Ne-Yo announced in February that he had been planning to divorce his wife Crystal Renay. However, the singer's marriage was saved by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The So Sick hitmaker says the lockdown measures imposed due to the global pandemic have allowed them time to work on their differences.
BANG Showbiz reports that Ne-Yo and the mother of his two kids, Shaffer Jr and Roman, will not be divorcing any more thanks to the pandemic.

"The whole quarantine thing was kind of a blessing. It allowed me the time to lock back in with [my family].
"Before the quarantine happened, we were definitely talking divorce, and the quarantine forced us to sit still, block out the noise from the world — you know the world can get very, very loud, and we tend to let the world’s opinion mean more in certain situations than it should."
The publication reports that Ne-Yo, who also has kids Madilyn and Mason from a previous relationship, admitted he and Crystal had "uncomfortable" conversations which were "blatantly, painfully, brutally honest" to resolve their issues, and while he admitted such "difficult" discussions can be harmful, they found them beneficial.
