Ne-Yo’s wife files for divorce after their marriage was ‘irretrievably broken’

Published

on

Ne-Yo’s wife, Crystal Renay, has filed for divorce after six years of marriage just days after accusing him of infidelity with multiple different women.

In court documents, obtained by TMZ, the 36-year-old California native, who first met her estranged spouse during a casting call for the music video for his song Non-Fiction, claimed he ‘recently fathered a child with another woman.’

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

Additionally, Renay is looking for child support and alimony. 

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

The model slammed the singer for ‘eight years of lies and deception’ and claimed that he had cheated with ‘women who sell their bodies to him unprotected’ and that she’s only gained ‘wasted years and heartache’ from their union.

A day later, Ne-Yo took to Twitter to say that he was not interested in speaking publicly about the split. He said, ‘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.’

He added: ‘I simply ask that you please respect me and my family’s privacy 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, after previously getting married in 2016. The couple share sons Shaffer, 6, and Roman, 4, along with daughter Isabella, 13 months. They briefly split in early 2020, but reconciled a few months later.

‘8 years. 8 years of lies and deception. 8 years of unknowingly sharing my life and my husband with numerous women who sell their bodies to him unprotected…every last one of them!’ Crystal wrote on Instagram.

‘To say I’m heartbroken and disgusted is a understatement. To ask me to stay and accept it is absolutely insane. The mentality of a narcissist,’ she went on. 

‘I will no longer lie to the public or pretend that this is something it isn’t. I choose me, I choose my happiness and health and my respect I gained 3 beautiful children out of this but nothing else but wasted years and heartache,’ she continued. 

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

‘I ask that you all please stop sending me videos and information of him cheating because what he does is no longer my concern. I am not a victim.’

State of mind: Crystal also posted two inspirational quotes to her story that appeared to refer to the state of mind she was in

‘I’m choosing to stand tall with my head held high. If someone can’t love you the way you deserve then it’s up to you to love yourself. With no hate in my heart I wish him nothing but the best,’ she wrapped up her statement, which was captioned ‘God bless.’

Crystal also posted two inspirational quotes to her story that appeared to refer to the state of mind she was in. The first one 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 one stated: ‘There’s still women out here that don’t want anything from a man. Not money, materialistic things, nothing… nothing but trust, love, support & lots of affection. I’m her. She is me. I’m one of those women.’

It comes after the pair got married for the second time, six years after first tying the knot and two years after a divorce filing that was quickly withdrawn.

Ne-Yo – born Shaffer Chimere Smith – and Crystal first tied the knot in February 2016, as they welcomed their son Shaffer Chimere Smith, Jr. a month later.

‘Before the quarantine happened, we were definitely talking divorce,’ Ne-Yo said during a May 2021 interview on CBS’ The Talk.

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

He also shares two children with his ex Monyetta Shaw, who he was with from 2009 to 2013.

Mariah Carey Loves Christmas, Spoiling Her Kids After ‘Messed-Up’ Childhood

Published

on

Not always a Christmas queen. While Mariah Carey’s name has become synonymous with the festive holiday, her childhood wasn’t regal.

“I know a lot of the time people are like, ‘Oh, yay! Look at her! She’s, like, so festive and such a Christmas girl,’ or whatever. But, really, Christmas makes me happy. People think I had this princess-style life or whatever, a kind of fairy-tale existence where I just emerged, like, ‘Here I am!’ And that is not what it is,” Carey, 52 told magazine in a profile published on Friday, November 25.

She continued: “But when you grow up with a messed-up life and then you’re able to have this transformation where you can make your life what you want it to be? That is joy for me. That’s why I want my kids to have everything they can have. I want them to be able to understand that they can be anything they want to be.”

The “Without You” songstress became a mother in April 2011, welcoming twins Monroe and Moroccan with ex-husband Nick Cannon. (The Masked Singer host, 42, is also father to 9 other kids and is currently expecting baby No. 12, his second with Alyssa Scott.) As Carey and Cannon continue to coparent their twins, the Grammy Award winner goes all out for the holiday season.

“I create my own Christmas moment. I mean, Santa Claus visits us. He comes with his reindeer. I am not exaggerating — this is the truth,” the New York native told W. “By the way, before my kids were born, I did all the same types of things. That’s just how it is with me and Santa and the reindeer.”

She added: “I love giving them gifts because the act of opening up a ton of presents is something I wasn’t able to do as a child.”

The Meaning of Mariah Carey author kicked off her 2022 festivities with a rendition of “All I Want for Christmas Is You” during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday, November 24. As Carey crooned her hit song, the 11-year-olds made surprise cameos as they popped out of present boxes to dance alongside their mama.

“Happy Thanksgiving!!!🍁,” the Christmas Princess author wrote via Instagram on Thursday, sharing footage from the NBC broadcast. “Grateful and so proud of my beautiful kids Roc and Roe, grateful for the lambily and for the precious moments in life. ❤️❤️❤️ Now it’s reaaaallly time!!! 🎄🎅🏼.”
