Jeannie Mai, the wife of Atlanta rap legend Jeezy, has finally broken her silence following the news of their impending divorce. Although the couple is reportedly still residing together, Mai took to Instagram on Wednesday (October 11) to share a subtle message about the need to take a breather, possibly alluding to the challenges in her relationship with the “Put On” hitmaker.
In a heartfelt note accompanied by a black heart emoji, Mai expressed, “Sometimes you need to take a break and disconnect to heal.” The post garnered an outpouring of love and support from her friends, family, and fans, offering words of encouragement during this trying period.
Many individuals voiced their solidarity with her, emphasizing that she owes no one any explanations, content, or selfies. One supporter remarked, “You don’t owe us anything, not a word, not a video, not a photo/selfie. Nothing! Release that pressure and just live to His expectation… no one else’s! Bless.” Another added, “Do what you need for you and yours. As long as you need. Love you, Sis!”
Jeannie Mai and Jeezy tied the knot in 2021 and welcomed their daughter Monaco just last year. It’s worth noting that a prenuptial agreement is in place for their impending divorce, which Jeezy initiated last month.
As reported by Page Six, Jeezy’s divorce filing has left Mai feeling devastated, and she is determined to mend their family and make the relationship work. A source close to the situation stated, “The truth is Jeannie wants her marriage to work and wants her family to be one solid unit. She is devastated that Jeezy filed for divorce. Jeannie deeply loves Jeezy, and she wants to work things out. She did not get married to get divorced. This was not a part of the plan. This is not how she ever imagined things would go down.”
Even though Jeezy initiated the divorce proceedings, Jeannie remains hopeful that they can sit down and work through their issues. She is striving for a resolution and is committed to maintaining a united family.
According to sources cited by Entertainment Tonight, their separation is rooted in differences in family values and expectations. They held contrasting views, and both felt that their individual needs were not being fully met within the relationship.
