R&B singer Ne-Yo recently sat down with Essence.com to talk about his baby’s mama and his son,a young boy named Chimere who isn’t at all Ne-yo’s biological offspring. Read more below.

Essence: You’ve been the target of many rumors, but I love that you keep it moving. Let’s address the rumor regarding your financial dispute with your son’s mom, who was supposedly getting evicted due to your refusing to pay child support. Is that true?

Ne-Yo: There is truth to some of it. She was being evicted because I refused to pay her rent any longer once I found out her child was not my biological son. But I’ve been his father since the day he came on his earth so I told her anything he needs I got him, but you are a grown a– woman with working arm and legs—ain’t nothing wrong with you so go get yourself a job.

Essence: Why in the world would she try to take you to court after you agreed to give financial support in raising her son?

Ne-Yo: She wasn’t happy with the amount I offered to give her and said, ‘No, I need more.’ So she decided to take me to court. I asked her why and told her she wouldn’t win because he was my not biological son. So I said, ‘Fine, you get nothing. Let’s go to court.’

Essence: Whoa! So why did you wait to get a blood test?

Ne-Yo: Well, she told me when she got pregnant that it could be between me and another guy, so I knew that from the beginning. When the baby was born everyone assumed that he was mine because he looked so much like me so no one really questioned it except my mother because she never trusted her and urged me to get a blood test.

Essence: How did that discovery affect you?

Ne-Yo It hurt me for a minute, but you know….

Essence: Do you still see him?

Ne-Yo No, because she doesn’t allow me to, so what can I do? As a mother she has the right, I don’t.

  1. I’m trulу enjoying the design anԁ layout of your websіte.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit
    more often. Diԁ you hire оut a developer too create your theme?
    Exceptional work!

  2. it could be true but I just dont know that baby father could be somwhere out in this world but that baby will always know neyo as his father

  3. Ne-Yo better be glad that the only thing that came out of the “blood test” was him not being the father. He could have tested positive for HIV/AIDS and still may.
    I don’t know why everyone is talking about how “nasty” she is when he’s just as nasty. He probably wasn’t even in a serious relationship with her. I’m guessing he merely “hit it and quit it”. It’s so stupid to plant your seeds in just any womb. Have some class and be a real man, get with a real woman, be in a real relationship, get married for real and have some real BIOLOGICAL children. Be REAL HAPPY

  4. I hate it when women use their children as meal tickets. >_< I hope she’s not taking her rage over her f-up on that poor baby.

    And since when did ‘child support’ mean ‘baby mama support and the kid gets what’s left over’?

  5. If that’s not his child why do he have to take care of it.I would just move on because u still tried 2 be in his life and the baby mama would’nt let u. So my best bet is 2 move on.YA DIG

  6. this chick has some nerves first its not his child he agreed to help you but the figures is not what u wanted an now wants to take him to court chick in is la la land she should be happy she’s getting help dumb broad.

  7. i feel your pain but guess what all these hot chicks have to offer is gold digging skills neyo take a poor girl and see if she doesnt love you unconditionally i am from guyana South america and wish you can perform a concert here someday and please sing a song with my name its Jewel

  8. Hey Ne-Yo … don´t worry :) I have to admit, that girl Jessica is a bit mean … and youre baby is cute and looks a bit like you(hehe i think you are cute to) but my vise for you is go out on a date with some girl! and forget about her for at least one nigth ! well thats all i have to say except …keep doing thees great songs like So sick and you will be on the top* love Svava from Iceland

  9. CLARIFICATION: I don’t think she deserves it, but legally could have easily gotten it. Blame her legal counsel for that failure.

  10. Unfortunate… But there are cases where the non-biological father has been in the child’s life since birth and they are forced to pay and continue to pay child support and get visitation, even AFTER it’s been established that the child is not his. She messed up a good thing and had a DUMB lawyer. Neyo even says he claimed the child, KNOWING there was a chance it was not his. Closed case, she should have gotten support.

  11. that girl is crazy. and no he doesnt look like neyo. i bet she wishes he was neyos son cuz she sounds like a gold digger. lord help her.

  12. that is sooooo messed up DUMB BROADS she is so grimy i wouldn’t even have the guts to do that to someone!!!!!! woowwww

  13. Man, that’s messed up, she knew what she was doing.And all this time I thought that was Ne-yo’s biological son, but it wasn’t. I
    do agree with him on the fact, that she needs to get a job and start taking care of her son, her own responsiblities. period.

    • I personal hate when woman have babies on a possibility! Why even play like that (just stupid)? I’m not saying get rid of your baby but flipping a coin or trying to figure out who the child looks like once it gets here is so low class.

      Ne-Yo thank god he wasn’t yours! Why would you even want to start a family with a woman like that. She probably knew all along the baby wasn’t Ne-Yo’s but was trying to get paid. The other dude is probably a broke bum. Getting evicted and trying to get child support from a man that’s not even the father, says a lot about her right there.
