Ne-Yo has announced that he and Crystal Smith will be ending their marriage, and their divorce has inspired a new song that's helping him cope with this massive change.
On the latest episode Private Talk with Alexis Texas, Ne-Yo spoke about how he and Smith -- who he married in 2016, and is the mother to his sons Shaffer Chimere Smith, Jr. and Roman Alexander-Raj Smith -- will always be family but no longer husband and wife.
"Slowly but surely it's becoming public knowledge that myself and my wife have decided to go ahead and get a divorce," he told the podcast host. "It's not a sad thing... long story short, I'm never gonna talk bad about her; I'm not that person. There's nothing bad to say about her; she's a fantastic woman. She's the mother of my children. She's always gonna be that, and I will always respect her."
