Jeezy Wants Divorce Documents With Jeannie Mai Sealed To Protect Daughter From ‘Contentious’ Split

Rapper Jeezy is attempting to keep his 'contentious' divorce battle with Jeannie Mai out of the public eye.

Rapper Jeezy is attempting to keep his “contentious” divorce battle with Jeannie Mai private and out of the public eye.

Radar Online reports that the rapper/entrepreneur recently filed a motion asking the judge to seal “sensitive personal and financial information” and anything related to their daughter Monaco as the divorce case heats up. Jeezy, real name Jay Wayne Jenkins, cites his and Mai’s celebrity status as “public figures” and claims the press has harassed the former couple since his initial divorce filing last September.

Jeezy filed in Fulton County Court in Georgia on Feb. 21, ahead of his court date with Mai this month.

“Since the filing of this action, they and, most importantly, their Child, have become the subject of intense media scrutiny and publications in connection with their divorce action that are directly contrary to the best interests of the Child,” Jeezy’s filing states.

The “Put On” rapper filed for divorce from Mai last year, claiming the two-year marriage was “irretrievably broken.” Since then, Jeezy says the relationship with the former talk show host has only worsened.

“In addition, this litigation, tragically, is becoming increasingly more contentious and, as a result, it is inevitable that sensitive personal and financial information, and information related to the Child, will necessarily be discussed and disclosed as the parties explore the issues incident to their divorce,” the filing states.

Jeezy and Mai had a court hearing scheduled in Fulton County Superior Court on March 1, where both parties were to bring their lawyers to hash out issues like custody and their prenup. Mai has asked a judge to deny Jeezy’s request to enforce the prenup due to her “legitimate concerns” about the accuracy of his financial disclosure and the “quick nature” in which she was forced to sign the agreement.

Jeezy has accused Mai of “gatekeeping” their daughter since the split, something Mai denies and cites her concerns for Monaco’s safety when in Jeezy’s care due to his firearms.

“It is essential to clarify that Ms. Jenkins’ insistence on reasonable safety measures being put in place, such as safely securing and locking away all firearms that have been unsecure in the past, as well as having familiarity and properly trained caregivers is absolutely not gatekeeping, but rather a responsible effort to prioritize their daughter’s well-being,” a document Mai filed in December states.
