Ne-Yo and Crystal Renay are officially divorced. The couple married in 2016. Renay initially filed for divorce from the singer-songwriter in August after accusing him of cheating. The divorce was finalized on January 26, 2023.
Renay filed for divorce in Fulton County, Georgia. In the filing, Renay asked for primary physical custody of the parties’ children. Ne-Yo and Renay share three children: Isabella, Shaffer Chimere Jr., and Roman Alexander-Raj. According to court documents obtain by Billboard, the Fulton County judge presiding over the matter ordered Ne-Yo to pay Renay $12,000 per month in child support.
In the filing, Renay also claimed Ne-Yo had “recently fathered a minor” with a “paramour.” The couples’ relationship has seen its fair share of ups and downs throughout the years. The couple wed in a high-profile wedding ceremony in 2016, only to formally split two years later. They then re-tied the knot in April 2022. Although the couple re-tied the knot, it appears their relationship was never built on solid ground as Renay publicly took to Instagram to accuse Ne-Yo of putting her through “8 years of lies and deception…” Only time will tell how the pending claims between the parties related to their split are resolved.
