The couple that has been the subject of hundreds of internet jokes and Halloween costumes has decided to end their relationship. Derrick Jaxn, who calls himself a “self-certified relationship guru,” has reportedly asked his wife Da’Nai Jackson for a divorce.
Da’Nai Jackson recently cursed people who said bad things about their marriage. Soon before the news came out, Jaxn was seen partying in Miami with a woman no one knew.
Bossip says that after Tasha K posted a video of the new couple, Jaxn felt he had to tell the truth about his relationship status on social media.
“Over the past several months, my family and I have gone through many changes,” Jaxn opens. “Some of you have speculated while others of you have reached out to offer support as we privately established this new normal for ourselves and our beautiful children.”
“Earlier this year after much prayer, counseling and deep consideration, we decided to go our separate ways and filed for divorce. Making the decision to file was one of the hardest decisions of my life, but I’ve found peace knowing that our mission of raising healthy children, starting with healthy and whole parents is still being accomplished.”
“From falling in love as just teenagers to becoming spouses and now co-parents, I’m grateful for the years we’ve spent together and wouldn’t trade them for anything. I was blessed to have such an amazing person in my life and will forever be thankful for all she’s meant to our family.”
Even though these words about his ex-partner seem nice, many people are wondering if Da’Nai knew about the breakup at all. Last month, Jackson posted a video to Instagram telling people not to get involved in her marriage.
“May your husbands and wives become widows. Let your children become fatherless. Let your seeds become vagabonds on the earth,” she spewed. “Let the words of your mouth and the words of your hands be returned back to you. Let it go down your throat and choke you slowly until your days become few on the earth.” She continued, “The word of God says touch, not my anointed, and do my profits no harm. You’ve been warned.”
Last year, the couple caused a stir on the internet when Jaxn was caught cheating. Jaxn is an advocate for healthy relationships and has written several books on the subject. Later, he said that he had cheated on his wife several times.
Da’Nai forgave him each time, and the two then posted a video together to show that they were committed to getting through it together. Still, Jaxn was seen as the bad guy in the story, and Da’Nai, who wore a bonnet in the video and later called it her “helmet of salvation,” became the face of “I’m going to stick with him.”
It’s not clear what the next steps will be for the couple or what co-parenting plans will be made for the sake of the kids, but I can say that I’m glad Jaxn and his manipulative ways are no longer tying up sis… Follow us only on Lee Daily for more news like this.
