The latest: Trey Songz, 33, is headed back to court, as Andrea Buera – the woman who accused him of attacking her at a Hollywood Hills party in February – is suing the 33-year-old Virginia native over medical expenses and additional damages as result of the incident
The rap artist, whose full name is Tremaine Aldon Neverson, was initially arrested in connection with the incident, but later cleared in a probe after officials with the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office cited a lack of evidence.
Buera told the court the Bottoms Up performer charged after her in a jealous rage after he witnessed her speaking with a man at the party.
Buera said in court docs that the I Invented Sex artist began to choke and hit her in the face, finally relenting after one of his bodyguards inserted himself in the situation.
Songz also ordered Buera to remove shorts she was wearing that belonged to a pal of his, she claimed.

In March, Buera, flanked by her lawyer Lisa Bloom, opened up about the exchange with Songz in a news conference.
‘I was attending an after-party when Trey began yelling at me, choking at me … and ultimately knocked me to the ground,’ she said. ‘While I was on the ground, he continued punching me and did not stop until his security guard pulled him off me.’
That day, Songz took to Twitter to say that he was defying the advice of his legal team to state his case to the public.
‘For weeks my lawyers & Mgmt have asked me not to comment on this and I initially agreed,’ he said, ‘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. I won’t be speaking too much more on this but would like to thank you for all the prayers and support.’
Songz’s lawyer Shawn Holley presented authorities with statements from multiple witnesses that called into question the validity of Buera’s claims, TMZ reported in April.
