Relationship guru Derrick Jaxn has announced that he’s divorcing his wife.

Jaxn has been married to Da’Naia Jackson for four years, and the couple were prominent social influencers and many envied their seemingly perfect relationship until it recently came crashing down.

In a lengthy post on Instagram, Jaxn addressed the split alongside a black and white photo of him carrying his now ex-wife with smiles on both their faces.

“Over the past several months, my family and I have gone through many changes. 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,” the emotional post begins.

The decision comes after Jaxn admitted to cheating on his wife over a year ago in a confessional video posted to YouTube.

Jaxn then continues, explaining how tough the decision to split was for him and his family.

“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.”

He ended the post by remarking on the journey of love he’s shared with Jackson.

“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,” he concluded.

According to Bossip, the divorce announcement comes immediately after Tasha K posted a photo of Jaxn in Miami at Art Basel week with a mystery woman.
