Trey Songz is claiming he was only defending himself in his ongoing domestic assault lawsuit filed by Andrea Buera.
Songz, 34, whose real name is Tremaine Neverson, is arguing self-defense as the reason to throw out the lawsuit, according to court documents obtained by The Blast. The “Slow Motion” crooner claims he wasn’t responsible for any injuries Buera sustained and says he “reasonably believed Plaintiff was going to harm him and any force he used was only the amount reasonable necessary to protect himself.”
Songz has been battling Buera since All-Star Weekend 2018 when she claimed he allegedly attacked her.
Both the Los Angeles District Attorney and City Attorney declined to file misdemeanor and felony charges against him for lack of evidence, so Buera filed a civil lawsuit against him, claiming he choked her and punched her several times in the face after he saw her talking to another man.
Songz’s lawyer didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
