THE REAL co-host and Dancing with the Stars contestant Jeannie Mai has not married her rapper fiancé Jeezy.
She recently revealed on The Real that when the pair do get married, she will become "submissive" to him.
Did Jeannie Mai get married to Jeezy?
Jeannie Mai and Jeezy are engaged, but have not yet wed.
Jay Wayne Jenkins, known as Jeezy, is a rapper from Atlanta, Georgia.
He has released nine studio albums and has won awards for hits like I'm So Hood, Love in this Club and Hard with Rihanna.
He was previously married to Mahlet “Mahi” Gebremedhin, whom he shares daughter Amra with.
The two were once embroiled in a nasty custody battle over the child. In April, Mahlet claimed Jeezy failed to pay their court-agreed $7,500 a month in child support, according to court reports obtained by Bossip.
Jeezy claimed Mahlet was "jealous" of his relationship with Jeannie.
How long have they been dating?
Jeannie and 43-year-old Jeezy began dating last September.
They announced their engagement in April.
Jeannie, who is currently competing on this season of Dancing With the Stars, has gushed over her husband-to-be and his thoughtful gestures in the media.
Most recently, Jeezy rented a sky-high billboard in Los Angeles to encourage people to vote for her and her pro partner Brandon Armstrong on the show.
"Who does that? Who gets their fiancée a billboard just to encourage people to vote for Dancing With the Stars on their birthday?" she said.
"It's his birthday right now, and he is busy getting me a billboard to help me garner votes. I don't even know what the price tag is on that, but beyond that, just the gesture, to believe in us."
"That is the type of man he is, and I hope everyone seeing that now can understand why the mere gesture of dedicating a dance to him is the least I can do," she added. "Because he truly is the love of my life."
Who was Jeannie married to before?
Jeannie was previously married to Freddie Harteis.
Jeannie and Freddie, a self confessed "passionate outdoorsman" and hunter, married in 2007 and were wed for ten years before their divorce finalized in 2018.
She explained how their marriage deteriorated over her lack of desire to have children.
“Before we got married, I was very clear about the fact that I probably would not have kids, just because I’ve never felt that,” the host told PEOPLE.
“And now, getting older, he definitely seems like he wants kids, and he actually came out and said that he wants children.”
“When you physically see how a man is with a child, and if the man really desires to be a father, and you know that you are that block between that happening, you just don’t feel right about yourself every single day,” she revealed.

Although the two are now separated and have both moved on, she said that she wishes him "happiness every single day."
What did she say about being submissive?
Jeannie delved into how she will be submissive in her marriage to Jeezy.
"So, I'm gonna say right here, that I, Jeannie Mai, going in to my marriage — I want to submit to my man. Let me explain," she said.
"When I hear this definition … submitting has a negative connotation. It means that you are less important, you are lower than that person that you're submitting to. It usually can be like, you know, referenced as somebody who works lower than you and that's not what I'm referring to here."
She went on to explain that because she's constantlymakes decisions in her career, she prefers her partner to take the lead and make decisions in their home life.
"I'm a very dominant woman. I own my business, I lead my teams, I played my own manager, my own publicist, my own lawyer when I didn't have money to have those people," she explained. "So, I make the decisions in my life. When I come home, I like the idea that my man leads us."
"That doesn't mean that when he says, 'How are we spending our money?' or 'Where are we moving?' that I just say, 'Yes sir,' or 'Yes, your honor.' Like, it’s not that. It’s a, 'You know what? I think that we would do best here, I want to do this,' and he takes the decision, he formulates it with our overall vision, and he leads us and I like to submit to that."
