District Attorney Rejects Trey Songz's Felony Domestic Violence Case
Though Trey Songz's felony domestic case has been rejected, he could still face a misdemeanor domestic violence charge.
A Los Angeles District Attorney has rejected Trey Songz's felony domestic violence case.
According to TMZ, the decision was made after the singer’s attorney Shawn Holley provided multiple witness statements to the Los Angeles Police Department contradicting Andrea Buera’s claim that Songz beat her and gave her a concussion at a Hollywood Hills party for NBA All-Star Weekend.
The case is reportedly being referred to the L.A. City Attorney’s Office, where they will decide if the 33-year-old R&b singer will be charged with misdemeanor domestic violence.
Last month, Songz tweeted a statement denying the claims, charging that he was “being lied on and falsely accused for someone’s personal gain.”
Buena’s lawyer Lisa Bloom told PEOPLE, “Celebrities too often get a pass in our legal system. We will press on for justice in the criminal court, and in the family law court where our domestic abuse case is filed.”

In a prior incident, Songz was arrested in December of 2016 for throwing music equipment and punches during his set, injuring two people — including a police sergeant. After being arrested and charged with felonious assault on another person and resisting and obstructing an officer, he pled guilty to two counts of disturbing the peace and was sentenced to serve 17 months of probation.
