According to his utterances, the death of his mother left a deep hole in his life thrusting him to lose the qualities required to be a good father.

He became aggressive and obsessive deploying all the pressure on his wife who gave up on their union.

His words:

“There is a part of me that will take the easy route. Everytime I did something mediocre in my life, I always did it when I was emotional, because I am extremely strategic and deliberate about everything I do.”

“I had suffered a loss. My mom was like my best friend, my co-partner. People always wonder how he rise from some of these scandals, how he rises from things that are supposed to bury him.”

“I had someone that speaks to a spirit part of me that nobody can speak to and I lost that.”

“When I lost my mom, I could not find my feet for years. The lifestyle, spirituality, connection had already been lost.”

“I was not told until 72 hours after she passed. I was right in the middle of an interview in London. On the plane, while on my way back home after 72 hours, I asked myself, ‘What would she have expected of me? To take charge.”

“I came and I took charge as the head of the family, I couldn’t grief, I could not let myself feel.”

“When I was getting over it. My wife was pregnant with my first son. I had a quiet space. There was nobody to take care of, and because that was my medium to heal.”

“All of a sudden the grief hit me, the loss hit me. I could not sleep unending days, I became irritable. I was no longer the loving man she married.”

“I lost my sense of humor. I lost the lion in me, and the leader in me. I just gave myself to the elements and she suffered for that.”

“I became an obsessive dad, I took everything in me to my son and left her behind. I took all of my love and attention and I left her behind”
