Trey Songz Accused Of Sexual Assault In $10 Million Lawsuit

The accuser claims Songz assaulted her while they were partying at a nightclub.

Trey Songz has been hit with a $10 million sexual assault lawsuit. A woman identified only as “Jane Doe,” claims Songz assaulted her in a Miami nightclub during New Year’s Eve bash in 2018, The Blast reported on Friday (Jan. 3).

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,” court documents state. The alleged incident occurred while they were at a VIP table at Miami’s E11even Nightclub. The suit claims Songz and the woman were at a party at Diddy’s house before the singer asked her to join him at E11even.

Shortly thereafter, 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.”

The Jane Doe accuser 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.”

The 35-year-old crooner, whose birth name Tremaine Neverson, was previously sued for physical assault by a separate accuser, Andrea Buera. 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.” No criminal charges were filed due to lack of evidence. Buera eventually dropped the suit without prejudice, which means it can't be filed again.

In 2017, KeKe Palmer accused Songz of “sexual intimidation,” for attempting to coax her into appearing in a music video. Songz released a statement in response to Palmer's claims 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.”

Songz has yet to publicly respond to allegations in the latest lawsuit, but he doesn’t appear to be affected by the reports. Hours after the story broke, the Virginia native posted a photo on Instagram on Friday captioned, “Blessed. Stressed Less.”

Tory Lanez Sued For Alleged Attack In Miami Nightclub

Tory Lanez is facing legal trouble over an alleged altercation that went down inside Miami’s LIV nightclub last year. Christopher “Prince” Harty, an up-and-coming artist and Miami promoter who appeared on Love & Hip-Hop: Miami claims that Lanez attacked him last November.

The onetime reality star alleges that Lanez, along with his entourage and security team, punched and attacked him in the nightclub. According to reports, Prince claims to have suffered blunt force trauma to his head, neck, and chest, in addition to contusions, bruises and anxiety, as a result of the incident. He is suing for unspecified damages.

“They backed me into a corner, and once I was there, they started stomping on me, jumping me,” he recalled to NBC Miami.

He believes that the friction stemmed from an Instagram post about music. “They felt that I was insinuating that they stole the record from me, and I was just like, no, I would never do that, that was never my intention. I had no issue with him at all.”

A portion of the incident was captured on cellphone video. Prince stated that he knew Lanez prior to the run-in, and helped get him into clubs before.

His attorney, Marwan Porter of Porter Law Firm, called the violent incident “a chronic problem” with Lanez who is accused of shooting Megan Thee Stallion in July. The 28-year-old recording artist has yet to publicly address either incident.

Cardi B Opens Up About Filing For Divorce From Offset

Cardi B took to Instagram Live on Friday (Sept. 18) to air out a few things about filing for divorce from Offset.

The Bronx rapper made it clear that she didn’t file for divorce as a publicity stunt to promote her upcoming album. “I’m not doing it for clout and on top of that I don’t need stunts to sell music,” she said. “I’m not [trying to] brag but don’t ever say I’m doing anything for clout. My first album is three-times platinum and I didn’t need no stunts to do that. My [“Wap”] single is no. 1 worldwide why would I need stunts to sell music? I don’t need stunts — [especially] when it comes to family — to sell anything, so don’t play yourself.”

As for the reason for the divorce filing, the estranged couple simply grew apart. “Nothing crazy out of this world happened, sometimes people really do grow apart. I been with this man for four years. I have a kid with this man, I have a household with this man…sometimes you’re just tired of the arguments and the build up. You get tired sometimes and before something happens, you leave.”

“I just wanna' be a free bird,” Cardi said after questioning whether people secretly want infidelity to be the reason for the split.

“I am the f**king clout,” she added. “I never needed anything. I never needed no stunts to sell sh*t.Why would I need anything to sell my next album?”

Speaking of the new album, Cardi has been indecisive about choosing her next single because “WAP” did so well. “That means that my second single has to be even better.”

Towards the end of her venting session, Cardi reiterated that she’s focusing on her work, and revealed that she's starting new business for her daughter Kulture.
