Jeannie Mai’s fiancé, Jeezy, is giving an update on the Daytime television host’s health after she underwent surgery for epiglottitis, a life-threatening inflammatory illness.
The rapper joined Mai’s co-hosts on Thursday’s episode of “The Real” where he admitted that it’s been difficult to get Mai to slow down — even in recovery, but, “she’s doing well.”
“I thank y’all for y’all prayers and y’all support,” Jeezy said. “She’s doing well; she’s eating everything in the house. But she’s definitely doing well.”
The Atlanta MC also explained that an abscess blocking her airway is what led to her emergency hospitalization and forced her to drop out of “Dancing with the Stars.”
“She began to get sick. She had some problems with her throat and we took her to the doctor and they gave her a shot of steroids and everything was good,” Jeezy shared. “It happened again, and I just started to notice she was having problems breathing. She woke up one morning and got up before me and I got up and went behind her, and I saw her, and she couldn’t breathe. I grabbed her immediately, took her to the emergency room … they found something, but they didn’t know.”
So we actually went to another doctor … The doctor immediately looked at her and told her, ‘You’re done with “Dancing with the Stars”; you’re done. This is life-threatening and if you don’t get it fixed right now, you could possibly lose your life.’”
Mai, 41, addressed the illness herself via a taped video from her hospital room that was aired after her diagnosis.
“I’m absolutely devastated that my journey on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ has to end this way,” she said. “I found out that I have a throat abscess, where my tonsils and my throat had gotten so infected that it started permeating to the rest of the areas behind my neck and behind my ears, that I had to get emergency surgery which is why I’m here now.”
