Trey Songz is being accused of rape by former UNLV basketball player Dylan Gonzalez, who claims the singer committed the assault against her at a Las Vegas hotel.

Gonzalez, who previously tweeted that “Trey Songz is a rapist” on Dec. 31, has now detailed her allegation on Instagram and Twitter, extending her support to women who have experienced sexual assault.

“With what seems like endlessly recurring news of the alleged sexually assaults committed by Trey Songz, I am forced to repeatedly relive in my mind, and suffer anew, the long-supressed horror and unbearable PTSD of my rape by his very hands at a well known Las Vegas hotel,” Gonzalez wrote of Songz, birth name Tremaine Neverson. “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.”

Gonzalez continued in her post, writing that she encourages all who have suffered from assault to come forward, and that “you can not heal what you do not reveal.”

“At this time, I humbly request my privacy, consideration, and compassion while I fully commit to pursue the best course of action and all of my legal options,” Gonzalez wrote, urging those with additional inquiries to contact her lawyer George Vrabeck, who also shared his client’s statement.

Back in November, TMZ reported that Songz was under investigation over an alleged sexual assault that took place at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. A source told the publication that Songz and friends brought women back to the hotel following his 37th birthday celebration at Drai’s Nightclub.

Complex has reached out to a representative for Songz for comment.

Songz has faced other legal troubles dating back several years, as last year he was accused of hitting a woman’s car and her hand after they had gotten into an argument, per TMZ. After bumping her car, he’s alleged to have then hit her hand while fleeing the scene, as the incident was reported as a hit-and-run. Songz has since denied those allegations. Earlier in 2021, at a Kansas City Chiefs game, Songz was arrested after placing an officer in a chokehold, but prosecutors said they decided against filing charges.

Also earlier last year, the singer reportedly settled a $10 million civil suit for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman in 2018. The alleged incident took place at Miami’s E11even night club, where he was accused of “proceeding to forcefully place his hand under her dress, without her consent, and attempting to insert his fingers into Jane Doe’s vagina without her consent or permission.” He has maintained his innocence.

“I usually stay quiet on this but I feel that in many ways the movement to fight for the women who actually have suffered harassment and abuse on various levels, has been hijacked by those who find it convenient for themselves to come up as they seek to destroy someone’s life,” he previously tweeted regarding allegations made by Celina Powell and her friend Aliza on the No Jumper podcast, per Vibe.

Hiplife/afrobeat artiste and songwriter, Eugene Kwame Marfo, known on stage as Kuami Eugene, has revealed he was expecting to win the Highlife Artiste of the Year and Collaboration of the Year awards at the 2022 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.

According to him, he was featured on many songs which were hits in the year under review, therefore was expecting at least one of the songs to win the Collaboration of the Year.

“It wasn’t even my songs. These were songs that I was featured on. Look at the songs that I was featured on, from ‘Yeeko’ to ‘Biibi Besi’ toAbodie’, and none of those songs had an award. But then, again, it’s VGMA, and we have limited power when it comes to VGMA,” he told   Hitz FM in an interview.

For the Highlife Artiste of the Year category, Kuami Eugene explained that in the year under review, he had embarked on a journey of championing highlife music.

“I have been championing highlife for some time now, but whoever took it also deserves it because they have also been working as well,” Kuami Eugene said.

Despite not taking home an award on May 7, when the event was held, Kuami Eugene says he was not disappointed.

“I have never been disappointed. It’s like somebody saying, ‘I want to loan you money’ and they wake up and say ‘I don’t think I can loan you my money anymore.’ Somebody’s award, if he says I will give it to someone else, I can’t fault that person (sic),” the musician explained.
