Ne-Yo’s Ex-Girlfriend is Suing Him Over September Behind the Music Interview
TMZ reports that Ne-Yo’s ex-girlfriend is furious that the singer went on VH1 and talked about their relationship drama, and now she has hired attorney Gloria Allred as payback.
Previously, Ne-Yo had a relationship with Jesseca White. When they were together, White had a baby which Ne-Yo believed was his. It turned out the child was not actually Ne-Yo’s. The two reportedly reached a settlement agreement in 2009 in which Ne-Yo gave $575,000 to Jesseca, who officially said the child was not his. Ne-Yo was initially listed on the birth certificate as the father, but his name was later removed. Both sides reportedly agreed to a confidentiality clause to promise to never go public with the information. However in September 2012 on VH1’s Behind the Music, Ne-Yo did an interview and revealed all the sordid details.
Gloria Allred has now written a letter to Ne-Yo which accuses him of breaking the agreement. Allred’s claim is that because Ne-Yo falsely painted Jesseca as a harlot who lied and broke his heart, Jesseca has been defamed, ridiculed and harassed. The letter also says Jesseca has been unable to work and was forced to file for state aid, suffers from mental anguish, and is “beset by nausea, vomiting and hair loss” because of Ne-Yo’s remarks. White is asking Ne-Yo to settle the matter amicably out of court or she will be forced to pursue more serious legal options.
