Aaron Abeyta — better known to NOFX fans as El Jefe — is about to take on a new moniker: bachelor.
According to court records, Abeyta’s wife Jennifer filed for divorce on Wednesday. The couple has one child together.
El Jefe joined the band NOFX in 1991 and the group last released an album in 2016.
NOFX took a lot of heat last year when a video circulated showing band members making a series of insensitive jokes onstage about 2017’s mass shooting at the Las Vegas country music festival, which left 58 people dead and 489 injured.
NOFX frontman Fat Mike joked onstage, “We played a song about Muslims and we didn’t get shot.” Another band member then chimed in, “I guess you only get shot in Vegas if you are in a county band.”
A third added, “That [shooting] sucked, but at least they were country fans and not punk rock fans.”
Fat Mike later apologized for the remarks, saying, “I can’t sleep, no one in my band can. What we said in Vegas was shitty and insensitive and we are all embarrassed by our remarks.”
