According to TMZ…
Ne-Yo went on a redecorating mission last weekend at an Atlanta strip club — dropping so much money on naked booty-shakers … he literally covered the floor with singles … and TMZ has obtained the pics.
Ne-Yo hit up Magic City strip club on Saturday night with his baby mama Monyetta Shaw — the one in leopard print — and sources tell us, he rained down between $3,000-$5,000 in ones. We’re told he didn’t drink a drop of alcohol either — keeping mostly to himself in the VIP room for two hours between midnight and 2AM. Just enough time to take over the entire club.
