The 33-year-old musician, whose legal name is Tremaine Neverson, was arrested around 6:30 a.m. Monday, Los Angeles police said. He was released on $50,000 bail around 8 a.m., according to sheriff's jail records.

A woman accusing Trey Songz of domestic violence at a Hollywood party is speaking out.



The arrest stems from an alleged incident at a party in Hollywood on Feb. 18, during which Songz allegedly hit a woman.

Songz has denied the assault allegation.

In a tweet posted Monday morning, Songz tweeted, in part, "I am being lied on and falsely accused for someone's personal gain."

The woman accusing Songz, Andrea Buera, spoke out during a press conference last week, claiming that Songz repeatedly punched and choked her in front of several people, and no one stopped him.

According to Buera's attorney, she has obtained a restraining order against the singer.
