A couple of weeks ago, we reported that singer Trey Songz had been accused of hitting a woman during NBA All-Star weekend, after she was seen talking to another man. At the time the news was first reported, the woman’s name had yet to be made public.
But today, Andrea Buera, who filed a police report at the time of the incident, came forward during a press conference with her attorney Lisa Bloom.
In describing the incident, Buera said:
“I was attending an after party when Trey began yelling at me, choking me, punching me and ultimately he knocked me to the ground. While I was on the ground he continued punching me and he did not stop until his security guard pulled him off of me. People stood and watched as some scurried away. When I called an Uber, he threw both of my phones over the cliff. I was crying, terrified, in shock and I just wanted to go home. I had to go to the hospital because he hit me so hard that I had a concussion and was throwing up from the migraines. By the next day, I had bruises on my face, body and neck that only continued to get darker. I have been emotional, embarrassed, in and out of cry spells, afraid and have had a difficult time coping.”
Buera. who says she’s known Trey for about three years, says that she often wakes up in the middle of the night having flashbacks about the incident.
Bloom, Buera’s attorney said that Trey Songz’s representation has hired investigators to go after Andrea’s family. Buera herself has filed a restraining order against Songz and Bloom says while they have yet to file a civil lawsuit, it is a possibility.
During the press conference, Buera explained why she felt the need to step forward.
“The most difficult part about this, above the physical and emotional injuries, has been having to explain this to my seven-year-old daughter. I’ve opted in to doing this press conference today because I’d like to stand up for myself as the victim of a crime, as a woman and as a mother.
Trey, you know what you did. And you know what you did was wrong.
To those of you who stood and watched and did nothing, you know what you did was wrong too.
Trey, I’d like an apology. I’d like you to get help and although I’m not your first victim but I’d like to be your last.”
