Ne-Yo will pay his ex-wife Crystal Renay a $1.6 million lump sum after the couple finalized their divorce late last month according to TMZ.
According to People, the R&B singer, whose real name is Shaffer Smith, and Renay were granted a “total divorce” on January 26.
According to TMZ, which obtained court documents outlining the agreement, Ne-Yo will pay Renay $20,000 for moving expenses and $150,000 to purchase a new car in addition to the $1.6 million.
Renay will also retain one of their four Georgia homes, while receiving $12,000 per month in child support for their three children, over whom they will share custody, according to the publication.
Finally, TMZ reports that Ne-Yo will pay Renay $5,000 per month in alimony for the next three years.
Renay and Ne-Yo married in 2016, but Renay filed for divorce in August 2021, accusing the “So Sick” singer of having a child with another woman.
“It’s an understatement to say I’m heartbroken and disgusted. Renay wrote on Instagram at the time.
“To ask me to stay and accept it is absolutely insane,” according to The Independent. “A narcissist’s mind. I will no longer deceive the public or pretend that something isn’t what it is.”
“gained three beautiful children, but nothing but wasted years and heartache,” she added. “I am not a helpless victim.
I’ve made the decision to I’m going to choose to stand tall and with my head held high. If someone cannot love you as you deserve, it is your responsibility to love yourself. I have no hatred in my heart. “I only wish him the best.”
Ne-Yo issued a statement on Twitter in response to Renay’s allegations.
“For the sake of our children, my family and I will work through our challenges behind closed doors,” he wrote.
“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.”
