Trey Songz is asking a judge to throw out a lawsuit accusing him of sexually assaulting a woman at a 2013 pool party.
The suit was filed in June of this year, with a Jane Doe alleging the R&B singer exposed her breasts at a pool party in front of a crowd of people before yelling “Titty in The Open … Titty in The Open.” The incident allegedly occurred at Foxwood’s Resort Casino, one of the local casinos in Connecticut.
The singer and his legal team argued that the case is past its statute of limitations of three years. As of Friday (September 8), the judge overseeing the case has yet to decide on Trey’s motion to dismiss the suit.
The lawsuit is demanding $10 million for sexual battery and assault, which includes claims that Trey Songz allegedly grabbed and exposed her breast at the pool party after she merely tried to get a picture with the singer.
At the time the woman was working as a business analyst for a local liquor distributor. The Doe claims the incident made her feel “ashamed, embarrassed and anxious” about whether or not her colleagues had seen her breast.
The defendants in the lawsuit are Songz, his production company, record exec Kevin Liles, and Atlantic Records.
“Entities such as Atlantic Records and key executives like Kevin Liles must reassess their obligations toward ensuring the safety and dignity of everyone at any event associated with their artists,” her attorney told Rolling Stone. “My client demands transparency, accountability, and a prioritization of safety over profits.”
The alleged victim previously demanded a $5 million settlement in April 2022.
