Ne-Yo and his wife Crystal Smith have gone through issues in their relationship that have played out publicly, with the couple getting divorced after being married in 2016. However, the two got back together after Ne-Yo proposed to Smith again in 2020. Earlier this year, the pair renewed their vows. However, Crystal Smith has used social media to accuse Ne-Yo of cheating and revealed who she believes it was with.
Smith wrote a long note saying, “8 years of unknowingly sharing my life and my husband with numerous women who sell their bodies to him unprotected...” She then went on to say she’s “heartbroken and disgusted,” ahead of saying, “To ask me to stay and accept it is absolutely insane. The mentality of a narcissist.”
The note continued with Smith saying, “I choose me, I choose my happiness and health and my respect.” Smith then asked people to stop sending her evidence of Ne-Yo allegedly cheating, saying, “With no hate in my heart, I wish him nothing but the best.” Take a look above.
