Ne-Yo's wife Crystal Renay has accused him of cheating on her with "numerous" women.

The entrepreneur took to Instagram on Saturday to post a scathing message about the Closer hitmaker, also known as Shaffer Chimere Smith.

"Eight years. 8 years of lies and deception. 8 years of unknowingly sharing my life and my husband with numerous women who sell their bodies to him unprotected...every last one of them! To say I'm heartbroken and disgusted is an understatement," she wrote. "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. I choose me, I choose my happiness and health and my respect. I gained 3 beautiful children out of this but nothing else but wasted years and heartache."

Elsewhere in the post, Crystal begged social media followers to stop sending her videos of Ne-Yo.

"I ask that you all please stop sending me videos and information of him cheating because what he does is no longer my concern. I am not a victim," the 36-year-old continued. "I'm choosing to stand tall with my head held high. 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."

On Sunday, Ne-Yo issued a statement via Twitter in which he asked for privacy but did not address Crystal's allegations.

"For the sake of our children, my family and I will work through our challenges behind closed doors," the 42-year-old stated. "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 Crystal wed in January 2016, but after around four years of marriage, the Miss Independent singer filed for divorce. However, the star quickly withdrew the petition and the pair rekindled their romance during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Ne-Yo and Crystal renewed their wedding vows during a ceremony in Las Vegas last April.

They share three children together: sons Shaffer Jr., six, and Roman, four, and daughter Isabella, whom they welcomed in June 2021 after their reunion. He also has daughter Madilyn, 11, and son Mason, 10, with ex-girlfriend Monyetta Shaw.
