Ne-Yo’s wife, Crystal Renay Smith, accuses him of cheating

It seems that Ne-Yo’s wife is about to become “Miss Independent”.

Crystal Renay shared a passionate statement on Instagram on Saturday, accusing her husband of cheating on her with “countless” other women over the course of their nearly ten-year relationship.

“8 years of lies and deceit. For eight years I unknowingly shared my life and my husband with countless women who sell their bodies to him unprotected… one by one!” began her statement.

“To say I am devastated and disgusted is an understatement. Asking me to stay and accept it is absolutely insane. The mindset of a narcissist. I will no longer lie to the public or pretend this is something it isn’t,” she continued.

Renay, 36, added that she would focus on herself, writing: “I choose me, I choose my happiness and health and my respect.

“I’ve had 3 beautiful children with this, but nothing but wasted years and heartache,” added the model of the three children she shares with the 42-year-old singer – sons Shaffer Chimere, 6, and Roman Alexander-Raj, 4, as well as 13-month-old daughter Isabella Rose.

She concluded on a conciliatory note that nevertheless radiated an air of finality: ‘If someone can’t love you the way you deserve, then it’s up to you to love yourself. With no hatred in my heart, I wish him nothing but the best.”

A wave of celebrities and influencers proclaimed their allegiance to Renay in the comments section, expressing both condolences and messages of support.

“Be excited about your truth🤍 now it’s just time for the next chapter in your story. I’m sending you all the good vibes,” wrote social media personality Landon Romano.

“Sorry,” wrote model and dancer Bria Myles, adding five melancholy crying emojis.

By Sunday afternoon, Ne-Yo responded to Renay’s post via Twitter.

“For the sake of our children, my family and I will face our challenges behind closed doors,” he explained.

“Personal matters are not meant to be discussed and dissected in public forums. I am simply asking you to respect the privacy of me and my family at this time.”

Renay first started dating Ne-Yo sometime after the two met in 2015 to potentially collaborate on the musician’s upcoming album, according to People.

The R&B star’s ex-fiancée, Monyetta Shaw, 42, – with whom he shares Madilyn Grace, 11, and Mason Evan, 10 – claimed in a 2016 New York Post op-ed that she learned of his involvement with Renay in 2014, a year after breaking up with Shaw over the phone.

Anyway, the “One in a Million” crooner successfully proposed to Renay in 2015, and the two married just under a year later – at the time she was nearly nine months pregnant with their first child.

The couple briefly split in 2020 before remarrying in 2022 and hosting a lavish ceremony in Las Vegas to celebrate their reunion.
