Ja Rule began his two-year jail term last week for possession of a weapon, but his wife, Aisha Atkins, says he made sure to take care of his family financially before checking in to prison on Wednesday.

"He did leave us well off. All the rumors about Ja being broke are far from true," Atkins told TMZ. "Ja made sure... that me and my kids wouldn't need anything as far as income goes. He planned well before he went in.

"We won't be bad ... even for a little bit," she continued, adding that making sure his family was financially stable was "Ja's first priority as a man who makes sure family comes first."—XXL Staff
