What Attorney Mitchell had to say

Mitchell has strongly denied the claims, saying, “We’re highly confident and certain the court will find the witness committed perjury. Parties are still awaiting the judges’ further instructions on how to proceed given the witness’s inconsistent testimony during the hearing.” It is to be noted that George Vrabeck and Ariel Mitchell worked as partners in a legal counsel team. Now Vrabeck has withdrawn from the case. They had filed three back-to-back sexual misconduct cases against Trey.

Apart from that, this is probably the fifth time that the “Heart Attack” singer, has been charged with allegations of rape and sexual misconduct. Songz has also accused Mitchell of witness tampering in a different case. Songz’s lawyers filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit on Tuesday citing the bribing incident. When USA TODAY asked Vrabeck about the claims, he said, “Songz’s allegations against Ariel Mitchell are merely to divert attention from the horrific assault detailed in the recently filed lawsuit. Nothing more.”

Previously filed cases against Trey Songz

In January this year, the former University of Nevada, Las Vegas basketball star Dylan Gonzalez accused Songz of raping her at a Las Vegas hotel leaving her with “long-suppressed horror and unbearable PTSD.” Gonzalez encouraged other victims to come forward, saying it “only emboldens our oppressors. You cannot heal what you do not reveal.”

Vrabeck is also representing Gonzalez along with Jeffries. A woman named Jane Doe accused him of having forceful, unnatural intercourse with the victim at a 2016 house party at West Hills and leaving her with serious injuries. Earlier, Keke Palmer had accused him of using “sexual intimidation” to cajole her into appearing in a music video in 2017. In 2020 influencer Celina Powell’s friend, introduced only as Aliza claimed se*ual misconduct made by Songz.

Trey Songz tweeted in 2020 responding to the claims, “I usually stay quiet on this but I feel that in many ways some people have hijacked the movement to fight for the women who actually have suffered harassment and abuse on various levels. They find it convenient for themselves to come up as they seek to destroy someone’s life.”
