Crystal Smith filed to divorce Ne-Yo but the singer says that if she wants to continue living a lavish lifestyle, then she should get a job.
According to court documents obtained by Radar Online, Ne-Yo says Crystal was “formally unemployed at times during the marriage.”
The singer says that her earning potential “has benefited significantly due to her personal association with the Respondent and his career,” and that she should get a job to pay her own legal fees.
“[Crystal] possess the considerable ability to procure stable and consistent employment at this current time and following the dissolution of the marriage,” the documents read.
Crystal put Ne-Yo on blast in July, accusing him of cheating on her again. She also allegedly found out he fathered a child with his mistress.
“8 years of lies and deception,” she began. “8 years of unknowingly sharing my life and husband with numerous of women who sell their bodies to him unprotected… every last one of them! To say I’m heartbroken and disgusted is an understatement,” she wrote.
“To ask me to stay and accept it is absolutely insane. The mentality of a narcissist. I will no longer lie to the public or pretend that this is something it isn’t. I choose me, I choose my happiness and health and my respect.”
