Jeannie Mai is mending her heart.
More than two months after her estranged husband Jeezy filed for divorce, The Real cohost reflected on when she learned their marriage was over.
"I think I'm doing better now," Jeannie said on the Dec. 4 episode of The Jennifer Hudson Show. "At the time, when I found out at the same time as the rest of the world that my marriage was ending in divorce, I was gutted. Today, it's about picking up the pieces. It's about discovering me and being a mom to the best blessing in my life, my little girl."
Indeed, Jeannie—who shares daughter Monaco, 23 months, with Jeezy—is focusing on the positives as she moves toward the future and noted she's taking things "day by day."
"Even though this year I met the most broken version of me," she later added, "I also met the strongest version of me today."
Jeezy—real name Jay Wayne Jenkins—filed for divorce from Jeannie in September after nearly two and a half years of marriage. According to court documents obtained by E! News, the rapper asked for joint physical and legal custody of their daughter and for their prenuptial agreement to be enforced. Calling their marriage "irretrievably broken," Jeezy added that the former couple was "living in a bona fide state of separation."
However, Jeannie's own legal filing tells a different story. While the Hello Hunnay YouTuber agreed in her November response that their marriage is "irretrievably broken," she "denies the parties were living in a bona fide state of separation" at the time of Jeezy's filing. According to court documents obtained by E! News, Jeannie asked for primary physical custody of Monaco as well as joint legal custody with her having final decision-making authority.
And when it comes to their prenuptial agreement, Jeannie asked that the court specifically enforces the paragraph "regarding infidelity." According to the documents, should either party be unfaithful—with the prenup spelling out what constitutes as cheating—they could face a "significant financial penalty."
However, Jeezy is slamming any suggestion that he cheated on Jeannie, with his rep telling Us Weekly that "any claim of infidelity on Mr. Jenkins' behalf are 100 percent false." E! News has also reached out to his rep for comment but has not heard back.
