Crystal Renay and Ne-Yo have officially closed the book on their marriage. And she is walking away with over a million dollars, monthly financial support for her and their kids, and thousands in assets.
According to court docs obtained by TMZ, Ne-Yo is responsible for paying his ex-wife a one-time lump sum of $1.6 million. He’s cutting that check in order to “balance out the division of their real estate holdings,” the outlet reports.
As a response to Crystal’s divorce petition, filed in August, Ne-Yo requested the judge consider her “lack of contribution” in the division of assets, including their Georgia homes.
However, court docs say Ne-Yo will be handing over the deed to one of their four Georgia homes and $20,000 in moving expenses. It’s unclear if the home granted was their marital home. Ne-Yo initially claimed he was solely responsible for paying the mortgage on that home and maintenance of all four.
Crystal’s future transportation will also be dependent on payment from Ne-Yo. He’s cutting a $150,000 check for Crystal to purchase a new car while he holds on to their already-owned 2022 Bentley Bentayga.
Ne-Yo To Pay $17,000 In Monthly Support For Crystal Renay And Their Kids
Along with housing and transportation expenses, Ne-Yo will also be responsible for paying Crystal $5,000 in alimony for the next three years–about $180,000 total. The payment is likely still a win for Renay, given that Ne-Yo initially objected to her request for temporary and permanent alimony.
Throughout their eight-year relationship, the divorced couple welcomed three children, Shaffer Chimere Jr., Roman Alexander-Raj, and their youngest, Isabella Rose, born in June 2021. Ne-Yo will pay $12,000 monthly in child support and cover school expenses for his trio.
Per the divorce docs, Crystal and Ne-Yo also have joint custody of the kids. Additionally, they’ve both agreed to keep new romantic partners away from the children unless they’re engaged, married, or get the OK from each other.
Crystal also requested $25,000 for attorney fees, but it’s unclear if the funds were granted.
As mentioned, Crystal filed for divorce just days after publicly accusing Ne-Yo of being a cheater and narcissist in July. In the divorce petition, Crystal also alleged that Ne-Yo fathered a child with another woman during their marriage.
At the time, the singer did not address her ‘outside child’ allegations–though the rumors had been swirling for months. However, he shared photos of the child for the first time in mid-January.
The child appears to be a toddler whom he fathered with social media influencer Sade. Shortly after Ne-Yo shared the images of their son, Sade reposted the selfie to her IG Story.
Sade appears to be pregnant again, but no word on whether she’s welcoming a child with Ne-Yo.
Ne-Yo is also father to two children with ex-fiancée Monyetta Shaw, which they welcomed in November 2010 and October 2011.
