The 41-year-old Capricorn rocked a loose fit, faded denim outfit with black heels and a bedazzled face mask whereas the "Love in This Club" rapper, a 43-year-old Libra, wore matching jeans with a maroon army fatigue sweater and matching shoes.

Jeezy carried a doggy bag and the couple held hands on their way to his leased Ferrari.

Jeannie is still getting backlash from Black women regarding her comments about being a "submissive wife" when she and Jeezy tie the knot.

"Well for me, submit does not mean that you are lower or less important than your man," Jeannie told Tamron Hall.

"Of course, Jay and I respect each other very equally. What I mean is in my work life, in my actual life, I own my businesses, I run my team, I make all of the decisions and I lead entirely in the outside of my life. So in my home, I want my man to lead. I want him to take in what I would like and what my wishes are, what my dreams are, and then incorporate it, making the overall decision that’s best for our vision together."

On the Thursday, October 8th edition of "Tamron Hall," Jeannie discussed her public statement about her plans to "submit" to her fiancé Jeezy, born Jay Jenkins, after she gets married. Mai's revelation was met with mixed response on social media, but she had a ready explanation:

"Well for me, submit does not mean that you are lower or less important than your man," Jeannie said.

Jeannie dismissed social media's reaction to her statement:

"Girl, I am 41, I don't care what kind of pushback I get from other women out there. This is my life and you know coming out of divorce and also making a major decision to marry again after being blessed to fall in love and finding such a beautiful person, I want to be very clear and open about how our life can be so that we make sure that our vision is aligned and that we both are empathetic to each other and know that this is the structure we’re going into. I think the biggest mistake that you can make is not communicating what you want and not setting it up for a win."

"Tamron Hall" airs Thursday, Oct. 8 on OWN Network.

Amanda Seales has parted ways with The Real daytime talk show following a fight with former co-host Jeannie Mai, according to published reports.

The comedian shocked fans when she announced she's leaving her hosting gig after just 6 months on the job.

MTO News reports that Amanda walked off the set after she got into a heated argument with outspoken co-host Jeannie, who is engaged to rapper Jeezy.

But publicly, Amanda claims she left because the show's producers kept censoring her.

"I didn't renew it, because it doesn't feel good to my soul to be at a place where I can not, speak to my people the way they need to be spoken to," she explained.

"I'm not at a space where as a full Black woman I can have my voice and my co-workers also have their voices and where the people at the top are not respecting the necessity for Black voices to be at the top too."

Amanda was a controversial co-host who didn't bite her tongue and constantly butted heads with producers and her co-hosts behind the scenes.

Inside sources say her co-hosts - Jeannie, Adrienne Houghton, Loni Love, and Tamera Mowry-Housley - are happy to see her go.

Co-host Loni Love unfollowed Seales on social media.

Jasmine Sanders has had her pick of singers, rappers and ball players over the years. But she claims rapper Jeezy wasn't one of them.

The blonde beauty accused a man of sliding into her DMs on social media. Her followers assumed the man was Jeezy, who was previously linked to the Sports Illustrated model.

But Jasmine claims Jeezy is not that guy -- even though she mentioned the man being engaged.

Jeezy is engaged to television personality Jeannie Mai.

"Jeezy and I never dated," Jasmine wrote on Twitter. "He did not slide in my DMs. Stop reaching. You have the wrong guy."

That's so sweet of her. She must really like Jeezy to lie for him.

We know that Jasmine was Jeezy's date at his birthday party back in 2011. Check out the pictures from the party. Maybe Jasmine has a different definition for "date" than we do?

Question: Would you lie for your ex to save his engagement to another woman?

Jeannie Mai's fiancee Jeezy has some explaining to do. His ex-girlfriend Jasmine Sanders is tired of Jeezy sliding into her DMs to rekindle their romance.

Jasmine took to Twitter.com to blast an ex-boyfriend whom she claims is "constantly" sliding in her DMs. The ex-boyfriend, according to Jasmine, says he's just trying to "check up" on her.

Jasmine believes her ex is trying to creep on the low. She put him on blast, writing: "Does your fiancee know you're sliding in my DMs."

Jasmine's followers guessed that her ex is Jeezy who is engaged to TV host Jeannie Mai.

So far, Jeannie hasn't responded to Jasmine's messy posts. Jeannie's keeping herself busy planning her wedding to the former drug dealer.

It is typical of newly engaged men to reach out to their exes to see if they've still got it -- or if they can still get it.

Men are so predictable, aren't they?

Jeezy wants his followers to know he is head over heels in Love with TV host Jeannie Mai. Rumors are swirling that Jeezy is having second thoughts about making Jeannie his life partner.

But Jeezy took to Instagram to convince his followers that the rumors are false - and that he could not be happier.

"Would say 4 life but that's not long enough ... Infinity," Jeezy wrote in an Instagram post alongside a photo that showed the regal rapper posing with Jeannie on Thursday.

The 41-year-old co-host of The Real TV talk show accepted Jeezy's proposal in March. The couple confirmed their engagement on social media last week.

"I want nothing more than to spend the rest of my life loving you....YES," she wrote in the caption. ?????????

"Thank you, everyone, for celebrating this journey with us. We are praying love over everyone from here."

While Jeannie says she has met her "equal" in the 42-year-old rap mogul, Jeezy's friends say he is having second thoughts. He was reportedly "annoyed" that he is playing second fiddle to Jeannie.

Jeezy, real name Jay Wayne Jenkins, is not pleased that his friends believe Jeannie is using him for a come up.

Jeezy's fans wonder when did Jeannie Mai become a bigger star than their rap idol?

