According to TMZ, the district attorney rejected the case because of inconsistencies in the stories said by the alleged victim, Andrea Buera. In addition to that, Songz's attorney, Shawn Holley, gave multiple witness statements to the Los Angeles Police Department and these statements also contrasted from what Buera told authorities about the alleged incident.
"We're told Holley also provided further info that led to skepticism about Buera's credibility," the news outlet reports. "The case will now be referred to the L.A. City Attorney, who will decide whether or not to charge Songz with the lesser charge of misdemeanor domestic violence."
As previously reported, Songz was accused of punching a woman in the face at a party when he saw her speaking to another man. The singer would later turn himself in a few days later and be released on $50,000 bail. After that, the singer took to Twitter to speak about the situation.
"For weeks my lawyers & Mgmt have asked me not to comment on this and I initially agreed but this morning I feel that my fam, the women that raised me, my friends & fans especially the youth need to hear from me," he tweeted. "I am being lied on and falsely accused for someone’s personal gain."
Songz added: "I won’t be speaking too much more on this but would like to thank you for all the prayers and support."
