A source tells ET that the 45-year-old rapper, whose real name is Jay Wayne Jenkins, and the former co-host of The Real weren’t on the same page when it came to “certain family values and expectations.”
“They had different views, and each felt like their needs weren’t being completely met,” the source explains.
Mai, 44, and Jeezy were first linked in January 2019, and a source confirmed their relationship to ET in April 2019. They made things Instagram official in September 2019.
The couple went on to tie the knot during an intimate ceremony in Atlanta, Georgia, on March 27, 2021, before they welcomed their daughter, Monaco, in January 2022.
Jeezy is also a dad to three older children — Jadarius, Shyheim and Amra — from previous relationships.
According to court documents obtained by ET, Jeezy filed for divorce on Thursday in Fulton County Superior Court. The documents state they’ve been separated, the marriage is “irretrievably broken,” and “there is no hope for reconciliation.” Jeezy also wants joint legal custody of their daughter.
We are not sure the reason the source gave will quiet all the speculation.
Some have speculated about Jeannie Mae’s temper based on passed interviews where she admitted that her temper was a sore spot for Jeezy.
Jeannie Mai admits to being emotionally abusive, challenging, disrespecting and "having a temper" that she expected JEEZY to check (aka, correct) and watch how we will let this slide. Nearly all men believe they have to put up with this behavior. Jeezy walked away with his pride. https://t.co/oaaOCNAytx

Some are even blaming Mario Lopez, claiming he seemed way too friendly.

We think in time, the couple will share what they want the public to know, for now we wish them the best, for the sake of the baby.
