As the conversation continued, Shaw-Carter explained why their three-year engagement, and romance, ultimately came to an end.

“We did things together — it’s not cheating if you’re involved with it,” she explained, then held up three fingers.
She then continued by saying, “that’s where I was at that time.”
“But it became a problem when you want that alot — like maybe, I’ll give you maybe twice a year or a few times but it was like too much and I was like if you want that, you don’t want me — it was making it seem like I was not enough…”
Shaw-Carter explained that she was “devasted.” Additionally, she said she “tried to keep it cute and spicy” for the singer. However, “it wasn’t enough” and “it is what it is.”

Additionally, she also shared her regret for complying, as per The Shade Room.
“…I wasn’t a prude. I went hard for my relationship, it kinda happened and that’s what it was…
If it’s not what you want… at the time it was what I wanted, I’m not proud of it and I wouldn’t recommend it if it’s not part of your lifestyle,” she said at the time.
In 2021, Shaw-Carter went on to marry Heath Carter. Today, she and Ne-Yo co-parent their 12-year-old daughter Madilyn and 11-year-old son Mason, as per Page Six.
