Trey Songz is demanding his assault accuser be shut down in her attempt to have him turn over information to her about alleged prior assaults and settlements, claiming her real motive is to use the info against him in a future lawsuit.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Songz is battling Andrea Buera, a woman who accused the “Bottoms Up” singer of assaulting her at a party in the Hollywood Hills during this year’s NBA All-Star Weekend.
Songz and Buera are going back and forth in court as Buera continues forward with her case to make her temporary restraining order against Songz a permanent one.
In his response, Songz points out that while Buera was granted a TRO, both the District Attorney and City Attorney’s Offices after careful review decided not to file criminal charges against Trey “primarily because they found Petitioner lacked credibility.”
Songz says despite this, and the fact that Buera and he have not seen or spoken to each other in six months, she continues to proceed with her efforts in seeking a permanent restraining order.
Buera is demanding Songz turn over information regarding past allegations of assault (if any), past settlements paid by him to others (if any) and other random “background” information. He says none of this is relevant to the case and none has to do with the alleged incident at hand.
He says that TRO cases are not the forum for discovery, adding, “It is clear that Petitioner’s true motivation is to gather information for a future lawsuit and to use that information to pressure” him into a settlement.
Trey Songz is demanding the court shut down Buera’s attempt to make him turn over docs over alleged past incidents. He says even though the DA and City Attorney’s Office did not prosecute, they could in the future, and he is still maintaining his fifth amendment rights to avoid incriminating himself.
The case is still ongoing.
