Relationship coach Derrick Jaxn has announced his divorce from his wife, Da’Naia Jackson, after being spotted with a mystery woman in Miami.
Jaxn shared the news via a lengthy Instagram post on Dec. 10. The post included a Black and white photo of him all smiles while holding Jackson.
“Earlier this year, after much prayer, counseling, and deep consideration, we decided to go our separate ways and filed for divorce,” he shared.

The relationship coach continued, saying it “was one of the hardest decisions” of his life.
“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. 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.”
The news arrived shortly after gossip vlogger, Tasha K, shared a photo of him with a mystery woman in Miami during Art Basel Week.
“#UpDated PSA: Let’s congratulate the new couple [church emoji]. The new Miss Jaxn, Zhana Impress @offical_pinkylove has already been exposed on # UnWineWithTashaK’s YouTube. Check out the video, link in bio [sunglasses and wine emojis],” she wrote. However, Jaxn didn’t confirm if the unidentified woman was his official new beau.
The 33-year-old and Jackson had reportedly been married for four years before their divorce. In 2021, the couple were caught in the middle of a scandal involving Jaxn’s alleged mistress, Candice De Medeiros. Medeiros claimed she slept with him on several occasions and had been inside the home he shared with his loving wife and children.
Jackson had reportedly addressed the scandal, saying she forgave her now-former man but admitted that she left him when she discovered the mistress.
“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,” Jaxn said in his latest post.
