Jeannie Mai Says Yes to Jeezy: They’re Engaged!




“The Real” co-host Jeannie Mai and rapper Jeezy are now engaged.

According to People, the rapper/businessman popped the question during a special date night. The publication says the proposal went down at his LA crib on March 27.

People – which reported the news first – says Jeezy was planning to propose to Mai on a scheduled trip to Vietnam in April. However, the trip was scrapped due to the coronavirus crisis and related travel restrictions. Apparently dude couldn’t wait any longer to wife her up and surprised Jeannie with the proposal during date night inside.

“Jeannie and Jay were set for a trip to Vietnam this April. What Jeannie didn’t know is that Jay was planning to propose. Instead, Jay decided to bring Vietnam to Jeannie with a surprise quarantine date night in his home filled with Vietnamese food and decor,” a rep for Mai said.


For those that don’t know how they got hooked up or forgot, they met on the set of her daytime talk show, “The Real,” and started dating in November 2018. Mai and Jeezy didn’t confirm their romance until August 2019.

“We both went through enough in our life to connect on the understanding that love should feel safe, honest, and pure,” Mai told People about the relationship last November. “Immediately that was a magnetic attraction. We are very attracted to each other’s passions to serve. So because we have a mutual joy of having a purpose, we’re going to find a way to do that together.”

Jeezy, 42 and Mai, 41, also spent Thanksgiving together for the first time in his hometown of Atlanta, where Mai mingled with Jeezy’s extended family and gave back by working with two local nonprofits.

“It was so wonderful to meet his family and be able to spend time together,” she said on The Real at the time. “It was special.”

Mai was previously married to Freddy Harteis. The divorce was officially settled in January 2019.

In the divorce agreement, both parties agreed to waive the right to spousal support. Mai walked away with her $1.2 million Sherman Oaks home, clothing, jewelry and other personal effects. The talk show host kept several bank accounts and her entertainment company Mai Dream Inc.

Her ex-husband walked away with a 2003 Mercedes Benz C-Class, a 2016 Dodge Ram 2500 Power Wagon, a Sprinter Pull Log Trailer, and several other bank accounts.

Nick Gordon, controversial former boyfriend of Bobbi Kristina Brown, has died




Nick Gordon, the former boyfriend of Bobbi Kristina Brown has died.

Jack Walker Jr. confirmed to multiple media outlets, including People, saying:

“We are devastated by the loss of my beautiful brother. He leaves a void in the hearts of my family and his friends, Nick’s battle in life was not an easy one. I will be forever grateful that my God afforded a small moment at the very end of Nick’s life and I was able to hold his hand as he journeyed on.”

In a statement to WSB-TV, Gordon’s attorney, Randall M. Kessler, said: “My heart sunk when I heard the news. This is a tragic ending to Nick’s troubled life.”

A lawsuit claims Gordon was inside Brown’s home in Sandy Springs, Georgia, the night she was found facedown and unconscious in a bathtub in 2015.

Brown died months later.

Throughout the investigation into Brown’s death, Gordon remained a controversial figure.

A lawsuit filed against Gordon in Fulton County Court accused him of giving Brown a “toxic cocktail” and then placing her facedown in a bathtub the day of Brown’s death.

The amended lawsuit claims Gordon returned home Jan. 31 “from being out all night on a cocaine and drinking binge.”

The suit goes on to say Gordon watched video footage of Brown inside the home and listened to her conversations. The two then got into a “loud argument,” during which Gordon accused her of cheating.

That’s when, the lawsuit alleges, Gordon gave Brown the cocktail and placed her facedown “in a tub of cold water, causing her to suffer brain damage.”

In September 2016, a judge found that Gordon was the “responsible party” for the death of Brown.

Six months after Brown died, a medical examiner’s report said Brown died after her face was immersed in water, complicated by a mixed drug interaction.

Tests found marijuana, cocaine and morphine in her system.

But her manner of death remains “undetermined” because investigators can’t conclusively say whether the death was an accident or intentional.

While Brown remained hospitalized, Gordon attempted to visit her but was turned away by Brown’s family.

Gordon had been living in Florida since shortly after Brown’s death. He was 30 years old.
