Ne-Yo (43) and Crystal Renay are now separate people on paper. The entrepreneur had already wanted to file for divorce from the singer in 2020. However, after they pulled themselves together and remarried, she accused her husband of cheating on her. Another divorce application followed in August 2022, which this time should also be carried out. A major bone of contention was custody. But now Ne-Yo and Crystal have finally come to an agreement: the divorce is officially over!
According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Ne-Yo will have to pay his ex a lump sum of $1.6 million to split their real estate holdings. The “So Sick” hitmaker is said to be keeping three of their four homes and one Bentley. In order for Crystal to be able to buy a new car, he has to transfer her an additional 150,000 US dollars, around 136,000 euros. In addition, there is an alimony of 5,000 dollars, approx. 4,500 euros per month. In addition, a monthly maintenance payment of 12,000 US dollars, almost 11,000 euros, is due to his ex-wife. The two will share custody of their three children together. The 43-year-old also has to pay for their school costs.
When it comes to custody, Ne-Yo and Crystal have an additional agreement: Neither of them can let a romantic partner near their minor children unless they get engaged, get married, or get the other’s consent.
