The R&B songwriter was charged with four counts of assault stemming from an incident that occurred in April 2012 with his ex-girlfriend.
The R&B songwriter, who is credited for penning Beyoncé's 'Single Ladies' and Rihanna's 'Umbrella,' was charged with assault after he allegedly beat up his 8-months-pregnant ex.
The NYPD booked the producer, real name Terius Nash, with four charges of assault, strangulation, act in a manner injurious to a child under 17 and reckless endangerment, police said to E!News.

One of the showstoppers at last night’s Grammy Awards in Los Angeles was superstar producer The-Dream – though not for the reasons that he was maybe hoping for.
The 35 year-old – real name Terius Nash – was among the winners last night as his team-up with Jay Z, Kanye West and Frank Ocean on Hova and Yeezy’s Watch The Throne track ‘No Church In The Wild’ won best rap/sung collaboration. Nash hit the stage with a suit-wearing Jay Z and Frank Ocean to accept the award, but it was his own clothing that drew most attention – most specifically his Boyz n’ The Hood cap. "I would like to thank the swap meet for his hat," Jay Z joked about the cap, that looked inspired by LA’s popular 80’s and 90’s teen hangout and retail area, the Slauson Swap Meet.
Afterwards The-Dream couldn’t get away from questions about the piece of headwear – which he’d worn over a woolly hat which bore the design of the ‘Parental Advisory’ logo that marks every album which contains profanity. Giving into the questions, the producer commented “Everybody’s asking. He likes to make fun of me,” adding that he got the cap at mall retailer Spencer’s. “[It’s] a really bad store for the young people” said, according to The Los Angeles Times. The big winners of the night were Mumford & Sons, who took home album of the years, and The Black Keys, who won four awards on the night.
