“Rumours ain’t helping matters a lot. It said that I had blamed my ex-wife for my alcoholism, that I was trapped in this marriage, just made me out to be the worst, most insensitive, stupid, awful guy in front of everyone that’s sounds ridiculous and annoying,but all has right to speech.”

According to interviews where he made some statement he said: “I was like, ‘I can’t leave because of my kids, but I’m not happy, what do I do?’ And what I did was [I] drank a bottle of scotch and fell asleep on the couch, which turned out not to be the solution.”
