Trey Songz also took to Twitter to make his first public comments about the accusations.
“For weeks my lawyers and (management) have asked me not to comment on this and I initially agreed but this morning I feel that my (family) and fans especially the youth need to hear from me,” he wrote. “I am being lied on and falsely accused for someone’s personal gain. I won’t be speaking too much more on this but would like to thank you for all the prayers and support.”
