Ne-Yo Sued for Defamation

Ne-Yo Sued for Defamation

After lashing out against a woman who claimed he was the father of her child, Ne-Yo is being sued for defamation.

Back in 2005, Jesseca White gave birth to a child and listed the “Let Me Love You” singer as the father on the birth certificate. A subsequent paternity test proved her wrong.

Following the 30-year-old singer”s complaining about the woman on a VH1 “Behind the Music” special, Jesseca says people have called her a host of nasty names and accused her of gold-digging.

According to TMZ, the lawsuit claims that he purposely 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.””

In addition to the emotional toll, Ms. White says her career as a photographer and graphic designer has suffered as a result. She”s suing for unspecified damages.
