Ne-Yo is the artist behind many acclaimed R&B songs, including Mario’s 2004 hit “Let Me Love You,” Rihanna’s 2007 smash “Take a Bow,” and Queen Bey’s 2006 three-time platinum-selling track “Irreplaceable,” so it should come as no surprise to fans of the genre. In addition to being a brilliant hitmaker throughout the past few decades, Ne-Yo is also a loving father.
Ne-Yo is making headlines these days as his ex-wife Crystal Renay is filing for divorce. Here is full detail about his divorce from Crystal Renay.
Crystal Renay and Ne- Yo Divorce
Crystal Renay, Ne-Yo’s wife, has said that she would leave her husband because she believes he has been unfaithful to her for eight years.
On Saturday, July 30, Renay posted a personal update on her marriage to Ne-Yo on social media, telling her fans that it would be an “understatement” to say she is “heartbroken and disgusted” about the situation.
After Renay shared a lengthy message on Instagram the previous day, Ne-Yo responded on Twitter on Sunday afternoon, July 31. “For the sake of our children, my family and I will work through our issues behind closed doors,” he wrote.
Personal issues shouldn’t be discussed in open forums, according to the saying. Simply respecting the privacy of my family and me at this time is all I want.
Regarding the accusations, she added, “I will no longer mislead the public or pretend that this is something it isn’t.”
“I choose to be happy, healthy, and respectful of myself. Out of this, I had three lovely children, but nothing else but lost time and misery. Because what he does is no longer my responsibility, I kindly ask that you all cease giving me recordings or information about him cheating.”
I’m not the victim here. I’ve decided to hold my head up and stand tall. It’s up to you to love yourself if someone else can’t treat you right. I have no ill will toward him and only hope for the best for him.
Why Did Crystal Renay and Ne-Yo Split?
In a recent interview with Billboard, Ne-Yo discussed previous marital issues he had with Renay. It’s no secret that the couple momentarily considered divorcing during the pandemic, he remarked earlier this month when discussing his new album Self-Explanatory.
But he added that they managed to resolve it at the time; they were married in 2016 and repeated their vows in 2022.
Renay wrote on Saturday, “8 years of falsehoods and dishonesty. For eight years, every woman who sold her body to him unprotected and without my knowledge has been a part of my life and my spouse.

It would be an understatement to say that I’m disgusted and heartbroken. It is entirely ridiculous to want me to stay and tolerate it.
“It took the epidemic for us to sit down and have those important but often awkward conversations… For whatever reason, those scenarios always make for fantastic song lyrics. The R&B artist referred to his wife’s situation in many of the song lyrics on this album.
In June of last year, the couple had their third child together. In addition, Ne-Yo has two more kids from a previous relationship.
How Many Children Does Ne- Yo have?
