Singer and entertainer Ne-Yo has been taken to court by his wife Crystal Renay who wants to end their relationship citing issues within their marriage that can’t be forgiven.
According to reports, Ne-Yo is being accused by Crystal Renay of cheating on her and also fathering a child with another woman.
Having tied their knot in 2016, the two love birds have been married for nearly six years now and had always painted a happy picture on social media about the relationship but it seems things weren’t as they seemed.
Renay, who shares three kids with Ne-Yo said that their marriage can’t be saved and she wants a separation from the RnB singer. She is also seeking primary physical custody, joint custody, child support, and financial support.
Renay has been married to NE-YO, 42, since February 2016, and the pair shares three children: 13-month-old daughter Isabella Rose, as well as sons Roman Alexander-Raj, 4, and Shaffer Chimere Jr., 6.
After posting on her Instagram account that the singer was a serial cheater, PEOPLE obtained documents to prove she had filed for divorce which finally proved that the rumours about them no longer seeing eye to eye was true.
According to the divorce documents, Renay alleges that the “So Sick” singer — whom she claims to have been separated from since July 22 — recently fathered a child with another woman.

Ne-Yo’s wife also says she’s been taking care of their three children since their separation, and she’s seeking primary physical custody and joint legal custody as well as child support and alimony to top it off.
On July 30, Renay shared a post on Instagram alleging Ne-Yo was unfaithful to her in their marriage and that their relationship was now over. However, Ne-Yo has remained silent about the entire situation and said he will not comment on “personal matters.”
“Eight years. 8 years of lies and deception,” Renay wrote in her post, which has since been taken down along with her entire account. “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!”
“To say I’m heartbroken and disgusted is an understatement,” her message continued. “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. 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,” Renay added.
When the news broke out, Ne-Yo responded to the claims on his Twitter saying:
“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 said. “I simply ask that you please respect me and my family’s privacy at this time.”
