Ne-Yo's Ex-fiancée Monyetta Shaw Dances Her Heart out Wearing Yellow Swimsuit & Sheer Robe in Video
Ne-Yo's former fiancée, Monyetta Shaw, has her own way of having fun this summer, displaying her impressive dancing skills in a recent video posted on social media.
Monyetta Shaw was in the spotlight due to her relationship with singer Ne-Yo, whom she first met at a Jamie Foxx concert. The former couple had been engaged for quite some time, but then Ne-Yo canceled the wedding.
Shaw is an actress best known for "Soul Men," "Alexander," and "All That Matters." In addition to her acting skills, she is also a talented dancer. Shaw proved it by posting a video of herself showing off her dance moves.

SHE LOOKED STUNNING
As shown in the adorable clip posted on Instagram on August 2, Shaw was donning a yellow swimsuit that accentuated her enviable figure. The star paired the number with an elegant beach cover-up.
Shaw accessorized her brunette long locks with a yellow headband. A gust of wind blew her hair as she danced. In the background, there were coconut trees and a ship sailing in the blue ocean.
"I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean," Shaw wrote in the caption. "Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens. Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance."

Shaw went on to say that when people have the choice to sit it out or dance, she hopes they choose to dance. She also encouraged everyone to live their lives to the fullest and dance as if no one was watching.
The video, which already garnered more than 44,500 views on the popular photo and video-sharing social networking service, was taken from her vacation with her current fiancé and her children.
Recently, Shaw congratulated Ne-Yo on the birth of his third child with Smith.
HER LATEST BOOK
Shaw, who leads the Evan Grace Group, has also developed a career in children's books. Last February, she sat down with Rolling Out to talk about her project, "The Chronicles of Nice Guy Maso."
In response to questions about how her family inspired the book, Shaw said that her son Mason, who has a natural ability to be kind and give love to others, played a vital role. Mason also helped her with certain parts of it.
A NEW LOVE
Shaw and Ne-Yo were in a relationship from 2009 to 2013. Two years before they broke up, the two became engaged in September 2011. Aside from Mason, she also shares daughter Madilyn with the singer.
When she ended her relationship with Ne-Yo, Shaw wasn't able to find love immediately, but she's now much happier than before. The star talked publicly about her fiancé, Heath, for the first time in July 2020.
On Us Weekly's "Hot Hollywood" podcast, Shaw described Heath as a "good dude" and a "good person." The actress explained that she instantly realized he was the one, adding that he also has two kids.
Shaw said Heath is the CEO of his businesses, but by the same token, he frees up time for his children. She observed that he would reorganize his schedule even when there were big deals to negotiate.
Meanwhile, Shaw shared that she and Ne-Yo have strategized while co-parenting their children, especially when it comes to recent news events, police brutality, and the goals of the Black Lives Matter movement.
According to Shaw, co-parenting has become even more effective during the COVID-19 pandemic. She explained that Ne-Yo is at home quite often and spends time with Madilyn and Mason every weekend.

NE-YO'S NEW FAMILY
After splitting up with Shaw, Ne-Yo married Crystal Smith. The couple now has three kids, sons Shaffer and Roman, and daughter Isabella Rose. Smith, Shaw, and Ne-Yo have all been peaceful co-parents.
Recently, Shaw congratulated Ne-Yo on the birth of his third child with Smith. The star was gushing about the baby, who was bundled in pink blankets. She also described Isabella Rose as a blessing to the family.
