Trey Songz, Atlantic Records & Kevin Liles Named In $25 Million Sexual Assault Lawsuit
Trey Songz is facing a $25 million sexual assault lawsuit, with the singer's label Atlantic Records and manager Kevin Liles as defendants.
Nearly four months after having his rape civil case dismissed, Trey Songz is facing another lawsuit. According to a new Rolling Stone report, the R&B singer has been named in a $25 million lawsuit from a woman who previously accused him of sexual assault. The suit also includes several new defendants; the 38-year-old's record label, Atlantic Records, manager Kevin Liles and 300 Entertainment, which Liles co-founded in 2012.
In lawsuit documents, the woman, known as 'Jane Doe,' claims that each party should be held responsible for Songz's actions. Filed in Los Angeles on Thursday (February 9), the lawsuit derives from a sexual battery case Doe filed in February 2022, where the woman accused Songz, legal name Tremaine Neverson, of sodomizing her at a March 2016 party. While Doe claims that the two were involved in a consensual sexual relationship, she accused the singer of becoming a “savage rapist," saying that he forced himself on her at the March 2016 party.
Doe’s attorney, George Vrabeck, provided a statement, where he said that Liles, Atlantic and 300 Entertainment are all guilty of ignoring claims towards Neverson.
“This case is much more than about one singer and one viciously abused sexual assault survivor who has the courage to take action,” Vrabeck said. “It’s also very much about the systematic sexual abuse in the music industry and the music industry’s complicity in silencing sexual abuse survivors. It’s virtually impossible to believe that those executives are not and were not aware of the institutionalized sexual abuse.”
