It was like, ‘You’re going to sit with me, woman,’ and she did. I was very impressed but also confused. I mean who was this guy? Maybe she brought out the testosterone in him. I do not know. But one thing I do know: she loved him. And that relationship turned into one of the biggest tabloid nightmares of all time.”
