Ne-Yo’s wife Crystal Smith accused the singer of being unfaithful for eight years, wishing him “nothing but the best” in a scathing social media post shared on Saturday night.
Smith, 35, who has been married to Ne-Yo, 42, for six years, detailed the cheating allegations in a pointed Instagram post captioned, “God bless you 🤍.”
“8 years of lies and deception. 8 years of unknowingly sharing my life and my husband with many women who sell their bodies to him without protection…until the last!” she wrote.
Ne-Yo, who “liked” her post, replied on Twittersaying he and his family will meet the “challenges” in private.
“For the sake of our children, my family and I will meet our challenges behind closed doors. Personal matters are not meant to be discussed and dissected in public forums. I just ask that you respect my privacy and that of my family at this time,” he wrote online.
The two have “3 beautiful children together,” she notes in the post, although she claims to have gained “nothing but lost years and heartache” in their marriage. Smith also suggests that she can no longer stay in the relationship.
“To say I’m heartbroken is an understatement. Asking me to stay and accept it is absolutely insane,” Smith wrote on Instagram.
She went on to say that she “is not a victim” and asked that people stop sending her videos and information regarding her husband’s alleged infidelity as it is “no longer my problem”.
“I choose to stand tall with my head held high. If someone can’t love you the way you deserve, it’s up to you to love yourself. With no hate in my heart, I only wish them the best “, Smith added.
The post comes three months after she and Ne-Yo renewed their wedding vows, according to E!, and after a split in 2020.
In May, Ne-Yo told the publication that he and Smith were “considering divorcing” while quarantined during the coronavirus pandemic, but the two came out stronger than ever.
“As a human being, it’s really difficult, especially with someone you love and care about. You care about how they feel,” he said. “So their saying something about themselves that maybe they don’t like is hard to do, plus it’s hard to hear about yourself.”
