It’s always the relationships you never see coming that turn out to be the couples you route for. While celebrity relationships are always a hot topic, fans love when unlikely couples stand the test of time and find lasting love.
And that was the situation with The Real host Jeannie Mai and rapper Young Jeezy.
While the two were considered to be a random pair, they gave us all a strong dose of couple goals initially. After all, Jeannie’s previous divorce was heartbreaking to watch and fans wanted to see her find love again.
So, when the announcement that Jeannie and Jeezy got engaged was announced fans were thrilled and anticipating their nuptials. But where does their relationship stand today?
So, when did Jeezy and Jeannie tie the knot?
At first, Jeannie and Jeezy were a solid couple. After all, they both professed their love for one another during media interviews and on their respective Instagrams. And while many of waited to see their glitzy wedding come to life, the pandemic reared its ugly head and halted their plans.
Jeannie wasn't shy about stating that a double wedding would be ideal — since a traditional Vietnamese wedding and another ceremony would allow the couple to celebrate their cultures. However, the couple was delayed like many engaged pairs due to COVID-19.
Eventually, love won and they didn’t allow the state of the world to get in the way of them tying the knot. The couple tied the knot at their home on March 27, 2021, exactly one year after their engagement.
Jeezy pulled out all the stops for Jeannie’s engagement ring.
They don’t call Jeezy a baller for no reason. The “Soul Survivor” rapper was completely smitten with Jeannie. So, of course, it was only right that he went the extra mile with the engagement ring.
And boy did the rapper come correct. According to E! News, Jeezy spent at least $150,000 on the rock. In fact, jewelry experts claim that the ring is truly one of a kind.
“Her ring looks like a gorgeous 4-5ct marquise cut diamond set in a thicker pave diamond setting featuring a tiny emerald in her band," Olivia Landau CEO of The Clear Cut told the publication.
Sadly, after much fanfare surrounding their engagement and wedding, Jeannie and Jeezy have hit a rough patch — or worse. Reportedly, the couple we rooted for years ago is no more.
There's sad news for fans as Young Jeezy files for divorce from Jeannie Mai.
Following a fairytale wedding, the couple you never saw coming went on to welcome a baby together. Indeed in January 2022, their daughter Monaco was born, per People.
But just as you thought this family was destined for a happy ending, in September 2023, it was reported that Jeezy filed for divorce. According to court documents, the rapper stated the estranged spouses are "currently living in a bona fide state of separation," and cited the marriage is "irretrievably broken" with "no hope for reconciliation."
In a cryptic Instagram post shared as the announcement of a separation went public, Jeezy wrote, "Too focused on who I'm becoming to focus on who's not coming with me."
Critics were not shy about blasting the artist over the post as being insensitive. All we can say is we wish both parties peace as they move forward.
