Miami, FL

Trey Songz is currently facing a number of sexual assault allegations, but one woman has come forward with claims she was offered a $200,000 to paint the singer as the “next R. Kelly.”

According to TMZ, Mariah Thielen testified in a recent court hearing she met with sexual assault accuser Jauhara Jefferies’ attorney, Ariel Mitchell, at a Miami bar in April 2021. She said Mitchell smelled like marijuana during the meeting and had a gun on her.

Thielen, who was with Jeffries the night of the alleged 2017 assault, said Mitchell offered to pay between $100,000 to $200,000 if she’d lie and say she witnessed the singer sexually assault Jeffries.

Thielen also said Mitchell allegedly wanted her to claim she was assaulted, too, with hopes of getting a bigger settlement from Songz’s team.
