Ne-Yo Engaged and Expecting with Crystal Renay, Responds to Criticism

Ne-Yo took to Twitter Monday to clear up rumors and make a big announcement about his personal life.

“Clearing the air..@mscrystalrenay and I are ENGAGED to be married next year. And yes we are expecting. #FromTheHorsesMouth,” he tweeted.

Though the announcement is happy news for the couple, it brought some criticism from those who are familiar with Ne-Yo’s relationship ex-fiancée Monyetta Shaw.

The mother of the singer’s two children Madilyn, 4, and Mason, 3, starred on VH1’s reality show Atlanta Exes and shared her intimate details about their relationship. She shared she expected to be with her then-fiancé for the rest of her life and together they decided that two children was enough for them so they made the decision for her to get her tubes tied and burned so they wouldn’t have any more children. The couple later split in 2013 and Monyetta expressed her regret in an emotional scene.

Of course the news that Ne-Yo is now expecting with his new fiancée brought ire to others, causing the “So Sick” singer to quickly respond via social media.

“Clearing the air..I’m aware I don’t have to explain anything. I did it for my fans, my supporters. No BS and lies. #FromTheHorsesMouth,” he said before adding, “Clearing the air..I didn’t force Mo to tie her tubes. Mutual decision. And the procedure is reversible. #SheCanHaveKids #FromTheHorsesMouth.”

Ne-Yo and Monyetta dated from 2009 to 2013. He began dating Crystal Renay in early 2014.
