A woman who once claimed Ne-Yo was her baby daddy is suing the rapper, claiming he defamed her by trashing her on a TV show.
Jesseca White claims in her lawsuit ... Ne-Yo went on VH1 and painted her as "an unchaste woman who deliberately tricked him into believing he was the father of her child ... so that she could fraudulently bilk him of 'ungodly amounts of money.'"
Jesseca and Ne-Yo used to bang. Jesseca had a kid in 2005 and she listed Ne-Yo as the daddy on the birth certificate. A paternity test proved otherwise.
Jesseca alleges she told Ne-Yo at the time she gave birth she wasn't sure he was the father, but Ne-Yo went on VH1 and claimed she tried to aggressively defraud him. As a result of the show -- which was a "Behind the Music" about Ne-Yo -- Jesseca says people have called her all sorts of names, including "c**t," "bitch," "pathetic" and "gold-digging bitch."
She also claims her career as a photog and a graphic designer has been torpedoed.
Jesseca is suing for unspecified damages.
