He released a statement on Instagram and revealed that their marriage ended after discovering that his first child was not his and his wife had hidden the truth from him.
Part of the statement said, “I have never been one to physically violate anybody, including my ex-wife. Our marriage was plagued with a lot of issues.

“Both times, I was cleared of all allegations, and I have the necessary proof to back up my claim. If anyone should be laying claims to domestic violence, it should be me. It is heartbreaking that I even have to issue this statement under these circumstances, as I have put the unfortunate incidents surrounding my ex-wife and me and the final collapse of our union behind me. I am appealing to my ex-wife to remember our kids and to not continue on this path she has chosen, as the Internet never forgets, and they will one day grow up to deal with this mess she is hell-bent on creating. I have no issues with her and would like to continue to mind the business that pays me. If she has any issues joining with me, she is free to file her complaints and approach any court of competent jurisdiction to pursue justice.”
