Ne-Yo has been the target of gossip blogs ever since he broke on the scene. And despite crooning for the ladies about heartbreak and relationship gone bad, gay rumors continue to spread. The singer usually shrugged off the chatter and kept it moving, but it looks like he’s just fed up now.
In a recent interview with People, Ne-Yo made a comment about how Young Jeezy, whom he lives next door to, shouldn’t walk around his home naked because their homes are too close. The blogs had a field day with that quote, and the singer isn’t feeling it.
Heated, Ne-Yo headed over to his official blog, and sounded off about the gay allegations.
“I tell People Magazine that Young Jeezy’s crib is right next to mine and that once I saw him in there from across the way. I then, make a JOKE about him maybe not wanting to walk around naked in his crib with the shades up ’cause the buildings are THAT close to each other, and that AIN’T something I care to see,” explained Ne-Yo. “Suddenly, everybody thinks I said I saw Young Jeezy in his crib naked when, NEVER ONCE did I say anything like that.”
The singer also went on to address the altercation with Jim Jones on Christmas Eve, that resulted in the Dipset rapper getting an assault charge.
“I’m NOT gay, I’m NOT prejudice to anyone, I DID NOT get stomped out by Jim Jones or anyone else, I’m NOT engaged, I’M NOT STUPID. And to anyone that INSISTS on thinking that any of these things are true … F*** YOU,” said Ne-Yo.
The incident with Jones reportedly involved a member of Ne-Yo’s entourage and Jones at the Fifth Avenue Louis Vuitton store on Christmas Eve. Jones allegedly punched and kicked a man named Vaughn, the brother of Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith, who works with Ne-Yo and is the longtime best friend and colleague of Jones’ lyrical nemesis, Jay-Z.
Jones was officially charged with assault this week because of the incident.
“To the haters … find some new material please!!! It’s 2009, our president is black!!! Time for change. To everyone else … I love you to death, thanx for all your support,” he said, ending his blog rant.
