Mangroe also alleged that Dream "frequently pitted Rihanna against Beyonce," implying the We Found Love singer "was fighting for his attention and was frustrated that he was giving it to Beyonce instead of her."

"He said that Rihanna was begging him for good records but because of his special 'sanctuary' relationship with Beyonce, he saved them for Beyonce and that Ms. Mangroe could be part of that as well," she claimed.

"According to Dream, Rihanna was possessive over him and got angry when he worked with Beyonce. In an apparent effort to reiterate how grateful Ms. Mangroe should be for the opportunity to work with him, Dream told her that Rihanna would frequently send him flowers and other gifts."

"Dream reminded Ms. Mangroe that she better be 'grateful' that he was working with her because he was putting work on Beyonce’s album on hold, and that if she wanted to reach the same level of success as Beyonce, she needed to become as close to or closer to him than Beyonce. He said that meant that Ms. Mangroe should ask and follow his advice on everything, rely on him to be her main confidant, and limit her inner circle to only those people he approved of and trusted," the lawsuit read.

Dream allegedly claimed he'd "share the specific formula he used with Beyonce" if she "acted right," and promised her she would open for Beyonce's tour, "going as far to force Ms. Mangroe to diet and exercise excessively to prepare" for life on the road.

"Dream led Ms. Mangroe to believe through manipulation and coercion that if she allowed him to completely control every aspect of her life, they could create the ultimate “sanctuary” that would surpass anything he accomplished with Beyonce or Rihanna," the documents claimed.

"For a new artist, the thought of becoming the next Beyonce or Rihanna was obviously intoxicating, and Ms. Mangroe was willing to work as hard as possible to make her recording dreams come true."

She said all that changed when she discovered Beyonce was not going on tour.

Mangroe stated she "had no reason" not to believe Dream as he was successful and well-known for working with artists like Beyonce and Rihanna, who he allegedly "convinced her" were "dependent on him for their success." It wasn't until she started applying pressure and asking more questions about the tour that she found out the truth.

"Ms. Mangroe also started asking Dream more questions about Beyonce’s tour because he continued to regularly tell her that she was 'prepping' for it. Dream played Ms. Mangroe a song he wrote for Beyonce that featured Jay- Z. He told Ms. Mangroe that he was not allowed to play the song for anyone but he allowed her to hear it to get her excited for the tour," she claimed.

"Weeks later, Ms. Mangroe mentioned to Schoudel that Dream played her a new Beyonce song. She was excited about hearing it and asked Schoudel not to tell Dream she told him that she heard it. However, to her shock, Schoudel told Ms. Mangroe that it was an old record they had cut and that it ultimately did not make Beyonce’s previous album. It was not part of a new album or tour. In fact, as it turned out, Beyonce was not preparing for a tour at all. Ms. Mangroe started to realize that the dizzying whirlwind Dream had led her through was a mirage, and she started to fear that Dream never truly wanted to produce her record, but just wanted to control her physically and mentally."

Article continues below advertisement told you the specifics of the explosive allegations, in which Mangroe claimed Dream subjected her to "violent sexual encounters that left her badly bruised." She also claimed he allegedly raped her in the back of a sprinter van after reportedly forcing her to engage in separate sex acts in a movie theater.
