Neighbours alerted police after hearing screams at teatime.
Officers raced to the address, defused the situation and spoke to the multi-award-winning star and unnamed woman.
She told officers she sustained minor injuries but did not require hospital treatment.
Police then arrested the singer, in his 30s, on suspicion of common assault and took him to a South London police station.
His fingerprints, photo and a DNA swab were taken before he was bailed until the end of the month.
Statements will be taken from any potential witnesses under police protocols for dealing with incidents involving allegations of domestic violence.
A local said: “Apparently, he had a row with a girlfriend that ended up getting out of hand.
“There was a lot of screaming and one of the woman’s neighbours called the police.
“They turned up, nicked him and led him away.”
The Met Police confirmed they were called to a disturbance at 6.03pm on Tuesday.
The force added: “Officers attended and a woman reported minor injuries. Inquiries are ongoing.”
