Trey Songz, the US actor and singer, has reacted to sexual assault claims against him by Dylan Gonzalez, the ex-University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) basketball player.
Gonzalez first accused the 37-year-old, whose name is Tremaine Aldon Neverson, of rape in a Twitter post on December 31.
She had alleged that the actor raped her at a “well-known hotel” in Las Vegas in the United States.
“Trey Songz is a rapist. Lord forgive me I couldn’t hold that in another year. See you in 2022,” she had written.

In a follow-up post via Instagram on Tuesday, Gonzalez said she is weighing legal actions.
She added that she would not stop speaking up despite the criticisms coming her way.
“With what seems like endlessly recurring 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. 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.
“At this time, I humbly request my privacy, consideration and compassion while I fully commit to pursue the best course of action and all of my legal options. Gracias Mi Gente, Dyl.”
But in a statement sent to TMZ, the actor’s team said the matter is being investigated.
The team also said it is confident that Songz would be cleared of the allegations.
“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,” it read.
