Jeannie Mai Says She'll 'Submit' to Fiance Jeezy When They Get Married

Jeannie Mai is opening up about her relationship with Jeezy.

During the Wednesday (October 7) episode of her show The Real, the 41-year-old talk show host said she plans on being submissive in her marriage.

“I want to submit to my man. When I hear this definition…submitting has a negative connotation,” Jeannie explained. “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.”

“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,” Jeannie continued. “So, I make the decisions in my life…When I come home, I like the idea that my man leads us.”

Jeannie went on to explain that this doesn’t mean she’ll have to ask the 43-year-old rapper for permission, but rather she wants him to take the lead.

“That doesn’t mean that in this case Jay makes all the decisions for 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.’ It’s not that,” Jeannie said. “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.”

Jeannie went on, “I don’t want to lead in our household and in our marriage. I want him to lead, and I have all the essence of what I bring as a wife to make that decision, but I love that my husband will be the man that leads.”

Jeannie said she came to this realization because “it’s tiring being the boss of me,” adding, “It’s tiring leading all the time in my life.”

Jeezy proposed to Jeannie in April
