Jay Wayne Jenkins was born on the 28th of September, 1977 in Columbia, South Carolina, United States of America. He was born in a middle class family; and was raised in Atlanta, Georgia but was raised separately by his mother, father and other family members. With so much rise and fall in his early life, he describes his childhood as “vague and empty” and that led him to do some bad things in the past. In an interview, he said that he was admitted and kept at YCA (Youth Challenge Academy) for 9 months, because he had a bad habit of using narcotics; especially cigarettes. After released from there, he was on his own and that is the way he chose to be; away from everybody. With his talent and interest in writing, he developed a skill for rapping words and soon wrote enough to release an album around early 2000. With his father and mother from Africa, he has got a mixed ethnicity although he is an American by nationality.
Talking about his personal life, his past life and childhood are not as informative as there is very few news of his family, schooling etc. Having had a rough life in youth, he chooses to not go back there even in his memory as they haunt him even after so many years. Talking about his private life, he seems to have had success in his love life despite the loveless and tragic youth. He doesn’t have a long list of girlfriends although there are many names linked to him, although it was a matter of just handshake. With the press and paparazzi always twisting up stuffs, we have been able to receive his authentic list of romantic partners.
His first official relationship was with Keyshia Cole, which lasted a couple of years from 2005 to 2007. After that, he was seen dating with Danah Lewis who was also a singer and they grew so close that there was rumor that they got married. But shockingly, they broke up in 2009 stating some irreconcilable differences that were not talked about any further. Then in 2010, he got involved with Tynesha Dykes and despite having a great time together, they couldn’t keep it alive. The couple had two children together; Jadarius and Shyheim who are both in joint custody of their parents; although the two of those weren’t actually husband and wife. With so much in his love life and affairs, some people have made themselves look foolish by claiming that Young Jeezy is sexually gay, to which he laughed a lot.
