It was a shock that reverberated through the music and entertainment industries when reports confirmed that Jeezy filed to divorce Jeannie Mai, whom he wed two years ago.

Since then, speculation has begun to surface about why Jeezy may have filed for divorce.

Shine My Crown was able to piece together some clues, which some say may have had something to do with why the marriage did not last.

In a clip that has since surfaced online, before meeting Jeezy, Jeannie explained that she liked “dark meat on the side,” but “white keeps me mean and lean.”

Then, in another clip that has since surfaced, Jeannie discusses how she has dealt with a lineage of temper tantrum issues, which has also affected her relationships.

“I have a really hot temper…not a lot of people know this, but it’s just something in my family,” she said. “I saw it in my grandfather to my grandmother to my mom to my aunts to me,” she said. “But I didn’t notice it in myself until I was with Jeezy.”

On Saturday, Shine My Crown reported that Jeannie and Jeezy were going their separate ways.

After two-and-a-half years of marriage, the Soul Survivor rapper, 45 filed for divorce from The Real co-host, 44.

According to court documents obtained by People, the pair had a prenuptial agreement in place when they wed.

Born Jay Wayne Jenkins, the South Carolina native said in court filings that the couple are “currently living in a bona fide state of separation,” adding that the marriage is “irretrievably broken” with “no hope for reconciliation.”

The documents also reveal that Jeezy wants joint legal custody of their daughter, Monaco, 2.

Jeezy and Jeannie wed in a lavish ceremony in their Atlanta home in March 2021 and had their first child together in January 2022.

For their two-year anniversary, the former couple visited Vietnam, which Jeannie said was a “long-awaited adventure.”

“When Jeezy and I met, we bonded over the similarities and differences of our cultures,” she told People at the time. “Now that we have a daughter, blending our worlds, it gives even more meaning to explore Vietnam together as a multicultural family.”

She further added that her former husband wanted to propose to her in Hoi An, Vietnam in April 2020, but after COVID-19, hit, they were forced to change plans.

“When Jeezy proposed to me, he decorated his condo to look like Hoi An. Jeannie said. “It brought the memories of our engagement full circle when we were finally in Hoi An for the first time.”

It was in 2018 when the couple met while on the set of Jeannie’s talk show The Real. They would soon start seeing each other privately until they publicly announced they were dating a year later.

“We both went through enough in our life to connect on the understanding that love should feel safe, honest, and pure,” Jeannie said. “Immediately, that was a magnetic attraction. We are very attracted to each other’s passions to serve. So because we have a mutual joy of having purpose, we’re going to find a way to do that together.”
