Singer Trey Songz is accused of assaulting a woman at a Miami nightclub on New Year’s Day in 2018.
The woman identifies herself in a civil lawsuit as Jauhara Jeffries. The suit was filed Monday in the Eleventh Judicial Circuit of Florida.
Jeffries alleges in the suit that she met Songz after she attended a New Year’s Eve party at Diddy’s home on Star Island.
It says Jeffries partied for about two hours and then called for a ride-sharing service to take her and some friends to E11EVEN nightclub in Miami.
Songz, whose real name is Tremaine Aldon Neverson, was leaving Diddy’s home at the same time when he overheard a conversation between Jeffries and her friends and invited them to ride with him to the club, according to the lawsuit.
It says Songz appeared inebriated and accuses Diddy, whose real name is Sean John Combs, of hosting a party where Songz was served alcohol until he was intoxicated.
The suit alleges that Songz invited Jeffries and her friends to join him at a private table at the club. It alleges that while Jeffries was dancing on a couch, Songz sexually violated her with his fingers. It accuses him of pulling his hand away when Jeffries turned around, the suit says.
“Plaintiff immediately got off of the couch, sat down, and was in a state of shock,” the lawsuit says. Another woman who went over to see what was wrong with Jeffries told her that Songz had also violated her with his fingers, the suit claims.
Eventually, Songz, Jeffries and her friends left the club and got back into his vehicle, according to the lawsuit, which claims that Songz took his shirt off during the ride and that “fearing more assault, plaintiff began recording defendant Songz for her own safety.”
The suit says that Songz tried to grab the phone from Jeffries and that when she would not turn it over, he “instructed his driver to stop the vehicle in order to forcibly remove plaintiff from the vehicle.”
The driver “grabbed plaintiff and violently pulled her out of the vehicle, while defendant Songz pushed her, and threw her onto the street,” according to the lawsuit.
The suit says that as Jeffries was being forced out of the vehicle, Songz “threatened and ridiculed” her and threw water in her face.
A spokesperson for Songz denied the allegations and declined to comment on the lawsuit.
A spokesperson for E11EVEN wrote: "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."
The spokesperson said the company will seek to be dismissed from the lawsuit.
Representatives for Diddy did not immediately reply to a request for comment.
Jeffries' suit alleges civil assault and battery, as well as negligence and emotional distress. Jeffries initially filed it last year under the name Jane Doe.
Her attorney said the initial lawsuit was dismissed “without prejudice because of a technical error,” so the error was fixed and the case was refiled.
Jeffries is seeking more than $20 million in damages for medical expenses, lost wages and emotional distress.
