How Jelly Roll Met His Wife

Previously, Jelly Roll opened up about how he met his wife. He told Taste of Country he likes to tell a fictionalized version of how they met.

“I was working at a plus-size male strip club, it was called Chip & Whales,” Jelly Roll said. “And what happens is, women come in and the deal is we start naked and as we get tipped, we clothe. Thousand dollars a sock, you know what I’m saying?”

In actuality, Jelly Roll and Bunnie Xo met after he performed a show at the Las Vegas Country Saloon. “We hit it off,” he said. “She said she fell in love with the saddest eyes in the room.”

One thing he loves is when fans mistake the dynamic in their relationship. It’s something that the singer finds funny.

“I get tickled pink,” he said. “I love it when they call her a gold digger, that’s my favorite thing. She hates it. It infuriates her, it just flames her up.”

“But it just tickles me pink because when I met her, I was homeless living out of a ’96 conversion van. If anyone was digging for gold, it was I, Popeye. I was the one that was over here searching. I was couch surfing and made it to the bedroom,” he said. “She’s helped me raise my daughter. We’ve had custody of her the last nine years. It just takes a real selfless person to help raise a child they didn’t birth,” he says, gushing.
