A Philadelphia woman is suing singer and rapper Trey Songz for allegedly attacking her outside of a strip club, according to TMZ.

The website reports that the woman claims she bought tickets to see Songz in the VIP section of the Vanity Grand Cabaret in Southwest Philly. Songz was at the venue for an after party following a performance in May.

The woman alleges Songz was hostile to fans all night. She claims when she went to take a photo of him in the parking lot, he smacked the phone out of her hand and into her face, breaking her glasses.

The woman is suing Songz and the venue, and is seeking $50,000 in damages. The artist didn't respond to TMZ's request for comment.

Page Six notes that Songz reached a plea deal in August for an assault case in Detroit. Songz became upset at a December 2016 show when police said the concert needed to end. Microphones and speakers were reportedly thrown from the stage, and a police officer was punched.

Songz reached a deal with prosecutors, in which felony assault charges were reduced to two counts of disturbing the peace.
