Ne-Yo and his wife Crystal Smith renewed their wedding vows in April, but it appears their reconciliation might have been short-lived.
On Saturday night (July 30), Smith shared an Instagram post alleging her singing husband is still cheating on her and now she’s finally ready to walk away from the relationship.
“8 years of lies and deception,” she began. “8 years of unknowingly sharing my life and husband with numerous of women who sell their bodies to him unprotected… every last one of them! To say I’m heartbroken and disgusted is an understatement. To ask me to stay and accept it is absolutely insane. The mentality of a narcissist.
“I will no longer lie to the public or pretend that this is something it isn’t. I choose me, I choose my happiness and health and my respect.”

Ne-Yo and Smith exchanged vows in 2016 during an oceanside ceremony about an hour outside of Los Angeles. They had three children together — Roman Alexander-Raj, Shaffer Chimere Jr. and Isabella Rose — which she said is the only good thing to come out of their union.
“I gained 3 beautiful children out of this but nothing else but wasted years and heartache,” she continued in her post. “I ask that you all please stop sending me videos or information of him cheating because what he does is no longer my concern. I am not a victim.
“I’m choosing to stand tall with my head held high. If someone can’t love you the way you deserve then it’s up to you to love yourself. With no hate in my heart I wish him nothing but the best.”
The couple hit a rough patch in February 2020 and announced they were divorcing in February 2020. The news came as a complete shock to Smith, but they wound up reconciling four months later. Speaking to The Talk in June 2020, Ne-Yo revealed COVID-19 lockdowns with saving their marriage.
“The whole quarantine thing was kind of a blessing,” Ne-Yo said at the time. “Before the quarantine happened, we were definitely talking divorce, and the quarantine forced us to sit still, block out the noise from the world — you know the world can get very, very loud, and we tend to let the world’s opinion mean more in certain situations than it should.”
He added: “We’re actually stronger now than we were before. Now we feel like we can really talk to each other.”
