Singer addresses rumors about ex's tubal ligation procedure

What should be a happy time for Ne-Yo and his pregnant fiancée has turned into a drama-filled battle of celebrity versus public opinion.

Here’s the recap: Ne-Yo has two children with then-girlfriend Monyetta Shaw. She gets her tubes tied after they decide they're done with kids. They break up. Ne-Yo begins dating model Crystal Renay. They announce they’re expecting a child and are engaged. Social media blows up.

Ne-Yo has since responded to critics who’ve made him out to be the bad guy, explaining that his kids are well taken care of and he and Shaw are in a good place.



But talk of Shaw’s tubal ligation procedure and its lasting effects are continuing to rule the conversation. Earlier this week, Ne-Yo hopped on Twitter to set the record straight.

“Clearing the air..I didn’t force Mo to tie her tubes. Mutual decision. And the procedure is reversible #SheCanHaveKids #FromTheHorsesMouth,” he wrote.

When asked did Shaw feel like Ne-Yo would leave her if she didn’t go through with the procedure, he responded, “No. I don’t think she thought that. I never told her that. We made the decision together. Was no ultimatum.”

Shaw has yet to speak on Ne-Yo’s baby news and engagement.
