Trey Songz, P Diddy Face $20 Million Sexual Assault Lawsuit

Trey Songz and Diddy are officially facing a $20 million sexual assault lawsuit from a young woman, who has accused Songz of assaulting her in a nightclub in early 2018.

Tremaine Aldon Neverson, known professionally as Trey Songz is in the spotlight due to some unfortunate news. It is being widely reported that authorities are investigating Trey in Las Vegas. According to TMZ, law enforcement sources advise that the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is currently looking into claims of a sexual assault incident at the Cosmopolitan hotel involving Songz and this criminal investigation appears to be linked to a civil suit filed against Songz and Diddy.

The plaintiff identified as Jauhara Jeffries, who initially filed the lawsuit (named as “Jane Doe”) back in January of 2020, demanding $10 million in damages. But Jeffries has just recently submitted this updated $20 million action to a Florida federal court, naming as defendants (besides Trey Songz and Diddy) a Miami nightclub and “an entity that provided security personnel” for Songz at the time of the alleged assault.

“The instant case mirrors in some ways the relationship of Ghislaine Maxwell to Epstein,” the firmly worded complaint maintains at the outset, for “just as Maxwell is alleged to have secured victims for Epstein’s pleasure, it seems Sean Combs’s and E11even nightclub’s actions in part precipitated the events that led to the sexual abuse of” Jeffries.

Trey Songz allegedly “overheard a conversation between” Jeffries and her friends, at which point he purportedly invited the plaintiff and another individual “to ride to [sic] with him to” the defendant nightclub. Observing that “Songz was likely intoxicated,” the plaintiff says that she nevertheless accepted the offer because a member of the “Slow Motion” artist’s “security team was driving the vehicle transporting them.”

Once at the club, 37-year-old Trey Songz – who’s faced other sexual assault allegations – allegedly invited Jeffries to “a private table,” to which the nightclub “provided food and bottle service.” And while the plaintiff claims that she opted to drink “water only,” Trey Songz is alleged to have “continued to drink although he already appeared intoxicated.”

“She then felt fingers being inserted into her vagina, turned around, and saw Defendant Songs [sic] pulling his hand away from her bottom. … Plaintiff immediately got off of the couch, sat down, and was in a state of shock.” (Worth disclosing is that the aforementioned first version of the lawsuit centered on Trey Songz’s “attempting to insert his fingers into Jane Doe’s vagina without her consent or permission.”)

And after learning through conversation that “another woman who was also in attendance” had suffered the same alleged abuse, the plaintiff states that she and others in the group were allegedly ordered by Songz to depart the club for his vehicle. “While still in shock,” Jeffries then took a center seat in said vehicle and, after Songz “removed his shirt,” began recording him “for her own safety,” fearful of “more assault,” the text indicates.

Finally, Songz allegedly became angry and “attempted to forcibly remove the phone” before ordering his driver to stop the vehicle and kick out Jeffries, who allegedly sustained “scrapes on her legs” upon hitting the ground. During the incident, Songz allegedly “threatened and ridiculed” Jeffries, pushed her out, and “threw water in her face.”

In terms of Diddy’s role in the alleged crime, Diddy purportedly “had a duty to exercise reasonable care in serving alcoholic beverages.” A representative for Songz, who is signed to Warner Music’s Atlantic Records, denied the allegations when speaking with HipHopDX – which WMG bought last year, it bears highlighting.

A Short Conversation About ‘Snitching’ Led To The Murder Of Nipsey Hussle -Prosecutor

the woman who has accused singer Chris Brown of drugging and raping her on a yacht in late December 2020. In text messages between Brown and the accuser which was exclusively obtained by Radar, Jane Doe, the woman is seen courting Brown in lewd language and bare-naked selfies almost immediately after the alleged rape took place.

A Los Angeles prosecutor on Wednesday told jurors that a conversation between Hussle and fellow gang member Eric R. Holder, was a catalyst in the rappers shooting. AP reported that the prosecutor told jurors that pre-mediated the rapper’s 2019 killing after a short conversation between the two men regarding accusations of “snitching.”

The highly-publicized trial kicked off this week with opening arguments on Wednesday following nearly two weeks of jury selection and a pandemic-related delay.

Holder, 32, faces one count of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted first-degree murder in the shooting that left Hussle dead and two other men injured. Holder faces possible life in prison if convicted.

Deputy District Attorney John McKinney used his opening statement on Wednesday to describe the sequence of events that led to Hussle’s May 2019 death outside his clothing store in South Los Angeles, according to news reports.

Hussle, a South LA native who was born Ermias Asghedom, was using his notoriety to help revitalize his community at the time of his death. Prosecutors said Hussle and Holder grew up in the same neighborhood and knew each other from both being members of the same gang, the Rollin’ 60s.

McKinney told jurors that prior to the shooting, the two men had a brief, chance conversation in which Hussle told Holder there were rumors that the latter was a “snitch” and he should “clear that up,” according to The AP. The district attorney described the short discussion as a “cool conversation” in which Hussle told Holder that he’d heard Holder was talking to police about members of the Rollin’ 60s.

