separate case. TMZ obtained court documents, where Songz’s attorney alleged that Mitchell was soliciting testimony from alleged sexual assault victims and promising them a “large payday” for lying about an assault incident by Trey Songz.
“It isn’t hard to see what’s happening here, and it is a shame for genuine victims of sexual assault. The allegations in this complaint are false. Trey looks forward to having the facts fully aired,” said Songz’s attorney.
Mitchell told Page Six that there is no witness tampering and that Songz lawyers are deflecting to take the heat off their client. “The allegation is without merit and is a desperate attempt to shift the narrative away from Trey Songz’s consistent pattern of predatory behavior. “Trey Songz has a sordid history of attacking women… I look forward to seeking justice for my clients, who have been assaulted by Trey Songz.”
Mitchell and case partner, George Vrabeck, gave a joint statement to TMZ saying that there are more allegations on the way.
Victims are coming forward every day. Just know you are not alone, and this behavior is unacceptable.
Changing Views on Trey Songz
Songz has a rather extensive history of allegations of sexual violence and abuse against women. As the allegations have come out, Trey Songz continues to lose his credibility within the R&B community.
Some have likened him to jailed R&B star, R. Kelly, whose singing style he is ironically accused of biting early on in his career.
Others have stated that for Songz to have this many accusers, there must be some truth to the allegations.
“Nobody gives a “fuck” when black women say something,” says actor/singer Keke Palmer, who intimated her own sexual intimidation accusation against Trey Songz. “I’m not going to try to tear no black man down…so if I say something I’m saying something for a reason.”
Fans of Songz accused the media of pushing narratives for clicks and the lawyers of making accusations to extort funds from the embattled singer.
