Domestic violence charges have been dropped against “America’s Got Talent” winner Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., who was accused of striking a woman with a golf club.


The singer was arrested in July for allegedly sending his former girlfriend to the hospital with injuries to her head and face in West Virginia, but the charges have now been dropped, according to a criminal order obtained by the Daily News.


“The people who know me best know that is not in my nature to do any of this things I was accused of. Even though my former girlfriend and I are no longer a couple, we have a child to raise, Logan Eli, and we both want our son to realize that his parents love him. He is the center of my life,” Murphy said in a statement to The News.


The 42-year-old was initially charged with domestic battery and unlawful or intentional physical contact or harm to family or household member.

At the time, he stated he did not strike his ex and that she had attacked him with the golfclub and a knife.


“In defending myself, she obtained some bruises and swelling on her face,” he said.


Murphy won the reality competition series in 2011 for its sixth season.
