Ne-Yo News: New Music, New Baby, New Wife

Published: Monday 19th Sep 2011 by Rashad

With announcements from leading ladies Beyonce and Fantasia, seems Fall 2011 is a great season for R&B – with the ‘B’, apparently, being for ‘babies’.  And, while fans are anxiously expecting ‘Sexy Love’ singer Ne-Yo‘s new music projects, US Weekly reports the singer is expecting a few new things of his own.

US Weekly reports:

“The “Closer” singer (real name: Shaffer Chimere Smith) and his longtime girlfriend, Atlanta boutique owner Monyetta Shaw, are engaged and expecting their second child together, her rep confirms.  According to a source, baby number two is due very soon — in October.”

Congratulations are certainly in order for the hitmaker, whose first child was born in November 2010.  In related news, fans should be expecting more new music from Ne-Yo as his Kevin Hart-hosted mixtape 101 and fifth studio album will be arriving in the coming months.

Your thoughts?

    A gay man and gay woman decided to marry and have kids…and do their dirt on the side. Great! *rolls eyes*

    SMH @ the entertainment industry. Especially the black folk who are in it. They never want to be true to themselves. SMH.

  10. Jane Doe September 19, 2011

    Please, Neyo is not fooling anybody with his “beard”. There’s a lot of DL in the industry & Neyo like so many other artist are a huge part of it. Ask Diddy. #boybye

  11. Lady Love September 19, 2011

    Come on. It’s cute of the Ne-Yo stand to protect him, but Trust & Believe. , Ne-Yo is a Queen.
    Why u think he leaked his own pic of that Girl suckin his d***? It was an attempt to squash the Gay rumors cuz he knows he will lose fanbase from the Urban community from him being openly gay. Seriously wake up and smell the delusion…..

    DL brothas are an epidemic to the black entertainment industry.

  12. Lady Love September 19, 2011

    Remember, first this Girl started out as his “Friend” now she his “Gurl-friend” and bout to have another baby out of wedlock. Come on………She’s helping a gay brotha stay relevant and create a family the only way he can. If he really loved this woman, they woulda been married after baby #1. Clearly y’all cant see his plan. Lol,

    Congrats to them!! How can people say he is gay when you don’t even know him?

  16. MISHKA September 20, 2011

    Congrats to Ne-Yo !!!

    If Ne-Yo is on the DL like you hateful black people claim, then he should keep it that way. I don’t care about his sexuality, I just want the music.

  17. Johnny September 20, 2011

    Ne-Yo is gay and it has nothing to do with this picture. And nothing to do with they being a black couple – where did that come from? does anyone say anything about will smith and jada, beyonce and jay z, jennifer hudson and that dude she’s married with? You guys play the race card FAR TOO MUCH. It doesn’t even make sense. Stop bring skin colour to EVERY DISCUSSION on this site. You don’t see that when you go to rock blogs or pop blogs. Only R&B and Hip-Hop blogs say stuff like that. It makes me wonder it’s the black people who see the difference in skin colour and not the other races. Racism starts from within and some of you need to change!

  18. Bouncy Baby! September 20, 2011

    Congrats Neyo.

    Why all the accusations? Has anyone ever provided proof that he is gay?

    Any gay jump offs ever ousted him?

    Just wondering I hope people are not judging him from looks alone as we all know how stereotypes go.

    I know not all gay men have the same personality traits or mannerism.

  19. B_STANNING AND LOVING ADELE September 20, 2011

    @Jessica you are 100% true I couldnt have said it better. People act so stupid.

  20. Stop the hate!!! September 20, 2011

    Why are people being so mean and attacking this dude?? And we wonder why bullying and hate crimes are running ramped. Everyone is quick to call someone gay!! Rather he is or not.that’s that mans business. Leave his sista honey chile self alone!
