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?

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.


Ne-Yo’s name was removed from the birth certificate, too.

Fast forward to the present and Ne-Yo’s Behind the Music special. By speaking about the ordeal, he may have violated the confidentiality clause in the settlement.

Allred claims Ne-Yo falsely painted Jesseca as a liar who broke his heart and vanished, and that Jesseca has been defamed, ridiculed and harassed.

According to Gloria, Jesseca has been unable to work and suffers from mental anguish and is “beset by nausea, vomiting and hair loss” thanks to Ne-Yo.

Jesseca is asking Ne-Yo to settle the matter amicably out of court, or else she will pursue more serious legal options. He has yet to respond to her camp.

The popular singer went on to have two actual children with girlfriend Monyetta Shaw in the three years since breaking up with Jesseca White.
