Dylan Gonzalez is the latest woman to come out in public with startling accusations levelled against R&B veteran Trey Songz.
Trey Songz issues response to fresh rape allegations
Gonzalez, a former University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) basketball player, at first, left heads scratching on New Year’s Eve when she tweeted:
Trey Songz is a rapist.— Dylan Gonzalez (@IIGonZ_) December 31, 2021
Lord forgive me I Couldn’t hold that in another year.
See you in 2022 🤘🏽
This was not accompanied by any context and fans, for the most part, could not understand if this was a general statement or a personal indictment.
Then, on Tuesday, Gonzalez launched her own ‘Be Strong Not Silent’ hashtag, where she categorically accused the singer of sexual assault, claiming that recurring rape allegations levelled against Trey force her to relive “the long-suppressed horror and unbearable PTSD of my rape by his very hands at a well-known Las Vegas hotel.”
“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,” she wrote.
As reported by TMZ, Trey, real name Tremaine Aldon Neverson, is ready to defend himself when the matter heads to court since, it’s understood, Gonzalez has already recruited the legal expertise of high-profile attorneys Ariel Mitchell and George Vrabeck.
A representative of the singer responded on his behalf, confirming Trey irrevocably denies the allegations and is ready to take this stance in court.
“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 rep said.
