Ne-Yo is being sued by his ex-girlfriend Jesseca White for allegedly portraying her as a gold digger and a “loathsome, scheming harlot” in a the Behind The Music episode about his life.
Jesseca is the woman who had a baby in 2005 who Ne-Yo says he believed to be his son. After it was proven Ne-Yo was not the father, they made a confidential financial settlement and he never saw her nor the child again.
Flash forward to last year when the singer discussed the situation on VH1. Jesseca claims he painted her as an “unchaste woman who deliberately tricked him into believing he was the father of her child, Chimere, so that she could fraudulently bilk him of ‘ungodly amounts of money,’” reports CN.
She said since the show aired she has been attacked online, with people saying stuff like: “Gold diggin b*tch!!! She knew damn well that wasn’t his baby to begin with!! She’s a disgrace!!”
She says adds she had to stay at her mother’s house and hotels because she feared the “resulting rage,” and her business as a professional photographer and graphic designer has suffered.
She suing Ne-Yo for defamation, false light portrayal, and intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress. She’s also suing for breach of contract, as she believes he violated their confidential settlement agreement.
