Trey Songz is currently fighting to have a $10 million lawsuit dropped, which accuses him of sexually assaulting a woman during a 2013 pool party.
The lawsuit was initiated in June of this year, with the plaintiff, identified as Jane Doe, alleging that the “Bottoms Up” singer exposed her breasts at a pool gathering held at a Connecticut casino in 2013. According to documents obtained by Radar Online on September 7, Songz and his legal team are arguing that the case has exceeded the statute of limitations, which is typically set at three years.
As of now, a judge has not yet made a decision regarding the motion to dismiss.
Previously, Rolling Stone reported that the woman, who is using the Jane Doe pseudonym to protect her identity, claimed that the alleged assault occurred in August 2013 at the Foxwoods Resort in Connecticut.
The lawsuit is seeking $10 million in damages for sexual battery and assault. These allegations include assertions that Trey Songz forcibly grabbed and exposed the woman’s breast during the pool party when she simply tried to take a picture with the singer.
A video captured by a friend of the accuser, subsequently sent to TMZ, purportedly shows Trey Songz (real name Tremaine Neverson) grabbing the woman’s bathing suit top, dropping it, and exposing her breast.
According to court documents quoted by Rolling Stone, Songz followed the alleged assault with a demeaning chant: “Titty in The Open … Titty in The Open.”
Jane Doe also included Kevin Liles, Atlantic Records, and Trey Songz’s production company in the lawsuit, asserting that they were negligent in supervising their client and thus bear responsibility for his actions.
The accuser’s attorney, George Vrabeck, conveyed to Rolling Stone, “Entities such as Atlantic Records and key executives like Kevin Liles must reassess their obligations toward ensuring the safety and dignity of everyone at any event associated with their artists. My client demands transparency, accountability, and a prioritization of safety over profits.”
