A strip club appearance has resulted in more legal trouble for Trey Songz.

TMZ reports the 33-year-old singer is being sued for allegedly attacking a fan outside Philadelphia’s Vanity Grand Cabaret. The plaintiff said she purchased tickets earlier this year to meet Trey in the venue’s VIP section; however, the artist was reportedly rude and hostile towards patrons throughout his visit. And by the end of the night, things had turned physical.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, the woman claimed she tried to take a photo of Trey in the parking lot but was met with more hostility. The singer allegedly smacked the woman’s phone out of her hand and into her face, causing her glasses to break.

The woman is suing Trey for up to $50,000. She has also filed a lawsuit against Vanity Grand Cabaret, insisting the owners were well aware of Trey’s history of "violence and negative interaction with the public."

Trey’s team has yet to publicly respond.

This case might sound a little familiar. Back in 2012, the singer was arrested for assaulting a 36-year-old woman at a Queens strip club. The alleged victim, Donna McIntosh-Inoe, went to the venue with her husband in the hopes of meeting Trey. She said that when she tried to snap a photo of the artist, he thew a bundle of cash in her face, injuring her eye.

"He chucked a wad of cash at me," McIntosh-Inoe told the Daily News. "A wad of cash […] I didn’t even know I had a bruise on my face until after I left the club. I had to walk around a whole week with a black eye."

Back in August, Trey was able to avoid jail time after pleading guilty to two misdemeanor charges of disturbing the peace. The charges stemmed from a 2016 concert that ended with Trey destroying the stage and allegedly assaulting a police officer.
