Do you know what happens when you lie with dogs? …wait look who I’m talking to. And then blame my addiction. Yes, divorce is the right thing to do.”
Days later, he retracted the allegation, claiming he and Standifer were working on their marriage. “I was wrong. She’s not that kind of person,” he said The sun on January 30th. “For a relationship, it’s a work in progress.”
