Singer Trey Songz has been accused of rape again. On Friday, December 31, former University of Las Vegas women’s basketball player Dylan Gonzalez tweeted, “Trey Songz is a rapist. Lord forgive me I Couldn’t hold that in another year.” Gonzalez didn’t include any more details in her accusation, nor did she explicitly state that she was raped by Trey Songz.
The singer, whose real name is Tremaine Neverson, has faced multiple accusations of sexual and physical assault over the past decade. Most recently, Las Vegas police investigated assault accusations against him this past November. Songz is also facing a $20 million lawsuit after a woman claimed she was sexually assaulted by the R&B crooner inside E11Even nightclub on New Year’s Day in Miami in 2018.

Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has announced his resignation amid mass protests over the military’s rule. The military launched a coup in October and put Mr Hamdok under house arrest, but he was reinstated the next month after signing a new power-sharing deal.
Demonstrators have since continued to take to the streets to demand an entirely civilian political leadership. In a televised address, Mr Hamdok said a new agreement was needed for Sudan’s transition to democracy.

The Hornets have reportedly refused to release Dennis, who has scored eight Premier League goals this season. Osimhen has been ruled out following a positive COVID-19 test and is still recovering from facial fractures.
The injury in November was expected to rule the Napoli frontman, 23, out of the tournament, which starts on January 9 in Cameroon. Dennis and Osimhen have been replaced by Sparta Prague striker Peter Olayinka and Olympiakos forward Henry Onyekuru.
