According to his recent divorce demands, Ne-Yo doesn’t want his ex-wife Crystal Smithtoo comfortable feeling unemployed or living in a family home.
The singer denied that the mother of his three children received alimony after she filed for divorce on August 1 and demanded alimony. Radar reports that Ne-Yo objected to Krystal’s requests for temporary and permanent child support, as well as primary custody of their children, in court documents.

In her petition, Krystal, 36, said she “has the right to divorce [Ne-Yo] on the grounds that the marriage is irrevocably annulled without any hope of reconciliation. She added, “[Ne-Yo] committed an act of adultery.” Krystal also accused her ex of having a child with another woman.
Krystal demanded temporary and permanent alimony from Ne-Yo for both the child and the spouse. She told the court that she relied on the singer’s income to pay her bills, as they agreed that she would not work.
“[Crystal] asks that [Ne-Yo] be solely responsible for any and all debts and liabilities independently acquired [Ne-Yo] and what [Ne-Yo] Keep [Crystal] harmless to any such debts or obligations,” the statement said.
The petition also required Ne-Yo to hand over $25,000 to cover her legal fees. However, her estranged husband does not see this happening at all.

In her response to Krystal’s divorce petition, Ne-Yo reportedly wants joint legal and physical custody of their three children. The publication reported that the music producer agreed to pay child support but mocked the spousal support. The singer admitted to being an established professional artist, while Krystal was “sometimes technically unemployed during her marriage.” Ne-Yo said that Krystal’s image and earning potential “has been greatly improved by her personal connection to the defendant and his career.”
“[Crystal] have a significant ability to secure a stable and permanent job now and after the dissolution of the marriage.”
The singer also wants Krystal to pay legal fees. Ne-Yo added that he is “an active and loving father to his children.”
“[Ne-Yo] claims that he is financially, physically and emotionally capable of serving as joint physical guardian of the parties’ three minor children, along with [Crystal]”.
In addition, Ne-Yo demanded exclusive use of the family home in Georgia, as “he is solely responsible for the mortgage and maintenance of this property from the date of purchase.” The singer said that during the marriage, he purchased three properties and maintained them on his own.
Ne-Yo wants the judge to consider Crystal’s “bad faith” in dividing the assets.
