A yet-to-be named bartender has dragged American singer Trey Songz to court over allegations of battery while he was on duty.
In a report by TMZ, the bartender who works for Hollywood Palladium, said that he was on duty during Cardi B’s Fashion Nova launch party on May 9, 2019 when Trey jumped on the bar to sit and watch the show.
In the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, the bartender claims Trey ignored his warning not to sit on the bar, so he put his hand on Trey’s back to get his attention.
According to the lawsuit, that was when the singer allegedly turned around and punched the bartender in the head with a closed fist. He then looked at the other bartenders blankly and continued watching the show.
The bartender also claimed in the suit that he suffered physical pain, emotional and psychological injury as a result of the alleged attack, and is suing for damages.
The development came a week after it was disclosed that the ‘Bottoms Up’ singer won’t face criminal charges for his physical altercation with police at an NFL playoff game in Kansas City earlier this year.
