Jeannie Mai Alleges She Learned Of Her Divorce From Jeezy At ‘Same Time Like The Rest Of The World’

“I was gutted,” said the mom of one.

Jeannie Mai is reflecting on the moment she discovered her ex-husband Jeezy had filed for divorce.

On the Monday (Dec. 4) episode of "The Jennifer Hudson Show," Mai explained how she learned that the rapper had pulled the plug on their relationship and how she is doing nearly three months later.

When news broke online that the “Put On” hitmaker had filed for divorce, it sent shockwaves on all social media platforms. At the time, Mai was in the Big Apple for New York Fashion Week.

“When I found out at the same time as the rest of the world that my marriage was ending in divorce, I was gutted,” she said.

Mai continued, “Even though this year I met the most broken version of me, I also met the strongest version of me.

The talk show personality stated, “I was going through things and [my] marriage ended in divorce; it was kind of hard. It’s what I’m dealing with day by day."

When asked how she is doing now, Mai said she is “doing better.”

"Today, it's about picking up the pieces; it's about discovering me, being a mom to the best blessing in my life, my little girl."

“Monaco is everything. She’s just my whole world,” she said.

Mai and Jeezy are parents to daughter Monaco Mai-Jenkins, 23 months, for which the rapper 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.

In September, the ATL rapper filed for divorce from Mai after two years of marriage.

Last month, he spoke to Nia Long during a candid sit-down about his life and discussed his divorce journey.

“This has not been an easy journey," he said. “I’m saddened, I’m disappointed, I’m uneasy.”
