Why Did Jenna Ellis and Her Ex-husband David Rives Separate? Both sides of the story should be read.


Why Did Jenna Ellis and Her Ex-husband David Rives Separate? Both sides of the story should be read.

Jenna Ellis and her ex-husband, television host and podcaster David Rives, reportedly divorced in August of this year.

In December of that year, a Twitter user shared a screenshot of Ellis’ since-deleted Facebook post, in which the lawyer indicated the reason for her divorce.

Ellis noted in the post that her ex-ignorance husbands of church authority and lack of accountability in their marriage contributed to their divorce.

“My spouse, David Rives, chose to separate in August, as you are aware. For certain extremely important matters, he resists all church authority, accountability, or biblical advice “she penned

Rives had been undergoing a “Matthew 18 process” from a Christian ministry for over five months at the time, according to Ellis.

“It is time to walk in truth openly,” the 36-year-old attorney continued, “and that the body of Christ should urge my husband toward truth and God, especially given he professes to be in ministry leadership and is abandoning his Christian duty in many areas.”

That particular phrase implied that she had issues with Rives because he was not a sincere Christian who did not carry out his religious obligations.

Surprisingly, the former deputy district attorney’s name on Facebook was still Jenna Rives, not Jenna Ellis, according to the photo.

When the same Twitter user approached Rives to clarify his side of the story, he had a different narrative to tell about his divorce.

On December 2, 2020, the TBN presenter responded to that tweet almost a year later, noting that Ellis posted the piece after the “second or third edit.” He said that his ex-wife had previously blamed her pastor for urging her to include those fabricated reasons in her original draft.

Rives went on to say that the same preacher assured him that he had never counseled Ellis to divorce him. He said, “The preacher informed me he never instructed her in that way.”

In August 2020, Rives stated in another tweet that Ellis had blocked him months before.

Rives and Ellis got engaged in April 2019 and married in June of that year.

Rives anchors TBN’s weekly TV show Creation in the Twenty-First Century and writes a weekly scientific and Bible news piece. Ellis works as an attorney and broadcasts the podcast Just The Truth in the meantime.
