Singer-songwriter, Ne-Yo has confirmed that he and his wife, Crystal Renay have split and are getting a divorce after four years of marriage.
The 40-year-old announced the split during an episode of the Private Talk with Alexis Texas podcast.
"It’s slowly but surely becoming public knowledge that myself and my wife have decided to go ahead and get a divorce… It's not a sad thing, it's more of a us realizing, long story short, I'm never gonna talk bad about her. I'm not that person. There's nothing bad to say about her," the singer shared on the podcast.
Taking inspiration from the hardship, the sexy love singer penned his new single Pinky Ring.
"The song is about how I chose to handle the situation, the way that I chose to lift myself up and keep moving, as we all must do."
The couple wed in 2016 and share two sons, Shaffer, 3, and Roman, 20 months. Ne-Yo has a daughter Madilyn and son Mason, from his previous relationship with actress Monyetta Shaw.
