Being dragged to court by baby mamas is no strange occurence to men in the entertainment industry. In fact, it almost seems as if having baby mama drama is some type of clause that is built into their talent contracts. But, having drama with an almost baby mama? Well, that’s something new; something that singer and songwriter Ne-Yo can tell us all about.
TMZ is reporting that a woman named Jesseca White is threatening to sue her ex-boyfriend, Ne-Yo due to issues relating to a child that the two almost had together. How do two people almost have a child you ask? Well it seems that back when Jesseca and Ne-Yo were an item, Jesseca gave birth to a child whom Ne-Yo believed was his. In 2009 he found out that it wasn’t, but only after paying Jesseca $575,000 in a settlement agreement and signing the baby’s birth certificate did she confess that the child wasn’t his.
Considering how ugly the situation was they both agreed to a confidentiality clause, which prohibited them from ever publicly discussing what happened. They both did a pretty decent job upholding their ends of the bargain, until now that is. Ne-Yo recently opened up regarding his bout with baby mama drama during his September 2012 VH1 Behind The Music special where he expressed how distraught and heartbroken he was over the paternity nightmare.
Since the airing of the show, Jesseca has hired high-profile attorney Gloria Allred and is threatening to file a lawsuit against the singer claiming that his revelation during the special was defaming to her because it depicted her as “a harlot who lied, broke his heart and then vanished” and has subjected her to much ridicule and harassment. A letter from the attorney also claims that Jesseca has been so distraught and mentally tortured over Ne-Yo’s comments that she has been unable to work, had to file for state aid and is even suffering from intense “nausea, vomiting and hair loss”.
Catch this though, she’s claiming that she hopes she and Ne-Yo can settle things amicably in court, otherwise she has no choice but to sue him.
This is probably one of the most off-the-wall things I’ve ever heard, but I’m sure it isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Honestly, it seems like she should be the one paying Ne-Yo, not the other way around. But, a binding contract is a binding contract and if Ne-Yo actually agreed to never go public with the information, then he just may have to pay up.
What do you think? Is Jesseca completely delusional and looking for another come-up or was Ne-Yo wrong for publicly discussing the situation after he agreed not to?
