Stylist Jeannie Mai Jenkins Is ‘Trying to save her marriage’ despite her rapper husband Jeezy’s divorce filing earlier this month.
“She got married to stay married,” the insider revealed to People.
“She’s committed to trying to save her marriage.”
A second source reveals that the problems between the pair escalated recently, sharing, “They’ve had issues for a long time, but things got really hard over the last few months.”
While Jenkins is hoping to work on their marriage, Jeezy, 45, posted to Instagram shortly after filing for divorce that he was focusing on himself.
“Too focused on who I’m becoming to focus on who’s not coming with me,” wrote Jeezy, who was married to Jenkins for two-and-a-half years.
In his filing, the Grammy-nominated star said the former couple — who had a prenuptial agreement in place — are “currently living in a bona fide state of separation,” and that their marriage is “irretrievably broken” with “no hope for reconciliation.”
The document also stated that Jeezy (né Jay Jenkins) wants to share joint legal custody of the pair’s daughter, Monaco. (He’s also dad to two children from previous relationships.)
Nine days before the divorce news broke, Jenkins shared a sweet Instagram post that showed her and Monaco celebrating Jeezy making the New York Times Best Sellers list for his book, Adversity for Sale.
Jenkins and Jeezy tied the knot in March 2021 at their home in Atlanta, and welcomed their daughter in January 2022.
The pair celebrated their two-year anniversary in March with a surprise trip to Vietnam that Jenkins organised for her husband as a “long-awaited adventure.”
