American singer Ne-Yo has been labelled a cheater by his wife Crystal Smith. The skincare entrepreneur took to Instagram to put her husband on blast. 

"8 Years. 8 Years of lies and deception. 8 years of unknowingly sharing my life and 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.

Crystal, who is the mother of three of Ne-Yo's children, also described him as 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."

Ney-Yo tied the knot in February 2016. Four years later, the 42-year-old announced that they were getting a divorce.

The pair reconciled during the pandemic. 

"Before the quarantine happened, we were definitely talking divorce. The quarantine kind of forced us to sit still [and] block out the noise from the world. You know the world can get very, very loud, and we tend to let the world’s opinion mean more in certain situations than it should. I was very much guilty of that as well," he told 'The Talk' in 2020. 

Earlier this year, Ne-Yo and Crystal renewed their vows in a romantic Las Vegas ceremony.

Ne-Yo - who will soon go on tour for his new album, 'Self Explanatory' - released a statement following his wife's shocking post. He has asked people to respect his family's privacy. 

"For the sake of our children, my family and I will work through our challenges behind closed doors. 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," he wrote on Twitter
