“He continued around 10:50 p.m. He played three songs before walking off stage. He was frustrated that his microphone kept having technical problems,” an eyewitness told The US Sun.

Ne-Yo sang Miss Independent, So Sick and Closer, then tried singing Give Me Everything twice before becoming “annoyed” and “walking” off the stage, according to an eyewitness.

“He was in an upbeat mood at first, calling out to the audience, ‘Sexy independent women in store, make noise,'” the insider added.

In a video provided to The US Sun, fans can be heard encouraging the singer to keep going, cheering him on: “It’s fine!”

One fan can even be heard saying, “Honestly, if I were him, I’d be pissed.”

The video also shows one of his crew telling the crowd, “He wants so badly to perform for you, but we can’t have him like this.”

After 15 minutes on stage with technical problems, Ne-Yo said to the crowd of over 3,000: “We will tell [the organizers] that we need Ne-Yo back. In the meantime, you’ve all been great. Appreciate you all… Get a drink… Peace and love to all.”

The father-of-five’s private show was to be the icing on the cake of the night’s activities aboard MSC Seascape. Andrea Bocelli’s son Matteo Bocelli sang and Sophia Loren gave a virtual blessing.

ESCAPE THE DRAMA?

Ne-Yo has toured various cities across the US and has added overseas tour dates as of January 2023.

He’s also taken on side projects, like serving on the judging panel for Netflix’s new show Dance Monsters, out December 16.

The music artist appears to be busy amid his ongoing divorce and custody battle.

His ex-wife Crystal Smith filed for divorce in Georgia in August 2022 after alleging infidelity. She quoted that their four-year marriage “was broken irretrievably with no hope of reconciliation.”

In a since-deleted Instagram post, she wrote: “8 years. 8 years of lies and deceit. 8 years of unknowingly sharing my life and my husband with numerous women who sell him their bodies unprotected… every single one of them! To say I’m heartbroken and disgusted is an understatement. God bless.”

RUNNING FIGHT

Ne-Yo and Crystal share three children: Shaffer Smith Jr., Roman and Isabella. He’s also a father to two other children – Madilyn and Mason – with his former partner Monyetta Shaw.

In the divorce documents, Crystal claimed her ex fathered a child with another woman.

Ne-Yo has only addressed his divorce publicly in a statement he posted on social media at the time.

He told his followers: “For the sake of our children, my family and I will face our challenges behind closed doors. Personal matters should not be discussed and analyzed in public forums.

“I just ask that you respect the privacy of me and my family at this time.”

Back in September, Ne-Yo filed a response to Crystal’s application, denying her request for primary custody and spousal support.

He demanded that they share joint legal and physical custody and agreed to pay child support.

Other court documents obtained by Radar Online revealed that Ne-Yo filed an emergency gag request to prevent Crystal from speaking out further.

“To date, [Ne-Yo] Has [lost] approximately $400,000 in salaries related to public appearances, professional bookings and promotional efforts related to the promotion of his new music project,” the filing reads.

The former couple last had a virtual status conference hearing on Nov. 22. A new court date has not yet been set.
