Jeannie Mai Speaks On Her Divorce From Jeezy
On Thursday (Oct. 12), Jeannie Mai sat down with fellow television personality Sherri Shepherd on her nationally syndicated talk show, Sherri. As soon as Jeannie walks onto the set and sits down, she immediately addresses her divorce from Jeezy and how she’s handling being separated from the Atlanta rap legend.
“I’m not going to lie,” Jeannie Mai begins in the video clip below. “It takes every day to just to really sit and just be quiet with your thoughts, take care of me. But one thing I know is, you give God your pain, he will give you his power, period. So, every day, I’m like, ‘Here you go. You got room for more? Here’s some more.’ Just taking it day by day.”
Jeannie later adds: “Turning off everything helps, too. After that moment, I just turned off every single device in my house and I really tuned into the voices I really needed to hear, which was me and the truth.”
Mai finished the conversation by explaining that she and Jeezy’s 1-year-old daughter, Monaco Mai Jenkins, is her “north star” and that she doesn’t know if she could handle the divorce situation without her.
