Ne-Yo also promised to keep their 2022 Bentley Bentayga while giving Renay a $150,000 payment to purchase a new vehicle, according to the site. The 43-year-old “So Sick” singer will also cover any education-related costs and pay Renay, 36, $12,000 a month in child support for the three children they share. They decided to share parenting time with the kids. Finally, for the following three years, Ne-Yo will pay Renay $5,000 every month in alimony.
Page Six has requested the settlement paperwork from the court. After openly accusing Ne-Yo of infidelity in August 2022, Renay filed for divorce.
“To say I’m heartbroken and disgusted is an understatement. To ask me to stay and accept it is absolutely insane,” she said at the time. “The mentality of a narcissist. I will no longer lie to the public or pretend that this is something it isn’t. ”
Renay claimed that Ne-Yo, whose true name is Shaffer Chimere Smith, had fathered a kid with a different woman, whom she referred to as his “paramour,” in the divorce application.
