The Miss Independent singer added, ‘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.’
Ne-Yo whose real name is Shaffer Chimere Smith’s statement comes a day after his spouse accused him of being unfaithful during their relationship.
Renay took to Instagram on 30th July Saturday to share her feelings.
The 36-year-old model said, ‘8 years of life and disappointment. 8 years of unknowingly sharing my life and husband with numerous women who sell their bodies to him unprotected … every last one of them.’
Furthermore, she continued, ‘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.’
Renay went on to mention, ‘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.’
