Ja Rule Shares Why He’s A Magnet For Thirsty Women And How His Wife Copes
Ja Rule’s name has been at the center of numerous sex scandals. Industry rumors have also implied that the I’m In Love With a Church Girl actor has been consistently unfaithful to his wife of twelve years, Aisha Atkins. Though Ja has never officially confirmed or denied his infidelity, he has confessed to being a bad husband at times.
“I wasn’t ready to be the man she was wanting me to be at that moment. I was being very selfish […] I can’t say that I was 100% bad to my wife. I wasn’t there for a lot of things that I should’ve been there for. I wasn’t in her corner for a lot of the things that I should’ve been. So yeah, that was terrible. The rumors and things like that, terrible. As far as being a good man and a good father, that I was. I was there being that person as much as I could be. I wasn’t a great husband,” Ja confessed during an interview last month.
Fortunately, his wife refused to give up on their marriage. Ja tells HipHollywood that these days, he and Aisha are doing much better.
“Me and my wife … she’s sitting right here, she’s a strong black woman,” he revealed.
Although they seem to be at a good place right now, the New York rapper says that ever so often, drama still seems to surface.
“I think we as a married couple go through what any other married couple goes through, it’s just magnified that much more because everything I do is in the media or inspired by it.”
Having been tied to the likes of women such as Karrine “Superhead” Steffans–who told the world of their alleged affair in her New York Times Bestseller, Confessions of a Video Vixen–Ja insists that he’s a target for this type of woman.
“I’m a target for fallacious women that want to not see me and my wife happy. So they’ll make up stories and do whatever they have to do to sell books, or be on TV shows … They’ll take a small situation and make it something that’s so much bigger than what it is,” he explained.
“It could be a simple picture and they blow that up into we are sleeping together. I think a lot of stuff gets blown out of proportion and me and my wife, we deal with it accordingly.”
Despite the constant controversy, he boasts that he and his wife share a bond that can’t be broken by such things.
“She knows me, she knows my heart, she knows I love her. We go through things like any other married couple but I think at the end of the day, our love and our bond is stronger than any rumors of infidelity.”
