During the a hour-long conversation, Jeezy got candid about his split from Jeannie, childhood trauma, and his estranged relationship with his late mother.

The couple who share one child together, were married for a total of two-and-a-half years when Jeezy filed for divorce this past September, citing “irreconcilable differences.”

Just putting this out there, but one of those possible differences could potentially be Jeezy’s lack of experiencing love— just going based off what he told Long.

“As I sit here at 46… I can’t honestly tell you I’ve ever experienced love, especially not unconditional.” Despite this, he did go on to admit that the divorce hasn’t been without it’s difficulties. Noting, it “has not been an easy journey,” adding, “I can tell you that I'm sad. I can tell you that I'm disappointed. I can tell you that I'm uneasy.” The rapper also shared that before arriving at the discussion to separate, he and Mai tried therapy.

While love, or unconditional love is apparently not in Jeezy’s feeling dictionary, he did mention the sentiment in his public statement regarding the break up, released just last month. “The decision to end this chapter in my life was not made impulsively and comes with a heavy heart. Despite this, my love and respect for Jeannie remains and the time we spent together holds a cherished place in my heart.”

Elsewhere in the interview with Nia, Jeezy recollected on how his “grandmother was very religious” and would always make sure he was in church and Sunday school. Realizing later in life, his grandmother urged him to turn to God as a coping mechanism for traumas he’d experienced at a young age.
