The-Dream may not be able to sing his way out of this one. The singer-songwriter, currently facing assault accusations from his ex-baby momma, Lydia Nam, told the TMZ cameras as he left his recent court appearance that he never laid a hand on her.
Now, the gossip site has obtained photos of Nam (above) with the battle scratches from the alleged fight. Dream was said to have allegedly punched, strangled and kicked her while she was three months pregnant with his baby son in April 2013 at the Plaza Hotel. She waited till November to file the report.
The criminal complaint reportedly reads as follows:
According to the criminal complaint, Dream pulled and dragged her by her hair, choked her with a necklace she was wearing by twisting it tightly around her neck, kicked and punched her in the head and then grabbed her by the neck, pinning her to the wall and choking her again.
The complaint also alleged that when Nam tried to call 911, he violently twisted her arm and said he would kill her “like O.J. Simpson killed Nicole Brown.”
Nam says she waited seven months to report the incident out of fear for her safety.
The Grammy winner turned himself in on Wednesday (May 7) and was reportedly booked for two felonies and three misdemeanors, including assault, reckless endangerment, and child endangerment.
Before The-Dream hopped into his car, he told a reporter, “There are worse things in the world going on.”