The couple made their relationship Instagram Official in September, after dating just a few months.

There are rumors that Jeannie is pregnant with Jeezy's 2nd child (he also has a grown son). But the pregnancy rumors are unconfirmed.

Rapper Jeezy and "The Real" co-host Jeannie Mai got engaged on March 27 - less than a year after they began dating.

The couple made their relationship Instagram Official in September, after dating just a few months.

While Jeannie says she has met her "equal" in the 42-year-old rap mogul, Jeezy's friends say he is having second thoughts.

Jeezy, real name Jay Wayne Jenkins, is said to be "annoyed" that Jeannie's name always comes before his in news articles.

While urban blogs showed Jeezy some respect, mainstream news outlets gave Jeannie the shine -- which doesn't sit well with the "Thug Motivation" rapper.

Sources say Jeezy is not pleased that his friends believe Jeannie is using him for a come up.

PEOPLE magazine broke the engagement news on Monday, April 6, with the headline: "Jeannie Mai and Jeezy Are Engaged! Inside Their 'Quarantine Date Night' Proposal."

Entertainment Tonight's headline reads: "Jeannie Mai and Jeezy Are Engaged."

E! News also gave Jeannie top billing: "Jeannie Mai & Jeezy Are Engaged!"

London's Daily Mail also lead off with Jeannie in its headline: "'YES': The Real's Jeannie Mai confirms engagement to Jeezy after rapper pops the question during 'quarantine date night."

Jeezy's fans wonder when did Jeannie Mai become a bigger star than their rap idol?

Macho men like Jeezy are used to being the king of his castle and wearing the pants in the relationship. They don't do well in relationships where the woman has more power and fame.

Sources say Jeannie, 41, began dating Jeezy because a Black man will always be viewed as her lesser in society.

Jeezy was previously engaged to an African businesswoman (pictured). He claimed her infant daughter as his own.

Relax ladies. Jeannie Mai's rep denies reports that she is pregnant with boyfriend Jeezy's baby. According to Jeannie’s rep her uterus is currently unoccupied.

Rumors spread this week that the 40-year-old daytime talk show host was pregnant with rapper Jeezy's baby. If true, the child would have been Jeannie's first and Jeezy's 2nd or 3rd.

According to MTOnews.com, a source claimed Jeannie is "eating for two" and that camera crews were under strict orders to shoot her from an angle to hide her growing baby bump.

"We've been told to shoot Jeannie from the side to make her look slimmer," the source tells MTO News. "Jeannie is already a tiny girl, so there's really no need to make her slimmer."

But Jeannie's rep tells Lovebscott.com exclusively that the divorced TV personality is not pregnant.

According to Scott, Jeannie's rep "flat out denies the report."

Only time will tell if Jeannie or Jeezy will be changing diapers this summer.

Atlanta power couple Jeezy and Jeannie Mai are expecting their first child in 2020, according to sources close to the couple.

A source on daytime talk show The Real claims Jeannie is pregnant with rapper Jeezy's baby.

The source claims Jeannie is "eating for two" and that camera crews are under strict orders to shoot her from an angle to hide her growing baby bump.

"We've been told to shoot Jeannie from the side to make her look slimmer," the source tells MTO News. "Jeannie is already a tiny girl, so there's really no need to make her slimmer."

The source added: "Then we were told that they expect her to gain weight, and they wanted to try and hide it from the cameras.

The 40-year-old television personality is desperate for a baby of her own now that she's approaching middle age.

Her unwillingness to have children led to the collapse of her 10-year marriage to Freddy Harteis.

"My own standards were low," she told co-hosts Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon Houghton and Tamera Mowry about her failed marriage.

"We can go into a whole counseling session on why I only gave myself the bare minimum."

But Jeannie is not putting all the blame on Freddy. "I am not blaming my ex for the things that he barely came through to do," she said. "When [Freddy] said things like 'good for you' or 'that's cool,' I'm like, 'That's great, he supports me!' That to me is my standard of support."

She broke down in tears as she recalled realizing she deserved more when she started dating Jeezy, and he was so attentive to her.

"I didn't even know until my new relationship that something as basic... I'm not crying to feel bad. It was just so touchy. But even something as basic as like at his birthday party, he left his own birthday to drive me to the airport. He was like, 'are you kidding? I want to see you off,'" she said.

Jeannie Mai believes she has found the love of her life in Atlanta rapper Jeezy, real name Jay Wayne Jenkins, 42.

The Real co-host gushed about Jeezy in Wednesday's episode.

"I am not blaming my ex for the things that he barely came through to do," Mai, 40, told her co-hosts, Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon Houghton and Tamera Mowry as well as guest-host Tisha Campbell.

Mai, who broke into tears, said her standards were low for her marriage to Freddy Harteis, 42.

"We can go into a whole counseling session on why I only gave myself the bare minimum," she said before adding she doesn't place all of the blame on her ex.

She suggested that there was an element of jealousy in their marriage and that her TV success may have made Harteis feel inadequate.

"When [Harteis] said things like 'good for you' or 'that's cool,' I'm like, that's great, he supports me! That to me is my standard of support."

She said it wasn't until she met Jeezy that she realized she deserved more.

"I didn't even know until my new relationship that something as basic..." Mai said as she broke down crying.

"I'm not crying to feel bad. It was just so touchy. But even something as basic as like at his birthday party, he left his own birthday to drive me to the airport," Mai said of the "Put On" rapper. "He was like 'are you kidding?' I want to see you off.'"

"You can blame [your exes] but just be mindful of your standards," Mai cautioned the audience.

Mai said she upgraded herself when she met Jeezy, a Libra who has a history of failed relationships with women.
