The singer, now 30, told celebrity site TMZ: “Wait, actually, yeah, when I was like 19. It wasn’t even for like a year. It isn’t well known because nobody really asked.”
The relationship ended in divorce, he said, when his former partner insisted he choose between her and a career in music.
“[Music] is honestly the only thing I’ve ever loved, so I chose this over her. Now I’m here, and I don’t know where she is.”
Ne-Yo, born Shaffer Chimere Smith, is now engaged to Monyetta Shaw, whom he met in 2009. They have two children together.
