*Trey Songz turned himself in to police on Monday to face charges of felony domestic violence stemming from an incident last February at a party in the Hollywood Hills.
On Feb. 21, Andrea Buera filed a police report claiming that the singer hit her in the face because he was talking to another man. She sought hospital treatment for her alleged injuries, TMZ reports.
Songz, born Tremaine Aldon Neverson, denied Buera’s claims on Twitter Monday morning before turning himself in, saying: “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. I am being lied on and falsely accused for someone’s personal gain.”

Songz’s lawyer, Shawn Holley, is said to have accompanied him to the Los Angeles Police Department, where he was booked at 6 a.m. on March 19 and released shortly after 8 a.m., having posted a $50,000 bond.
On March 13, Buera gave a news conference in which she claimed that she and Songz have known each other for three years. In her account of the incident, she said, “Trey began yelling at me, choking me, punching me and ultimately he knocked me to the ground. While I was on the ground he continued punching me and he did not stop until his security guard pulled him off of me.” Buera claimed that the alleged attack left her with a concussion, and that she continues to experience trauma as a result.

According to TMZ, cameras weren’t in position to capture his genitalia. Witness cell phone footage obtained by detectives weren’t conclusive because they were shot from too far away. Also, the alleged victim never came forward to cooperate with the investigation after leaving the scene.
