Ne-Yo is in trouble. His wife, Crystal Renay, publicly accuses him of having cheated on her with several women for eight years. “I am devastated and disgusted by the news,” she wrote in a message shared on Instagram.

Crystal Renay made a sensational revelation on social networks. Her husband, singer Ne-Yo, allegedly cheated on her with several women over an eight-year period. “Eight years of lies and deception. Without knowing it, I have shared my life and my husband with countless women who sell their bodies to him without protection,” she wrote on Instagram. “To say that I am deeply saddened and disgusted by this matter is an understatement. Asking me to stay and accept it is crazy. The behavior of a narcissist.” The model then explains that she made the choice to leave, “for [son] happiness”. “I have three beautiful children, but other than that, I’m left with wasted years and heartaches.”

She asks her subscribers not to send her “videos and information” about her cheating husband anymore. “What he does does not concern me anymore. I am not a victim.” Despite the disappointment, Renay “stays upright”. “If someone can’t love you the way you deserve, then it’s up to you to love yourself,” she wrote again, before adding that she carries “no hatred in her heart” and that she only wishes Ne-Yo the best.


For his part, the singer has decided to manage this matter in privacy, as he explained in a message on Twitter. “For the sake of our children, my family and I will face our challenges behind closed doors. I ask you to respect our privacy.”


Ne-Yo, real name Shaffer Chimere Smith, married Crystal in 2016. In 2020, it was announced that they had filed for divorce, but the decision was never made official. In April 2022, they even decided to renew their wedding vows. They have three children together: Shaffer Chimere Junior, 6, Roman Alexander-Raj, 4, and Isabella Rose Smith, 1.
