Jeannie Mai is opening up about life as a single mother amid her on-going difficult divorce proceedings from 46-year-old rapper, Jezzy.

The 45-year-old mother told People Magazine in a recent Zoom interview that she was finding a bit of peace amidst the chaos.


“I’m doing good. I was able to get good sleep last night, which is always a big deal. My days now are ranked on whether or not I had six hours or eight hours. Last night I got seven so I feel very good about that. I’m blessed.”

“I think the fact that I surround myself with so many things that I love to do. whether it’s working out, finding new play dates and things that Monaco likes to do like ballet or scootering…I’ve been researching how I can get more music into her life. And also cooking. Cooking has really been my big thing. There is no room for feeling lost in your life when you fill it with things that you love for you.”

Mai goes on in the interview stating that she is “managing” being a single mother.

“I’ve just been managing it. I take every single issue, whether it’s my career or it’s my parenting skills or my personal time, I take it as I need and I give it my full attention when I’m in it.”

Mai continues, “I’m so thankful that I get to focus on the things that matter more than anything else in the world. That’s Monaco and Jeannie. Those are the only two things that matter to me right now. So whatever it takes to make sure we are healthy, happy and safe, I’m going to do whatever it takes.”

Mai admits that to accomplish her parenting goals, she leans on her village. “The best part is how willing I am to learn and listen from other moms of what works for them. I’m constantly on group chats with my friends.”
