R&B rapper Trey Songz is once again in the news for all the wrong reasons. A leaked alleged sex tape surfaced recently, and although the 36-year-old rapper is not visible in the video, eagle-eyed netizens have spotted a number of similarities between him and the person in the video.
Some people have noticed that the person in the video clip sounded like Songz, while others pointed out that his arm tattoos were very similar to the singer’s.
This latest controversy comes on the back of his recent arrest while attending a Kansas City Chiefs football game against the Buffalo Bills.
According to a report in TMZ, Songz was refusing to comply with the coronavirus protocols at the Arrowhead Stadium and was not wearing a mask.
Security officials intervened following complaints from fans but even they could not get Songz to comply and cops had to be called. He also reportedly got into an altercation with the police, with witnesses claiming it was self-defence on his part.
He was arrested for trespassing, resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.
In December 2020, Songz - who tested positive for COVID-19 in October - hosted an indoor “Champagne Saturdays” event at a nightclub with around 500 people, according to People.com.
People attending the event at the Ohio nightclub Aftermath, amid the raging coronavirus pandemic in the world’s worst-affected country, shared drinks and flouted coronavirus protocols.
Songz was also arrested in 2018 and was charged with felony domestic violence after he allegedly punched a woman at a party in Los Angeles. He addressed the incident on social media after his release, claiming he was “being lied on and falsely accused for someone's personal gain”.
Earlier, in 2016, Songz faced charges for assaulting a police officer after allegedly throwing music equipment from the stage after he was directed to end his performance. Two people were injured in the incident, including a police sergeant.
He pledged guilty to two misdemeanour charges of disturbing peace and was handed a 18-month probation sentence.
