Ne-Yo Living With Estranged Wife Crystal Smith Following Divorce Drama

By Ryan Naumann

Ne-Yo is currently locked up at home with his estranged wife Crystal Smith and kids, despite filing for divorce only weeks ago.

Crystal posted a video on her Instagram live showing her at home. She is seen talking to one of her sons. In the background, you can hear Ne-Yo’s other kid say, “Daddy. Daddy. Are you ready?” and you can hear the singer respond. Crystal previously mentioned Ne-Yo was with her during the lockdown.

The time together must be interesting given Ne-Yo moved to legally end their marriage last month.

Earlier this month, Bossip reported Ne-Yo filed a divorce petition at the end of March.

The divorce, which was filed in Georgia, said the marriage was “irretrievably broken.” The singer said there was no hope of reconciliation for the relationship.

Ne-Yo requested joint legal custody of their two kid and asked the court to enforce the terms of their prenuptial agreement. The pair reportedly signed a prenup before getting married which covered everything from custody to child support. Days after filing the divorce, Ne-Yo informed the court he was withdrawing the petition and dismissing his case. The decision means the two are still legally married.


Crystal spoke out after the news broke of the divorce petition being filed and withdrawn. She posted a photo with her finger to her mouth captioned, “Sssssshhh. You’re telling my business wrong.” Ne-Yo approved of the message and quickly liked the photo.

As The Blast first reported, Ne-Yo and Crystal were having problems for months prior to their breakup. The two have been married since 2016 and share two kids, Shaffer Smith Jr (born 2016) and Roman Alexander-Raj Smith (2018).

Ne-Yo previously spoke about the split, “There’s nothing bad to say about her. She’s a fantastic woman, she’s the mother of my children. She’s always gonna be there. I will always respect that.” The singer has spoken highly of Crystal after breaking up. He revealed she even returned her wedding ring.
