Songz (real name Tremaine Neverson) had an album release party on August 21 at a gentleman’s club in Queens. According to police, somewhere between 4:00 and 4:15 AM on the 22nd, Trey became involved in an altercation inside the club.
Cops described the incident this way in the criminal complaint: “Tremaine Neverson, did throw a sum of United States currency at the complainant and said sum of United States currency struck the complainant’s left eye causing substantial pain to her left eye.”
It is unclear if the woman in question was … how do we say this nicely … a stripper.
Songz was not arrested that night, but rather a month later for misdemeanor assault. Songz had a court date in NY on November 1 and an order of protection was issued. He is due back in court in February.
How Songz’ camp managed to keep this a secret is anyone’s guess.
The real question, though, is will the charges stick. If the woman was indeed a stripper, isn’t getting dollar bills thrown at you an occupational hazard? Whatever the judge rules will affect strip club etiquette around the world (note sarcasm).
Songz’ international tour, Chapter V, also recently made headlines as the last event attended by 22-year-old Kasandra Perkins, who was murdered in the early hours of December 1 by her boyfriend, Kansas City linebacker, Jovan Belcher, 25, after returning home from the concert at the Midland Theater and an after-party.
After shooting Perkins 9 times, he kissed her and their 3-month-old daughter, Zoey, drove to Arrowhead Stadium and shot himself in the head.
Speculation quickly began to swirl that Belcher killed Perkins in a jealous rage over some imagined relationship with Trey Songz, but the singer quickly took to Twitter to deny any involvement:
