Trey Songz accused of s.e.x.ually assaulting 2 women

Trey Songz is facing new allegations of sexual assault. The “Bottoms Up” singer, real name Tremaine Neverson, is the subject of a new complaint in which two women allege they woke up the morning after a 2015 California house party he threw to find the R&B star sexually assaulting them by performing “heinous” non-consensual sexual acts.

In the 17-page complaint, obtained by PEOPLE, “Jane Doe A and Jane Doe B” accuse Songz of forcing himself on them after they were “coercively pressed to drink from unsealed liquor bottles, which were curiously full” the night before.

“Trey Songz, cloaked in his celebrity status, believed he could act with impunity. He is wrong,” the complaint reads. “Jane Doe A and Jane Doe B came to his Bell Canyon, California residence on August 2, 2015, expecting a celebration. Instead, they were subjected to acts so heinous, so contrary to basic human decency, that they defy comprehension.”

In a statement to both TMZ and Rolling Stone, Songz’s attorney Michael Freedman called the complaint “yet another example of nearly decade-old allegations being repurposed to take advantage of California’s constitutionally questionable new look-back window.”

“We look forward to vindicating Trey on the merits in court,” he wrote.

A representative for Songz did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment on Saturday.

These are not the first sexual assault allegations Songz has faced. He was accused in February in a $20 million lawsuit of raping a woman at a 2016 party and leaving her with “brutal” injuries (allegations that his rep previously told TMZ were “false”); denied a sexual misconduct allegation in 2020 after a woman claimed he took her phone and purse and wouldn’t let her leave a hotel room; and was cleared in April of a sexual assault investigation in Las Vegas. Additionally, Keke Palmer alleged in 2017 that Songz used “sexual intimidation” on her in order for her to appear in a music video.

As for the new allegations, the two women claim Songz invited them to a house party in August 2015, where they were asked to “relinquish their mobile devices.” At the party, which they alleged was ” noticeably female-centric,” the filing claims Songz had “aggressive outbursts over trivial matters” and that he and his “male associates did not drink alcohol,” despite the women in attendance facing “intense intimidation” if they declined.

The complaint alleges that Songz’s “hostility peaked” when the women refused to take part in a “twerking contest” for a prize, and “unleashed a torrent of verbal abuse, hurling bottles at select women and demanding, with a threatening edge, that they dance because he ordered them to dance.”

After one of the plaintiffs allegedly had her phone taken away by a security guard, the women felt an “overwhelming and disproportionate sense of intoxication” following their drinking of a “modest” amount of alcohol. “This alarming vulnerability led Plaintiffs to believe Defendant Songz surreptitiously drugged them, most likely contained in the unsealed bottles of alcohol served to them,” the filing reads.

Songz is then accused of escorting the women upstairs to a room within the home, before one of the women woke up unclothed the next morning with Songz “engaging in non-consensual oral sex upon her” despite her resisting. The other plaintiff woke to Songz “biting her breast and forcing his fingers into her vagina,” per the complaint. The women also claim that Songz yelled at them after they refused to join him in a shower, “You are little f—ing girls; get the f— out of my house,” the filing reads.

“The emotional and personal toll on the Plaintiffs has been and continues to be immense,” the complaint reads. “Through this action, we will shed light on their ordeal, ensure such acts are never repeated, and secure justice for two lives forever altered. This is not just a lawsuit; it is a reckoning.”
