Foul Or Fair? Ne-Yo’s Wife Is Pregnant And His Ex-Fiancée Has Burned Tubes

Entertainment & Celebrities / Features / August 31, 2015

I bet Ne-Yo never expected the fallout that he received after announcing that not only is he married but his wife, Crystal Renay is pregnant.

Crystal Renay and Ne-Yo both shared their baby news announced on their Instagram pages.  Crystal wrote under a pic of Ne-Yo rubbing her baby bump:

“No matter what they say’ our Miracle is on the way and I couldn’t feel more blessed. You’re negativity means nothing to us (sic),” she wrote in the post caption, attached to a blown up picture of herself and Ne-Yo smiling. “We are happy, we’ve BEEN happy and will always be HAPPY no matter what they say Thanking The Lord above for those who know my story know what this absolute miracle means to me. #BabySmith #Neyo #CrystalRenay #GodsChild #WasAlwaysInHisTime #BlindFaith thank you all who are happy for our happy.”


Ne-Yo posted a pic of Crystal holding the pic that she posted with the caption, “Surprise!”

It seems that Ne-Yo’s fans were indeed surprised and totally went in on him because he and his ex-fiancée and mother of his 4-year-old daughter Madilyn Grace Smith and 3-year-old son Mason Evan Smith,  Monyetta Shaw, who currently stars on VH1’s Atlanta Exes decided together not to have anymore children and she had her tubes burned.

Shaw has been very open about her relationship with Ne-Yo, who she started dating in 2009 and broke up with in 2013, two years after their initial engagement. She has publicly stated that she got her tubes burned because they didn’t want any more children…

“As a family we decided, we didn’t want any more kids. Once we learned that our second child was a boy we were in the office high-fiving like ‘Yes. We’re done, The doctor hit us with the option.”

“If we done, we done, we decided we didn’t want anymore kids,WE (emphasize on the WE) decided we didn’t want anymore kids.”


The screwed up thing about the situation is that now that Monyetta and Ne-Yo are no longer together, she can move on but can not have anymore children but Ne-yo can not only move on but can have more children.  Why didn’t he get snipped, why did she have to have her tubes burned?  Because all of this is public knowledge, Ne-Yo’s “Good Guy” image has been shot to hell and his fans … former fans, didn’t hold back letting him know how foul he is on Instagram…

illmakehimdoit “Shaffer bald head a** ain’t sh*t. He talked that girl into getting her tubes tied. Y’all, she may have been stupid but she did this because she felt like this big ghetto mr.clean head a** n*gga was the one. She can’t have anymore kids, that’s fckd up. Neyo you big lip bastard, you ain’t sh*t and your new life ain’t gon be sh*t. I hope your baby mama put that ciely curse on you.”

lalalovelyon3@fairy__86  Right! When she said that sh*t on Atlanta Exes I saw some sh*t like this happening. He’s free to move on with his life but even if she meets and falls in love with another man she won’t be able to give him any children. Smh #dummy”

cinnamonstaxx “This ninja is still making babies and not marrying the mother’s . He’ll get rid of her in 2 years and she ‘ll be on some reality show titled Baby mothers of Atl crying about the breakup …Bye Chile this ain’t no celebration, celebrate when he marries ya a**”

Ne-Yo has tried to defended himself on Instagram by saying,

“I’ve made my apologies to the people I feel I wronged. I was forgiven by those people. Anybody else passing judgment on me for my past mistakes and immaturities is more than welcome to it.

An apology is one thing but I have to say that he is still foul.  An apology can’t reverse having your tubes burned.  An apology can’t really make things better for Monyetta.  But on the other hand, let me play Devil’s Advocate and say that Monyetta made the decision, as well and even though we believe that some relationships will last forever, when they don’t, we have to live with the decisions that we made and good or bad, Monyetta has to live with that decision.

I want to know what you think?

Is it foul or fair that Ne-Yo is moving on with his life and having a baby?

Should a woman ever make a decision to have her tubes burned when she isn’t even married?

Yeah, this is FOR SURE, jacked up. But it’s so crazy when you date a celeb, from what I’ve heard. I mean, I think she should have put herself first on that one, but there was just no way she could have known. It’s just a really shitty situation. Ne-yo wrong for that. I feel really bad for her, but unfortunately, life goes on. At least she gets alimony and CS tho! Cry all the way to the bank, girl!

    on August 31, 2015

    LMAO at crying all the way to the bank! I agree it is a totally messed up situation and when you are in love and engaged, you believe that it is forever. He should have been the one to be snipped, though. I don’t know but I think she should get some extra money for this! HA!

    I totally think that she should have put herself first. I think women get so caught up with the “celebrity” lifestyle and assume that everything will work itself out and then something like this happens. I would be crying to the bank, too!! HA!!

As a mother who had her tubes tied, as part of a JOINT decision between my ex-husband and myself, it’s really sad to me that another woman has to go through this. I know that at the time of getting my tubal, I didn’t want any more kids. I had had two, I was done. A couple years down the line, I’m not so sure it was the right decision. I’m divorced and I kind of hate that I don’t have the option to have more babies if I get married again. It’s sad. It’s a hard decision and I don’t think anyone should make such a final decision — even if you’re married — when things can always change. But, there is always surrogacy and/or adoption!

    on August 31, 2015

    Heather, I agree that this is a sad situation. Like you said, it’s a hard decision and although we never know how our lives will turn out. Surrogacy and adoption are indeed options, but ones that come with so many risks.

    on September 17, 2015

    Heather, yes, there are other options out there but it seems that she made such a permanent decision with a man who isn’t even her husband. I guess we all live and we learn, right?

She didn’t have to have her tubes burned just because they both decided they didn’t want any more children. She could have simply had them tied. Science would have allowed them to be untied (Tubal Ligation Reversal) if she wanted to have more kids in the future. So, I’m sorry to say that is on her. She should have looked into other options. Hell, they could have just used protection for the remainder of their relationship.

HE probably did the research and told her that “burning” was the better option for them. But, even if he did, she’s still at fault for not looking into it herself.

Relationships fail, people move on. I say he is wrong for misleading her (IF he did), but if they are no longer together, why can’t he have children with his new wife…which he is apparently doing.

    This is true, Camilani. It just sucks all the way around.
