Who is Derrick Jaxn? The influencer’s relationship was called into question over the past week, and now he’s admitted to cheating.
Earlier in March, Candice De Medeiros alleged to blogger Tasha K that she had an affair with Derrick Jaxn. Claiming that she was under the impression he had separated, she detailed her trips to his home and a weekend getaway to Miami together in June last year.
Now, Derrick Jaxn has admitted to the affair in an Instagram video uploaded on March 22nd. Sitting with his wife Da’Nai, he said: “Derrick Jaxn was involved with other women outside the marriage. I’m talking about as serious as sex to sexual flirtation and meeting up and that kind of thing.”
After he confirms that he is not the victim in the situation, and that his wife didn’t push him to cheat, she added her thoughts. Da’Naia explains that she originally left him when she found out, but returned once she noticed a “shift” in his behaviour.

31-year-old Derrick Jaxn made a platform for himself as a relationship guidance advisor, promoting healthy relationships online. On Instagram, he has over one million followers, while his YouTube channel has 750,000.
His YouTube sees him address common problems in modern relationships, ranging from heartbreak to narcissism to cheating.
While Derrick also released books on similar matters including Don’t Forget Your Crown, and ironically, A Cheating Man’s Heart.
His previous apology video
Prior to his Instagram upload with his wife, Derrick Jaxn released a very different video on the situation, which has now been deleted. Instead, he previously claimed to have been separated from his wife while the relations occurred.
In the almost-30-minute-long video, he claimed he split from his wife in February 2020, meaning they were separated for the duration: “June, we talking about my birthday. She basically lets me know there’s no plan for her to be around on my birthday, OK. Now I’m in screw-it mode, F-it mode. I’m hitting up old chicks. I really don’t care at this point. I don’t’ care about my reputation. I don’t care about the business. I don’t care about any of that.”
He later explained that he eventually blocked Candice, which she also spoke about, in an effort to get his life back on track.
