Ne-Yo & Crystal Smith spends the day with their kids at Disney California Adventure

Singer-songwriter Ne-Yo and his pregnant wife Crystal Smith spent quality time with their children, son Shaffer Chimere Smith, Jr., 2, Mason Smith, 6, and Madilyn Smith, 7, at Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim, Calif.

Mason and Madilyn are Ne-Yo’s children by Atlanta socialite Monyetta Shaw. Crystal is happy to step into the role as the children’s stepmom.

Crystal was recently involved in a heated online controversy over the texture of her biological son’s hair. She upset her followers when she asked for suggestions for hair care products for her son’s tight coils. She regretted that he wasn’t “blessed with Hawaiian silky hair” like hers.

Crystal defended herself against colorism allegations. She said people were critical of her because they were jealous that Ne-Yo was with a mixed race woman.

They’re jealous “because they assume that I’m not mixed with black — I absolutely am — and they don’t like a black man being with white women or other races,” she said.

  • MissHarlem

    Only reason to watch that movie lol

  • KcoolMuziq
  • i troll it like i see it

    I recently read somewhere else that she also used to do porn. I’m convinced Neyo is a closeted down low gay man because he literally couldn’t care less who he’s married to.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    Every time I look at this girl I see her in her little porn video. This is who he chose to have in his children’s lives as a Mother figure!! Says a lot about him. She looks dirty…all the time….not just up top…but in every pic. She’s going and he is too and that’s what he wanted. I don’t see Monyetta doing heaux’s with him on a regular (maybe every now and then), but this one here seems like she’s always ready to buss down.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Jam sent me to the dermatologist years ago…it broke my neck out. Turned it black.

  • Kayke

    They make unfortunate looking girls. Hope this one is a boy….I’m just wornderjng how she’s pregnant and wearing a onesie. I have to go to the bathroom every 15 minutes, I can’t imagine having to completely undress to pee.

  • Kemi

    Ewwww they deserve each. The way he did Monyetta dirty he deserve every future misery he will get from this gold digging, ignorant, nasty azz, ugly bish!

  • Just this one time

    THIS really made me LOL!

  • i troll it like i see it

    I think he used Monyetta to become a father, perhaps at the time he even believed he didn’t want anymore kids, but those pesky gay rumors keep getting ramped up, so he picks up another woman, a ratchet Instagram thot, ” yeah that will show people I’m not into men!”

  • Kemi

    So true, probably she was blindsided. If I’m not mistaken, I thought he “came out” of the closet few years ago, but was quickly shot down. He’s suspect af…

  • Kimberly King

    It’s ALL in the smile. You can tell Neyo LOOOOOVES him some good ole fashion pipe. No one is jealous of her raggedy head ass…. Looks like Neyo has lost some weight or something.

  • Dollface

    I wonder what Monyetta did so bad that would make him leave her for this roach and for real play house and make a family with her She looks so much like a hood booger it’s not even funny.

  • Renee26

    She has a nasty attitude… Thinks people are jealous of her looks and heritage…. She ugly though (scratches head)

  • Renee26

    She wouldn’t shove him in the buns… So he had her tie her tubes so she couldn’t have other children then he moved on… DL bastard

  • Renee26

    I’m Dying!!!!

  • SweetTEE

    Please believe she is not happy playing mother to those two nappy headed, darker than a brown bag children. And since she’s designing this mixed kids hair line, she should have put some moisturizer or olive oil in her babies hair- but she doesnt know bout that cause mixed girls dont need it *side eye*

    I cant stand her ass.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    VERY ugly. Looks like an anteater.

  • Tena

    He’s gay, and she’s a ghetto hood rat. Absolutely nothing to be jealous about.

  • Tena

    Lol

  • Indies beauty

    I like Crystal but she has her moments.

  • Tena

    Really?? Links please.

  • Diva_woman

    It be the ugly light-skinned women that have the worst attitudes. Her and Hazel E swear folks dont like them because they’re light-skinned. No hun its because you ignorant, ugly, and tacky af, thats all.

  • Dollface

    Geesh that’s a mouthful ? don’t know how much of it is true. I didn’t even know she had a sex tape as I don’t keep up with Ne-Yo scandals, but she looks stank. She looks stank from a every day girl prospective, I can only imagine how industry folk see her and now him. Not only did he wife this nasty looking ho, but he has put two babies in her. I don’t know what that man does in the bedroom, but clearly he has some issues. I mean from the looks of things he don’t even know his worth or how to allocate value.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    ???????????

