AceShowbiz - Ne-Yo's wife has pulled the plug on their marriage. Just one day after publicly accusing the "Miss Independent" hitmaker of cheating, Crystal Smith filed for divorce from him as she brought a new allegation.
Revealing the news was TMZ. Crystal reportedly submitted the divorce papers on Monday, August 1, citing that their marriage is "irretrievably broken with no hope for reconciliation." She added in her court documents that he "fathered a child with another woman."
Crystal listed the date of her and Ne-Yo's separation as July 22, 2022. She went on to note that she has been taking the couple's three children since their split.
Crystal exposed Ne-Yo for his alleged cheating habits in a lengthy Instagram post shared on Sunday. "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! To say I'm heartbroken and disgusted is a understatement," she lamented.
"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," Crystal continued. "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."
Crystal then pleaded with fans to "please stop sending me videos and information of him cheating because what he does is no longer my concern." She then emphasized, "I am not a victim. 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."
Ne-Yo and Crystal got married in 2016. After calling it quits in early 2020, they reconciled. The crooner proposed to Crystal once again on New Year's Eve and eventually remarried in April on a rooftop of the new Resorts World complex in Las Vegas.
