Crystal Renay has been in the news a lot lately after filing for divorce from the singer Ne-Yo.

“8 years of lies and deception,” she wrote on Instagram on July 30, according to E! News. “8 years of unknowingly sharing my life and husband with numerous of women who sell their bodies to him unprotected…every last one of them! To say I’m heartbroken and disgusted is an understatement. To ask me to stay and accept it is absolutely insane. The mentality of a narcissist.”
