Grammy-winning artist Ne-Yo was hit with divorce papers when his wife Crystal Renay Smith announced she was leaving him and publicly accused him of fathering children with another woman during their marriage.

Renay filed divorce documents in Atlanta earlier this week which indicated they have been separated since July 22. She said the couple has “no hope for reconciliation” and their relationship has been “irretrievably broken.”

Before the divorce was filed she had already blasted him on social media, writing that she was “unknowingly sharing my husband with numerous women who sell their bodies to him unprotected.”

The couple had just performed a vow renewal ceremony in April 2022 after being married in 2016. They have three children together, two sons and a daughter. Renay will be seeking primary custody and joint legal custody of their children.

It wasn’t indicated when exactly the infidelity occurred besides the fact that this alleged child was born “recently.” The singer, whose full name is Shaffer Chimere Smith, has responded to the filing by saying, “My family and I will work through our challenges behind closed doors.”

He remained tight-lipped as to whether the cheating allegations held any water.
