Basketball player Dylan Gonzalez has come forward, accusing Trey Songz of sexually assaulting her.
The athlete, 27, took to Instagram on Tuesday, January 11, to detail her alleged sexual experience with the rapper, 37, in a Las Vegas hotel room.
"With what seems like endlessly recurring news of the alleged sexual assault committed by Trey Songz, I am forced to repeatedly relive in my mind, and suffer anew, the long-suppressed horror and unbearable PTSD of my rape by his very hands at a well-known Las Vegas Hotel," Gonzalez began the post.
"I want to send my love, strength, and hope to all who are victims of sexual assault and its fatal nature," the former University of Nevada player continued. "You are not alone. I stand with you and encourage all those who have suffered abuse to speak out and come forward. Suppression of our voices only emboldens our oppressors, and you cannot heal what you do not reveal."
"At this time I humbly request my privacy, consideration, and compassion while I fully commit to pursue the best course of action and all of my legal options," she concluded the post.
On December 30th, Gonzalez made the initial allegation against Songz, whose real name is Tremaine Aldon Neverson, as she tweeted: "Trey Songz is a rapist. Lord forgive me I Couldn’t hold that in another year. See you in 2022."
Gonzalez has hired attorney George Vrabeck to represent her as she navigates the legal proceedings moving forward.
Another woman also came forward last month, alleging the R&B star assaulted her at the Miami nightclub E11EVEN on New Year’s Day in 2018, according to NBC News. The alleged victim filed a lawsuit against Songz in the Eleventh Judicial Circuit of Florida.
A spokesperson for the "Na Na" artist reportedly responded to the lawsuit in a statement: "We have reviewed the complaint with our counsel and it is clear that neither E11EVEN nor its employees were involved in the incident which is alleged to have happened approximately four years ago. ... E11EVEN does not condone the actions alleged in any manner."
