Trey Songz has been arrested by the Los Angeles Police Department to face a felony domestic violence charge.
TMZ reports that Trey turned himself in, with his attorney Shawn Holley, for an alleged incident involving a woman he was out with in L.A. last month February during NBA All-Star weekend.
Trey Songz is accused of brutally beating Andrea Buera at a Hollywood Hills party where she claims he was upset because she was talking to another man.
Los Angeles Times reports that Buera’s lawyer said in a statement:
“Trey called her names, choked her and repeatedly punched her in the face. Several people were present and no one helped her”
The statement continued:
“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.”
Sources told TMZ at the time that following the argument, Andrea Buera then left the party to seek medical attention for minor injuries before filing a report with police.
Trey (whose real name is Tremaine Aldon Neverson) was booked at 6 AM today, and released shortly after 8 AM. He posted a $50,000 bond, TMZ reports.
Right around the time he surrendered for booking, Songz tweeted,
“I am being lied on and falsely accused for someone’s personal gain.”
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. I am being lied on and falsely accused for someone’s personal gain.
I won’t be speaking too much more on this but would like to thank you for all the prayers and support. 🙏🏾❤💪🏾
