Following three separate allegations of sexual assault in four months, Trey Songz is again being accused of the same crime.

The “Bottoms Up” singer is being accused of raping a woman at his home in a new $20 million sexual assault case. The woman claims that she had a consensual sexual relationship with the singer, but that changed on March 24, 2016 when he allegedly became a “savage rapist,” she said in the lawsuit, according to TMZ.

A representative for Songz denied the allegations.

“The attorney who drafted this suit was credibly accused of trying to pay a woman to falsely accuse Trey,” the rep said in a statement. “That same attorney has filed this suit on behalf of an anonymous client. It isn’t hard to see what’s happening here, and it is a shame for genuine victims of sexual assault.”

The woman involved in the new lawsuit claims that in 2016, Songz raped her after she told him she did not want to have anal sex. The woman also alleges that she went to the hospital and was too frightened to name the artist after she was examined. She said the examination found that there was “severe anal tearing that could require surgery.”

Ariel Mitchell, the lawyer for Jauhara Jeffries, the woman accusing the singer of assaulting her in 2017 in another case, denied she attempted to bribe witnesses.

“This is nothing more than bullying and an attempt to silence counsel and the many victims who have been assaulted by defendant Songz and will be vigorously defended in court,” Mitchell told TMZ. “I will further be exonerated as I was when this allegation was previously made by defendant Songz’s prior attorney.”​​​

In January, a third woman, Dylan Gonzalez, also accused Songz of rape.
