R&B singer Trey Songz alleged sexual assault victim Dylan Gonzalez maintains her story, and continues to be an ally to others who are sexual assault survivors.
Just as 2021 came to an end the former University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) basketball star accused Trey Songz of being an alleged rapist in a tweet on Dec. 30, 2021. “Trey Songz is a rapist.” Gonzalez tweeted. “Lord forgive me. I couldn’t hold that in another year. See you in 2022.” Gonzalez didn’t confirm that she was personally an alleged sexual assault victim of Songz until she tweeted a statement on Tuesday (Jan.11).
After Gonzalez publicly voiced her accusation of Trey Songz it was as if it contributed to validating other accusations made against Songz in the past—including actress Keke Palmer’s. In 2017 Keke Palmer opened up about being sexual intimidated by Songz during separate interviews with The Breakfast Club and Larry King Now.
Since then more women have accused Trey Songz of being sexually inappropriate or abusive, aside from Gonzalez and Palmer. In 2018 a woman named Amber Buera alleged that Songz physically assaulted her at an All-Star weekend party in the Hollywood Hills, according to Blavity. Buera’s legal team alleged that Songz called “[Buera] names, choked her, and repeatedly punched her in the face” for supposedly talking to a friend at the party, according to Complex.
Following up in 2020 a Georgia woman, known under the pseudonym JANE DOE, sued Trey Songz for $10 million after he allegedly sexually assaulted her in a Miami nightclub. According to the Daily Beast, Songz allegedly tried “plac[ing] his hand under her dress, without her consent, and attempt[ed] to insert his fingers into JANE DOE’S vagina without her consent or permission.”
That same year, on an episode of a No Jumper podcast, OnlyFans model Aliza alleged that Songz non-consensually urinated on her, and threatened to destroy her belongings if she left his residence. With the resurfacing and circulation of these allegations, Gonzalez has had to relive her traumatic experience with Songz.
Gonzalez expressed in a statement posted to her Twitter on Tuesday (Jan.11) that she has been suffering a “long suppressed horror” and “unbearable PTSD” from the incident.
“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,” Gonzalez said in her statement.
