R&B star Trey Songz had a bit of good news on the legal front this week. The star was accused of hitting a woman in the face with money while partying at a strip club in New York City back in August of 2012.
While the details remain somewhat fuzzy, it is evident that officials didn’t find sufficient evidence to confirm that Songz did anything illegal.
“There would be no clear case of misconduct,” the Queens, NY District Attorney’s office told TMZ. “There was just no high level of recklessness.”
So because no misconduct could be proven, the case has been dropped.
Talk about working hard for the money! 22-year-old Lauren Block was in the midst of a lap dance when she fell 15 feet from a balcony at Christie’s Cabaret and landed on her head. Police were called and were initially told that the woman was thrown over the balcony, but later learned that it was an accident.
I’m glad you asked. The lucky customer says he was on the receiving a lap dance from Block, when she grabbed the rail and then accidentally went “head first” over it trying execute some kind of jumping dance move. Block reportedly suffered “major head trauma,” and was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center where she is in critical condition.
Ain’t nobody got time for acrobatics. I hope she learned her lesson.
Say it isn’t so! Strippers -cough cough- I mean exotic dancers are now being saddity about how their dollars are being given to them?? Apparently so, because TMZ is reporting that Trey Songz was arrested behind it.
“Songz (real name Tremaine Neverson) had an album release party on August 21 at a gentleman’s club in Queens. According to police, somewhere between 4:00 and 4:15 AM on the 22nd, Trey became involved in an altercation inside the club. Cops described the incident this way in the criminal complaint: “Tremaine Neverson, did throw a sum of United States currency at the complainant and said sum of United States currency struck the complainant’s left eye causing substantial pain to her left eye.”
TMZ went onto report that Songz was not arrested that night but instead a month later for misdemeanor assault. He had a court date on November 1st and is due back in court in February.
I AM DISTRAUGHT. How, as a stripper, are you complaining that a man ASSAULTED you by tipping you when that is your craft?? Catching a few bills to the eye has to be an occupational hazard you’re accustomed to. have several seats, ma’am.
Next, she’s going to want to file a claim with worker’s compensation.
