When VH1’s new series “Atlanta Exes” debuted, viewers were shocked to learn that although they broke up last summer, Ne-Yo and his ex-fiancée, Monyetta Shaw, are still residing under the same roof with their two children. What made the situation even more complex and bewildering is that the “So Sick” singer recently went public with his situationship with model Crystal Renay. Naturally, folks began to wonder how he would fair in his new situation considering that he’s still sharing a place with his ex. But Ne-Yo says that he’s already taken steps towards changing his awkward living situation.
“Currently, we’re in the same house, but I just recently bought a new house,” he explained on the Rickey Smiley Morning Show “We’re both getting to that stage in life where we’re moving on and seeing other people and whatnot. It just doesn’t make any sense for us to be in the same house anymore.”
He went on to explain why they remained under the same roof for so long.
“It was a matter of wanting my kids to grow up in one place, but I feel like my kids are going to be very mature and very smart. They’re going to understand: This is daddy’s house, this is mommy’s house. If we don’t make it a negative thing, then they won’t.”
Ne-Yo also attempted to silence speculation that he and Monyetta are still being intimate with one another.
“Monyetta Shaw is a beautiful woman. She has always been a beautiful woman, but as I said, this is my friend now. My partner. So nah, it ain’t that type of situation.”
Although he has yet to publicly claim her as his girlfriend, Ne-Yo and Crystal have been seeing each other since at least July.
