She may have taken seven months to report her alleged attack, but The-Dream’s latest baby’s mother is providing some receipts.
TMZ obtained images of Lydia Nam’s injuries and they look pretty consistent with her claims that Dream choked and punched her while she was six months pregnant. The horrifying images show the visibly pregnant stylist with a large bruise on her left arm and scratches on her face and neck. Lydia claims the neck scratches were the result of the singer twisting the necklace she was wearing tightly around her neck. The images also show scratches and bruises on her wrists, knees and legs from when he allegedly dragged her by the hair.
The-Dream is still claiming his innocence.
He says Lydia’s making the whole thing up in a last-ditch effort to stay in the country. Apparently, her visa is set to expire soon which will result in her being deported back to Canada. But a special visa can be granted to immigrants to remain in the U.S. if they’re crime victims and needed in the prosecution of the perpetrator.
As for the seven-month wait, Lydia says she kept her mouth shut out of fear for her safety.
Today, after the photos were released, The-Dream posted the definition of ‘Con’ on Instagram with a message to his fans and critics:
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 [ashamed] 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
