Ne-Yo announced in February that he had been planning to divorce his wife Crystal Renay. However, the singer's marriage was saved by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The So Sick hitmaker says the lockdown measures imposed due to the global pandemic have allowed them time to work on their differences.
BANG Showbiz reports that Ne-Yo and the mother of his two kids, Shaffer Jr and Roman, will not be divorcing any more thanks to the pandemic.
"The whole quarantine thing was kind of a blessing. It allowed me the time to lock back in with [my family].
"Before the quarantine happened, we were definitely talking divorce, and the quarantine forced us to sit still, block out the noise from the world — you know the world can get very, very loud, and we tend to let the world’s opinion mean more in certain situations than it should."
The publication reports that Ne-Yo, who also has kids Madilyn and Mason from a previous relationship, admitted he and Crystal had "uncomfortable" conversations which were "blatantly, painfully, brutally honest" to resolve their issues, and while he admitted such "difficult" discussions can be harmful, they found them beneficial.
According to BANG Showbiz, the star told The Talk that:
"We’re actually stronger now than we were before. Now we feel like we can really talk to each other."
Briefly.co.za reported that legendary hip-hop producer Dr Dre is set to lose half of his nett worth as his wife has filed for a divorce. Dre and Nicole Young have been married for 24 years and reportedly did not sign any prenuptial agreement when they got married.
Nicole reportedly cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the separation.
According to TMZ sources close to Nicole, she is demanding $400 million of Dre's nett worth which is estimated to be $800 million.
