Trey Songz denies sexual assault allegations made by Dylan Gonzalez
Written by Danielle Long on January 12, 2022
Trey Songz is denying allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman by the name of Dylan Gonzalez.
A rep for the R&B crooner tells TMZ, “Trey and his team are confident in the legal process and that there will be an abundance of exonerating information to come over the next few weeks.”
The response comes after Gonzalez, an artist and former University of Nevada Las Vegas basketball player, accused Trey of rape, and follows two separate previous allegations of sexual assault against the “Bottoms Up” singer that emerged in November and December of last year.
Taking to Twitter Tuesday, Gonzalez issued a statement showing support for other victims alongside the hashtag “BeStrongNotSilent.”
“With what seems like endlessly reoccurring news of the alleged sexual assaults committed by Trey Songz, I am forced to repeatedly relive in my mind, and suffer anew, the long-suppressed horror and unbearable PTSD of my rape by his very hands at a well known Las Vegas hotel,” she wrote.
“I want to send my love, strength, and hope to all who are victims of sexual assault and its fatal nature. You are not alone,” the athlete continued. “I stand with you and encourage all those who have suffered abuse to speak out and come forward. Suppression of our voices only emboldens our oppressors, and you cannot heal what you do not reveal.”
Gonzalez then requested “privacy, consideration and compassion while I fully commit to pursue the best course of action and all of my legal options” and directed all further inquiries to her attorney George Vrabeck.
Gonzalez’s statement comes after she sent a New Year’s Eve tweet with the initial accusation, “Trey Songz is a rapist. Lord forgive me I Couldn’t hold that in another year. “See you in 2022.”
Details regarding when the incident occurred were not disclosed.
