Although he seemed to always slip on his tap dancing shoes whenever the topic of marriage came up, many of us had high hopes for Ne-Yo and his longtime girlfriend and children’s mother, Monyetta Shaw. The duo really seemed like they had what it takes to survive the Hollywood curse, but unfortunately, looks can be deceiving. The “Let Me Love You” singer recently took to his Instagram page to announce that he and the brown-skinned bombshell have decided to go their separate ways.
“Though fate had decided to split our romantic paths, know that I will ALWAYS love you. Forever your partner. Forever your friend. Forever my miracle,” the image read.
“I’ll always be there. ALWAYS.@incognemo Forever my miracle,” he added.
Although Ne-Yo’s announcement made it appear that the split was all butterflies and rainbows, fans bashed the 33-year-old R&B crooner for not dealing with the split privately.
“No worries! Got a gang of bad chicks!!!! #girlpower #betweekend #letsgo #goodtimes,” in a subliminal message beneath a photo that appears to be in response to Ne-Yo’s post.
Under normal circumstances, we would say that Ne-Yo’s message seems pretty black and white and leaves no room for speculation, but something seems awfully strange about his announcement. Some have implied that it’s a publicity stunt in an effort to promote his upcoming album, which is certainly seems like a possibility when you consider how poorly his last release did. But I suppose we will all have to stay tuned to find out what’s really going on.
