Ja Rule’s Wife, Aisha: ‘My family is far from broke’

This is a heartwarming story about a rapper that you don’t often see in the media.

Last week, Hip Hop star Ja Rule, 35, turned himself in to New York authorities to begin serving a 2-year prison sentence for a conviction on weapons possession charges.

The Queens MC was arrested in 2007 during a traffic stop after police searched his vehicle and found a loaded weapon. Ja Rule, whose real name is Jeffrey Atkins, was on probation at the time.

But here’s where the story gets good: according to gossip blog TMZ, Ja Rule’s family will not go hungry while he’s on lockdown.

TMZ spoke to Ja’s long suffering wife, Aisha, who stood by her man as he turned himself in last week. Aisha is a ride-or-die chick whose love has never wavered despite all the rumors about him chasing tail.

Aisha disputed the latest rumors that her husband was going off to prison while leaving his family destitute.

Aisha tells TMZ, “He did leave us well off. All of the rumors about Ja being broke are far from true.”

Aisha adds, “Ja made sure… that me and my kids wouldn’t need anything as far as income goes. He planned well before he went in.

“We won’t be bad… even for a little bit — that was Ja’s first priority as a man who makes sure family comes first.”

The “Pain Is Love” rapper and his high school sweetheart have a daughter, Brittany, and two sons, Jeffrey, Jr. and Jordan.

    I hope this is true because he knew years in advance that he would go to prison….He could not have been that naive to think he wouldn’t! BUT even though I don’t condone going to prison, I will :applause: him if he planned wisely for his family before going in. If you can’t be there in the physical, at least make sure you’re there financially.

    Yes despite the fact that he probably nfected you with all manner of STDs from his ho-ing around, at least he is still a provider!!! Because if he was broke, we all know she wouldn’t have been that ride or die chick…

    i cant really agree with the whole “if he was broke logic” cuz i went to school with her and her sister and she was that ride or die since he was just a scrawny neighborhood fool. they’ve been together since jr high. she just really loves him so she puts up with that b.s.

    This is a far cry form the other 13:59 -14:59 wives, baby mamas, cousins, hyoe men, massage palor workers such as:

    1. Lil Bossie baby (mama(s) who is still on the lamb (run, not the meat)

    2. DMX, I don’t know her name only that she is hard on the eyes and is a cross between Kim Waynans and David Allen Greir

    3. Rocko, I am sure he is having trouble supporting his non-Monica Related children since she is no longer his meal ticket.

    4. Lil Scrappy babyma (Scrap Metal) as Diamond is no longer floating checks

    Good Morning! :hi:

    I can definitely say that her story has never changed. She’s been ride or die through it all for Ja. Kudos to him :applause:
    for being a man about the whole thing, because at the end of the day that’s all he has out here is her and his fam while he’s behind that wall.

    I don’t think it is anyone’s business. Why she would have to make a statement on her finances while he is away is crazy. While he is gone..handle your business..when he returns…keep doing the same. Folks put too much of their business out there!!!!

    Dear Aisha:

    You do know…that you could always go back to school and get a j-o-b. I know you probably have never worked; but his time away is time that you could be using to grow yourself and your OWN money making potential boo-boo.

    And getting a job will also help yall in the future…cause we all know his next album is going quadruple plastic. Planning for yall for the next few years is one thing…that money is NOT gonna last forever.

    Please don’t be mad at me.

    Carrington says:

    That’s good! At least he had sense enough to take care of his family. Not to mention he actually stayed with the chick who stuck by him when he didn’t have $hit instead of doing like most of these brothers who have a ride or die chick when he’s broke, and then the minute he gets put on, he trades her a$$ in for a some model-type (usually not black) who wouldn’t have $HIT to do with him if he WASN’T put on.

    She’s a regular sister and I think that’s what I like most about their relationship. Just like Denzel and Bernie Mack – they may have strayed, but they stuck with the black women who stuck by them.

    Ashanti is NOT broke, she, Amiere, & Ciara are currently on the Woolworth/ KMart tour… I just heard that one song she had?? on the radio… either that or my cat was crapping in the liter box…. Nevertheless I still say EVE is the smartest rapper ever.. her flame went out like a pilot light and she didn’t hang on to coat tails like we’ve NEVER heard her repping DMX like Lil Kim still jocking Biggie or Ashanti still talking bout Murder Inc. I mean EVE jumped white faster than Lamar Odor.

    SN: I still watch that tape she made w/ that power tool..
