He might have a quick Trigga
A Trey Songz superfan is suing the singer after he allegedly smacked her phone into her face.
A Philadelphia Trigga lover purchased VIP tickets to meet him at a strip club called the Vanity Grand Cabaret. Apparently Songz was far removed from the ladies man persona he’s cultivated in the business. 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’s suing both Songz and the venue for $50,000. She says that VGC created a risky situation by creating the event because they knew Songz tended “toward violence and negative interaction with the public.”
Songz recently pleaded guilty to two counts of disturbing the peace after he flew into a fit of rage at a Detroit show. The charges came after his show was cut short by a venue who cut his mic. The star broke equipment onstage, threw debris around the venue, and eventually resisted arrest.
As part of his guilty plea, the charges that came from him fighting Detroit Police who attempted to remove him were dropped. Trey got 18 months probation and was ordered to attend anger management classes.
Songz isn’t the first star to get caught up for reacting negatively to fans at an event. Back in 2016, Kevin Gates got six months for kicking a fan who grabbed his shorts during a Florida club set in the face.
While no lawsuit or jail time has come of it yet, XXXTentacion made headlines when he repeatedly beat a fan with his microphone during his set at Rolling Loud. X claims it was self-defense.
“I’m just letting everyone know ahead of time that I punched someone in their face today because I was assaulted while I was performing,” X later said on Instagram. “So before anybody sees the video and makes an assumption, I’m gonna beat everyone to it and let everyone know. Yo, I ended up punching someone because they punched me in my sh-t.”
Of course, you have to wonder if it’s an X problem and not just an incidental thing. After all, he did punch a fan in the face this summer during a similar situation. That saying about meeting a–holes all day probably holds true here.
On the less intentional side of things, Miguel was sued for an unintentional leg drop at the Billboard Music Awards in 2013 that went viral.The fan who sued said Miguel’s failed leap drove her head into the catwalk and injured her pretty severely. The lawsuit was the second to come out of his botched performance of “Adorn.”
Back on the Trey Songz front ― things don’t look good. Getting sued for smacking a woman while you’re still on probation for a ragey freakout can’t end well. We’re not saying that this woman will win her lawsuit, but maybe Songz should try keep his cool… at least until he’s off probation.
What do you think? Does Trigga have issues? Is Trey in trouble? Are those court-mandated anger management classes not sinking in and will he soon lose his status as the less terrible Chris Brown? Sound off in the comments and be sure to SHARE this article.
