Few pains in life are as gut-wrenching as when a spouse breaks their sacred vows of marriage. Derrick Jaxn’s wife, Da’Naia Jackson, suffered through this betrayal when her husband was outed and subsequently admitted to having an extramarital affair. Da’Naia is back with Jaxn now, and the pair are working to rebuild their broken marriage. But why did the scorned woman take back her husband? Please, keep reading below to get caught up with the story and see how Da’Naia found the strength to keep her marriage going.
Born in Yonkers, New York, on July 20, 1989, Derrick Jaxn has built himself quite the social media empire. In 2010 Jaxn started a YouTube channel where he gave out his advice on love, relationships and let women know what they should expect from their man, a real man. Appearing as a bit of a simp, Jaxn has amassed 1.3 million Instagram followers, 740 thousand YouTube subscribers, and 63 thousand Twitter followers, bringing his net worth to around $1.5 million.
Before getting married, Derrick Jaxn and Da’Naia welcomed their first daughter into the world in 2016. The pair would eventually marry in 2018 and would welcome another daughter into their family soon after. Since the beginning, Derrick Jaxn’s wife has stood by her husband and helped him grow as a YouTuber, relationship expert, author, and highly successful entrepreneur.
Thousands of people had put their trust into Jaxn, clinging to his every word, seeking his “expert” guidance to fix their relationship woes. But, much like the real world we live in, nothing online and in social media is ever fully what it seems.
For Derrick Jaxn’s wife and thousands of relationship expert fans, reality and the ugly side of human nature came to light in 2020. The first bombshell dropped was from social media influencer Candice De Medeiros. The influencer has made a name for herself online with inspiring and uplifting quotes, as well as handing out relationship advice of her own. Starting to see a pattern with all these influencers and their “advice.”
Medeiros made the affair public when she made an appearance on Tasha K’s vlog. Not kid-friendly btw. The scorned influencer, who is said to have known Jaxn for several years, claimed that Jaxn had brought her to his and his wife’s Atlanta home to spend time together. She was also able to produce receipts showing thousands of dollars that the cheating Jaxn had spent on her.
Soon after these allegations, a second woman came forward on the Tasha K vlog claiming that she met the relationship guru through Instagram. She claims the pair spent several months together before Jaxn told her he had worked things out with his wife.
And yet another woman, a 33-year-old Atlanta surgeon, came forward as well, claiming to have hooked up with Jaxn. The doctor claims she was approached by Jaxn in an Atlanta mall and was under the impression Derrick Jaxn’s wife was living out of state and that the pair were separated.
Most know that Derrick Jaxn’s wife, Da’Naia, is back with her husband and claims to have forgiven him. Many may not know that she did, in fact, leave her cheating husband and filed for divorce. Da’Naia spent much of 2020 away from her husband with every intention of moving on with her life without him. A few months after filing for divorce, however, Jaxn’s wife would have a change of heart.
Da’Naia was done entirely with her cheating husband until she says she saw significant changes in his behavior and personality. Derrick Jaxn’s wife had this to say in the now-deleted YouTube video the couple released.
“I didn’t hesitate or waste time to do so. And I stayed gone, no matter how many times he came, I stayed gone and stayed firm in my decision, and I did not come back until I saw a shift and change in his mentality and how he carried himself and how he presented himself in conversations that we were able to have that we were never able to have in 12 years of knowing each other.”
“So today, where I’m at, it’s at peace and by his side, and I have no hesitation or hurt or shame about that, and it’s only because of the grace of God and the mercy of God.
“And we have already turned a new chapter in this story, and we are continuing to move forward, and we are just now sharing this with you, and I forgave him, and most importantly, God has forgiven him and the others as well.”
It Doesn’t Matter What You Think
A lot of people have lambasted Derrick Jaxn’s wife for taking the relationship “expert” back. But how many have been in her shoes, how many have suffered such devastation in their lives? Maybe you would have told the man to piss off, and well, that would have been the right decision for you. But Da’Naia is leaning on her relationship with God to fight for her family. As long as she is happy, and not naive, then staying is the right decision for her. Stop being so damn judgemental of others and live your own perfect life!
