Trey Songz, born Tremaine Neverson, is once again under the microscope, facing a recent lawsuit involving an incident at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. Tyrelle Dunn, hailing from Maryland, has accused the R&B singer and his security team of assault following an incident in which Dunn tried to assist his wife.
She reportedly screamed for help from a hotel room where she was with Neverson, alleging being detained against her will. This isn't the first run-in with the law for the singer. While he's best known for early 2010s Billboard hits like "Say Aah" and "Bottoms Up", Songz has been entangled in several legal battles over the years.
Allegations range from physical to sexual assault, with multiple instances reported from various parts of the country.
Dunn's Disturbing Vegas Encounter
Dunn's complaint traces back to November 28, 2021, when his wife was led by security to a room under the guise of meeting Trey Songz.
What transpired in the room led Dunn's wife to allegedly scream for help, prompting her husband to intervene. This intervention, the complaint suggests, resulted in Dunn facing physical assault. This recent incident has caught the attention of the media, especially since a worker from The Cosmopolitan made several 911 calls concerning the situation.
From these calls, a distressing image emerges, one where security is hesitant to enter the room because of potential dangers, and where the severity of Dunn's injuries is palpable. The Las Vegas Metro Police Department investigated the allegations but announced in March 2022 that Songz wouldn't face any charges.
However, should fresh evidence emerge, they've reserved the right to revisit the case. The suit doesn't just target Trey Songz and his security; The Cosmopolitan itself is named for negligence. Moreover, accusations extend to negligent hiring, training, and retention against all parties involved.
Songz's history of allegations dates back years. From accusations in New York to a lawsuit in Connecticut involving inappropriate behavior at a public event, and even a 2020 incident in Miami, Songz's legal woes are extensive. Notably, an incident in 2016 saw him charged with assault at a Detroit concert.
