Ne-Yo objected to Crystal’s request for temporary and permanent alimony along with primary custody. He said they should share joint legal and physical custody. The music producer said he should pay child support but scoffed at the idea of spousal.
Ne-Yo said he is an “active and loving father to his children.”
“[Ne-Yo] asserts that he is financially, physically, and emotionally capable of serving as a joint physical custodian of the parties’ three minor children alongside the [Crystal].”
Further, Ne-Yo asked for both parties to pay debts solely in his or Crystal's name.
He demanded the exclusive use of the marital home in Georgia as “he has been solely responsible for the mortgage and maintenance of this property since the date of purchase.” The singer said he purchased 3 properties during the marriage and maintained them by himself.
Ne-Yo wants Crystal’s lack of contribution considered when the assets are divided up.
