“Jeannie and Jay were set for a trip to Vietnam this April. What Jeannie didn’t know is that Jay was planning to propose,” Mai’s representative told the publication. “Instead, Jay decided to bring Vietnam to Jeannie with a surprise quarantine date night in his home filled with Vietnamese food and decor.”
Mai and Jeezy met on the set of her daytime talk show and began seeing each other in November 2018. They did not reveal their relationship until August 2019 when they were seen walking arm-in-arm on the red carpet at the rapper’s gala for his non-profit Street Dreamz.

Mai told People in November
. “Immediately that was a magnetic attraction. We are very attracted to each other’s passions to serve. So because we have a mutual joy of having purpose, we’re going to find a way to do that together.”
