The wife of Grammy-winning singer and songwriter Ne-Yo is storming away from the marriage while alerting the world to the alleged tawdry and unsavory details of her troubled marriage.

The stunning announcement by Crystal Smith comes about a year-and-a-half after she returned to Ne-Yo and reconciled the marriage in November 2020.


Smith, whose maiden name is Renay, told her 650K Instagram fans that she can no longer lie or put on a charade about the state of their marriage.

“Eight years of lies and deception. Eight years of unknowingly sharing my life and husband with numerous women who sell their bodies to him unprotected … every last one of them! To say I’m heartbroken and disgusted is an understatement,” Smith penned.


“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. I gained three beautiful children out of this, but nothing else [except] wasted years and heartache. 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 former musical power couple announced their intentions to divorce back in 2017. But now the split appears to be permanent.
