In a surprising turn of events, rapper Jeezy, 45, has filed for divorce from his wife, TV host Jeannie Mai, 44, on Thursday in Atlanta, Georgia. According to documents obtained by PEOPLE, the couple, who were married for two-and-a-half years, had a prenuptial agreement in place.

Jeezy’s filing states that the former couple is currently “living in a bona fide state of separation” and that their marriage is “irretrievably broken” with “no hope for reconciliation.” This announcement comes as a shock to their fans and the entertainment industry as a whole, as the couple seemed to be going strong.

One key detail mentioned in the divorce documents is that the rapper is seeking joint legal custody of their daughter, Monaco, indicating his commitment to being part of their child’s life.

Representatives for both Jeezy and Jeannie Mai have not immediately responded to PEOPLE’s request for comment. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution was the first to report the news.

Jenkins and Jeezy, whose real name is Jay Jenkins, exchanged vows in a beautiful ceremony at their home in Atlanta in March 2021. Their joy was further compounded when they welcomed their daughter, Monaco, into the world in January 2022.

The couple celebrated their two-year anniversary in March with a heartwarming surprise trip to Vietnam. Jeannie Mai had organized this adventure for her husband, which turned out to be a “long-awaited adventure” for the two of them.

Speaking about their unique bond, Jeannie once shared, “When Jeezy and I met, we bonded over the similarities and differences of our cultures. Now that we have a daughter, blending our worlds gives even more meaning to explore Vietnam together as a multicultural family.”

This unexpected divorce announcement has left fans and followers of the couple in shock and has raised questions about the reasons behind the separation. As details emerge, the public eagerly awaits statements from both Jeezy and Jeannie Mai regarding the future of their relationship and the well-being of their daughter, Monaco.
