Looks like singer Trey Songz is back in the hot seat for assault. A woman is accusing Trey of “punching and choking” her during an altercation at a home in Los Angeles over the weekend, according to her attorney. The victim, who has not been identified, claims that she was attacked early Saturday morning at a home that was rented out for the weekend by the singer in Hollywood Hills, according to a statement issued by attorney Lisa Bloom. Lisa Bloom stated that Trey Songz whose real name is Tremaine Neverson and said woman have been “friends for years”, and the singer became enraged when the victim began talking to one of his friends.
“He called her names, choked her and repeatedly punched her in the face. Several people were present and no one helped her. When she took out her phone to call an Uber to get out of there, he threw her phone off a cliff to prevent her from leaving. She took out a second phone and he threw that off the cliff as well.”
Trey Songz has yet to respond to any of these accusations but he did tweet “This too shall pass,” on Wednesday morning. It has been confirmed by a Los Angeles Police Department spokeswoman that detectives are in fact investigating the domestic violence incident involving the singer over the weekend in the Hollywood Hills.
If you remember back in 2016, the singer was charged with aggravated assault and assaulting a police officer in Detroit after an incident during a performance at Joe Louis Arena. He pleaded guilty to two counts of disturbing the peace and was sentenced to 18 months’ probation.
