UNLV basketball star, Dylan Gonzales, has accused Trey Songz of rape. In an Instagram statement, Gonzales did not indicate when the alleged assault took place, but according to the Daily Beast, the alleged assault happened nine years ago.
Last year, on New Year’s eve, Gonzalez hinted at the sexual assault by tweeting in part. “Trey Songz is a rapist…”.
Today, Gonzales issued a full statement on the alleged sexual assault via her social media. See below.
“With what seems like endless reoccurring news of the alleged sexual assault 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,” she issued in an Instagram statement.
“I want to send my love, strength, and hope to all who are victims of sexual assault and its fatal nature. You are not alone. I stand with you and encourage all those who have suffered abuse to speak out and come forward. Suppression of voices only emboldens our oppressors, and you cannot heal what you do not reveal,” she continued.
“At this time, I humbly request my privacy, consideration and compassion while I fully commit to pursue the best course of action and all my legal options.”
Gonzalez has hired Attorney George Vrabek who issued the following statement about his client:
“We admire Dylan’s courage and willingness to stand up for herself and others. And like Jauhara Jeffries, Dylan is no longer willing to suffer in silence. We intend to pursue Dylan’s claims relentlessly and to a successful conclusion.”Juahara Jeffries is another woman who alleged she was sexually assaulted by Trey Songz.