  • imright

    ??? funny lookin…all of them

  • Cali

    She’s so masculine

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    She looks like she wreaks of 1000 bloody asses.

  • SumthinSweeter

    she looks real hood-rat-ish

  • Applebum

    She’s a lesbian and he’s ghey. We seen that weak pörn tape. They’re bearding for each other.

  • Marlika

    Crystal always looks so ?? and it looks like her breath stranks. ??

  • Lushus

    Please report to TIMEOUT!!!! I just died!

  • Lushus

    Yall know she says she’s a celebrity chef and philanthropist so she has her own money *giggles* The only celeb she cooks for is Ne-yo though so I guess it counts a lil bit and technically his money is her money though he snatched her from the gutters of Florida :)

  • Lushus

    Judging by her IG that I just grazed thru, there is not one single mulatto or “other” race in her fam from what I can see. Everyone looks all black including granny with the gold teef so….I can’t call it.

  • Wellbalancedlibra

    Ain’t nobody checking for them. Clearly, someone called the paps.

  • kekeb

    No shade. Legit question:
    WHAT DID NEYO SEE IN HER THST HE DIDN’T SEE IN MONYETTA?!

  • BaileyBlue17

    Bloop!! That about sums it up. Looking extra stank.

  • suganspice68

    Lol

  • bashi

    I’m sorry but no amount of money can make Crystal look classy even when she’s dress up in evening gowns she just have this no class about her

  • bashi

    Like their not tons of hair care line on the market already

  • i troll it like i see it

    I’m not going to link a porn clip lol! But yeah it’s her. She’s younger, but it’s her. It was actually kind of sad to see it. I know they probably wish that wasn’t out there especially with them trying to pass her off as Suzy Homemaker.

  • bashi

    Man love hoes but didn’t Neyo mother was on Wendy Williams show some yrs back saying she didn’t want her son marrying Moneyetta Shaw so their must some tea ?? on her as well.

  • gro$$

    oh look a pregnant porn star with ugly fried ass hawaiian silky hair in a body suit!
    it’s said all pregnant women have a glow but shes the exception. she looks really disgusting idgaf

  • gro$$

    girl from the description I couldnt stomach searching PornHub nASSty! only Neyo would call this ho an upgrade. . I bet they have lots a 2guys 1 girl 3somes where she gets kicked off the bed by the other participants ;)

  • gro$$

    oh man so true, I love Chris Tucker too!

  • gro$$

    you said it!

  • Yup, I said it

    She looks like she buys the $3.99 tub of hair gel and slick that dead clorox helmet down. What white woman does that? Silly self tried it in hot ass CA while walking all day. That why she sweat most of the gel out and her black half is puffing up at the root.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    But you know how Momma’s are!! Nobody’s ever good enough. (At least that’s how I feel about my Sun and he’s only 14) But hell, if it were me, I’d take Monyetta ANYDAY!!! This heffa got a whole produced porn video!!!

  • Shenanigans1

    When I was pregnant i did a lot of things that made no sense. I think this blonde dye job is one of Crystals pregnancy brain situations smh.

  • tia

    If I were to cross paths with her, I wouldn’t think she was mixed at all. Even if she was, at the end of the day the other races would still see nothing more than another “negro”.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Ne-Yo wife is one of three “Z list celebs” that I know if I see in person I will heckle til fade…dont like her and I never will…idc if Monyetta done moved on and forgave she was manipulated and coerced into burning her tubes with the hope of keeping Ne-Yo happy and he leave less than two years later…His career aint been the same since she told her truth on that show… Its a bad taste in my mouth and will always be there…

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Thats what Im saying… atleast Mo had discretion and wasn’t on social media bashing people 24/7…

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Shes delusional….Nobody wants to look like an ostrich…

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Monyetta and him met at a Jamie Foxx concert…she was a beautiful plain jane type that wasn’t impressed by his persona. They did have babies fast but she stayed around and from what I remember he wanted kids fast cause something happen with a paternity test with another chick and it wasn’t his kid. She stayed home while he toured the world raising them babies and beckoning at his every call…only for him to leave and marry an ostrich with a porn video smh….brothas are something else sometimes…
