R&B songwriter The Dream has been arrested and released on bail over charges relating to a violent attack on ex-girlfriend, Lydia Nam.

Rolling Stone reports the artist, real name Terius Nash, turned himself into NYPD officers yesterday (May 7). He faces charges of misdemeanours for assault, assault and strangulation, child endangerment and reckless endangerment.

Nam, who filed a police report in November after the incident took place in April, claims Nash "punched, kicked, and strangled her while she was pregnant with his son". The alleged assault reportedly took place at New York's Plaza Hotel in April 2013, three months before the birth of their son.

Nash's rep stated, "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."

At 2am GMT, The-Dream posted $20,000 (£11,700) bail and was released from custody. He was ordered to stay away from Lydia Nam.

Nash has written hit singles for artists including Rihanna and Beyonce and has released a series of solo albums under the name The-Dream. The most recent album, 'IV Play', was released in 2013.
