Trey Songz isn’t having the best fortune with lawsuits and allegations. He is now being sued by a photographer and police officer who says they were both assaulted during a angry rant, put on by the R&B singer, while performing in Detroit.
According to the lawsuit, the incident went down back in December 2016, after Trigga “became irate” due to his microphone and stage lighting being shut off. He is said to have “hurled heavy sound equipment and other items off the stage and into persons in the crowd.” The suit also states that the singer “jumped into the crowd, pushed through patrons, climbed back onto stage, and continued to destroy items on stage.
Andrew Potter, the photographer involved in the lawsuit, claims Songz “picked up a microphone stand and deliberately, intentionally, and recklessly threw it at” him. Potter says the stand ended up “striking him in the back of the head and knocking him to the ground.” It is said that the photographer “sustained a serious head injury as a result of the assault and was immediately taken to the hospital for treatment.
A sergeant with the Detroit Police Department is also apart of the lawsuit which states that Trey “struck Plantiff, Robert Avery, on the right side of his face with a closed fist.” It also states that the “defendant continued to intentionally ad physically resist the officers’ effort to secure his hands in handcuffs and, during the struggle, Defendant landed on top of Plantiff, Robert Avery, on the ground causing Mr. Avery to strike his head on the concrete and injure his hips.”
It’s not looking to good for Trey, but you know where to get the details and updates first, #LiveSquad!
