Many call him Big Chief but his real name is Justin Shearer. With several brilliant endeavours to his name, history would remember this Chief as one of America’s famous street racers. He is also known for being a TV personality and admired for his role in the Discovery Channel series, Street Outlaws. It was on the racing show that he gained widespread recognition for his fine racing skills. Shearer was previously married to a certain Alicia whom he met before he became famous. Their marriage lasted for 10 years before ending in 2017 after rumours began to make rounds that he was cheating on her with a fellow street racer, Jacklyn Braasch, though Chief denied the claims, he would later move on with Braasch.
Big Chief And His Ex-Wife Were Married For 10 Years
Big Chief’s personal life is something that leaves his fans perturbed each time questions are raised in that regard. Most people believe that any marriage that lasts for a decade has survived the test of time and would endure many more years. This wasn’t for Justin as his marriage to Alicia Shearer hit the rocks after 10 years.
Alicia who was born Alicia Leigh Howard on August 18, 1980, in Oklahoma is a respiratory therapist who obtained her degree at Oklahoma City Community College. She met Big Chief before he became popular; he was working at a full-service gas station then and they met when Alicia had come into the station. Chief said of the moment that it was love at first sight as he was nervous and that he knew that he would have “trouble with this girl,” which turned out to be true. They became friends and started dating after a while, fast forward to 2005, Chief popped the question to which Alicia said yes. Alicia was only 18 when they got married in a private wedding ceremony on September 29, 2006.
Celebrity lifestyle has a way of taking its toll on the private life of the people involved and that seemed to be the case between Big Chief and his ex-wife Alicia. The marriage between Chief and Alicia came to an end in 2017, after about 10 years of being together. Before their divorce was finalized, rumors began to swirl that the reason for the divorce was due to Chief’s infidelity. He was said to have been flirting with a co-star on Street Outlaws.
While the subsequent events would make this seem like the truth, Big Chief vehemently debunked the rumors and maintained that he never cheated on his wife.
While his statement may have seemed as though Chief and his wife were having no troubles at all, he would later reveal through his podcast, The Chief and Shawn Show that he and Alicia were having troubles and that they were getting a divorce. “The internet likes to say things, and they have said, obviously, the whole thing about my girlfriend: Who is the new chick, who is the new girl?,” he said on the podcast.
Since their divorce, Alicia has kept a very low profile, when rumors swirled about her husband’s infidelity, she never made any comments about it. According to AmoMama, she had stopped working professionally as a respiratory therapist in order to focus on raising her kids. The website also revealed that after the divorce, she has been living in Mustang, Oklahoma.
Who Is Big Chief’s Girlfriend Jacklyn Braasch?
After his divorce from Alicia was finalized, many were not still sure if Chief was in fact dating Jackelyn until he confirmed it himself on his podcast. “Well, now what happened in the past is something I don’t have control over,” the popular race car driver said on his podcast. “…But now I’m looking at my future, I have plans and Jackie is my future.”
His new girlfriend is also a racer like him. While Chief has not been open about sharing their origin story due to the controversial way in which they started dating, it is highly likely that they met for the first time on the set of Discovery’s channel’s Street Outlaws or perhaps during a racing event.
Jacklyn who was born on the 4th of July, 1990 in Joliet, Illinois hails from a family of street racecar drivers. Her father was into the sport from a young age and when Jacklyn was born he introduced her to it, often taking her to see racecar events in their local. She revealed that the year she was born was when her father began building his ’85 Chevy Camaro and when she was of age, she began working with him at the garage, helping him to bring tools.
In elementary school and at the age of 8, Jacklyn began racing and started in the junior dragster division. She also raced alongside her sister. After high school, Jacklyn ditched college in order to focus on racing professionally. At the age of 17, she became a professional drag racer. She competed at the time in the super pro, and the rocket brand race fuel bracket series. She then became part of a women’s motorsport organization called Car Chix.
With Car Chix, she made it to the top 12 out of 398 competitors at the Ladies Only Drag Race Competition. She was named Car Chix’s Ms. May in 2015 and featured in the year’s calendar. Jacklyn continues to chase her career as a drag racer.
Big Chief And His Ex-Wife Had Two Kids Together
While Big Chief and his girlfriend Jacklyn are yet to welcome kids of their own, the Street Outlaw star is a father of two sons from his previous marriage to Alicia. Their sons are named Cobrin Shearer and Covil Shearer. After his divorce from Alicia, Big Chief later revealed that he would continue to maintain an amicable relationship with his ex-wife Alicia in order to effectively co-parent their two kids.
He occasionally posts photos of his sons on Instagram and it appears he has already introduced them to the world of drag racing. He refers to his sons as his biggest fans and proudest supporters. He once posted a photo on Instagram of his sons and revealed in the caption how he knows he would in the future regret not spending a lot of time with them because of his busy schedule as a drag racer. He added that it was unfair to his kids that he had not grown up yet.
