AceShowbiz - Things between Jeezy (formerly Young Jeezy) and Jeannie Mai are apparently not that amicable following their split. The rapper has revealed there is "tension" between them as they are battling it out in court over the custody of their only child amid divorce.
The 46-year-old, who is also a father to three other children, filed a motion requesting a temporary hearing regarding custody of their 1-year-old daughter Monaco. In court documents, he said, "The lack of consistency, continuity, and stability inherently associated with such a haphazard and fluid parenting time schedule is stressful to the Child, and it has, as is unfortunately inevitable with all families in transition, created unnecessary tension and confusion regarding not only parenting time but also in regard to each parent's role and rights when the Child is in their respective custody."
The "Put On" rhymer went on accusing his estranged wife of acting "as a gatekeeper when it comes to [Jeezy] exercising parenting time with the child as well as in regard to [Jeezy's] parenting rights and as the Child's father." Though so, he doesn't believe Jeannie is "acting maliciously or with specific intent to harm" his relationship with their child.
"[Jeannie's] interference with [Jeezy's] relationship with the Child, again, while not generated from or with malicious intent, is nevertheless, causing confusion and tension between the parties and is working to stifle the development of [Jeezy's] relationship with the Child," he argued.
According to the docs, since Jeezy filed for divorce on September 14, the toddler has been "temporarily residing" in the estranged couple's Los Angeles home with Jeannie. "Since that time, the parties have endeavored to address temporary custodial arrangements on an informal basis," the docs read.
The filing further noted, "While the parties have agreed upon a visitation schedule through the end of 2023, which has been confirmed via communications between their counsel, to continue addressing custodial and parenting time issues in such an ad hoc manner is becoming increasingly less feasible."
Jeannie has been reported to have been "devastated that Jeezy filed for divorce" as she "wants her marriage to work and wants her family to be one solid unit." Jeezy, meanwhile, claimed that they had attempted to go to therapy before his decision to pull the plug on their marriage.
