R&B singer Trey Songz is making headlines this weekend with reports claiming he recently got arrested in New York for assaulting an unnamed woman with money.
Details on the late summer incident bubbled online Saturday (December 15).
Throwing dollar bills at a woman (aka MAKING IT RAIN!!!) seems harmless, but it got Trey Songz arrested for assault in New York recently … TMZ has learned. Songz (real name Tremaine Neverson) had an album release party on August 21 at a gentleman’s club in Queens. According to police, somewhere between 4:00 and 4:15 AM on the 22nd, Trey became involved in an altercation inside the club. Cops described the incident this way in the criminal complaint: “Tremaine Neverson, did throw a sum of United States currency at the complainant and said sum of United States currency struck the complainant’s left eye causing substantial pain to her left eye.” (TMZ)
The mega singer is reportedly due back in court to handle the matter this winter.
It is unclear if the woman in question was … how do we say this nicely … a stripper. Songz was not arrested that night, but rather a month later for misdemeanor assault. Songz had a court date in NY on November 1 and an order of protection was issued. He is due back in court in February. We reached out to a rep for Songz, but have yet to hear back. (TMZ)
Songz’s alleged assault came just days before his Chapter V solo album struck gold on the album sales chart.
Leading the way this week is R&B singer Trey Songz’s Chapter V at No. 1. According to Nielsen SoundScan, the soulful singer’s new LP has sold 135,000 after seven days in stores. (SOHH Sales Wrap)
It also came a couple days after fellow crooner Keri Hilson denied getting knocked up by Songz.
“I am NOT pregnant! *runs to the gym* why the f*ck they sayin that? Rumors people, rumors. D*mn! Let a sista live *wink*,” she tweeted August 23rd. (Keri Hilson’s Twitter)
