‘I understand and respect that people are going to ask. I’ve never really cared too much about other people’s personal lives, but I understand if there’s interest.’

‘I’ve got 50 per cent custody of my daughter with my ex-wife, we have an awesome friendship, and our daughter is certainly both of our priorities. Thankfully, that’s important to both of us’ he said.
