Jeezy is continuing to drop shocking bombshells from his life. The latest revelation details how his innocence was taken away from him as a young boy.
In a candid interview with Nia Long that hit YouTube on Tuesday, the rapper opened up on a disturbing moment in his life as a kid when he thought he was in safe hands, as reported by Vibe.
During their sit-down, Long asked the "Me OK" rapper about his first encounter with trauma. “I think it was several things,” he shared. “I think the first was being left with a babysitter that was a woman that was older than me and her, you know, touching me and doing things to me that don’t normally happen to kids.”
"Like molesting," Nia clarified.
“Right, basically.” He alleged, adding that he was “introduced to sex at a very young age."
Another life-altering moment he discussed was his decision to divorce his wife Jeannie Mai after two years of marriage.
“This has not been an easy journey," he said. “I’m saddened, I’m disappointed, I’m uneasy.”
Still, he assures this is a faith walk.
“God has put me in a different path and that path is going to entail for me to take care of myself and to love myself and to be in the best situation where I can thrive."
When asked if he had gone to therapy with Mai to work on their relationship, Jezzy said, “Yeah.”
He continued, “I don’t like to fail at anything,” while adding, “I can only be responsible for myself and I can only do what I can do. I can’t expect someone else to do what I am doing.”
In September, the ATL rapper filed for divorce from Mai. The couple exchanged vows at their Atlanta home in March 2021. They are also parents to a one-year-old daughter, Monaco Mai-Jenkins, for which he is seeking joint legal custody, according to AJC. Mai has secured family lawyer Randall Kessler as her attorney who has represented numerous Atlanta-based celebrities in their divorce and custody proceedings.
