Jeannie Mai Tearfully Recalls Finding Love w/ New Fiance Jeezy After Divorce: He Had Been Broken Like Me [WATCH]
Jeannie Mai, who announced her engagement to rapper Jeezy this week, shared her thoughts on her YouTube channel.
“When I actually sat down on November 28, 2018 with Jay ,the minute I sat down we locked eyes. You guys, when I say the minute, a minute is even too long — the millisecond that I saw his eyes I just like immediately knew that he was special.”
She tears up as she continues:
“I knew that he had like a.. I just saw this like crazy kindness in his eyes and this humility. He like me, hasn’t made the best choices in life. This didn’t always turn out the way it was supposed to, but in our careers we look like we have all the answers. We look like yo, these people can’t possibly live a day being unhappy. But I could see right away that he had been broken like me. It was insane. So, I was able to connect with that. We are great at where we are at right now, as far as spending each day to unveil more of each other, and appreciate it.
She ended with a message:
“I absolutely, positively know that I couldn’t have fallen in love today, if I hadn’t fallen in love with myself. At the end of the day, you’re already with the one person you’re gonna spend the rest of your life with, and that’s yourself. So you have to really enjoy who that person is.”
The couple started dating back in 2018 after meeting on the set of “The Real” a couple of years before.
Congrats to Jeannie & Jeezy!
