Rapper Jeezy files for divorce from TV host Jeannie Mai after 2 years of marriage
Jeezy, whose real name is Jay Wayne Jenkins, filed for divorce from Mai on Thursday at an Atlanta courthouse after two years of marriage.
According to the filing, the rapper said "the marriage is irretrievably broken" and "there is no hope for reconciliation." Jeezy and Mai both have a prenup in place.
"Good Morning America" has reached out to Jeezy's and Mai's reps for comment.
The couple began dating after they met on Mai’s talk show "The Real" in 2018. During an episode of "The Real" in 2019, Mai opened up about her relationship with Jeezy.
"Getting to know him has been one of the most beautiful experiences of my life," Mai said about the rapper at the time. "He’s introspective, he’s passionate, he’s incredibly deep, he’s a visionary, he’s a great leader, he’s an amazing servant to his community."
"I found my equal," she added. "I really got to know him just off our first date. We’re in our 40s. God somehow managed our timing."
In April 2020, Jeezy popped the question to Mai.
"I want nothing more than to spend the rest of my life loving you," Mai wrote on Instagram. “YES.”
They tied the knot in March 2021. Six months later, they announced they were expecting their first child together.
Mai and Jeezy welcomed their daughter Monaco Mai-Jenkins in January 2022.
Jeezy said he "desires" that their daughter will "share joint legal custody" on a "temporary and permanent basis."
