The 46-year-old Grammy-nominated artiste Jeezy filed for divorce from the former The Real co-host Jeannie Mai in September after two years of marriage.

Court documents filed reveal that Jeezy requested a judge to “address temporary custodial arrangements” after the previously agreed-upon visitation schedule became “increasingly less feasible.”

“There is no question that both parties were capable of reading and understanding the terms and provisions of the agreement,” Jeezy’s motion argued. “Both parties are public figures who are no strangers to a contract.”

It continued, “It is indisputable that the prenuptial agreement was not obtained through mistake, misrepresentation, or nondisclosure of material facts. Specifically, both parties were vigorously represented by independent counsel in the negotiations.”

Jeezy filed for divorce in September. He released a statement about the split in October which stated:

“The decision to end this chapter in my life was not made impulsively and comes with a heavy heart,” he said. “Despite this, my love and respect for Jeannie remain, and the time we spent together holds a cherished place in my heart.”

The have also been several court filings revealing Mai accusing Jeezy of cheating, which allegedly violated the terms of their prenup.

“Wife further shows that the court should enforce Paragraph 8 of the prenuptial agreement regarding infidelity, which provides, in pertinent part, that in the event that either party engages in sexual relations, an emotional relationship, or is emotionally or sexually suggestive in communication with a third party via all forms of electronic communications, including but not limited to texting, sexting, FaceTiming, social media, and/or direct messages, shall result in a significant financial penalty upon the adulterous party,” her lawyers contended.

A rep for Jeezy denied any infidelity and also claimed Mai was “gatekeeping” their daughter from him. Mai is refuting claims that she is acting as the “gatekeeper” of her daughter with her estranged husband, Jeannie Mai, 44, therefore had filed a response to Jeezy’s accusation saying she has complied fully with Jeezy’s requests for precise dates to see Monaco, including extending their time together over the Christmas break.

The former “The Real” co-host is adamant that she is not interfering with the “Seen It All” artist’s bond with their daughter. Jeannie Mai has, however, expressed worries about the presence of weapons in Jeezy’s residence and she was only concerned for their child’s safety.

Jeezy and Mai share a 1-year-old daughter, Monaco, whom the couple welcomed in January 2022.
