Jimmie Allen says he’s sorry to estranged wife Alexis for ‘humiliating her’ with his infidelities’ … as he’s sued over alleged sexual abuse
Jimmie Allen has issued an apology to his estranged wife Alexis for ‘humiliating her’ with his infidelities, on the heels of a lawsuit being filed against him alleging assault and sexual abuse.
The country music singer, 37, took to social media on Thursday with a detailed apology, after he was named in an April 28 lawsuit filed by a woman who once worked for him as his manager.
‘I want to publicly apologize to my wife Alexis for humiliating her with my affair,’ the Milton, Delaware native said of his estranged spouse, 27, who filed for divorce from him last month, and is expecting their third child.
The Grammy-nominated artist continued: ‘I’m embarrassed that my choices have brought shame on her. That’s something that she did not deserve at all.’
The Best Shot artist and his estranged spouse are parents to daughters Naomi Bettie, three, and Zara James, one.

In his apology, Allen referenced his kids, saying that he was disappointed with himself for his conduct.
‘I also want to apologize to my children for being a poor example of a man and a father,’ he said, adding that he was ‘working on becoming a better person that my kids can be proud of.’
Allen said that his ‘goal is to be better than the generation before’ and that the entertainment industry ‘takes so much from you.’
Allen added, ‘It’s full of temptations that can cripple you and ruin everything you’ve built.’
The musical artist said that he was ‘ashamed’ he ‘wasn’t strong enough to withstand’ temptation and vowed to ‘no longer be a victim of [his] weaknesses.’
Allen wrapped up in saying, ‘I challenge everyone to seek help when they need it. Do not be afraid of your weakness, surround yourself with people that WILL help you. Be Blessed.’
Allen earlier this week said on Instagram Stories, ‘This too shall pass’ and ‘We gonna be alright’ following news of the lawsuit being filed against him.
In the suit, a 25-year-old woman who once managed the artist accused him of sexual harassment and abuse, saying that executives on his management team ignored her complaints about his conduct.

Allen has denied all claims of sexual misconduct and says that the relationship he had with the woman had been consensual.
‘It is deeply troubling and hurtful that someone I counted as one of my closest friends, colleagues and confidants would make allegations that have no truth to them whatsoever,’ Allen told People in a statement.
In the statement, Allen said that he was in a consensual sexual relationship with the person suing him ‘for nearly two years,’ during which time, ‘She never once accused me of any wrongdoing, and she spoke of our relationship and friendship as being something she wanted to continue indefinitely.’
