by | Divorce

R.I.P. to rapper Young Jeezy’s marriage. 

The rap sensation has filed for divorce from wife of two years Jeannie Mai Jenkins, according to People.

The publication stated that the 45-year-old rapper, filed in Georgia’s Fulton County Superior Court on Thursday.

The filing states that the marriage is “irretrievably broken” and there is “no hope for reconciliation”.

The couple share an 18-month-old daughter named Monaco, who was born in January 2022.

Jeezy is reportedly seeking joint custody of the little girl — the couple’s only child.

Jay Wayne Jenkins, and Jeannie Mai were married on March 27, 2021, but are currently separated.

Jeannie, 44, and Jeezy have a prenuptial agreement and neither has yet spoken publicly about the alleged split.

Upon hearing the news, fans flocked to Jeannie’s most recent Instagram post to leave concerned comments.

One follower simply wrote, ‘I hope what I read is a lie,’ while someone else added, ‘I really don’t believe the divorce rumours.’

Another person added, ‘Listen, say it ain’t so. I don’t get in celebrity business but I’m hurt about this.’

Others begged the television personality to, ‘Please tell me the divorce rumors are false.’

Just last month Jeannie attended a concert at Atlanta’s Tabernacle venue to support her husband as he performed at Amazon’s hip-hop tribute City Sessions: 50 & Forever Featuring Jeezy & Special Guests.

And weeks ago she gave her husband a shoutout on social media for becoming a New York Times bestseller.

‘Today I celebrate a remarkable milestone achieved by my husband, @jeezy, whose memoir Adversity For Sale has soared to the New York Times bestsellers list,’ she captioned to her three million followers.

‘I’m endlessly grateful for your voice in this world. Honored to walk beside you my love,’ she added in the September 6 Instagram post.

The rap sensation replied in the comments, leaving two red heart emoji.

Mai has not been mentioned on Jeezy’s Instagram page since he wished her a Happy Mother’s Day in May.

He was, however, active on the site on the same day as his divorce filing, writing a cryptic caption to his 5.4 followers.

Posing in front of a Maybach car, he wrote, ‘Too focused on who I’m becoming to focus on who’s not coming with me.’

As far as fans and followers, everyone is shocked over this news.

In my opinion, black men carry a lot of trauma from childhood into adulthood and it shows up in their relationships.  Many can not seem to carry on a healthy relationship. I know saying so will offend many people, but it’s simply the truth that needs to be addressed.
