Ne-Yo renewed his vows with wife Crystal Renay on Sunday April 24, 2002, in an elaborate, red-themed Las Vegas soirée following their separation two years ago. They exchanged vows on the rooftop of the new Resorts World Las Vegas in front of an intimate crowd of celebrities, friends and family. The venue was decorated with thousands of red roses and an eight foot cake with four different flavors. Well perhaps more attention should have been made towards the vows that were made because just under four months later, Crystal Renay Smith took to social media that she will be filing for a divorce from her husband Ne-Yo.
Crystal shared a statement through a post on Instagram where she revealed that she would be calling it quits. In the shocking post, the mother-of-three revealed that Ne-Yo has been unfaithful throughout their six years of marriage, and that he has been seeing numerous other women for the past eight years. “8 years of lies and deception. 8 years of unknowingly sharing my life and husband with numerous of women who sell their bodies to him unprotected. Every last one of them,” said Smith. She then went on to express how heartbroken and disgusted she is by her husband and his infidelities, and then made it clear that she can no longer stay in an unhappy marriage. She also stated how she will also no longer protect Ne-Yo and his affairs from the public. Crystal then mentioned that the only blessing she has gained from her marriage are the three beautiful children that they share and shared with her followers that she is finally choosing to put her mental health first.
“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,” said Smith. The mother-of-three ended off her statement by asking that people stop sharing videos and pictures of her estranged husband cheating, because whatever else he has to do from here on out is no longer her business. Ne-yo posted on social media asking for privacy, after liking Crystal’s post. Unfortunately Ne-yo lost his wife and the respect of a lot of fans.
