Trey Songz is definitely one of the most notorious RnB artists in the industry right now. As reported earlier, he was accused of assault back in November. He was also hit with a $20 million lawsuit, and the story keeps going.
Songz faces several allegations of sexual assault throughout his career. The disgraced R&B artist has been quiet about the allegations except for a couple of statements from his lawyers. The $20 million lawsuit was also dropped in the end.
According to TMZ, a woman testified an attorney for Songz’s alleged victim offered her up to $200,000 to change her story and antagonize Trey. For those who don’t know, Songz was hit with a sexual assault lawsuit filed by a woman named Jauhara Jeffries, who claimed he violated her at a 2017 New Year’s Eve party in Miami.
As revealed by a transcript from a recent court hearing in the case, a woman named Mariah Thielen testified she met with Jeffries’ attorney, Ariel Mitchell, in April 2021 at a bar in Miami.
According to the transcript, Thielen, who was with Jeffries the night of Trey’s alleged assault, claimed that Mitchell offered to pay between $100k-$200k if she would lie and say she witnessed Trey sexually assault Jeffries. Mitchell allegedly said she was trying to paint Trey as “the next R. Kelly.”
Thielen added that Mitchell’s plan was to take her allegations to Trey’s team in hopes of coming to a monetary settlement, and her lies would increase the payout. Mitchell denied the claims, stating: “We’re highly confident and certain the court will find the witness committed perjury. Parties are still awaiting the judges’ further instructions on how to proceed given the witness’s inconsistent testimony during the hearing.” We will keep you updated on this ongoing story.
