Trey Songz Accused Of Striking Woman In The Face

A young lady has accused the R&B singer Trey Songz of striking her in the face at a party held in the Hollywood Hills.

Full report below…

His alleged victim claims that she had been partying with the singer at an NBA All Star Game party when he spotted her talking to another man.

Then, after an argument, he is said to have raised his hand and slapped her mercilessly.

She was treated for minor injuries at a hospital nearby and is to learn if the star is to be charged with the supposed attack in the coming days.

Then, last year saw him accused of smacking a phone out of a woman’s hand and breaking her glasses when he spotted her trying to take a picture of him.
