HOLLYWOOD—If you’re wealthy and you get divorced, you are paying, either child support, alimony or both. When a celebrity relationship ends, a scandal can typically ensue. Ne-Yo will pay his ex-wife a lump sum of $1.6 million lump after the pair finalized their divorce, according to published reports.

The R&B star and Crystal Smith were granted a “total divorce” on January 26. The $1.6 million lump sum is to balance out their real estate holdings after the pair finalized their divorce last month. The R&B star, whose real name is Shaffer Smith, and Renay were granted a “total divorce.” Ne-Yo will also pay Renay $20,000 for moving expenses and $150,000 so that she can buy a new car. The ex-wife will also keep one of their four homes in Georgia, while she will receive $12,000 a month in child support for their three children, of whom they will share custody.

In addition, Ne-Yo will give Renay $5,000 per month in alimony for the next three years. They were married back in 2016, however, Renay filed for divorce in August 2021 after she publicly accused the “So Sick” singer of having a child with another woman. In a statement on Instagram, she wrote, “To say I’m heartbroken and disgusted is an understatement. 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 gained 3 beautiful children out of this but nothing else but wasted years and heartache,” she added. “I am not a victim. 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.”

Ne-Yo responded on Twitter by saying, “For the sake of our children, my family and I will work through our challenges behind closed doors.  Personal matters are not to be addressed and dissected in public forums. I simply ask that you please respect me and my family’s privacy at this time.”
