Facing the Heat
Following the string of celebrities going down for sexual assault, Trey Songz is taking a hit for allegedly physically assaulting a women named Andrea Buera. Buera came forward with her story earlier this month (March 13), saying that Songz hit her while they were at a party together.
Alongside her attorney, Lisa Bloom, Buera offered up a “tearful” recantment of her 2018 NBA All-Star weekend, spent with superstar Trey Songz. For the events that may or may not have transpired between the two, who have reportedly known each other for about three years, Songz has turned himself in, giving himself over to LAPD custody to face felony domestic violence charges.
According to Buera, the “Slow Motion” singer became upset after spotting her talking to another guy at a Hollywood Hills party her and Songz attended together. She said he subsequently hit her in the face as if he were hitting a man, to the point that she ended up at a hospital with a concussion. Buera also claimed Songz choked her and prevented her from calling an Uber by throwing both of her cell phones down a hill.
Afterwards, Buera — whose injuries were reportedly minor — filed a restraining order against the star and hired the infamous Lisa Bloom, going public with her story nearly a month after it took place. Bloom and Buera called for justice, alongside accusing Songz of hiring an investigator to follow and collect intel on Buera’s family.
In response, Songz surrendered to Los Aneleges authorities around 6 AM this morning (March 19). After posting a $50k bond, he was released around 8 AM.
The singer stayed quiet at first. According to him, he was following his management and lawyers’ advice. However, before Songz headed to the station, he offered a statement to his fans on a Twitter.
“For weeks my lawyers & Mgmt have asked me not to comment on this and I initially agreed but this morning I feel that my fam, the women that raised me, my friends & fans especially the youth need to hear from me,” he posted. “I am being lied on and falsely accused for someone’s personal gain.”
Meanwhile, Buera is claiming that several people watched as she was violently assualted by Songz. So, Buera is calling for witnesses to come forward with their accounts. (She is also asking for Songz to apologize for his behavior.) On the other hand, Songz’ camp says there are witnesses who saw the opposite.
This isn’t the first time Songz has been labeled a violent person. In December of last year, a Philadelphia Trigga lover purchased VIP tickets to meet him at a strip club called the Vanity Grand Cabaret. According to TMZ, the woman said that Songz was hostile toward his fans and disrespectful to club patrons throughout the entire night.
When the woman approached Songz outside the club to take a photo, she says that Songz attacked her. In the lawsuit, she claims that Songz smacked her phone into her face and broke her glasses. She ended up suing both Songz and the venue for $50,000. She said that VGC created a risky situation by creating the event because they knew Songz tended “toward violence and negative interaction with the public.”
