According to Complex, earlier this month, Jeezy stated that Jeannie Mai was acting as a "gatekeeper" with their one-year-old daughter and filed a motion to request a custody hearing. The Atlanta rap star claimed the "lack of consistency, continuity, and stability inherently associated with such a haphazard and fluid parenting time schedule" has become a "stressful" issue for the daughter.

Jeannie responded to his claims, saying she's concerned with gun safety when their daughter spends time with Jeezy but has not disallowed him from seeing their daughter Monaco. Her lawyers stated: "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 unsecured 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." 

Other issues have surfaced amid the couple's divorce. Per the divorce petition that several media outlets have obtained, Jeannie stated that the rap star cheated during their marriage and wants to invoke the clause in their prenuptial agreement that states a financial penalty will be applied to whatever partner in the marriage who cheated. The applicable section of the petition reads as follows: "Wife further shows that the court should enforce Paragraph 8 of the Prenuptial Agreement regarding infidelity which provides, in pertinent part, that in the event that either party engages in sexual relations, an emotional relationship, or is emotionally or sexually suggestive in communication with a third party via all forms of electronic communications, including but not limited to texting, sexting, Facetiming, social media and/or Direct Messages, shall result in a significant financial penalty upon the adulterous party." Jeezy negates any claims of infidelity; according to a comment provided to US Weekly, his lawyers stated, "Any claim of infidelity on Mr. Jenkins' behalf are 100 percent false and we have no further statements at this time." 

The couple married in 2021 and welcomed their daughter in 2022. The rapper filed for divorce this past September. He advised the public that filing for divorce was not easy; he stated, "The decision to end this chapter in my life was not made impulsively and comes with a heavy heart,"
