R&B singer The-Dream is reportedly being sought after by New York law enforcement for allegedly physically harming his ex-girlfriend during her pregnancy last year.
According to reports, the attack went down last May in a New York hotel.
According to law enforcement, the alleged incident took place in April 2013 at the Plaza Hotel, roughly three months before Dream’s ex-GF Lydia Nam gave birth to his infant son. It’s unclear what prompted the alleged attack and if Nam ever sought medical attention — but for some reason, she didn’t file a police report until November, which is when she described the alleged assault to police.

Dream has denied the serious allegations and hinted at why she may have gone to such extreme accusations.
Law enforcement sources tell us, Dream (real name Terius Nash) is now wanted for questioning by police in connection with Nam’s allegations — which means if they find him … he’ll be taken into custody. For The-Dream’s part, he not only insists Nam is lying — sources close to the producer tell us, he thinks she’s a vengeful woman who’s plotting to use this alleged crime as a way to extend her visa in the U.S. (Nam is Canadian.) According to law enforcement sources, Dream was already arrested in connection with a separate domestic violence incident (also involving Nam) last June in Newport Beach, CA … but Nam refused to press charges, so the D.A. rejected the case.

The news comes on the heels of Dream releasing his new “Black” song.
In the clip, he sings about his mom, who told him, “Never be impressed by a man with no message,” while shots of Sterling pass by. Over the weekend, a recording of a man, which reportedly has been confirmed to be Sterling, is heard telling his then girlfriend that he didn’t want her posting photos online of herself with black people, specifically basketball legend, Magic Johnson.

Earlier this year, Dream announced his unexpected decision to leave Def Jam.
“I will miss this logo. It all started here! Love Everything that I achieved there, EXODUS THE-DREAM #exodusthedream,” Dream wrote January 8.
“Started with Umbrella…… Since then it’s been reigning forever.”
“Creatively engaged and tried to beat Love Hate into submission.”
“Under appreciated and unfinished! When no one would turn in a Album that year. We did, it was a grave mistake. But I am proud of my work regardless. To much EGO.”
“Creativity! My own Time my own Way. Just me and spat my Engineer at the Time. No label at All! Perfect”
“The shareholders version of 1977….”
“Freedom! EXODUS THE-DREAM”
“Let the New Tides bring The Things not yet seen! There’s more where those came from! We have only heard what I’ve brought to shore the things that lay in the deep want lye there for much longer.” (The-Dream’s Instagram)
