Jeezy Explains Conversation He Had With Jeannie Mai About Her ‘Dark Meat’ Comments
When Jeannie Mai and Jeezy publicized their relationship last year, many reminded her about controversial comments she once made about black men on daytime talk show The Real.
She said on the show in 2014:
“I loved Black guys. For me, dark meat on the side; white keeps me mean and lean. You know? That’s why I married a white man. That’s what I like.”
At the time, she was married to her now ex-husband Freddy Harteis, who she divorced in 2017. She added:
“What I’m saying is I really do think Black men are attractive!…When I think about men, I like dark men. I used to date Black men. I think they’re attractive. But when I decided to stick to – because it just kept me happiest – was my man Freddy, who just happens to be White.”
Now, Jeezy has revealed the conversation he had with Jeannie Mai about her remarks. He said Friday (Nov. 20th):
“I’m a tell y’all how real she is. Before we even started dating we had that conversation. When we really talked, she sat me down, she said ‘Listen, it was something that I said and it might’ve gotten taken out of context. I want you to listen to it in its entirety.’ And I did. I think you guys do journalism, people can take what they want. I know her people, I know her family. I ain’t never felt no sense of racism.”

“She comes from The Bay… She knows E-40 better than me. So, I just think sometimes people look for things in people. But at the same time I’m a good judge of character. I’m not gonna do nothing that’s gonna jeopardize my integrity. She’s so solid. That’s one of the first conversations we had. I was like ‘You different.'”
