There is something about Crystal Renay that keeps Ne-Yo coming back.
Ne-Yo’s marriage to Crystal Smith might have been a wrap if it weren’t for the pandemic.
In February 2020, the “Let Me Love You” singer filed for divorce from the former reality TV star after four years of marriage, and welcoming two children — sons Shaffer and Roman.
“We were talking full-on divorce,” explained Neyo during an Oct. 28 appearance on “Good Morning Britain.” “It forced us to sit down and talk about our problems and re-connect with our kids,” he added.
Having become accustomed to being on the road and catching flights for performances, Ne-Yo welcomed embraces to the change in pace, as well as the opportunity to strengthen his bond with Smith. “The pandemic saved my marriage,” he said. “There’s only so much FaceTime you can do. In the pandemic, we lost a lot of people, but in my case it helped a lot of instances in my life. We had brutally honest conversations.”
With their romance rekindled, the couple surprised fans by calling off their divorce, which was then followed with the announcement they were expecting their third child, a daughter, Isabella, who was born in June 2021.
Ne-Yo and his wife, Crystal Renay are giving their marriage another go. TMZ reports the couple just walked down the aisle in an extravagant wedding in Las Vegas. The wedding took place on Sunday night (April 24) on a rooftop at Resorts World in Vegas. The room was reportedly filled with over 10,000 roses and TMZ was told it took three days to set up the beautiful reception. The cake was about 8 feet tall and had four different flavors.
The guest list included the couple’s close family as well as the Real House Wives Of Atlanta’s Nene Leakes, Tammy Rivera from Love & Hip Hop, and Melody Holt from Love & Marriage: Huntsville. According to TMZ, Ne-Yo also sang some of his hits for the guests and danced along with his bride.
The couple first said “I do” back in January 2016 and the singer filed for divorce in February 2020 before quickly withdrawing it. Since then, the couple has been working things out and it’s clearly going well! Ne-Yo popped the question for the second time on New Year’s Eve 2020. He’s also credited the pandemic for saving their marriage.
