Crystal published her blog three months after Ne-Yo and Crystal renewed their wedding vows. It was an elaborate ceremony that followed past marital problems and ended in 2019. CelebHomes spoke Daily Pop in May, the singer said that at one point while quarantining amid the COVID-19 pandemic, he and his wife found themselves “considering divorce.”

Ne-Yo said, “It required a lot more really awkward conversations.” It’s hard to be a human being when you are close with someone you love. You care about how they feel, So to tell them something about themselves that they may not enjoy, it’s hard to do that, on top of it being hard to hear about yourself.”

Their relationship difficulties are at the center of his song, “Don’t Love Me,” which the signer wrote during the pandemic. He stated, “I’ve always been more proficient at writing it down rather than saying it out loud.”
