Jeezy Files for Divorce From Jeannie Mai Jenkins After 2 Years of Marriage – The 45-year-old rapper initiated divorce proceedings from the 44-year-old host of The Real on Thursday in Atlanta, Georgia, as confirmed by documents acquired. This couple had been married for two and a half years and had a prenuptial agreement in effect.
Jeezy’s filing says the former couple are “currently living in a bona fide state of separation,” and that their marriage is “irretrievably broken” with “no hope for reconciliation.” The document additionally indicates that the rapper is seeking joint legal custody of their daughter. The initial report on this matter came from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Jenkins and Jeezy, exchanged vows at their Atlanta residence in March 2021 and welcomed their daughter Monaco in January 2022.
The pair celebrated their two-year anniversary in March with a surprise trip to Vietnam that Jenkins organized for her husband as a “long-awaited adventure.” “When Jeezy and I met, we bonded over the similarities and differences of our cultures,” she told a news outlet at the time. “Now that we have a daughter, blending our worlds, it gives even more meaning to explore Vietnam together as a multicultural family.”
Jeezy had initially planned to pop the question in Hoi An, Vietnam in April 2020, but was forced to change his plans after COVID canceled the trip. “When Jeezy proposed to me, he decorated his condo to look like Hoi An. It brought the memories of our engagement full circle when we were finally in Hoi An for the first time,” Jenkins said of their anniversary vacation. Their initial encounter occurred while working together on Jenkins’ daytime talk show, The Real.
They discreetly began their relationship in November 2018, later choosing to publicly acknowledge their romance in August 2019. “We both went through enough in our life to connect on the understanding that love should feel safe, honest, and pure,” Jenkins said at the time. “Immediately, that was a magnetic attraction. We are very attracted to each other’s passions to serve. So because we have a mutual joy of having purpose, we’re going to find a way to do that together.”
When Jenkins was a contestant on Dancing With the Stars in 2020, she marked Disney night with a special dance dedicated to Jeezy, set to the song “Married Life” from the Disney-Pixar movie Up. Ahead of the performance, the Holey Moley reporter said her “entire life took a turn” when she met Jeezy, and that Up was a special movie for the pair. Jenkins opened up about married life to Entertainment Tonight in 2021, saying it felt “1,000 percent different” than dating, “in the greatest way.”
The celebrity was open and candid about the challenges she encountered during her initial year of motherhood, which encompassed difficulties with breastfeeding and a distressing episode of postpartum anxiety. In June, she said to a news outlet, expressing that both she and Jeezy, who has two children from previous relationships, prioritize a family-first approach. They frequently rely on their extended family to assist in caring for their daughter while juggling their careers.
