Ne-Yo Sued For Defamation By Ex-Girlfriend
A woman who once claimed that Ne-Yo was the father of her child has sued the singer for defamation after she claims he trashed her during a television interview.
Jesseca White says that during an interview with Ne-Yo for an episode of “Behind the Music”, the singer described her as “an unchaste woman who deliberately tricked him into believing he was the father of her child … so that she could fraudulently bilk him of ‘ungodly amounts of money.’”
Jesseca and Ne-Yo were once an item, and when she gave birth to a baby in 2005, she listed him as the father on the birth certificate. A subsequent paternity test later revealed that he was not the father.
Jesseca allegedly told Ne-Yo that she wasn’t sure who the father was, but he told VH1 that she tried to perpetrate a fraud. As a result, she says she has been the subject of harassment and name-calling, including “pathetic” and “gold-digging b***h”, and also claims that the accusations have destroyed her career as a photographer and a graphic designer.
Jesseca is seeking unspecified damages, according to TMZ.
