It appears that Trey Songz is ending 2012 learning one very important lesson: Watch how you spend your money. Or better yet, be careful on how you toss your money while supporting the arts. Back in August, Trey was trying to make it rain and ended up drying up in a jail cell.
I mean, if it happens again, I’ve got bail.
Meanwhile, TMZ has the story:
Throwing dollar bills at a woman (aka MAKING IT RAIN!!!) seems harmless, but it got Trey Songz arrested for assault in New York recently … TMZ has learned.
Songz (real name Tremaine Neverson) had an album release party on August 21 at a gentleman’s club in Queens. According to police, somewhere between 4:00 and 4:15 AM on the 22nd, Trey became involved in an altercation inside the club.
Cops described the incident this way in the criminal complaint: "Tremaine Neverson, did throw a sum of United States currency at the complainant and said sum of United States currency struck the complainant’s left eye causing substantial pain to her left eye."
It is unclear if the woman in question was … how do we say this nicely … a stripper.
Songz was not arrested that night, but rather a month later for misdemeanor assault. Songz had a court date in NY on November 1 and an order of protection was issued. He is due back in court in February.
Additional details via Miss Jia:
Donna McIntosh-Enoe was at the record release party with her husband, and apparently the two of them paid $700 to join Trey and his entourage in the VIP section. Everything was going fine until Donna decided to snap a cell phone pic of Tremaine, and he was not having it.
‘Everyone else was taking a picture,’ she said. ‘The difference for me and the other girls is that they were naked and I had clothes on.’
But the frustrated Songz couldn’t trash the picture, so he threw the money at her face instead.
‘He tried to delete the picture, but he didn’t know how to use my phone,’ she said. McIntosh-Inoe said she couldn’t bring herself to pick up the discarded greenbacks.
‘It was insulting that he just threw something,’ she said. ‘He was verbally disrespectful as well. . . . He embarrassed me in front of everyone in the club.’
So basically she paid $700 to hang in VIP with Trey and all she got for it was a black eye. Yikes.
