Trey Songz was named in a new civil lawsuit accused him of assaulting a young woman at a Miami nightclub in the early hours of New Year’s Day 2018.
The lawsuit is a rebuttal to a $10 million civil complaint that was brought against Songz, real name Tremaine Neverson, in January 2020. Although court papers say the reached an agreement earlier this year, a judge unexpectedly dismissed the lawsuit under an earlier petition. , the victim’s attorney told The Daily Beast.
The new lawsuit filed in Miami Dade Circuit Court against Songz also names Diddy and popular nightclub E11EVEN as defendants, according to court papers obtained by The Daily Beast.
The woman, Jahuara Jeffries, had previously sued Songz under the pseudonym Jane Doe. But Jeffries, in his late twenties, is now ready to use her real name, her attorney, Ariel Mitchell, told The Daily Beast.
“She didn’t want to hide behind Jane Doe, she didn’t want to be ashamed of what happened to her,” Mitchell said.
Jeffries claims she met Songz at a New Year’s Eve party held at Diddy’s mansion in Miami before they continued to spend the night at E11EVEN. While dancing on a couch at the club, Jeffries, who was wearing a high slit dress, claimed that she felt “fingers being inserted into her vagina”.
When she turned around, she is said to have seen Songz drunkenly “pulling his hand off her ass”.
The lawsuit also claims that after the alleged assault, another woman in the VIP area confided in Jeffries that Songz had done something similar shortly before.
Jeffries is seeking $20 million in damages. The Daily Beast has reached out to Songz for comment.
This is the second time this month Songz’s name has appeared in the newspapers. Two weeks ago, Las Vegas police confirmed they were investigating allegations of sexual assault against the R&B singer. After a performance at Drai’s Nightclub on his birthday, the 37-year-old man allegedly brought a group of women back to his hotel room at The Cosmopolitan, where the alleged assault took place. (Songz denies any wrongdoing.)
Officials would not release any further details when contacted by The Daily Beast on Tuesday, but confirmed that an investigation is ongoing.
