The-Dream Arrested for Felony Assault

The-Dream

The-Dream turned himself into police on Wednesday morning for an alleged attack on his ex-girlfriend.

According to TMZ, the singer-songwriter, born Terius Nash, has been booked for two felonies—assault and strangulation.

He surrendered at an NYPD precinct at 8:30 a.m. EST on Wednesday. He had been wanted by police for questioning in connection with an alleged assault on his baby mama, Lydia Nam, in April 2013.

Nam claims he allegedly punched, kicked, and strangled her while she was pregnant with their son. She didn’t report the incident to police until seven months later.

The-Dream has been booked for two felonies as well as three misdemeanors including assault, reckless endangerment, and child endangerment.

Last week, he addressed the incident by posting a blacked-out photo on Instagram with the word “Extortion” next to it.

    I love this site and I know you all know better than to use the wording “baby mama.” This is a music journalism site, not a blog right?

    @slyboi, It’s like they were trying to be cute/tongue-in-cheek.

    If it is true, that is really messed up. But…why did she report it 7 months later? I feel like it would be more difficult to prove. He needs to just find a woman and settle down already.

    As if “the mother of one his babies” sounds better. And of course this site is a blog. TMZ, Perez, JJ, Nicole are also blogs.

    @Abyza,

    Instead of “an alleged assault on his baby mama, Lydia Nam, in April 2013.”

    It could say “an alleged assault on Lydia Nam, the mother of their x month old son.” THAT sounds better than baby mama.

    And it’s a former *magazine’s* website. Doesn’t make it automatic blog.

    Burn this son of a bitch. Any man that puts his hands on a woman needs to be electrocuted, real talk
