The case filed against the singer from All Star Weekend 2018 has been officially dismissed.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the alleged victim Andrea Buera, says she’s dismissing all charges against Trey.
The court also decided to dismiss the case with prejudice; meaning Buera cannot refile her claims against the singer at a later date. This decision was made based on the repeated charges that Buera has made against Songz without adequate evidence.
The alleged incident occurred back in Feb 2018 during NBA All-Star Weekend in LA. Buera, filed a police report claiming Songz hitting her in the face after seeing her speak to another man. Her lawyer said Songz “called [Buera] names, choked her, and repeatedly punched her in the face.” Songz explicitly denied these claims.
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

During a press conference, Buera said, “Trey, I’d like an apology. I want you to get help, and although I am not your first victim … I’d like to be your last.”
In March, Trey turned himself in to authorities and was released on a $50,000 bond. In April, Buera’s accusations were dismissed after the LAPD received witness testimonies that heavily contradicted her account. Songz and his lawyer, Shawn Holley, argued that Buera had actually been the instigator and that he acted out of self-defense. The court sided with Trey’s account and in response Buera dropped the charges.
