Trey Songz is looking to get a $10 million lawsuit dismissed that accuses him of sexually assaulting a woman at a 2013 pool party.
The suit was filed in June of this year, with a Jane Doe alleging the “Bottoms Up” singer exposed her breasts at a pool party at a Connecticut casino in 2013. In documents obtained by Radar Online on Thursday (September 7), Songz and his legal team argued that the case was way past the statute of limitations of three years.
As of this writing, a judge has yet to rule on the motion to dismiss.
Rolling Stone previously reported that the woman — who is using the Jane Doe pseudonym to protect her privacy — claimed the alleged assault happened in August 2013 at the Foxwoods Resort in Connecticut.
The lawsuit is demanding $10 million for sexual battery and assault, which includes claims that Trey Songz allegedly grabbed and exposed her breast at the pool party after she merely tried to get a picture with the singer.
In a video captured by a friend of the accuser — who subsequently sent the video to TMZ — the singer (real name Tremaine Neverson) can be seen grabbing the accuser’s bathing suit top, dropping it, and exposing her breast.
“In what appeared to be an attempt to further terrify and humiliate [the woman], [Trey Songz] followed the assault with a degrading chant, ‘Titty in The Open … Titty in The Open,’” read the court documents, according to Rolling Stone.
Jane Doe also named Kevin Liles, Atlantic Records, and Trey Songz’s production company in the lawsuit, claiming that they were “negligent in their supervision of their client” and thus responsible for his actions.
“Entities such as Atlantic Records and key executives like Kevin Liles must reassess their obligations toward ensuring the safety and dignity of everyone at any event associated with their artists,” the accuser’s attorney, George Vrabeck, told Rolling Stone. “My client demands transparency, accountability, and a prioritization of safety over profits.”
However, it’s worth noting that Jane Doe reportedly demanded $5 million from Songz to make the case “go away” — an offer which he subsequently refused.
This isn’t the first time that Trey Songz has found himself on the receiving end of a sexual assault lawsuit. Back in November 2022, a rape civil case filed against the “Mr. Steal Your Girl” singer for an alleged rape he committed in 2016 was dropped after the statute of limitations ran out.
A woman under the alias of Jane Doe filed the complaint earlier this year claiming she initially had a “consensual” relationship with the R&B singer but claimed that Trey Songz became a “savage rapist” in March 2016. She alleged that TS anally raped her when she told him repeatedly to stop and was seeking $20 million in damages.
Trey’s legal team intercepted the filing and had the civil suit thrown out since the statute of limitations in California only lasts two years — so anything after March 2018 wouldn’t find Trey Songz liable.
In April 2022, Trey Songz was cleared of the sexual assault allegations stemming from an incident in a Las Vegas hotel in November 2021.
