Things got messy in Jimmie Allen and his wife, Alexis Gale’s, marriage when they separated in April 2023 while she was pregnant with their third child. Although the estranged couple eventually reconciled, Jimmie confirmed that he had welcomed twins with another woman amid the divorce. Who is the country singer’s wife?

What Is Jimmie Allen’s Wife Alexis Gale’s Job? 

According to Alexis’ LinkedIn profile, the Delaware native works as a Nashville-based registered nurse. Her bio notes that she has plenty of medical experience under her belt, including “1,080 clinical hours completed and successful completion of the NCLEX exam,” in addition to being certified in first aid and CPR. 

Alexis previously worked as a licensed esthetician and attended the Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing,  per her profile. 

When Did Jimmie Allen and Alexis Gale Get Married? 

After a whirlwind romance, the couple announced their engagement at the Happiest Place on Earth in June 2019. 

“Does this really mean I get to grow old with you?!” Alexis captioned a sweet Instagram post at the time, featuring a photo of her stunning engagement ring. “Yesterday, I said ‘yes’ to forever. I am beyond words [and] lucky to be able to call this incredible man my fiancé.”

One year later, the two tied the knot in June 2020. 

In August 2021, Allen gushed over his then-wife during an interview with People, explaining that he wasn’t the marriage type until he met Alexis. 

“I wanted to be a dad and do music, that’s it. I never wanted to get married,” he told the outlet. “The whole husband thing was not something I ever wanted to do. But Alexis changed that. Now, I like it. It gives me some security — she can’t just be like, ‘I’m done.’ Divorce is a lot of paperwork!” 

Why Did Jimmie Allen and Alexis Gale Split? 

In April 2023, the “Down Home” artist announced that he and Alexis decided to call it quits.

“After much thought and reflection in recent months, Lex [and] I have made the decision to separate,” Allen wrote via Instagram. “As we navigate this life change, we can also share that we will be welcoming another child together later this year. Our number one priority is and always will be ensuring that our children are healthy, happy and loved, and we remain committed to coparenting with love and respect for one another. In light of our growing family, we respectfully request privacy during this time.”

Though the two didn’t elaborate on the reason behind their breakup, Alexis posted a cryptic message via her Instagram Stories just days after their joint announcement. 

“The silence is loud enough for me,” she wrote across a plain black background. 

When Did Jimmie Allen and Wife Alexis Gale Get Back Together?

According to documents obtained by People, Allen filed for divorce from Alexis on April 28, 2023, in Williamson County, Tennessee. Hours later, Alexis filed her own suit, and both parties cited “irreconcilable differences” as their reason for divorce. While the country star requested joint custody of their children, Alexis asked to be the primary residential parent. She also sought child and spousal support.

The county clerk in Williamson County, Tennessee, has not yet responded to In Touch‘s request for documents.

That being said, the pair decided to fight for their marriage after welcoming baby No. 3, son Cohen, six months later.

“They decided to work on things together and are still together,” Allen’s rep told People on October 4, 2023, adding that their separation “was never fully seen through legally.”

How Many Kids Do Alexis Gale and Jimmie Allen Have? 

In addition to baby No. 3, who was born on September 27, 2023, Alexis and Jimmie share daughters Naomi and Zara. The “Best Shot” crooner also has a son named Aadyn from a previous relationship. 

In March 2024, Jimmie also confirmed that he had welcomed twins while separated from Alexis. He shared the first photos of the babies, Aria and Amari, on his Instagram Story. They were nine months old at the time, meaning they were born in July 2023.

“I have 6 kids,” Jimmie wrote in another post. “I love each one of them. I refuse to let anyone make me feel ashamed of my children. The only opinion I care about is theirs.”

What Was Jimmie Allen Accused Of?

Just one month after announcing that he and Alexis were splitting up, Allen was accused of sexual abuse and harassment by his former day-to-day manager. According to an expository report from Variety, “Jane Doe” filed a lawsuit in a Tennessee federal court on May 11, 2023, claiming that Jimmie harassed and assaulted her over a period of 18 months.

Amid the proceedings, the woman claimed that while in Los Angeles with Allen for a taping of American Idol, she “woke up naked in her hotel room in severe pain and bleeding vaginally, having remembered nothing of what happened the night before,” according to the publication. Alleging that the country singer was next to her in bed and urged her to take Plan B, Jane Doe also claimed that she lost her virginity during the incident.

In another instance detailed by Jane Doe, Allen allegedly groped her breasts while on an airplane, in addition to “pushing his erect penis against her body in public” and “masturbating in front of her at the hotel,” she told Variety.

Allen, meanwhile, claimed the sexual relationship was consensual in a statement via his lawyer, Andrew B. Brettler, to Us Weekly.

“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. I acknowledge that we had a sexual relationship — one that lasted for nearly two years,” the country artist said. “During that 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.”

He continued: “Only after things ended between us, did she hire a lawyer to reach out and ask for money, which leads me to question her motives. The simple fact is, her accusations are not only false, but also extremely damaging. I’ve worked incredibly hard to build my career, and I intend to mount a vigorous defense to her claims and take all other legal action necessary to protect my reputation.”

Allen returned to social media on May 18, six days after the allegations against him were made, with a lengthy statement and apology directed to his estranged wife.

“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,” he wrote. “This business takes so much from you. 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.”

The country singer additionally apologized to his children for “being a poor example of a man and a father.” He did not specifically address the allegations lodged against him.

What Has Happened to Jimmie Allen Since the Lawsuit?

Due to the allegations, Allen was subsequently dropped by his record label, BBR Music Group. “In light of today’s allegations against Jimmie Allen, BBR Music Group has decided to suspend all activity with him, effective immediately,” the company said in a statement to In Touch.

Allen was also removed from the annual CMA Fest lineup in June 2023.

Allen’s estranged wife Alexis has yet to comment on the allegations made against him as of publication. However, she did share a cryptic message on Instagram just days before the news broke.
