Ne-Yo dated Monyetta Shaw from 2009 until 2013. They broke up just a few months before they had planned to get married. They have two children together, Madilyn (born 2010) and Mason (born around 2011).
Prior to the couple's breakup, Shaw actually had her tubes tied, per Ne-Yo's request. "Adding to the pain is knowing that if I find another man to love, I may not be able to start a family with him. I’m too scared to go to a doctor to find out if there’s anything they can do about it. Because I do want to get married someday, and if my future husband does not have kids, I will want to have his children," Shaw said in 2016 piece in the New York Post.
