“I’ve had a lot of different struggles in my life,” he expressed. “Financial struggles, personal struggles…just a whole lot of struggles as well as also I feel like I’m finally in a place…like, I was so broken after everything I went through, literally broken, of which I was devastated. I could barely walk, I was so broken as a person after going through all the trauma as well as also the divorce as well as also all these different things.”
