Ne-Yo and his ex-wife Crystal Smith’s divorce has been finalized, the court ruled that Ne-Yo will keep three homes and Crystal gets one, but Ne-Yo needs to pay a one-time $1.6 million to buy out Crystal’s shares in other properties.
Divorce awards also involve alimony, child support, child custody, and assets such as property and the family car.
According to TMZ, Ne-Yo will keep 3 of the family cars out of their 4 houses, a 2022 Bentley Bentayga, while Crystal will keep one of the houses in Georgia. Ne-Yo will have to pay $20,000 in moving expenses and balance their real estate holdings. Instead of dividing the property, the couple agreed to a lump sum payment from Ne-Yo.
While he’s keeping the Bentley, Ne-Yo must also finance his wife’s $150,000 purchase of her new car. Ne-Yo is also required to pay child support and alimony. The court ordered him to pay his ex-wife Crystal $12,000 a month in child support for their 6-year-old Schafer, 4-year-old Roman and 17-month-old Isabella.
The former couple will also have joint custody, but Ne-Yo will also have to pay their tuition.
As for alimony, Ne-Yo will pay $5,000 a month in alimony for the next three years. The couple also agree that they will not have a new romantic partner around their minor children unless they are married or engaged to that partner or otherwise have the other’s permission.
Crystal Renay filed for divorce from Ne-Yo last August after slamming the “So Sick” artist for cheating on her multiple times during their eight years together. When she filed for divorce, she claimed that Ne-Yo fathered a child with another woman. Ne-Yo recently shared that baby with the world. Sources say that baby’s mother is also pregnant again for Ne-Yo.
“8 years. 8 years of lies and deceit. 8 years of unknowingly sharing my life and my husband’s life with countless women who sold him their bodies unprotected… EVERYONE!” Crystal shared a lengthy Instagram story.
“To say I’m heartbroken and disgusted is an understatement. It’s absolutely insane for me to stay and accept it. Narcissist mentality. I’m not going to lie to the public anymore or pretend it’s not the truth. I choose me, I choose My happiness and health and my respect, from which I have gained 3 beautiful children, but nothing but wasted years and heartache,” she said.
