Jeannie Mai once admitted that her "hot temper" was affecting her and Jeezy's relationship.

Jeannie Mai admitted that she has a "really hot temper" with Jeezy during an interview on the Lovers and Friends Podcast, which is resurfacing online amid the rapper's filing for divorce. Jeezy is seeking joint custody of their daughter in the separation.

During the Lovers and Friends clip, Mai explains: “I have a really hot temper. Not a lot of people know this; it’s just something in my family…but I didn’t notice it in myself until I was with Jeezy.” She was previously married to Freddy Harteis for 10 years. From there, she explained how her temper affected the relationship: “It has to do with the type of relationship you have and the type of respect you have for that person to mirror things back to you.”

Mai continued: “Here’s a person who is my equal, and when I would spew some of my hold habits and he was like, ‘Uh uh, like, that’s not flying here’ and also it would trigger him to come back at me with things where I was like, ‘Who the f—k do you think you are?’ But I was triggering him, so through work, we learned that we both have certain habits.” Check out the full clip below.
