Trey Songz’s legal troubles take a turn as a $10 million sexual assault suit is dismissed for failure to respond.
The filing occurred after the defendant, identified as “Jane Doe” in the documents, failed to respond to the “Bottoms Up” singer’s motion to dismiss on time. It is unclear whether the alleged victim will be able to re-file her lawsuit, or if it was dismissed with prejudice.
Jane Doe filed the lawsuit in June last year, alleging Trey Songz exposed her breasts at a pool party at a Connecticut casino in 2013.
According to documents obtained by Radar Online in September, Songz and his legal team claimed the case was well past the three-year statute of limitations.
The woman claimed that the alleged assault occurred in August 2013 at the Foxwoods Resort in Connecticut.
The lawsuit sought $10 million for sexual battery and assault, alleging that Trey Songz grabbed and exposed her breast at a pool party after she attempted to take a picture with him.
In a video taken by the accuser’s friend and later shared with TMZ, the singer (real name Tremaine Neverson) can be seen grabbing and dropping the accuser’s bathing suit top, exposing her breasts.
According to court documents, Trey Songz used a derogatory chant, ‘Titty in the Open,’ to further humiliate the woman.
Jane Doe also sued Kevin Liles, Atlantic Records, and Trey Songz’s production company, alleging that they were “negligent in their supervision of their client” and thus liable for his actions.
The accuser’s lawyer, George Vrabeck, told Rolling Stone that “entities such as Atlantic Records and key executives like Kevin Liles must reassess their obligations to ensure the safety and dignity of everyone at any event associated with their artists.”
“My client expects accountability, transparency, and a focus on safety over profit.”
It is worth noting, however, that Jane Doe reportedly demanded $5 million from Songz to make the case “go away,” an offer he later turned down.
Trey Songz has previously faced a sexual assault suit. A civil case filed against the “Mr. Steal Your Girl” singer for alleged rape in 2016 was dismissed in November 2022 due to the statute of limitations.
A woman using the alias Jane Doe filed the complaint earlier this year, claiming she had a “consensual” relationship with the R&B singer before Trey Songz became a “savage rapist” in March of 2016.
She claimed TS anally raped her after she repeatedly told him to stop and demanded $20 million in restitution.
Trey’s legal team intercepted the filing and had the civil suit dismissed because the statute of limitations in California is only two years—anything after March 2018 would not hold Trey Songz liable.
