Ne-Yo’s Wife Files For Divorce After Their Marriage Was ‘Irretrievably Broken Up’

Ne-Yo’s wife Crystal Renay filed for divorce after six years of marriage just days after he accused him of infidelity with several different women.

In court documents, obtained by TMZ, the 36-year-old Californian, who first met her ex-partner during a casting call for the music video for her song Non-Fiction, claimed he had “recently fathered a child with another woman”.

Since their separation date, which she lists as July 22, 2022, she said she has been caring for their three children and is seeking primary physical custody of the children and joint legal custody.

Additionally, Renay is seeking child support.

On Saturday, Renay accused the star of continually being unfaithful during their eight-year relationship in a text message uploaded to Instagram.

The model slammed the singer for ‘eight years of lies and deception’ and claimed he cheated with ‘women who sell their bodies to him without protection’ and only gained ‘lost years and heartache” thanks to their union.

A day later, Ne-Yo took to Twitter to say he was not interested in speaking publicly about the split. He said: “For the sake of our children, my family and I will meet our challenges behind closed doors. Personal matters are not meant to be discussed and dissected in public forums.

He added: “I just ask that you respect my privacy and that of my family at this time.”

The posts come after the couple gave their marriage a second chance and tied the knot again in a Las Vegas wedding in April, having tied the knot in 2016. The couple share sons Shaffer, 6 , and Roman, 4, with daughter Isabella, 13 months. They briefly separated in early 2020, but reconciled a few months later.

‘8 years. 8 years of lies and deceit. 8 years of sharing my life and my husband without knowing it with many women who sell their bodies to him without protection… until the last one!’ Crystal wrote on Instagram.

“To say I am heartbroken and disgusted is an understatement. Asking me to stay and accept it is absolutely insane. The mindset of a narcissist,” she continued.

“I will no longer lie to the public or pretend that is not the case. I choose myself, I choose my happiness and my health and my respect, I gained 3 beautiful children, but nothing but lost years and heartache,” she continued.

She then begged fans to stop sending her videos of her husband allegedly with other women.

“I ask you all to stop sending me videos and information about his cheating, because what he does does not concern me anymore. I am not a victim.

“I choose to stand tall with my head held high. If someone can’t love you the way you deserve, it’s up to you to love yourself. With no hate in my heart, I wish them only the best,” she concluded her statement, captioned “God bless you.”

Crystal also posted two inspirational quotes in her story that seemed to reference the mindset she was in. The first read, “You don’t need closure from them. Because true closure is realizing your worth, choosing yourself, and walking away to get what you deserve.

The second said: “There are still women here who don’t want anything from a man. No money, materialistic things, nothing…just trust, love, support and lots of affection. I am her. She is me. I am one of those women.

‘Quarantine has forced us to sit still, block out the noise of the world – you know the world can get very, very loud, and we tend to let the world’s opinion mean more in some situations than it does should,’ he added.
