Ne-Yo's Ex-Baby Mama

Threatens Legal Action ...

You Blabbed, Time to Pay!

12/23/2012 11:23 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1222_neyo_tmzNe-Yo's former baby mama (we'll explain) is FUMING after the singer went on VH1 and blabbed about their baby drama -- and now she's hired mega attorney Gloria Allred to make him pay.

It's a pretty complicated story ... Ne-Yo used to have a relationship with a woman named Jesseca White. During their time together, Jesseca had a baby which Ne-Yo thought was his ... turns out, it wasn't.

The 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.

We reached out to Ne-Yo's rep -- so far, no word back.

He should've sued her ass for lying saying he was the kids father and he really wasn't making him look like a celebrity fool that got taken to the bank for half a milli!

If this isn't the biggest crock of ****.....The girl lied and told him he was the father of a baby that wasn't his. No one is checking for Ne-Yo, let alone his ex-baby momma. I highly doubt this woman is being harassed by anybody.

I concur with the comments thus far: WHY did he pay her more than a half a million dollars? And why, after paying this trash, would he need an agreement that stipulates him to not ever speak the truth? We need more information!! And fvck Gloria Allred!!

Gloria the red is an ambulance chasing whore who should fail in this case. This is not his child-she should get nothing. He is stupid to have paid her anything.

Okay, so let me see if I can sort this out -- she got half a mil for having a "relationship" (wink, wink), having a child with someone who wasn't in that same relationship, and now, four years later she's so destitute she's on state aid? Srsly?

So she went on welfare even though she got a half million dollar payday? She spent it that fast? LMAO, someone shoot this bitch.

Something is definitely wrong with this story. Who pays someone because they are not the dad? Either way, the woman needs to get over the "remarks" about her and get a job instead of being a gold digger!!! It was may understanding that to be defamed, you have to be famous first.

If he was stupid enough to pay in the first place, then sign a confidentiality agreement, and then talk about it anyway he just needs to pay up. You sign it, you stick to or you pay the consequences. It doesn't matter what the situation is. But, it sounds like he might really be the father and paid her off because he didn't want the father image. Idk, it just doesn't sound right to me.

This is crazy! If Neo is dumb enough to hand out half million dollar cheques for a baby that is NOT his - I got two kids. Where's my million?
