Jeannie Mai has removed her last name, Jenkins, from her Instagram account amid her ongoing divorce from Jeezy. The rapper filed for separation in Fulton County Superior Court in Atlanta, Georgia, last month, after two years of marriage. A source for Entertainment Tonight claimed that the move came as a surprise for Mai, who had celebrated the release of Jeezy's memoir, Adversity For Sale, just days beforehand.

When The Jasmine Brand noted the Instagram switch, fans had mixed responses to the move. One fan commented: "I’m Supporting Jeezy like they did Tia Mowry." Another user wrote: "Yes Jeani he humiliated you, he is not husband material. Husbands should treat their wives with utmost respect. He will do it again and again if given the chance."

"I'm just focusing on Monaco and focusing on things that I'm passionate about. When you're surrounded by people, you just get to laugh and look at things that you enjoy doing in life."
