Popular hip-hop star Jerzy has filed for divorce from his talk show host Jeannie Mai after just two years of marriage. Media Take Out has learned. And we drink more tea.
We reached out to someone close to Jeezy who told us that the divorce wasn’t bitter and that there was no infidelity in the marriage. The friend told Media Take Out that the rapper felt “suffocated” in his relationship.
Jeezy, who filed the lawsuit in Fulton County Superior Court, says Jeezy, whose real name is Jay Jenkins, is already separated from Mai and they have signed a prenuptial agreement. Jeezy is seeking joint custody of their daughter, who was born early last year.
The couple married in Atlanta at their home in March 2021, amid the pandemic.
Jeannie hosted the syndicated talk show “The Real” for eight seasons before it was canceled last year. The couple met when he attended her show as a guest.
“Years later, he asked me out,” May told Vanity Fair in 2021. “We had a romantic sushi dinner in Los Angeles and salsa danced the night away.” Later that evening he asked me if I could imagine spending the rest of my life with him. And crazy enough, I could.”
This is Jeannie’s second marriage. She divorced her first husband after eleven years because she was unwilling to have a child with him.
