According to court documents reviewed by TMZ, the woman identified in the lawsuit as Jane Doe alleged that the 37-year-old music artist forced her to have anal sex against her consent.
A spokesperson for Songz told the publication on Tuesday evening that “the allegations in this complaint are false” and that Songz “looks forward to full disclosure.”
Latest: Trey Songz, 37, was charged with sexual assault in a 2016 party incident as part of a $20 million lawsuit. The singer was photographed last year in Los Angeles.
The woman said that prior to the incident on March 24, 2016, she had a consensual sexual relationship with an R&B artist whose full name is Tremaine Aldon Neverson. She said they were at a house party in Los Angeles where Songz invited her when they went upstairs for what she thought would be a consensual meeting.
The Virginia-born artist repeatedly molested the woman if he could “get that ass” as they walked up the stairs of the house, the woman said in court documents, adding that she told him “no” and stopped asking.
The woman testified in court that Songz acted like a “wild rapist” as soon as they reached the bedroom when he threw her on the floor, took off her pants, pressed her body face down and penetrated her anus as she screamed and begged him . him to stop what he was doing.
The woman told the court that Songz physically overpowered her when she tried to stop him. Another man quickly entered and left the room, the woman told the court, and Songz proceeded to rape her.
The R&B artist, whose full name is Tremaine Aldon Neverson, was spotted performing in Los Angeles last year.
Songz was seen on stage in Las Vegas in September 2021.
She told the court that after the traumatic incident, she packed her clothes and left the premises to take an Uber.
The woman said in court papers that the Uber driver noticed she was in distress as she got into the car and took her to a nearby hospital, where health officials conducted a sexual assault examination that revealed “severe anal tears that may require surgical intervention.” ‘
Police were called, but the woman said she did not say that Songz was her attacker because she was “in shock and feared for her life,” the woman said in court documents.
The woman is represented by lawyers Ariel Mitchell and George Vrabek, who are involved in two other cases in Miami and Nevada, in which Songz is accused of sexual harassment.
Mitchell denied claims by Songz’s legal team that she tried to bribe a witness in the Florida case, according to TMZ, which reported that the singer’s lawyers hoped to close the Miami case due to the witness’ allegations of tampering.
In the Miami case, according to legal documents reviewed by the publication, a woman who identified herself as Jauhara Jeffries alleged that Songz stuck his finger inside her vagina without her consent as she danced on the couch at the E11VEN nightclub on New Year’s Eve. 2017.
Songz’s attorney, Jeffrey Neiman, told the court that a witness (who was not named) testified that Songz did not do what he was accused of doing in the Miami incident; and that Mitchell unsuccessfully tried to recruit her as a co-plaintiff against Songz and change her version of events with the possibility of a $100,000 to $200,000 settlement.
Mitchell told the publication on Tuesday in response that she and Vrabek “will not be stopped by bullying or intimidation tactics and will continue our pursuit of justice for the victims of Trey Songz’s sexual abuse.”
The artist’s lawyers accused the lawyer representing the accusers of falsifying witnesses.
The R&B artist is accused of sexually harassing women in three separate cases. He was photographed in Atlanta in 2019.
Mitchell, who also represents former UNLV basketball player Dylan Gonzalez in the Las Vegas sexual assault case against Songz, told the publication that the accusations brought by Songz’s legal team were “a desperate attempt to shift the narrative away from his heinous and egregious behavior.” .’
Mitchell told the publication that Songz’s attorneys initially filed the lawsuits in May 2021 “with the Florida Bar, and the bar took NO ACTION due to inconsistent testimony and lack of evidence.”
“This is nothing more than a mockery and an attempt to silence the lawyer and the many victims who have been attacked by the defendant Songz and will vigorously defend themselves in court. In the future, I will be exonerated, as was the case when this accusation was previously made by the former lawyer of the defendant Songz.
Mitchell told TMZ that Songz and his legal team are “dangerously close to the line of a defamation suit if they continue their knowingly false, defamatory and libelous statements against” her.
A spokesman for Songz spoke about the latest lawsuit and allegations of witness tampering: “Earlier today, the lawyer who drafted this lawsuit was credibly accused of trying to pay a woman to falsely accuse Trey.
“A few hours later, the same lawyer filed a lawsuit on behalf of an anonymous client. It’s not hard to understand what’s going on here, and it’s a disgrace for real victims of sexual assault.”