The allegation, McKinney said, “moved Eric Holder to a point of wanting to return to the parking lot and kill Nipsey Hussle,” according to The AP.

Minutes later, Holder returned to the same parking lot with two guns and fired multiple shots at Hussle, prosecutors allege. The rapper was hit 11 times and two other men were also struck, according to officials. Police arrested Holder two days later following a manhunt and a grand jury indicted Holder two months after his capture.

McKinney on Wednesday said there was “no doubt” that Holder planned to kill Hussle ahead of the shooting, The AP reported.

“He clearly thought about what he was going to do before he did it,” McKinney said in court.

Jurors on Wednesday were shown video of the aftermath of the shooting in which multiple people tried to resuscitate Hussle, the outlet reported. McKinney also showed the courtroom photos and video of the shooting, with Holder running away afterward in a red shirt and bandana with a semiautomatic gun and revolver in hand, according to The AP.

Several eyewitnesses who knew both Hussle and Holder have previously told police and a grand jury that Holder approached Hussle and fatally shot him. Hussle was 33 at the time of his death and left behind a young son and daughter.

The defendant’s attorney, Aaron Jansen, plans to argue that Hussle’s killing was not premeditated. The lawyer has also said that the other two men injured in the shooting were not intended targets, making the attempted murder charges excessive. The AP reported that the attorney is likely to emphasize Holder’s mental health issues as well.

The Grammy-award-winning rapper’s death prompted mass displays of mourning in Los Angeles and across the world, with several athletes, musicians and politicians memorializing Hussle. 

The trial is expected to last about two more weeks, according to The AP.

Los Angeles District Attorney Will Not File Felony Charges Against The Man Who Attacked Dave Chappelle At Comedy Show

Comedian Dave Chappelle’ lawyer says the comedian is unhappy with Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón’s decision not to file felony charges against the man who allegedly attacked him on stage.

“It’s a travesty of justice that Gascón is refusing to prosecute this case as a felony,” Gabriel Colwell told the New York Post on Friday. “The city attorney, who filed the case, is doing his job but DA Gascón should also do his job and charge this as a felony.

Bloodstone’s other hits include “Never Let You Go”, “Outside Woman” and “My Little Lady”. Bloodstone was instrumental in the “black rock” and funk movement of the 1970s, and even play

“… Entertainers in LA need to know this is a justice system that will protect them. There is no question here that when someone is violently assaulted by another in possession of a deadly weapon that it should be charged as a felony.”

Colwell echoed those comments to Rolling Stone magazine, telling the publication: “This is what Mr. Chappelle wants. Mr. Chappelle wants this case charged as a felony. … Ten thousand people saw Dave Chappelle assaulted on stage at the Hollywood Bowl last Tuesday night, and the assailant had a deadly weapon on him. The fact that this isn’t charged as a felony case by the DA is insane.”

Isaiah Lee, 23, was charged Thursday by the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office with single misdemeanor charge of battery, possession of a weapon with intent to assault, unauthorized access to the stage area during a performance and commission of an act that delays an event or interferes with a performer. He appeared in court Tuesday for a bail review hearing during which bail remained set at $30,000.

Lee is due back in court May 20 after pleading not guilty to the four misdemeanor counts.

Earlier Thursday, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced that it would not file any felony charges against Lee.

“After reviewing the evidence, prosecutors determined that while criminal conduct occurred, the evidence as presented did not constitute felony conduct,” according to a statement from the District Attorney’s Office.

The office opted to refer the case to the City Attorney’s Office, which handles misdemeanor prosecutions.

​Hip-Hop’s Queen Latifah Breaks Ground On Community-Driven Real Estate Project In Newark

Published

Queen Latifah returned home to Newark on Tuesday, warmly welcomed by fans, family and public officials at a groundbreaking ceremony for a mixed-use project she is partnering with local developers to build on a block with a troubled past.

“I was born here, St. Michael’s Hospital, so this is definitely my home,” said Latifah, 52, who spent some of her early years in neighboring East Orange and Irvington. But getting back to Newark, she added, “This is where Sarah Vaughn is from, so I’m proud to be from here.”

Latifah, an award-winning rapper, singer, and actor who stars in “The Equalizer” on CBS, appeared before a crowd of about 150 people gathered at the site of the RISE mixed-use project between Springfield and 19th Avenues, west of 16th Street, near the boundary of Central and West wards.

The project will include 60 two- and three-bedroom market-rate apartments in four townhouse clusters, and 16 affordable units in a separate building. It will also have space for healthcare or other professional offices and nonprofit organizations.

Rent for the market-rate units will start at around $1,800 a month, said officials of GonSosa Development, the company headed by Alberto and Yacinda Goncalves and Ricardo Sosa that is partnering with Latifah’s development company, Blue Sugar, on the project. Blue Sugar’s CEO is her longtime friend and fellow Newarker Tammy Hammond.

Construction began this winter on the first phase of the project, a dozen market-rate apartments in a three-story building designed to look like a townhouse cluster, which is expected to be completed this summer. Additional phases will be finished gradually, including the affordable units sometime in 2023, with the entire project done by early 2024.
