The-Dream Turns Himself In On Assault Charges, Rep Confirms And Issues Statement
The-Dream turned himself in to NYPD earlier this morning, after being wanted by police for questioning. According to TMZ, the singer was booked on felony assault charges after allegedly physically harming his ex-girlfriend, Lydia Nam, back in April 2013.
The successful singer-songwriter, born Terius Nash, ended up being charged with three misdemeanors including assault, acting in a manner injurious to a child, and reckless endangerment, as confirmed by NYPD.
REVOLT also obtained an official statement from The-Dream’s camp about the incident, which reads:
“Dream voluntarily surrendered to the Midtown North Precinct this morning in order to responsibly address the false allegations filed against him by Lydia Nam. He is innocent of the charges filed against him today, and we are confident that when this case is concluded and all the evidence has been reviewed, it will be clear that he is innocent.”
The April 2013 incident was said to have reportedly taken place at New York’s Plaza Hotel. It remains unclear why Nam waited until November of that year to file a police report.
