Trey Songz caught a break in his felony domestic assault case.
The Los Angeles District Attorney has rejected the case, TMZ reported, after Songz’s attorney Shawn Holley reportedly gave numerous witness statements to LAPD that contradicted alleged victim Andrea Buera’s account of events during NBA All-Star Weekend in February.
The musician’s case will now be handed down to the Los Angeles City Attorney, who will decide whether to charge Songz with the lesser charge of misdemeanor domestic violence.
The LA District Attorney didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
As Page Six previously reported, Songz, whose real name is Tremaine Neverson, was arrested in March for allegedly assaulting Buera. Songz was released and then denied the allegations on social media.
“For weeks my lawyers & Mgmt have asked me not to comment on this and I initially agreed but this morning I feel that my fam, the women that raised me, my friends & fans especially the youth need to hear from me,” he wrote. “I am being lied on and falsely accused for someone’s personal gain.”
Buera, who is represented by attorney Lisa Bloom, also received a restraining order against Songz prior to his arrest.
