Smith who is now the father of two healthy and happy children of his own, revealed the painful ordeal during his episode of VH1′s “Behind the Music.”
The “fake” baby mama’s name is Jessica White (not to be confused with the supermodel) and while the deceit was bad enough, her treachery went even further as she forced Ne-Yo to fork over a ton of dough for a child that wasn’t even his.
Ne-Yo On Finding Out the Baby Wasn’t His
Jessica called me, balling crying. I’m like, ‘What’s wrong with you?’ And all she could say is, ‘He’s not yours, he’s not yours.’ She just kept saying it over and over and over again, to the point where I dropped the phone. Chimere’s not mine.
That hurt ’cause I had attached myself to this guy, you know. This is my son. I’m looking at him and I’m picturing I’m gonna be old, and he’s gonna be — this is my son! It’s not my son.

On Trying to Take Care of Chimere & Jessica Taking Him to Court for Child Support
I didn’t care who the father was. In my mind, I was still Chimere’s father. I was there when he was born. I saw him when he first came out. I held him. He was my kid.
In the state of California if you put yourself out there as the father, the mother can then come after you in court like you’re the biological father so we settled out of court for what I thought was an ungodly amount of money. Shortly after that Jessica and Chimere vanished. [So you’re not in touch with him now?] No. Nope. [Sorry.] Life goes on and so do we.
