Ne-Yo’s estranged wife, Crystal Renay has filed for a divorce from the singer.
According to TMZ, Crystal, who tied the knot with Ne-Yo in 2016, gave the date of separation as 22 July, 2022 in the divorce documents.
Though the couple has three kids together, Crystal claimed that the singer recently fathered a child with another woman.
According to the divorce document obtained by PageSix, Renay claimed that Ne-Yo “recently fathered a minor” with his “paramour.”
She called their marriage “irretrievably broken with no hope for reconciliation”.
This is coming days after Renay had accused the music star of cheating on her with “numerous” other women throughout their nearly decade-long relationship.
“8 years of lies and deception. 8 years of unknowingly sharing my life and husband with numerous of women who sell their bodies to him unprotected… every last one of them!” she wrote.
“To say I’m heartbroken and disgusted is an understatement. 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 continued.
As part of her divorce requirements, Crystal was seeking physical custody of the children and joint legal custody.
The singer’s wife signed the statement with her maiden name – Crystal Renay – which indicated that she had dropped her husband’s surname.
Born Shaffer Smith, the singer had renewed his marital vows to Crystal in April 2022.
This is the second time Crystal would file a divorce in her marriage.
She earlier filed one in 2020 and withdrew it.
