Atlanta, GA

Ne-Yo has reached a settlement with his ex-wife, Crystal Renay, in their divorce that will see him pay her nearly $2 million.

According to TMZ, the R&B dignitary and Renay recently finalized their divorce, with Ne-Yo forking over a lump sum of $1.6 million. She is also taking one of their four Georgia homes and he’s covering $20,000 worth of moving expenses.

Additionally, Renay claimed she needs a new car and Ne-Yo will be paying for that to the tune of a $150,000 check to purchase whichever vehicle she pleases, while the “So Sick” singer has opted to keep their 2022 Bentley Bentayga.

The former couple have three children together so Ne-Yo is coughing up $12,000 in monthly child support payments, while also covering the kids’ school expenses and tacking on another $5,000 monthly check for alimony for the next three years.

Both Ne-Yo and Renay will have joint custody and agreed in writing to not bring any romantic partners around their children unless signed off on by the other party or they’re engaged/married.

Renay filed for divorce in August 2022, just four months after they renewed their vows. She claimed that Ne-Yo had cheated on her “numerous times” and even secretly fathered a child with another woman during their eight-year marriage.

“8 years of lies and deception,” she wrote in a scathing Instagram post last summer. “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.”

She added: “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 responded to the allegations by tweeting: “For the sake of our children, my family and I will work through our challenges behind closed doors. Personal matters are not meant to be addressed and dissected in public forums. I simply ask that you please respect me and my family’s privacy at this time.”

Renay was cornered by TMZ at Los Angeles International Airport shortly after filing for divorce, where she said there was no chance that they could patch things up.

“There are no chances,” she said when asked by the outlet if there was any hope of working things out. “We’re moving on to better lives. Certain things can be forgiven. God will forgive and so will I.”

When asked to clarify that she’d be able to forgive Ne-Yo, she said: “The Christian in me has to one day, but I’m okay.”
