It seems that Crystal Smith is "so sick" of love, as she has announced her official split from husband Ne-Yo on Instagram.
According to divorce documents, the socialite, 36, claimed that Ne-Yo, 42, “recently fathered a minor” with his “paramour” (meaning a secret lover outside of marriage), per Page Six.
The allegations come amid reports of extreme infidelity, after Smith shared a note to fans on Saturday explaining the current status of her relationship. "8 years of lies and deception. 8 years of unknowingly sharing my life and husband with numerous of women who sell their bodies to him unprotected… every last one of them!” her statement began.
She continued to put the "Miss Independent" singer on blast, recounting cheating claims which had been brought to the surface in the past during another split between the couple. “To say I’m heartbroken and disgusted is a understatement. To ask me to stay and accept it is absolutely insane. The mentality of a narcissist. I will no longer lie to the public or pretend that this is something it isn’t,” she wrote.
Shifting the focus onto herself, Smith added that going forward she'd be treating her own well-being as a priority. “I choose me, I choose my happiness and health and my respect," she expressed.
The socialite shares three children with the R&B singer: sons Shaffer Chimere, 6, and Roman Alexander-Raj, 4, in addition to 13-month-old daughter Isabella Rose. Though in an unfavorable situation with their father, Smith made sure to show appreciation for her motherhood journey as a result of her now former relationship. “I gained 3 beautiful children out of this but nothing else but wasted years and heartache,” she said.
Smith concluded the announcement with a neutral outlook, conveying a sense of finality: “If someone can’t love you the way you deserve then it’s up to you to love yourself. With no hate in my heart I wish him nothing but the best."
Following the social media statement, the "One in a Million" crooner responded with a tweet, explaining that he'd appreciate discretion regarding the matter. “For the sake of our children, my family and I will work through our challenges behind closed doors,” he wrote, adding, “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 and Smith were first married in 2016 and briefly separated after the Grammy winner filed for divorce in March 2020. He later withdrew the paperwork, claiming that they reconciled while quarantining during the COVID-19 pandemic.
