AceShowbiz - While Jelly Roll's career has been skyrocketing following his transition into country music, it may put his marriage at risk. Rumor has it has the rapper's wife is jealous of his friendship with fellow country music star Lainey Wilson.
Jelly has teamed up with Lainey for their hit "Save Me", which has earned them several nominations at music award shows. While their collaboration is good for his career, Alyssa DeFord a.k.a. Bunnie XO allegedly is mad that her husband keeps hanging around Lainey.
"Bunnie fell in love with Jelly when the guy didn't have a pot to pee in, but he's the toast of country music now right along with Lainey - and they're enjoying the ride together," a source tells the National Enquirer (via RadarOnline.com).
As to why Bunnie grew suspicious, the source says, "Jelly gushes about Lainey to Bunnie all the time, to the point where she asked if he's got a thing for her." The informant adds, "He insists they're just friends, but Bunnie is a savvy girl - she figures where there's smoke, there's fire and is desperate to save her marriage!"
Lainey herself is not off the market. She has been in a relationship with ex-NFL quarterback Devlin Hodges for over two years. However, Bunnie still "lives in fear this close kindship with her husband could lead to something more."
Jelly has reportedly been trying to ward off the suspicions of his wife by renewing their vows in Las Vegas in August. He has also found out his wife's alleged triggers, so he has "learned to kind of cool it talking about Lainey, seeing it can set Bunnie off."
Jelly previously said of his friendship with Lainey, "There's such a kinship with us."
Meanwhile, back in April, Bunnie gushed over the "Son of a Sinner" crooner following his wins at the 2023 CMT Music Awards. "You my sweet other half, are just that. A man that was told no every corner he turned only to hit 'em with that Nashville shuck & come out on top every time. I always tell you you have a horseshoe stuck up your a**, but that isn't it baby," she penned on Instagram.
She continued, "This is sheer will to spread light, to move mountains, to touch broken souls with your voice, to break generational traumas & set examples for the future. In short, you are the game changer papas. You were sent here to destroy stereotypes & blaze the trail for all the have nots."
