Ne-Yo’s wife Crystal Smith says she found out about their divorce from the tabloids after he announced it on a podcast before telling her.
The 34-year-old says the singer – real name Shaffer Chimere Smith – who she married in 2016, didn’t even tell her he was divorcing her, and she learned about it by reading celebrity news sites.
Speaking on the Tamron Hall Show, she said: “We weren’t really talking at that time. I chose to leave the relationship because of issues, and at the time I felt like it was to get back at me or to hurt me, or whatever the case may be. He said that it wasn’t so I took his word for that. But it definitely didn’t feel good, it was embarrassing to say the least.”
Ne-Yo, 41, made a very public statement about the divorce in February, telling podcast Private Talk with Alexis Texas: “It’s slowly but surely becoming public knowledge that myself and my wife have decided to go ahead and get a divorce.
“There’s nothing bad to say about her. She’s a fantastic woman. She’s the mother of my children and she’s always gonna be that and I will always respect her.”
But he said Crystal has “demons just like everybody else”, including himself.
