"Sometimes when you live that double life, you get caught up. I'm not going to say it was her; it was all me. She did exactly what she was supposed to do and gave me beautiful kids, take care of the house, and take care of the corporate stuff. It was just all me. Sometimes, when you make a lot of mistakes like that, you can't really come back from that," further said.
