Take a look at the shit people have to deal with during the holidays!
Back in September, VH1 aired an episode of Behind the Music featuring Ne-Yo where he talked about his hits and misses while trying to make it in the entertainment business.
During the hour long special, Ne-Yo also briefly discussed his relationship with a woman named Jesseca White, who became pregnant while dating Ne-Yo, had him taking care of the son (pictured below), only to later find out that the child was not his.
Well, now she’s hired super attorney, Gloria Allred, to order him to pay up for violating a gag order that says neither would ever speak about the situation.
he couple reached a settlement agreement in 2009 in which Ne-Yo coughed up $575,000 to Jesseca, who in turn officially said the kid wasn’t his. Ne-Yo was originally listed on the birth certificate as the father, but his name was later removed.
As part of the deal, both sides agreed to a confidentiality clause, promising to never go public with the info. Fast forward to September 2012 … Ne-Yo did an interview with VH1′s “Behind the Music” and spilled the beans on the whole sordid ordeal.
Now, Gloria Allred has fired off a letter to Ne-Yo accusing him of breaking the agreement. Allred claims that because Ne-Yo falsely painted Jesseca as a harlot who lied, broke his heart and then vanished … Jesseca has been defamed, ridiculed and harassed.
According to the letter, Jesseca has been unable to work, was forced to file for state aid, suffers from mental anguish and is “beset by nausea, vomiting and hair loss” thanks to Ne-Yo’s remarks.
Jesseca is asking Ne-Yo to settle the matter amicably out of court (cough, cough $$$$) … otherwise she’ll be forced to pursue more serious legal options.
If you didn’t get a chance to see Ne-Yo’s episode of Behind the Music, I STRONGLY suggest that you check it out. This Jesseca chick has a LOT of nerve, with all considered. Post your thoughts.
PS: Merry Christmas (Eve)! Blog posting will be limited to none this week, as I prepare for the new year.
