Has Ne-Yo Finally Moved Out?


So it looks like Monyetta is not the only one who’s moving on with her relationship with her ex-fiancee Ne-Yo. In a clip from an episode of “Atlanta Exes,” Monyetta and Christina remove pictures of the former couple from the hallway. 

And now, Ne-Yo may finally be moving out of the home, his home, that he shared with Monyetta.

TMZ reported that Ne-Yo recently purchased a 5 bedroom, 3 bath house for $520k in Alpharetta, Georgia.

Actually, the new property, was listed as a “hobby farm” and sits on 2 acres of farmland.

Wonder if Ne-Yo is going to start growing his own crops.

But this place could also be for another relative. In 2012, the singer bought his mother a $550k house. Maybe he has someone else, he’d like to hook up.

Whoever it’s for, we’re hoping Ne-Yo is making a move out of that old space with Monyetta. It’s all a bit too complicated.

Ne-Yo and Monyetta Reunite

Despite having broken up a little over a month ago, Ne-Yo and Monyetta Shaw, the singer’s ex-fiancee, were a vision of family bliss in the Hamptons this weekend. On Saturday night, Ne-Yo’s Compound Foundation held their second annual “Fostering a Legacy” gala at the residence of Sprint CEO Bill Nuti, and on Sunday the festivities continued at a farewell brunch at the Surf Lodge to thank all supporters and donators from this year’s benefit. There by Ne-Yo’s side the entire time was the mother of his children and his two little munchkins, Madilyn Grace Smith and Mason Evan Smith.

We had a chance to chat with Ne-Yo while he was on the red carpet for his event and since we were there for a charitable cause we asked the singer/songwriter how he feels about celebrities who are criticized for not giving back enough. Here’s what he said:

“I  feel like those who get criticized for not doing [enough] deserve it. I feel like if you are a celebrity, you are a person who has been blessed with fortune or fame or whatever the case, and you are supposed to use  that to help somebody else. That’s what it’s supposed to be. You’re given a blessing to be able to give a blessing to another person. So if you decide to be selfish with it, you’re probably not going to have it too long.”


Though Ne-Yo said he wasn’t abreast of the ongoing drama between Jay-Z and Harry Belafonte, we couldn’t help but think of that situation as he addressed the responsibility celebrities have to give back. Still, there’s no sense in singling out one rapper who is likely doing more than the public knows when there are plenty more like him who we rarely hear of giving back to their community in any way. What matters is the man of the night is fully using his celebrity to make a difference in the lives of adopted children and we’re even more excited to see Ne-Yo and Monyetta supporting one another for the sake of their kids.

What do you think about Ne-Yo’s take on celebs and social responsibility?

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

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.

Rack City B! Ne-Yo and Fiancee Drop At Least $3K at Strip Club

Being booed up with your fiancee/baby daddy in the club is cool. Being booed up in a strip club after making it rain on naked women? I’ll pass. But for Ne-Yo and his girl, that was a great way to pass the time Saturday night.

Over the weekend the two went to Magic City and reportedly spent between $3,000 and $5,000 on dancers. At one point the club floor was nearly covered in ones that Ne-Yo and Monyetta spent on the ladies. You can’t even blame this one on the alcohol either, Ne-yo supposedly had absolutely nothing to drink and spent most of his time between midnight and 2 am keeping to himself in VIP.

They say it ain’t trickin’ if you got it but I would’ve preferred to spend time (and money) with my man differently. But, to each his or her own.

Check out the full picture slide show of their night out on TMZ. Warning: It’s raunchy.

What do you think about these two? Do you go to the strip club with your man?
