Ne-Yo and wife to be Crystal Renay are expecting a child, but the news hasn’t been received well by some of the artist’s fan base, after many believe the singer forced his ex-wife Monyetta Shaw to get her tubes tied when they were married. However Ne-Yo is not taking responsibility for his former wife’s surgical procedure, claiming that he did not thrust her in to it.
Rumours of the incident first surfaced last year as ‘Atlanta Exes’ star Monyetta Shaw, broke down in an episode over the concept of dating a guy who may want to have children with her. Shaw, who had her 4-year-old daughter Madilyn Smith and her 3-year-old son Mason Smith with Ne-Yo, said she was “still angry” about going through with the procedure.
Monyetta Shaw reveled her anguish upon hearing the news that Ne-Yo is having another child by taking to Instagram, she posted a picture of a permanent marker pen with the caption “classy but hurt”. Shaw was adamant in possessing some positivity on the matter though and she stated, “Choose today to let the peace of God rule in your heart. Have an attitude of gratitude”.
The singer of ‘Miss Independent’ and ‘Closer’ took to twitter to defend himself as he tweeted, “Clearing the air… I didn’t force Mo to tie her tubes. Mutual decision. And the procedure is reversible. #SheCanHaveKids #FromTheHorsesMouth”. Ne-Yo attempted to emphasise that the decision to undertake the sterilisation was nothing to do with him by posting a series of follow up tweets, one of which remarked “No 3rd party, no guessing, no BS #FromTheHorsesMouth”.
American reality television personality Toya Wright displayed her views as she inadvertently condemned Ne-Yo, she wrote, “The karma of messing up a good girl is the chick you end up with…”. Monyetta Shaw liked the tweet as she acknowledged the 32-year-old’s supportive perception. The news that Ne-Yo is expecting a child with Renay caused many of his fans to recall the controversy surrounding the singer’s former marriage, one of Ne-Yo’s followers tweeted, “Some women wish to have one child but cant & this guppy looking mf Ne-Yo tricked his ex into tying her tubes”.
