Unsettling details about Jeannie Mai and Jeezy’s divorce have come to light. 

According to legal documents obtained by Complex, Mai has accused her estranged husband of child neglect and at least four instances of physical abuse. The TV personality made the allegations in an April 25 court filing, saying Jeezy — whom she married in March 2021 — had a history of violence and recklessness that put their family in danger.

The Shade Room reports that on Oct. 11, 2023, Mai removed their two-year-old daughter, Monaco, from their Atlanta home after the toddler was discovered with Jeezy’s Louis Vuitton bag that allegedly contained an AK-47. According to court documents, that same firearm was later found on the couple’s bedroom floor, where Monaco could’ve easily accessed it.

Mai also accused Jeezy of assaulting her multiple times over the past two years. One of the alleged instances occurred in January 2022, just three weeks after Mai gave birth to Monaco. The mother claims she and Jeezy were sitting inside a parked car when he began berating her with insults and struck her in the face with a closed fist. Mai said the punch allegedly caused a hemorrhage.

Mai said she and Jeezy decided to work things out and confided in their pastor and therapist later that week. However, Jeezy allegedly attacked Mai just several months during their stay at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in San Francisco. Mai claimed her husband choked her from behind and then pushed her down a flight of stairs, which prompted hotel security to intervene. 

The former The Real co-host also detailed an alleged incident that went down after the 2022 Atlanta Mayor’s Masked Ball hosted by UNCF. Mai said an irate Jeezy demanded they leave the event after she had gone to the bathroom without telling him. Before making their way home, Jeezy allegedly told their driver to get out of the car and proceeded to verbally abuse his wife. Mai claimed she tried exiting the vehicle, but Jeezy managed to pull her back in by grabbing her dress’s neckline. She said Jeezy had torn the garment and left 2- to 3-inch scratch marks on her chest.

According to court documents, Mai “reported this incident to her therapist with [Jeezy] present, and also told her best friend in confidence.”

A third allegation involved a golf cart crash that left Jeezy and Mai injured. The mother submitted text messages in which Jeezy seemingly confirmed he was driving the cart at the time of the crash. Mai also claimed she was unaware that Jeezy was “overly intoxicated” during the incident.

Per Mia’s court filing: “[Jeezy] has a history of threats, violence, and bodily harm. [Mai] mistakenly believed [Jeezy] when he convinced her prior to their marriage that he was a changed man, and his past was in his past, but as one can see from the examples of abuse [Mai] endured during the marriage that has not turned out to be the case.”

Jeezy has vehemently denied Mai’s abuse allegations.

“The allegations are not only false, but also deeply disturbing, especially coming from someone I loved,” Jeezy said in a statement provided to Complex. “This malicious attempt to tarnish my character and disrupt my family is ridiculous. It’s disheartening to witness the manipulation and deceit at play and at this time my main concern is being an active father to our daughter as I continue to fight for court mandated joint custody. Rest assured, the truth will prevail through the proper legal channels.”
