Is there trouble in paradise for Jeezy and his fiancée Jeannie Mai? Insiders whisper that Jeezy and Jeannie are stepping back from their wedding plans.

Jeannie underwent surgery on her throat a few weeks ago, and Jeezy wasn't exactly there holding her hand every step of the way due to his busy schedule - which included a Verzuz battle with rapper Gucci Mane.

MTO News spoke with one of Jeezy's pals, who said, "Jeezy wants to hold off on marriage. They're engaged, so there's no need to rush things."

He added, "Probably [they'll get married] in 2025 or something like that."

When Jeannie was asked about the upcoming nuptials a few months ago, she sounded less than enthusiastic.

Read between the lines:

"Honestly, right now that's not at the top of our lists," she says. "We're so happy we're able to celebrate an engagement right now. I feel like we got work to do, so when it comes to our individual work and our individual projects and the messaging we want to send to people -- even the way that we use our Instagram -- it's really important right now to spread an energy of positivity and uniting one another than it is to be planning a wedding.

Relationships that fly high and then burn up upon reentry to earth are typically referred to as Dopamine relationships. Read here for more info on that.

This is the phase of Jeezy and Jeannie's relationship when that instant attraction they once felt for each other has faded.

Now they must reexamine their relationship to determine if they are equally yoked and if they have anything in common.

Question: When do you think Jeannie and Jeezy will announced their split?

Jeannie Mai pulled out of Dancing with the Stars after falling ill with epiglottitis, an infection of the throat.

The 41-year-old TV personality left the reality TV competition series after seeking medical attention for the potentially life-threatening inflammatory condition that can cause swelling and block airflow to the lungs, ABC reported on Monday.

Symptoms of epiglottitis are fever, sore throat, difficulty swallowing, or difficulty breathing.

"My doctors discovered a health concern with my throat which requires immediate attention and surgery," she said in a statement to Good Morning America.

"I am heartbroken that my DWTS journey has to end here. I have pushed myself to new limits physically and mentally, and I am so proud of how far we’ve come."

Jeannie was competing with professional dancer Brandon Armstrong on the show and, following her sudden departure, producers have opted to only eliminate one couple from the show this week.

"Jeannie has inspired us, along with millions of fans, with her energy and dedication," they added in a statement. "We wish her a full and speedy recovery. Since Jeannie had to withdraw from the competition, tonight’s show will feature the eight remaining couples and a single elimination."

Rapper Nelly, Selling Sunset's Chrishell Stause, Backstreet Boys singer AJ McLean and Disney Channel actress Skai Jackson are among those competing in the current 29th season.

Dancing with the Stars Season 29 contestant Jeannie Mai stepped out on a date with her fiancé Jeezy at Nobu in Malibu, CA. on Sunday night.

The couple complied with the local face mask ordinance as they dined at the restaurant and lounge.

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.
