Jeezy Admits He Went to Therapy to Try to Save His Marriage With Jeannie Mai
Jeezy Opens Up in New Interview
On Tuesday (Nov. 7), Jeezy released an over hour-long interview with actress Nia Long on his YouTube channel in promotion of his new album, I Might Forgive... But I Don't Forget. During the sit-down, which can be viewed below, Jeezy speaks to Long, who recently went through a divorce herself, about his own divorce from television show host Jeannie Mai,
"This has not been an easy journey," Jeezy says around the 54-minute mark of the interview, without going into detail about the issues. "I can tell you that I'm saddened. I can tell you that I'm disappointed. I can tell you that I'm uneasy. Again, God has put me in a different path. And that path is going to intel for me to take care or myself. And to love myself and to be in the best situation that I can thrive as someone who has been through all the things I've been through."
Jeezy later confirms he and Jeannie tried therapy to save their marriage, to no avail.
"I can only be responsible for myself," he added. "I can only do what I can do. I can't expect someone else to do what I'm doing."
Jeezy and Jeannie Mai Getting Divorced
News first broke in September that Jeezy has filed for divorce from Jeannie Mai, with whom he has a 1-year-old daughter. Mai broke her silence on the matter during an October episode of the talk show Sherri.
"I'm not going to lie," Mai said. "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."
Jeezy has also released a statement about the divorce, but mostly remained mum on the issue.
