On Tuesday (Nov. 7), Jeezy unveiled a sit-down with actress Nia Long that served as an accompaniment to his 13th studio LP, I Might Forgive… But I Don’t Forget. The hourlong conversation saw the Atlanta star at his most vulnerable to date, beginning with his revelation about being molested as a child.
“The first [activation of trauma] was being left with a babysitter that was a woman that was older, and her touching and doing things to me that don’t normally happen to kids,” he said. “So, I was introduced to sex at a very young age.”
Jeezy got candid about his two-year marriage to Jeannie Mai. He filed for divorce from the television host back in September. “This has not been an easy journey. I can tell you that I’m sad,” he admitted to Long. “I can tell you that I’m disappointed. I can tell you that I’m uneasy. But God has put me on a different path, and that path is gonna entail for me to take care of myself, and to love myself, and to be in the best situation that I can thrive as someone who’s been through all of the things that I’ve been through.”
He also spoke on attempting therapy to save his union with Mai. “I can only be responsible for myself,” he added. “I can only do what I can do. I can’t expect someone else to do what I’m doing.”
As REVOLT previously reported, Jeezy first broke his silence about the split in October. “The decision to end this chapter in my life was not made impulsively and comes with a heavy heart,” the 46-year-old shared in a statement to TMZ. “Despite this, my love and respect for Jeannie remains and the time we spent together holds a cherished place in my heart.”
