Despite the breakup, Ne-Yo spoke pretty highly of his estranged wife, giving off the impression that the split is amicable even though the two posted a few subliminals within the last two weeks. Things took a more interesting turn when Crystal was recently spotted partying with Black Inc Crew Chicago’s Ryan Henry.

Like I said, that’s the mother of my kids and I love her to death. We’re gonna be family forever.”
