R&B singer Trey Songz arrested for assaulting a striper with a ‘wad of cash’
Hip-hop artist Trey Songz tried to throw money at a problem at a Queens strip club — and got busted on an assault rap.
Donna McIntosh-Enoe was allegedly hit in the face with money by rapper Trey SongZ at a strip club in Queens.
The 28-year-old musician allegedly tossed a bundle of cash at Donna McIntosh-Inoe, 36, after she snapped a cell phone picture of him during a party at Club Perfection in Woodhaven about 4 a.m. on Aug. 22.
“He chucked a wad of cash at me,” McIntosh-Inoe told the Daily News. “A wad of cash.”
The Staten Island woman, who went to the club with her husband to see the “I Gotta Make It” star, said the knot of bills struck her so hard that it left her with a black eye.
“I didn’t even know I had a bruise on my face until after I left the club,” she said. “I had to walk around a whole week with a black eye.”
Her husband said the couple paid $700 to sit with the musician — whose real name is Tremaine Neverson — in the VIP section of the club, where he held a release party for his fifth studio album “Studio V.”
McIntosh-Inoe, a nurse, said the spat began when she snapped a cell phone picture of Songz, who quickly grabbed the phone and tried to delete the photograph.
“Everyone else was taking a picture,” she said. “The difference for me and the other girls is that they were naked and I had clothes on.”
But the frustrated Songz couldn’t trash the picture, so he threw the money at her face instead.
“He tried to delete the picture, but he didn’t know how to use my phone,” she said. McIntosh-Inoe said she couldn’t bring herself to pick up the discarded greenbacks.
“It was insulting that he just threw something,” she said. “He was verbally disrespectful as well. . . . He embarrassed me in front of everyone in the club.”
Songz never came out to apologize after the scuffle was broken up, she said.
McIntosh-Inoe went to a police station near her house and reported the incident.
Songz was arrested on Sept. 20 and slapped with misdemeanor assault and harassment charges, said a spokeswoman for Queens District Attorney Richard Brown. An order of protection was issued after he appeared in court on Nov. 1.
The musician’s representatives at Atlantic Records did not respond to a request for comment.
