They say, when it rains it pours, and in this case, it’s raining down like an Ashanti video.
While news broke last week that hit maker The-Dream was in the midst of legal issues with his newest baby mama Lydia Nam, it wasn’t until this week that he turned himself into the authorities.
Today, TMZ has obtained images of Lydia during her pregnancy that show bruises and scratches that coincide with her abuse claims. Claiming that the scratches and bruises on her neck and arm are from an altercation with the famed artist last year. Revealing the photos seven months after the alleged assault, the stylist says that she waited so long because she was in fear of her life.
Still promoting his innocence, The-Dream states that Lydia’s claims are false and all apart of a ploy to remain in the Untied States. With a Visa set to expire soon, the Canadian can only stay in the country should she be a victim of a crime and needed in the prosecution of the perpetrator – i.e. The-Dream.
As messy as this sounds, The-Dream took to his Instagram account to continue his plea of innocence. Take a look at what he had to say after the jump!
“As my mother would say “you’ve taken my sweetness as a weakness” I feel sorry for whoever has to live without Love in their heart. Yet I might smile to keep from crying, that hurt isn’t caused by one thing or one person it’s caused by the others who choose to speak at me as if I am worthless. I gave my whole life to all of you through myself and others. I have sang you to sleep, I have sang at your weddings, I’ve empowered women through words and through others, on top of that my LOVE for the woman period is infinite, my only fear I carry is my Mother Reva M Nash looking down on me and being a shame of me. If I have no life outside of music it’s because I’ve given almost everything to you, I would give any and everyone the shirt off of my back. Retain the sympathy I picked this life so I am fine with the non sympathizing , I am blessed and I have seen things others can only dream of and I know I am fortunate. My mind and heart is clear and I will not retreat and I will not Kneel to the face of Injustice .When the light shines on these days in the near future I will welcome you all back with open arms so you can understand what love is. I’ve already forgiven you.#FreeDream #black #under-attack#CONSIDERTHESOURCE #LOYALTY #PROONYX”
