Ralph Tresvant’s ex-wife, Shelly Jean Tresvant most likely didn’t want her name used in The New Edition Story. To avoid being sued, BET used the name “Zena” instead of Shelly’s real name. Ralph and Shelly’s relationship started when they were only 11-years-old. The couple got married in 1993 and divorced in 1996.
Ralph and Shelly have two daughters and a son together. In 2012, Ralph’s daughter, Na’Quelle Tresvant-Smith, made him a grandfather. According to multiple media outlets, the New Edition singer was a cheater, leading Shelly to turn to drugs.
The tweet below shows Ralph wishing his other daughter, Mariah Ann Tresvant, a Happy Birthday. She was born on September 23.
Happy Birthday to my beautiful princess…Mariah Ann Tresvant!!!!! Have a wonderful day baby and I got you when I get home!!!! MUAH!!!!!!!!!

True New Edition fans were confused when they heard the name “Zena.” Media outlets report that Tresvant cheated on Shelly with Lisa Wu.
