Ne-Yo’s ex-fiancee Monyetta Shaw’s new book “Bigger Than Me” (out now) is revealing her side of the story regarding Ne-Yo forcing her to get her tubes tied, only to started dating someone else (his now wife, IG model Crystal Renay) soon after.
In the book, Shaw reveals the R&B singer agreed to get a vasectomy when she got her tubes tied in 2011, but she found out he didn’t go through with it. She says her and Ne-Yo decided their family was complete after the birth of their son Mason and daughter, Madilyn.
The New York Post shares excerpts from the book, where she dishes on how they met, how he proposed, and her version of the timeline of events.
“I just assumed Ne-Yo had followed through and had gotten the vasectomy. I trusted him so much that it never even crossed my mind that he hadn’t gone through with it,” she writes. She says that just two months before their nuptials, Ne-To came to her and said he wanted to break things off, saying he didn’t want to be monogamous. “A week after our split, Ne-Yo posted the news on Instagram,” she wrote.
A larger excerpt reads:
“Then, in 2014, when Ne-Yo released his music video for “Money Can’t Buy,” I found out that he was dating the video’s vixen, Crystal Renay, known for posting racy photos on Instagram. My world came crashing down all over again: I had tried to understand that he didn’t want to be monogamous, but then he went and found a different woman whom he was ready to be monogamous with? It hurts to see them parade their love on social media. They recently married, on Feb. 20, and Crystal gave birth to their first son. She seems like a nice girl, but I would be worried if I were she. How does she know that he’s not going to do the same thing to her that he did to me? Adding to the pain is knowing that if I find another man to love, I may not be able to start a family with him. I’m too scared to go to a doctor to find out if there’s anything they can do about it. Because I do want to get married someday, and if my future husband does not have kids, I will want to have his children….”
But overall, Shaw sees a bright spot in all of this: that her story has been able to help women in similiar situations. “I’m glad that I’ve been able to counsel some of them as they navigate their own hardships,” she said.
