On Her Angelina Jolie: Ne-Yo’s Girl Adopts 48 African Children

February 15, 2012  |  


At least when Ne-Yo and his girlfriend spend stacks on foolishness like strippers at Magic City they round it out by doing good. Monyetta Shaw, Ne-Yo’s girl and the mother of his two children, has reportedly agreed to adopt 48 children from the African nation of Swaziland.

The children won’t actually be living with the couple, but Monyetta did agree to pay each child’s living expenses for an entire year, which adds up to about $20,000. The sponsorship is apart of Beyond the Game, a charitable organization founded by “Football Wife” Chanita Foster who is the former wife of Georgia Bulldog George Foster. It’s nice to know Monyetta isn’t just riding off of being Ne-Yo’s girl. Can’t get mad at that.

      Right?!? Why do celebrities go to third world countries and pay for their living expenses and 1 out of 8 children in america are malnourished? I guess…

    Adopt? Really, it’s more like foster care.
