Jelly Roll & Bunnie Xo’s Marriage Is Weirder Than You Realize

Jelly Roll & Bunnie Xo's Marriage Is Weirder Than You Realize

Meeting and Marriage

Jelly Roll and Bunnie Xo live a wild lifestyle filled with music, travel, and impulsive decisions. And as striking as the pair may look from the outside, the inner workings of their marriage are even more complex than you could imagine.

The story goes that Jelly Roll met his future wife in 2015 while performing in Las Vegas. Sadly, Bunnie Xo was in the midst of a volatile, abusive relationship at the time. Eventually, however, Bunnie’s then-boyfriend went to prison, and she and Jelly Roll reconnected in 2016.

From there, Jelly Roll and Bunnie Xo’s journey down the aisle was fast and furious. Although the couple had only met the previous year, they wasted no time betting on their relationship’s longevity once they got together.

Early Challenges

Unsurprisingly, the couple’s newlywed phase was not without its growing pains. While speaking on her Dumb Blonde podcast, Bunnie Xo explained that by marrying so quickly, the couple had a lot to learn about their new spouse.

As a result, settling into married life was a wild ride from the jump. In fact, it seems their first weeks as a couple were so erratic that they don’t even know the date they got married.

And while many spouses have been guilty of not remembering their wedding anniversary, Jelly Roll told The Bobby Bones Show that he and his wife probably couldn’t if they tried.

Anniversary Dilemma

The reason for this is that he asked Bunnie to marry him while on stage at a Yelawolf and Deftones concert in Las Vegas.

At the time, they both admittedly had been drinking. Even so, Bunnie said yes, and the couple immediately got off the stage and found the nearest chapel.

He elaborated that the time frame in which the wedding actually happened is not a complete mystery, and that it fell somewhere on August 30 or September 1.

The couple eventually solved their anniversary date dilemma by opting to renew their vows in Las Vegas seven years later, on September 1, 2023.

Discussing this decision with People, Jelly Roll explained, “It is officially — I think — September 1.

And September 1 felt right because we thought it was between the 30th and 31st, so I said, ‘Well, now we can just both be wrong and just set it on the first.’ Even money that way.”

Overcoming Infidelity

Sadly, it wasn’t just the newlywed phase that wreaked havoc on Jelly Roll and Bunnie Xo’s marriage.

During an appearance on The Wife of the Party podcast, Bunnie revealed that Jelly Roll had an extramarital affair for over a year, shortly after the couple got married.

According to Bunnie, she immediately packed her bags and headed back to Las Vegas once she found out.

Fortunately, the separation was short, and she and Jelly Roll were able to work past the infidelity as a couple. Curiously, Bunnie even claimed she was glad that the affair had transpired, and that their relationship was even stronger for it.

Open Marriage

While their relationship’s fairly short recovery period from Jelly Roll’s infidelity may come as a surprise, it might be less shocking when you learn that the rapper and his wife keep their marriage wide open. The pair revealed this approach to their relationship on an episode of Dumb Blonde in 2020. “We allow each other to be who we want to be. If I want to sleep with another guy, I can go sleep with another guy. Like it’s, that’s not a problem.” As for Jelly Roll, it appears he’s also A-okay with the couple’s open-door policy. In fact, he’s even said that his wife’s willingness to invite other individuals into the bedroom is one of his favorite parts about touring. He even discussed what sounds like a fairly typical experience with this arrangement while appearing on 247HH.
