Last week, singer Trey Songz turned himself in on charges of suspicion of domestic violence after being accused of punching and choking a woman at a party in the Hollywood Hills. The 33-year old, born Tremaine Neverson, would be released on $50,000 bond and would soon take to social media to assert his innocence in the case, thanking fans for the “prayers and support.”
For weeks my lawyers & Mgmt have asked me not to comment on this and I initially agreed but this morning I feel that my fam, the women that raised me, my friends & fans especially the youth need to hear from me. I am being lied on and falsely accused for someone’s personal gain
Well, it looks like 50 Cent is standing with Trey on this one as he recently took to his Instagram account to chime in on the case, expressing his belief that the singer’s accuser, Andrea Buera, is making false accusations in order to come up on a check.
“This stripper joint Andrea got Lisa bloom talking bout Trey hit her, everybody know he ain’t hit her this a money play ?smh any thing to get the Bag,” he wrote in a caption. He’d follow it up with another screenshot of Buera with lawyer Lisa Bloom, writing out “what the fuck is going on man, ?♂️smh LOL. They dead serious about getting this bag.”
According to Buera, Trey Songz violently attacked her at a party during NBA All-Star weekend because they previously dated, and he wasn’t happy with the fact that she was talking to one of his friends.
“I was attending an after party when Trey began yelling at me, choking me, punching me, and ultimately he knocked me to the ground,” Andrea Buera told reporters last week during a news conference while accompanied by Bloom. “While I was on the ground, he continued punching me and he did not stop until his security guard pulled him off of me,” she added.
“I tried defending myself by hitting his hand off of my neck, but when I got out of the choke hold, he then started punching me in the face … I was able to get away from him and began circling a car in the garage screaming and crying while others just watched and spread out.”
A petition filed on March 6th granted Buera a temporary restraining order against the performer. March 27th will mark the date that Buera and Bloom’s team tries to get a permanent order of protection from against Trey Songz.
