Did Rapper Gucci Mane file for divorce after finding out his wife slept with his rival Young Jeezy a decade ago? No, that's not true: the story was put out almost a month ago by a site that regularily puts out false news (including death hoaxes) about celebrities to attract clicks and then hides behind a satire disclaimer at the bottom of the page that you can clearly read if you have a big magnifying glass.

The an article published by LFR Solutions on September 28, 2019 only went viral late in October 2019. It was titled "Gucci Mane Files For Divorce After Finding Out Wife Keyshia Ka'Oir Smashed Jeezy a Decade Ago!" (archived here) and it opened:

According to sources close to Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka'Oir, the two are preparing to split just weeks before their third year anniversary. It was confirmed that Gucci Mane filed for divorce after he found out that his wife had a prior intimate relationship with his arch nemesis and rival, Young Jeezy a decade prior to their marriage. Young Jeezy and Gucci Mane have had one of the longest, highly publicized feuds in the rap industry after a a series of disputes beginning with the song "So Icy" the two collaborated for and ending with a close associate of Young Jeezy being murdered by Gucci Mane during a robbery gone wrong, in which he was later acquitted for. While the beef has been going on since 2005, in 2008, Young Jeezy and Keyshia Ka'oir dated briefly, before Ka'oir ever met Gucci Mane.

The site LFR Solutions comes with a disclaimer at the bottom of every page that reads:

The stories posted on lfrsolutions.com are for entertainment purposes only. The stories may mimic articles found in the headlines, but rest assured they are purely satirical.

However that disclaimer is between four and five pixels tall so it is hardly legible on most screens. To us that indicates deception is going on so in accordance with our Satire Policy we rate this story "False".

Neither Gucci Mane (real name Radric Delantic Davis) nor Young Jeezy (or just Jeezy these days, real name Jay Wayne Jenkins) have made any comment about the supposed divorce on social media. In fact, just three days ago Mane and his wife posted pictures to Instagram celebrating their second wedding anniversary:
