Ne-Yo Reveals Paternity Test Nightmare
R&B crooner Ne-Yo has opened up about his heartbreak upon finding out that a child he thought he fathered was not his. In an episode of VH1’s ‘Behind The Music’, the ‘Let Me Love You’ singer made the startling revelation in reference to the son of ‘Sports Illustrated’ model Jessica White…
Female First reports that the singer found out that the model was pregnant whilst on the road and believed that the child was his, much to the dismay of family members and friends who urged him to take a paternity test.
The Grammy winning songwriter gives a painful recollection of events to his fans, reminiscing: "My mum was like, 'You're a grown man, you can make your own decisions, but as your mother I really feel like you should get the test done.' 'Alright ma, I'll get the test done.'”
"Jessica called me bawling... and all she could say is, 'He's not yours, he's not yours...' She just kept saying it over and over again to the point where I just dropped the phone...”
Ne-Yo reveals that he was stunned at the revelation, but was still determined to be there for the child, saying: "That hurt, because I had attached myself to that guy. This was my son."
Determined to be there for the child he once thought was his, the singer revealed that his relationship with the child broke down once the model demanded child support from him, and admitted that once they settled on an ‘ungodly amount of money’ he lost contact with the pair.
Staying optimistic, the singer who now has two children named Madilyn and Mason, mused: “Life goes on and so do we."
