Jeezy’s filing comes more than two years after he and The Real co-host tied the knot during an intimate ceremony in Atlanta on March 27, 2021. 

Mai and Jeezy were first linked in January 2019, and a source confirmed their relationship to ET in April 2019. They made things Instagram official in September 2019.

After nearly a year of dating, Mai and Jeezy became engaged in March 2020 at the rapper’s Los Angeles home. In a statement to People, Mai’s rep said Jeezy was initially going to pop the question during a trip to Vietnam, but changed his plans when the vacation was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In September 2021, the couple announced they were expecting their first child together. She gave birth to daughter Monaco that following January. Jeezy is also dad to three older children — Jadarius, Shyheim and Amra — from previous relationships. 

For their March 2021 wedding, the couple invited Vogue along for the ride, and the fashion magazine captured Mai looking stunning in a custom nude Galia Lahav wedding gown with a corset top detailed with appliqués, and a billowing skirt. She completed the look with a handmade headpiece with a 15-foot Galia Lahav veil and diamond and morganite drop earrings created by Rosalina Lydster. For his part, Jeezy donned a bespoke champagne blush suit, designed by his favorite tailor, Teofilo Flor, and stylist Chris Shelby.
