Ne-Yo objects Crystal Smith’s request for alimony.

According to reports, court documents reveal that Ne-Yo wants joint custody of the three children he shares with Crystal. It also says that he agreed that his marriage is “irretrievably broken with no hope of reconciliation.” Documents also stated that the singer/songwriter has denied the request to pay alimony and just wants to have joint legal and physical custody. The documents also say, “[Ne-Yo] asserts that he is financially, physically, and emotionally capable of serving as a joint physical custodian of the parties’ three minor children alongside Crystal.” 

Ne-Yo also reportedly demands their Georgia mansion as “he has been solely responsible for the mortgage and maintenance of this property since the date of purchase.” He claims that throughout the course of their marriage, he purchases three properties and kept up with maintenance by himself. 

On the other hand, Crystal Smith is claiming that since she separated from Ne-Yo she has been taking care of their three children and is looking to gain primary physical custody, joint legal custody. In a petition written on her behalf, Smith believes that she “is entitled to a divorce from Ne-Yo upon the ground that the marriage is irretrievably broken with no hope for reconciliation as Ne-Yo has committed the act of adultery.”
