Brit Awards 2013 - Red Carpet Arrivals

Ne-Yo has revealed for the first time that he was once married.

Neyo revealed to TMZ that he tied the knot 11 years ago when he was only 19 years old. He says the marriage was short-lived and that he and this then-wife annulled their marriage after less than a year together.

“Nobody really knows that,” the “Give Me Everything” singer said. Ne-Yo said that his career ambitions are what ultimately caused the pair to split. “I wanted to do this and she didn’t want me to do this,” he said. “And this is the only thing I’ve ever loved so I chose this over her.”
