Ne-Yo and his wife, Crystal Renay, tied the knot in 2016. The couple has been blessed with three children together, and their youngest child was born just over a year ago. However, the couple’s six-year marriage will soon end after Renay files for divorce from the singer.
Crystal Renay Accuses Ne-Yo Of Cheating On Her
According to her court filing, Crystal Renay believes that Ne-Yo did not only cheat on her with another woman; he also fathered someone else’s child. The matriarch also said that her marriage to Ne-Yo is irretrievably broken with no hope for reconciliation.
Renay also requested primary physical custody of her young children days after she filed for divorce from Ne-Yo. She’s also seeking joint legal custody.
Prior to her custody filing, Renay posted a cryptic message on Instagram where she busted Ne-Yo’s infidelity.
“Eight years of unknowingly sharing my life and husband with numerous women who sell their bodies to him unprotected… every last one of them! To ask me to stay and accept it is absolutely insane. The mentality of a narcissist. I will no longer lie to the public or pretend that this is something it isn’t,” she said in a now-deleted post (via Page Six).
Ne-Yo Releases Statement Following Crystal Renay’s Allegations
Shortly after, Ne-Yo replied and said that for the sake of his children, he intends to work on his family’s issues behind closed doors.
“For the sake of our children, my family and I will work through our challenges behind closed doors. Personal matters are not meant to be addressed and dissected in public forums. I simply ask that you please respect me and my family’s privacy at this time,” Ne-Yo said.
Ne-Yo, Crystal Renay Almost Split 2 Years Ago
This is not the first time that Ne-Yo and Renay have gone their separate ways. In 2020, the couple announced their split to the public, only to get back together four months later.
During a previous interview, Ne-Yo admitted that prior to the first COVID-19 lockdown, he and his were already talking about divorce. But after they were forced to spend more time with each other, they decided to make their marriage work.
“The whole quarantine thing was kind of a blessing. It allowed me the time to lock back in with my wife and kids,” he said (via People).
The “Because of You” singer also said that he and Renay were forced to have difficult conversations at the time. And they came out much stronger and more committed to each other than ever before.
Unfortunately, two years later, Renay has decided to end her marriage to Ne-Yo.
