My wife and I fought a lot about nothing,” the Metro FM jock says, adding that the fights would lead to verbal abuse. Our son was three years old when he caught one of our fights and it bothered me that my son was seeing his dad is that guy,” Explained the DJ.
He added that there were times when he had to learn to manage his temper and measure his words.”At times we think just because we didn’t beat her up, we are not abusers. Sometimes even a loaded statement cuts deeper. He added to his reasons that he wants to set a good example to his son through teaching him the importance of respecting women and himself.
