“I want to apologise to the mother of my children because for many years we’ve been in the media. At some point she took the kids and said she was ready to meet someone else. “I apologise for not being man enough to be worthy of her, to the point where she resorted to speaking to other people about me – just so she could say, ‘Stop, this man can’t do this’.”
