LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Tremaine Neverson, also known as “Trey Songz,” faces yet another lawsuit accusing him of violence. Tyrelle Dunn, a Maryland resident, alleges in a complaint filed in Las Vegas that Neverson and his security guards beat him after he tried to get to his wife who was in a hotel room with Neverson and had screamed for help and reported being held against her will.
Lawyers for Dunn filed the lawsuit last June. Four months after a complaint was filed in Clark County District Court in Las Vegas, the singer had not yet responded, according to the plaintiff’s attorney Craig Drummond.
The allegations stem from an incident at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas on Nov. 28, 2021. The Las Vegas Strip property was also named as a defendant in the lawsuit along with “private security company.”
“Plaintiff’s wife was escorted by Defendant security personnel to room 6014 where she was told she would meet Trey Songz,” the lawsuit alleged. “That while in room 6014, plaintiff’s wife was assaulted, tried to leave and had her phone taken away.”
Dunn began searching for his wife and walked toward the room, according to the complaint. Dunn heard his wife screaming for help and reporting that she was being held against her will, the complaint stated. This is when Dunn said that he was attacked.
The 8 News Now Investigators obtained 911 calls from a worker at The Cosmopolitan who said he was in security dispatch.
“He was battered in a room and we can’t go up there because we’re not sure if the people are armed,” the worker told the operator. “They battered him and they stole his money and his chain.”
A total of four calls were obtained through a records request.
“He’s just really beat,” the caller said. “We’re standing outside the room. it sounds like there are a lot of people in the room.”
The caller stated that security was waiting for police because of concerns about what was unfolding inside the hotel room.
“We’re not going in the room until Metro shows up,” he said.
In a fourth call, he said a woman said that she was sexually assaulted.
“We already had two fights, three fights and now alleged rape while we were waiting for you,” the caller told the operator.
Las Vegas Metro police responded to the incident. In March 2022, police said that Trey Songz would not be charged.
“The LVMPD has concluded the investigation into the sexual assault allegations against Tremaine Neverson and determined that no criminal charges will be filed. If any new evidence comes to light, the case will be reopened for further investigation,” the department said in a statement.
Trey Songz and security are being sued for battery, assault and negligence. The Cosmopolitan is being sued for negligence. All of the plaintiffs are being sued for negligent hiring, training, supervision and retention.
Trey Songz was served with a summons, complaint and demand for jury trial in August, according to a court filing. An individual at his Bell Canyon, California, home was given the documents, the filing stated.
Songz had two top ten Billboard hits more than ten years ago. “Say Aah,” and “Bottoms Up” both peaked in 2010.
Trey Songz has faced previous allegations of sexual and physical assaults. Earlier this year, he pleaded guilty to a disorderly conduct violation after he was accused of assault in New York.
Last June, a woman filed a lawsuit against him. The unnamed woman alleged that he pulled down her bikini top to expose her breast in front of a crowd of people including her co-workers at an event in Connecticut in 2013.
“Plaintiff, while nervously laughing to mask her shock and humiliation, immediately pulled her top back on and prepared for another assault, holding her arm over her chest for an extended period of time,” the complaint filed in the Central District of California stated.
The incident is captured on video.
In 2020, a woman filed a lawsuit accusing Trey Songz of sexual assault and battery at a Miami night club in 2018.
The unnamed woman claimed that he forcefully and inappropriately touched her without her consent.
The woman and her friends had spent New Year’s Eve celebrating at the home of Sean “P. Diddy” Combs when Trey Songz invited them to EllEVEN nightclub, the complaint stated.
The unnamed woman stated that another woman had confided in her that Trey Songz had also sexually assaulted her earlier that night.
In 2016, Trey Songz was accused of assault at a concert in Detroit. He agreed to a plea deal for two counts of disturbing the peace and received probation.
In 2017, actress and singer Keke Palmer said that Trey Songz put her in a music video without her consent. Palmer told Larry King in an interview that she was at a party which turned into a music video and repeatedly said that she did not want to be in the video. She referred to “sexual intimidation.”
“I feel as a female often I’m in a situation where sometimes males will use their masculinity, their sexuality to taunt you,” Palmer told King. “It would be like you going to party where the biggest jock is there and the whole time he’s like you know, ‘you can get screwed, you ain’t this, you ain’t that, and you ain’t no little girl no more.'”
Palmer was later removed from the video.
In 2018, two men filed a lawsuit against Trey Songz in the Eastern District of Michigan Southern Division. Robert Avery was working crowd control as a sergeant for the Detroit Police Department and Andrew Potter was a professional photographer with credentials.
Trey Songz became irate, hurled heavy equipment off of the stage and into the crowd, destroyed items on the stage, and picked up a microphone and threw it at Potter, according to the complaint.
In a dressing room, Trey Songz was combative and shouted racially derogatory expletives to officers, the lawsuit alleged. Trey Songz struck Avery in the face with a closed fist and then caused Avery to hit his head on concrete and injure his hip, the complaint stated.
The complaint also referred to videos posted by Trey Songz showing disdain for law enforcement days before the incident in which he yelled, “[expletive] the police!”
In December 2021, Dylan Gonzalez, a former University of Nevada Las Vegas basketball player tweeted, “Trey Songz is a rapist.”
“With what seems like endlessly reoccurring news of the alleged sexual assaults committed by Trey Songz, I am forced to repeatedly relive in my mind, and suffer anew, the long-suppressed horror and unbearable PTSD of my rape by his very hands at a well known Las Vegas hotel,” she said in a statement. “I want to send my love, strength, and hope to all who are victims of sexual assault and its fatal nature. You are not alone.”
In April, a woman filed a lawsuit in California alleging that Trey Songz sexually assaulted her at his home in 2016.
“Songz repeatedly asked plaintiff if he could ‘get that ass,’ meaning have anal sex,” the woman alleged. “Plaintiff repeatedly told defendant Songz no in response to defendant Songz’ requests.”
The woman claimed that the singer then threw her to the ground and brutally sexually assaulted her. The woman ran out of the home, called a Lyft, and the driver, who noticed that the woman was in distress rerouted the ride and took her to the hospital, the lawsuit alleged.
The medical center contacted Burbank Police, but the woman did not cooperate with police because she was terrified of Songz, according to the complaint.
On at least two occasions, the woman and singer happened to be at the same events, the complaint stated.
“Songz would shout ‘get that slut out of here’ and create an environment so terrifying that Plaintiff would be forced to leave,” the lawsuit alleged.
At a New Year’s Eve party, Songz saw the woman and started screaming that she was a “slut” and a liar,” and then his security detail assaulted the woman and told her to leave, according to the complaint.
The woman said that she relocated to another state because the singer’s terror was so severe.
