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.”
