Ne-Yo is a lame, but nonetheless successful R&B singer who has done some solo stuff as well as collaborations with others such as...

Apparently, Ne-Yo believes Chris Brown is being treated unfairly by the justice system because he's a celebrity. For real. He feels quite strongly about this, too.

Ne-Yo seems like a good guy who's entitled to his opinion.

It's just horribly misguided and absurd. Sorry.

TMZ talked to the R&B star and asked about the embattled Brown, with Ne-Yo quick to point out that the system "likes to make an example out of celebrities."

Seriously man? Do you really believe that?

Let's break it down in case Ne forgot, Yo:

  • Chris Brown beat the $h!t out of Rihanna and only got probation. Not a bad deal for any defendant. All he had to do was stay clean through 2014.
  • Of course, he cannot do this (see Chris Brown-Drake fight, Chris Brown-Frank Ocean brawl, Chris Brown-GMA window beef, etc., etc.)
  • After all of that, he got arrested for assault in D.C. last year, but STILL wasn't jailed because a judge let him go to rehab for anger issues instead.
  • He was kicked out of rehab TWICE.

Sure, being thrown in jail, then flown across the country on Con Air to stand trial is pretty tough, but does really sound like someone who doesn't deserve it?

You're out of bounds, Ne-Yo. Step off.

Celine Dion and Ne-Yo join forces in an "Incredible" new track for the former's upcoming album Loved Me Back to Life, due out next Tuesday, November 5.

While that pairing may seem odd at first glance, the results quickly put that notion to rest in a song Ne-Yo wrote for her. Take a listen below and see:

Celine describes the inspirational track as a “theme song for that moment when you do something that defines who you are or defines a moment in time.”

“It’s an honor and a pleasure to sing with Celine Dion, but it is not an easy thing,” said Ne-Yo, who has also worked with Mariah Carey, Beyonce, and Rihanna."

“It’s the most irrelevant that I’ve ever felt," he admits, noting she could've carried it herself. "Because the size of Celine Dion’s voice, you don’t need me there.”

Go behind the scenes of their “Incredible” collaboration below:

Ne-Yo's former maybe baby mama is pisssssssed after the singer went on VH1's Behind the Music and discussed their relationship from a few years ago.

Jesseca White has hired Gloria Allred as a result. Why?

Ne-Yo Style

Well, you see, Ne-Yo used to date Jesseca White. During their time together, Jesseca had a baby which Ne-Yo initially thought was his ... not the case.

The pair reached a settlement agreement in 2009 in which Ne-Yo paid $575,000 to Jesseca White, who in turn officially said that the kid wasn't his.

American Idol viewers were treated to a shock on this week's results show, as arguably the season's best singer wasn't merely placed in the bottom three; she was sent home!

Until the judges instituted their first and only saved of the season, that is. Jessica Sanchez will be around to impress for at least seven more days.

Less stunning than this development, however? The fact that Jennifer Hudson returned to the stage that made her famous and absolutely slayed via a performance of "Think Like a Man."

Watch the Oscar winner and former finalist do her thing, accompanied by Ne-Yo, in the first televised rendition of this track now. Watch below:

Dueling rumors today hint that Ne-Yo's baby mama, Monyetta Shaw, could be joining The Real Housewives of Atlanta, while Sheree Whitfield may be leaving.

MediaTakeOut (yeah, yeah) reported yesterday that Bravo is looking to oust Whitfield and "jumped at" the chance to get the "fun" and "outgoing" Shaw.

Ne-Yo told TooFab otherwise, however.

Outside of Boa in West Hollywood, he denied that Monyetta is joining the show. "It's not true," he said, though he would likely play it coy even if she were.

Ne-Yo and Monyetta have two children together, 17-month-old daughter Madilyn and 6-month-old son Mason. Think they'd be a good fit on the show?

Monyetta and Ne-Yo live in Atlanta, so that would certainly make some sense, though it remains to be seen if they'd subject their family to that rigamarole.

Ne-Yo's new album is called The Cracks in Mr. Perfect.

There are no cracks to be found in the joyousness and perfection of welcoming a child into the world, however - which he did for a second time this week!

Less than a year after the birth of daughter Madilyn Grace, Ne-Yo is a father again. He and girlfriend Monyetta Shaw welcomed their second child together.

Further details are yet to be released, but “[Fatherhood] has been a ride, I’m loving every minute of it,” Ne-Yo said last month about Monyetta's pregnancy.

Looks like nother baby is on the way for Ne-Yo and Monyetta Shaw.

“[Fatherhood] has been a ride, but I’m loving every minute of it,” says the singer-songwriter, 31, who’s already dad to Madilyn Grace, 10 months.

“She definitely knows her worth - which is a beautiful thing. That’s something I’ve tried to instill in her from day one: understand that you are a Godsend,” Ne-Yo says. “You’re an absolute angel and people are supposed to treat you that way."

Spoken like a true, proud dad. Congrats to Ne-Yo and Monyetta!

Ne-Yo and Monyetta Shaw are expanding their family already!

In case you were wondering, no, they are not married or engaged. The singer's rep cleared the air on that amid a flurry of reports that they were set to wed.

Safe to say Ne-Yo will not be picking up the new Michael Jackson album as a stocking stuffer this year. Like will.i.am, he says it shouldn't even be out.

Asked about Michael on the street, the R&B singer says he doesn't even want to listen to it because he doesn't think MJ would've wanted it released.

"Hold My Hand" is a good song... but was it even done? MJ was such a perfectionist, Ne-Yo says, that "I don't think the album would be out yet."

He adds, "I'm gonna stick to my old Mike" ...

When Ne-Yo and The Situation clash in a celebrity style showdown ... actually, that's never happened before to our knowledge. All bets are off in this face-off.

Fresh off the birth of his first child with Monyetta Shaw, Ne-Yo performed (and looked dapper to say the very least) Sunday at the American Music Awards.

The Situation, fortunately for those with the ability to hear, did not perform any music, although after Angelina Pivarnick's debut single, the bar's set low.

Which of the two fellas looked better last night? Vote!

Ne-Yo just became a father for the first time!

The R&B artist's girlfriend, Monyetta Shaw, went into early labor Friday night and had a baby girl. A rep for the star confirmed the joyous news.

The little cutie's name is Madilyn Grace Smith.

"I've been in love before but this feels like nothing I've ever felt," said Ne-Yo in a brief, poignant statement. "Like I'm in love for the first time."

The birth took place in an Atlanta hospital. Ne-Yo and Monyetta Shaw announced the pregnancy this summer. The baby had been due in January.

Ne-Yo was at a charity event for his foundation when word reached him that Shaw's delivery time had arrived, reported an Atlanta radio station.

Luckily, he made it to the hospital in time. Congratulations!
