Filipina accuses R&B singer Trey Songz of physical assault

It’s one of the latest high profile incidents in the #MeToo movement, after Los Angeles-based Filipina Andrea Buera spoke out publicly for the first time last week accusing her former friend, R&B singer Trey Songz, of physically assaulting her last February.

The Grammy-nominated suspect surrendered to LAPD this morning to face a felony domestic violence charge.

 

Buera, who is represented by high profile lawyer Lisa Bloom, held a press conference in Los Angeles last week, describing the details of an alleged beating by Songz at a nightclub on February 18th.

 

“He hit me so hard that I had a concussion and was throwing up from the migraines,” Buera said. “By the next day I had bruises on my face, body and neck that continued to get darker.”

 

Buera says she went to a hospital after leaving the party. She obtained a temporary restraining order against Songz from the Los Angeles Police Department.

 

On Monday morning Songz turned himself in toLAPD, where he was booked and released shortly after posting a $50,000 bond.

Songz took to Twitter this morning in his defense, saying, “I am being lied on and falsely accused for someone’s personal gain.”

 

A hearing for a permanent restraining order by Buera against Songz is set for March 27. Buera’s lawyer also made a plea for witnesses of the alleged assault to come forward.
