Singer Trey Songz Under Investigation For Alleged Sexual Assault At His Birthday
Singer Trey Songz, whose legal name is Tremaine Aldon Neverson, is being investigated for an incident that occurred at a Las Vegas hotel on his birthday.
R&B artist Trey Songz is under investigation for sexual assault, over an alleged incident that occurred on his birthday.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department confirmed to Oxygen.com that they received a report about an alleged sexual assault at a hotel on the 3700 block of South Las Vegas Boulevard "involving" the singer. TMZ had previously reported the hotel at which the alleged assault took place was the Cosmopolitan Law Vegas; its address corresponds with the LVMPD statement.
Another statement obtained by the Associated Press that sex crimes detectives have received a complaint about a Sunday incident at a hotel on the Las Vegas Strip involving the singer and an unnamed actor.
Sunday marked Songz's 37th birthday, whose legal name is Tremaine Aldon Neverson. On Saturday night, he performed at Drai's Nightclub, in a concert listed as his "Official Birthday Celebration." Drai's sits on the 3500 block of South Las Vegas Boulevard, colloquially known as the Strip.
He has not been arrested and is LVMPD told Oxygen.com that he is cooperating with investigators. The statement does not indicate what time on Sunday the report was made.
This incident is not the “Back Home” singer’s first brush with the law or sex crime accusations. He was arrested in January in Kansas City, Missouri after allegedly fighting with police officers at a National Football League game over coronavirus protocols, NBC News reported. Criminal charges have not been filed against him regarding that incident.
In 2018, he was arrested for allegedly hitting and choking a woman at a party but he was not charged, Page Six reported. He claimed that the woman made up the scenario for personal gain.
That same year, the singer was sued in federal court for allegedly punching a Detroit cop in 2016 prior following a performance, giving the officer a "career-ending brain injury,” the Detroit Metro Times reported. Songz was initially charged in the incident with felony assault of a police officer and misdemeanor aggravated assault (for also allegedly injuring a photographer). He ultimately pleaded guilty in 2017 to two reduced counts of disturbing the peace, and was sentenced to probation and anger-management classes.
In 2017, actor Keke Palmer accused the singer of “sexual intimidation” in an Instagram post, E! News reported at the time. She claims that he secretly recorded her and then included the recording in his music video for “Pick Up the Phone.”
