Jeannie Mai's fiance Jeezy accused of DMing ex-girlfriend, but this is not the first time he got into trouble
The rapper has been in hot water in the past too, especially with grave legal issues. Here's a list of the crazy things that got Jeezy bigger headlines
More than a month after 'The Real' co-host Jeannie Mai recently got engaged to rapper Young Jeezy on March 27, the rapper has allegedly slid into his ex's DMs. Of course, there is no confirmation. But social media users have accused the rapper, whose real name is Jay Wayne Jenkins, of DMing Jasmine Sanders, a model he was linked to in 2011.
How did the accusations come about? In tweets that have now been deleted, Sanders seems to throw shade at an ex for DMing her. “If we ‘talked’ and you have ‘moved on’ … MOVE ON… stop checking on me. Cuz I’m just sitting here laughing. You gone regret hitting me up, Trust. It’s quarantine- I got time to hit you with the facts. Like- ‘how’s your girlfriend? does your fiance know you sliding in dms- CHILL’ You got the Wrong one," read the intense tweets. Her venting session didn't end there because after she deleted those tweets, she took to her Instagram and captioned a picture of herself, "I check all my DMs and yes I deleted yours.”
The internet then took it upon itself to run through the model's dating history and while some said she could be talking about anyone, some dialed it down to one suspect. Bossip also agreed with some of the crowd! Sanders has dated Terrence J, Nick Cannon and Kelly Oubre Jr in the past, but amongst her exes, Jeezy is the only one engaged.
However, Sanders made things clear with a tweet, saying, "Jeezy and I never dated. He did not slide in my DMs. Stop reaching. You have the wrong guy. #StayHome." The internet was not having it though, as fans took to the comment section to share pictures of Sanders and Jeezy, to which Sanders remained mum on.
While the internet might have taken Jeezy for a ride on speculations that could hurt his engagement, the rapper has been in hot water in the past too, especially with grave legal issues. Here's a list of the crazy things that got Jeezy bigger headlines:
Implicated over cocaine ring link
In 2008, even though the rapper was not charged, he was implicated in a cocaine-trafficking case where prosecution witness Ralph "Ralphie" Simms told the court that the rapper nicknamed 'Snowman' had received kilos of cocaine from the Black Mafia Family who happens to be a gang accused of moving millions of dollars worth of the drug across the US. Justice Department spokesman Patrick Crosby had said, "Not in the 22 years I have covered court cases as a reporter, nor in all my time with the Justice Department. A defendant or witness can trot out any name they want. It happens all the time."
Arrested for battery
In 2014, the rapper was arrested in Atlanta on battery charges along with charges of false imprisonment and making "terrorist" threats to his son, reported TMZ who had obtained court documents. It was based on an incident that had taken place in September 2012 where a fight between Jeezy and his son led to the rapper throwing his son against a glass door besides punching, pummeling and choking him. Jeezy's son claimed his father had said, "I will put a bullet in your head right now," adding, "If I could get away with it, I would kill you." The rapper turned himself in after a grand jury had issued a warrant for each of the charges. He was released on a bond of $45,000.
Arrested for cursing at officers
Within weeks after his previous arrest, Young Jeezy was arrested again and charged with obstruction for allegedly cursing at officers and refusing to provide his name. Police arrived at a townhouse in Alpharetta, Georgia, after a security alarm went off. Police saw Jeezy walking out the back of the townhouse and the rapper allegedly said it was his girlfriend's home. However, Jenkins refused to show his identification or give his name and instead cursed at officers, who then arrested him.
Cleared off gun charges due to lack of evidence
In 2014, the Orange County District Attorney and judge had dismissed the felony weapons charges on the rapper, as TMZ reported that there was "a clear lack of evidence." The charges had surfaced with Jeezy was arrested on his tour bus along with five other people in August before a concert in the County. An AK-47 and a Glock were found on the bus and all six of them were charged with a "felony possession of an illegal weapon."
While TMZ claimed that the charges weren't solid from the start due to various reasons, all six of them were held on a $1 million bail while the offense would have called for a $20,000 bail. Turns out that the guns that were seized by the cops were purchased completely legally. "I pray this had nothing to do with race but it definitely had nothing to do with evidence. I knew that the allegations and charges were based on zero facts. I'm relieved that the truth has prevailed," said the rapper.
