Say It Ain’t So! Ne-Yo Unveils His Cheating Past


Shaffer Chimere Smith, Jr. better known as R&B heartthrob , Ne-Yo, admits in a recent interview with More! magazine that he has cheated on ex-girlfriends, on multiple occasions.  The 31-year old singer states,

“Talking about men cheating, I have to say, each to their own,” he says. “I can’t say they’re all bad as I’ve been guilty of it myself.

“There are times when I know I’m not the nicest person, when I know what I’m doing is wrong. But then sometimes you have to figure out what’s really important to you.”

Ne-Yo recently became a father to an 8-month old daughter named Madilyn, with on-again off-again girlfriend Monyetta Shaw.  The singer remarks that his new role has given him a new perspective on what love actually means for him, personally.  Ne-Yo goes on to say,

“I’ve been in love before, but this feels like nothing I’ve ever felt,” he says. “It’s like being in love for the first time.”

The Def Jam recording artist has stated in recent interviews about his relationship with Shaw as being purely platonic – he has made statements referring to her as a ‘friend’ who has carried his child, but knows that he has commitment issues; she does not mind him being involved with other women. Yikes.  Guess the story behind his videos for “Part Of The List” followed by “Mad” have some truth to it…

Ne-Yo is currently working on his fifth studio album, Love and Passion, due for release this September.
