Celebrity Net Worth reports that Ne-Yo has earned a net worth of $9 million. This figure is a combination of his work as a singer, songwriter, composer, dancer, actor, and record producer.
Ne-Yo is the writer behind Mario’s 2004 smash hit “Let Me Love You” and Beyonce’s 2006 mega-hit “Irreplaceable.” What’s more, Ne-Yo has three RIAA-certified platinum albums, including “In My Own Words,” the 2007 album “Because of You,” and the 2008 album “Year of the Gentlemen.”
Additionally, Ne-Yo has received three Grammy Awards: in 2007 for Best R&B Contemporary Performance, and in 2008 for Best Male Vocal Performance and Best R&B Song. The results speak for themselves when it comes to Ne-success Yo’s and longevity in the business.
Crystal Renay filed for divorce to Ne-Yo
The 31-year-old Crystal Renay filed for divorce on August 1, and HollywoodLife confirmed this. This came days after Ne-Yo responded to her accusations of cheating. The pair, who wed in February 2016, is apparently no longer together as a result of Crystal’s allegations. She alleged that the 42-year-old musician fathered a child with another woman.
The marriage is “irretrievably broken with no hope for reconciliation,” according to the documents Crystal filed, as per TMZ. They split up on July 22, 2022, according to additional information. Crystal took care of their children, Isabella Rose, 1, Roman Alexander-Raj, 4, and Shaffer Chimere Jr., 6, while they were apart.
According to reports, the former Crystal Smith is requesting sole physical custody and shared legal custody. She is also requesting both child support and alimony.
On July 30, the model accused Ne-Yo of infidelity for the first time in a since-deleted Instagram post. The next day, July 31, the singer gave his own message in response via Twitter. “For the sake of our children, my family and I will work through our challenges behind closed doors,” he stated. “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.”
Ne-Yo, whose actual name is Shaffer Chimere Smith, started dating the gorgeous model in 2015 and wed her the following year. In April, they celebrated the renewal of their vows with an extravagant Las Vegas party.
However, Crystal’s file still isn’t entirely unexpected since the songwriter disclosed their separation on the Private Talk With Alexis Texas podcast more than two years ago.
