Trey Songz Arrested for Alleged Assault
Police confirm R&B singer Trey Songz has been arrested on suspicion of punching a woman at a Los Angeles party.
Officer Drake Madison says Songz, whose real name is Tremaine Neverson, turned himself in Monday at a Hollywood police station. He is accused of felony domestic violence.
Jail records show the 33-year-old was released about two hours later on $50,000 bail.
Andrea Buera told reporters last week that she was the woman Songz had assaulted. Buera said he punched her repeatedly because he was upset she was talking to another man at a Feb. 18 party.
The singer tweeted Monday that he was being falsely accused for someone else's personal gain. In a followup tweet, he wrote: "I won’t be speaking too much more on this but would like to thank you for all the prayers and support."
For weeks my lawyers & Mgmt have asked me not to comment on this and I initially agreed but this morning I feel that my fam, the women that raised me, my friends & fans especially the youth need to hear from me.

Songz's attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, accompanied him when he surrendered. Asked for comment, she replied that "Trey's tweet this morning sums it up."
