“[Jeannie] deeply loves Jeezy, and she wants to work things out. She did not get married to get divorced. This was not a part of the plan. This is not how she ever imagined things would go down,” the source continued.

“Even though Jeezy has filed, Jeannie is holding out hope that he would be willing to sit down and work things [out]. She is hoping for a resolution and wants to remain as a united family unit,” the informant revealed.

Given the San Jose native's desperation to save her marriage, one might wonder where it all went wrong for the former power couple. According to a different source, the soon-to-be divorcees had contrasting opinions about “certain family values and expectations.”

The insider claimed the duo's differences eventually pushed Jeezy to pull the plug on their marriage. “They had different views, and each felt like their needs weren’t being completely met,” the individual claimed.

A Fortune Teller Predicted The End Of Jeannie Mai's Relationship

Following news of the "How Do I Look?" alum's separation from Jeezy, a resurfaced clip showed that the 44-year-old had been warned about her divorce. The January 2022 video came from an episode of Mai's “Hello Hunnay with Jeannie Mai” YouTube channel.

The footage, which went viral after the couple's split, captured the media personality with her mother, Olivia TuTram Mai, and an Asian astrologer named Jung Vin Fat. The then-pregnant star referred to the clairvoyant medium as “Joe,” asking him to read her horoscope and uncover if Jeezy would be her last husband.

“Okay, on your palm, you have a second one,” Joe revealed, to which the mother of one clarified that she was currently in her second marriage. After rechecking her charts, the fortune teller claimed Mai had been destined with two marriages unless she wanted more.

“Let me tell you this, 95 percent, you have–this is the second one. If you want to go more than that, it’s up to you,” the palm reader explained. When the TV host vehemently refused to have a third marriage, the astrologer stated the future was affected by her actions and God’s will.

“Let me tell you this, when you get married, with this one, the second one, if you look more than that, it depends on you because this is based on God,” Joe continued. “The day, the time, the year you’re born, this already have it.”
