Jimmie Allen has publicly apologized to his estranged wife, Alexis Gale, as well as his family amid sexual assault allegations against the country star.
“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,” Allen wrote in a statement posted to Instagram. “That’s something that she did not deserve at all.”
The singer also apologized to his children “for being a poor example of a man and a father.”
He added, “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. 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.”
Last month, Allen and Gale revealed that they are expecting their third baby together but also added that they are breaking up.
“After much thought and reflection in recent months, Lex & I have made the decision to separate,” the country star wrote. “Our number one priority is and always will be ensuring that our children are healthy, happy and loved, and we remain committed to co-parenting with love and respect for one another. In light of our growing family, we respectfully request privacy during this time.”
Meanwhile, an employee on his management team has filed a civil lawsuit in Tennessee federal court. The “Jane Doe” has claimed Allen “manipulated and used his power” over her job as a day-to-day manager in order to “sexually harass and abuse her.”
In a statement to Billboard, Allen admitted to a sexual relationship with his accuser but denied all allegations of assault.
