Andrea Buera told reporters last week that she was the woman Songz had assaulted. Buera said he punched her repeatedly because he was upset she was talking to another man at a party 18 February.

The singer tweeted that he was being falsely accused for someone else’s personal gain.

His attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, accompanied him when he surrendered. Asked for comment, she replied that “Trey’s tweet this morning sums it up.”
