The “Sounds of Goodbye” singer told the outlet that the pressures of fame contributed to their separation, which he believes would be coming a long time ago.

“I think I took Sahodra’s kindness for granted. In hindsight, I should have given her more hugs,” said the Malaysian-born entertainer.

“She really is the wind under my wings. Now I realize that I was probably not the most attentive husband,” she added. “Fame can do that, it can distract from what really matters, and that’s family. But I keep it all crossed, we can get through this tough time, as she really is my everything.”
