Ne-Yo slapped with defamation lawsuit by ex
New York, Mar 14 : Ne-Yo is being sued for defamation by his former girlfriend Jesseca White, who once claimed that the singer was the father of her child.
White gave birth to a son named Chimere in 2005 and listed Ne-Yo, whose real name is Shaffer Chimere Smith, as the father on the birth certificate.
A subsequent paternity test, however, proved her wrong.
They reached a 575,000-dollar settlement agreement in 2009, but now White claims that the 'Let Me Love You' hitmaker breached an agreement to not go public with information about their relationship.
Ne-Yo did a September 2012 episode of 'Behind the Music' on VH1 where he discussed his relationship with White, breaking the confidentiality clause of their agreement.
According to TMZ.com, White said that since the episode aired people have called her a host of nasty things and accused her of gold-digging.
She claims that it's damaging her career as a photographer and a graphic designer.
