Ne-Yo Being Sued By Ex-Girlfriend Jesseca White For Defamation [Video]

Ne-Yo’s ex-girlfriend is suing the singer for defamation after he breached an agreement not to go public with information about their relationship.

In 2009, Jesseca White and Ne-Yo reached a $575,000 settlement agreement stemming from White’s pregnancy while the two were dating. White gave birth to a baby boy named Chimere in 2005, and Ne-Yo was originally listed as the child’s father, but his name was later removed from the birth certificate when White revealed that the child wasn’t his.

In September 2012, Ne-Yo did a Behind the Music special on VH1 in which he discussed his relationship with White, breaking the confidentiality clause of their agreement.

Now White has hired Gloria Allred, who often takes on high-profile discrimination cases, as her attorney. Allred is claiming that Ne-Yo painted an unfair picture of her client, portraying her as a liar who broke Ne-Yo’s heart and disappeared.

Allred said White has been “beset by nausea, vomiting, and hair loss” because of what Ne-Yo said about her in the special.

White has asked the “One in a Million” singer — whose real name is Shaffer Chimere Smith — to settle the matter outside of court, but he has yet to respond.

Ne-Yo has said that he wasn’t using the special to bash his ex-girlfriend. He wrote:

Ne-Yo now has two children with fiancée Monyetta Shaw. Their daughter, Madilyn Grace Smith, was born November 12, 2010. The couple’s son, Mason Evan Smith, was born less than a year later on October 9, 2011.
