Donell Jones Decided To Quit Drinking For His Wife & Kids?
"I had a lot of things going on in my life and I just wanted to change. I had just gotten married I had my wife and a new son," reveals Donell Jones, while talking about how he quit his drinking and smoking habits for his family.
Family Is Everything
Jones came back into the industry after an eight-year-long hiatus with his new album named 100% free.
During the album's promotions, Donell Jones sat down with BET and discussed all about his new comeback while touching on the struggles in his personal life.
Sharing more on why he decided to change, he said,
I just wanted to spend some time with him and watch him grow and I needed to change my life. I have five daughters and here's my last. This is my son. I just wanted to be a better person for him.
Indeed, for a father to be a role model for their children is the most important thing, and while raising six children together, surely, the 48-year-old has left a significant impact on their lives.
Jones shares his happy life with his wife, Jasmine, with whom he has a son named Noah and a daughter. All of his daughters are from his past relationship.
Jasmine and Jones celebrated their seven years together. In an Instagram post dedicated to his wedding anniversary, the "Where I Wanna Be" singer revealed that the couple has been together for 17 years and married for 7.
"I am so thankful that the creator lead me to my twin flame. You mean the world to me and our love has grown far beyond the meaning of the word. I love, respect and honor you."
