Music powerhouse Ne-Yo is being threatened with legal action by his former baby’s mother for the comments he made on his Behind the Music special which aired back in September.
If you didn’t see the special, Ne-Yo used to be in a long-term relationship with Jessica White, and in that time she had a baby which Ne-Yo thought was his. It wasn’t. According to TMZ, the singer and White came to an agreement where he paid White $575,000 to have White officially say he was not the father and remove his name from the birth certificate. In turn, both sides agreed to a confidentiality clause, promising to never go public with the info.”
So Gloria Allred, that fire-breathing lawyer every woman who has been wronged seems to hire, is representing White, and they say in a letter to him that he broke their agreement. Since his Behind the Music aired, White has been “defamed, ridiculed and harassed.”
Apparently in the letter it was stated that White now can’t work, was “forced to file for state aid,” and she has mental grief, and is beset by nausea, vomiting and hair loss.”
Good thing White is willing to settle outside of court.
[Insert side-eye here.]
I’m no lawyer, but if I were Ne-Yo, I’d definitely ask to see the receipts. This whole situation from three months ago made her just file for state aid?
Do you think that Ne-Yo is wrong or Jessica White is only doing this for more money?
