Singer/Songwriter Ne-Yo and his rumored fiancee, Crystal Renay, have announced that they are expecting their first child together. Under normal circumstances congrats would be in order, but Ne-Yo and Crystal have been met with nasty comments instead of good wishes. The negative opinions stem from Ne-Yo’s ex-fiancee, Monyetta Shaw, spilling the beans on the VH1 reality show, Atlanta Exes, that after being engaged and having two children with Ne-Yo, he requested that she have her tubes tied because he didn’t want anymore children. Some time after Monyetta underwent the procedure, Ne-Yo broke up with her leaving her with the inability to birth more children while still having the right to procreate himself. That’s dirty if true right? Well Ne-Yo says it isn’t and took to social media to “clear the air”.
“Clearing the air..I didn’t force Mo to tie her tubes/ Mutual decision. And the procedure is reversible. #SheCanHaveKids #FromTheHorsesMouth”
When pushed on whether Monyetta thought he’d end their relationship if she didn’t tie her tubes, Ne-Yo says no.
“No. I don’t think she thought that. I never told her that. We made the decision together. Was no ultimatum.”
My question is, even if he didn’t FORCE her to tie her tubes and it was a mutual decision between the two that they didn’t want more children, why did it have to be Monyetta who had to have a procedure? Ne-Yo could have very well had a vasectomy or they could have BOTH given up the physical ability to procreate together. Add to it that Ne-Yo broke up with her because he no longer wanted to monogamous, Ne-Yo basically starting a new family still must be a hard pill to swallow for Monyetta, even if she can have the procedure reversed.
Ladies, would you ever have your tubes tied under these circumstances? Fellas, would you ever ask a woman to get her tubes tied?
