After weeks of hearsay, Ne-Yo has confirmed that he has indeed split from wife Crystal Smith.
Full story below…
The pair, who tied the knot almost four years ago and have two children together, are severing ties. Officially.
Today’s confirmation comes on the heels of both removing pictures of each other on social media and the ‘Miss Independent’ singer (who has two children from another relationship) wearing his wedding ring on his pinky finger.
Speaking on the ‘Private Talk With Alexis Texas’ podcast, Ne-Yo (real name Shaffer Smith) explained:
“It’s slowly but surely becoming public knowledge that myself and my wife have decided to go ahead and get a divorce.”
He went on to add:
“There’s nothing bad to say about her. She’s a fantastic woman. She’s the mother of my children and she’s always gonna be that and I will always respect her.
We realize that our demons don’t mesh and until both of us get a hold of our personal demons, it’s gonna be just difficult for us to stay married. With that being said, that’s that, that’s the end of that chapter, not the end of the book. Like I said, that’s the mother of my kids and I love her to death. We’re going to be family forever.”
Here’s wishing both parties the best.
