An award-winning pop star has been arrested on suspicion of assault, after a row with his girlfriend, it has been claimed.

The singer, who is in his 30s, is alleged to have attacked his partner during a heated argument.

Neighbours allegedly heard ‘screams’ from her flat on Tuesday, with police arriving on the scene shortly after.

The London-born star – who cannot be named for legal reasons – was reportedly taken to a police station in south London over a ‘disturbance’.
