It seemed like just another Friday in September until news broke that Jeezy, 45, filed for divorce from Jeannie Mai, 44, after two years of seemingly happy matrimony.
The unexpected bombshell was confirmed by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution which reports that the filing was made Thursday in Fulton County Superior Court and notes that Jeezy (real name Jay Jenkins) is already separated from his wife.

In March of 2021, the two wed in an intimate ceremony at their Atlanta home with Jeannie gushing over the union a few months later in an interview with ET.
"Oh my god. Married life feels 1,000 percent different than when we were dating, in the greatest way," said Mai.
"I loved our dating life because we really spent such concentrated quality time getting to know each other and making sure that we were right for each other. And now being married, it's even more handled with such delicacy and such thoughtfulness, because we're in our 40s and we both grew up in households that weren't healthy marriages. We have never seen what that looks like."
The two have a prenuptial agreement and Jeezy is seeking joint legal custody of their daughter, Monaco Mai Jenkins, who was born in January 2022, adds the publication.

Mai was spotted on August 3 supporting her soon-to-be ex-husband at Atlanta's Tabernacle concert venue for Prime Video's 50 & Forever Featuring Jeezy & Special Guests."
Prior to that, Mai was noticeably absent from Jeezy's social media since May when he sent her a Mother's Day message.
Naturally, social media exploded with reactions to the divorce filing and dug up Jeannie's now-infamous "dark on the side" clip that we're still not 100% sure Jeezy saw before marrying her.
