Jimmie Allen wrote a public apology to his estranged wife and the couple’s children amid accusations of abuse and an ongoing divorce. Allen posted his statement to his wife, Alexis Gale, and his family on Instagram on Thursday afternoon (May 18).

“I want to publicly apologize to my wife Alexis for humiliating her with my affair. I’m embarrassed that my choices have brought shame on her. That’s something that she did not deserve at all,” Allen began his statement. “I also want to apologize to my children for being a poor example of a man and a father. I’m working on becoming a better person that my kids can be proud of. My goal is to be better than the generation before me.

“This business takes so much from you,” he continued. “It’s full of temptations that can cripple you and ruin everything you’ve built. I’m ashamed that I wasn’t strong enough to withstand them. I will no longer be a victim of my weaknesses. 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’s statement comes as the country artist’s former manager, identified as Jane Doe, accused him of assault and sexual abuse. Allen has maintained his innocence and said the relationship was consensual. His statement also comes as he and Gale are in the midst of a split. They announced last month that they decided to separate after nearly two years of marriage, as they were welcoming another child. Gale revealed on Instagram on Mother’s Day on Sunday (May 14) that she’s pregnant with another boy.

Allen and Gale are parents to daughters Naomi Bettie, born in March 2020, and Zara James, born in October 2021. Allen is also father to son Aadyn, 8, from a previous relationship.
