Jay had filed for divorce from his now actress ex-wife on 19 July 2016, where he claimed that Nikki was suffering through a severe drug problem and also sought the full custody of his son. Although, he called off the case after six days of filing the divorce mentioning that the pair was still in love.
However, as Nikki didn't address her issues with drugs, the 47-year-old comedian filed the divorce for the second time on 13 December 2016. Although, he initially registered for the joint custody of his son; he changed his demands and asked for sole custody on 10 March 2017 claiming Nikki struggled with drug addiction and severe mental condition.
A report published by the PEOPLE had pointed out Jay's allegations stating,
"Based upon the increasing hostility in our home, Nikki’s ongoing refusal to attend her mental health issues … her abuse of drugs, and her failure to respect boundaries, I had no choice but to obtain alternate housing for me and our son."
Jay even mentioned that Nikki had suicidal tendencies and threatened to take her life at least two times. While Jay affirmed that he was still in love with his child's mother, he could not let his son be raised in a toxic environment.
