Jeezy gets real with Nia Long.

In a recent interview, Jeezy opens up about his divorce from Jeannie Mai. "This has not been an easy journey. I can tell you that I'm sad. I can tell you that I'm disappointed. I can tell you that I'm uneasy," Jeezy said when Nia asked about the divorce. "But God has put me on a different path, and that path is going to entail for me to take care of myself and to love myself and to be in the best situation that I can thrive as someone who's been through all of the things that I've been through."

When asked about couples therapy, Jeezy reveals that the two have went to therapy together- it just wasn't enough to make the relationship work. "At the end of the day, I don't want my kids to just think I was a great artist. I'm a great man. I'm a great person. I'm a great father," Jeezy said. "I'm all the things, and I'm also somebody who's failed. I'm also somebody who's lost. I'm also somebody who, my life plays out in public a lot."

"People always see the bad things. I'm always somebody who wants to do the right thing and sometimes the masses don't want that," he continued. "Sometimes I've been told to keep your mouth closed and don't tell people anything. And now, just opening up and having these conversations, there's a lot of times where I'm like, 'Wow,' when you see people not getting the message right. You go, 'They just really don't understand.'"

Jeezy and Jeannie share a one-year-old daughter together.
