On April 19 of this year the player also previously talked about his 2011 divorce in the talk show the Pivot. “Sometimes when you live that double life, you get caught up. I’m not going to say it was her. She did exactly what she was supposed to do and gave me beautiful kids, take care of the house, take care of the corporate stuff. It was just all me.”
