Congratulations: Neyo & Crystal Renay Are Married His Children Did Not Attend Due To Scheduling Conflicts
After a little over a year of dating, a child on the way, doubters and a drama filled union from the public, Neyo and his fiancée Crystal Renay finally had their fairytale ending, by becoming husband and wife. They were surrounded by close friends and family on Saturday in Los Angeles. Neyo told People magazine, "We're looking forward to just being each others' best friend." Neyo met his bride Renay, who is a model in 2015 while working on his album and wanted to work with her. Speaking more to People, Neyo said, "I kind of knew right away. From that first encounter, I knew there was something different about her, something special." Speaking on her dress fitting and growing stomach, Renay said; "When I went to my first fitting, I had actually just found out the day before that I was pregnant, so from the beginning of the whole dress process, we knew that it would be a growing belly."
She continued to chat about pre-ceremony jitters: "I'm gonna be honest: I'm nine months pregnant – I'm nervous about falling on my face!" Neyo added "I'm more concerned about her making it all that way down that aisle or if the water breaks or something." About marriage Neyo said: "This is big for me. I'm not doing this again, so I'm happy that my family and friends are able to be there to share this moment with us. We're human being, so we're gonna bump heads on different things, but we've agreed that this is gonna be a marriage that lasts."
Although the information stated above seems that the wedding went well, two important people apart of Neyo's life, were not apart of the wedding. His wife is expecting their first child together, but Neyo is already a father to 4-year-old son Mason Evan and 5-year-old daughter Madilyn Grace. Neyo was engaged to Monyetta Shaw in the images above. Shaw is on the reality show 'Hollywood Exes.' While on the show, Shaw mentioned that she burned her tubes after having a boy and girl because she and Neyo felt that their family was complete and marriage was the next step to their happily ever after. Being in love and trusting in forever, Shaw did the procedure, so ending the relationship and seeing Neyo in a new relationship, now married and about to have a third child was devastating. She cried that she could no longer have children. America became empathetic and things hasn't been easy on social media for Neyo and his wife. They are constantly attacked and called disgusting names. What people are missing is that Shaw, an adult made a decision to carryout the procedure. While on the show, after a few doctor appointments, it was revealed that the procedure is reversible and that she can have children. With this being Neyo first marriage, it was heartbreaking knowing that his daughter and son could not be apart of the festivities and in pictures. They might schedule a photo-shoot to include the children, but they were not at the wedding. A fan questioned Shaw about the children missing their father wedding. She responded to the fan on the right in the image below, that due to scheduling conflicts, they could not attend. Neyo new wife, Renay also reposted the same image as shaw with a message of her own. Read below. It was probably extremely hard to see another girl and boy around the same age as his children, play flower girl and ring-bearer. Many called Shaw wrong for this, but read her explanation below.
Renay modeling past and a video being released of her involving in sexual acts with females did not help win the public over either. People are very judgmental, but it is great to know who you are and to be happy with the person you have become. It is with this attitude that helps Renay cope with the public scrutiny. The image below and caption she posted, shows Renay defending her past and present. See more wedding images and more from the couple, below.
