Trey Songz Sued for Allegedly Punching Bartender

Trey Songz may be off the hook in his fight with cops, but he’s facing new allegations.
The R&B star is being sued for battery by a bartender at the Hollywood Palladium, who says he was working at the bar during Cardi B’s Fashion Nova launch party on May 9, 2019 when Trey jumped on the bar to sit and watch the show.
In the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, the bartender claims Trey ignored his warning not to sit on the bar, so he put his hand on Trey’s back to get his attention. That’s when the “Bottoms Up” singer allegedly turned around and punched the bartender in the head with a closed fist. He then looked at the other bartenders blankly and continued watching the show.
The bartender claims he suffered physical pain and emotional and psychological injury as a result of the alleged attack, and is suing for damages.
Last week, it was reported that Trey won’t face criminal charges for his physical altercation with cops at an NFL playoff game in Kansas City earlier this year. Trey was arrested, but the prosecutor decided not to file charges against him due to insufficient evidence.
