“I think we are both reluctant to bury 20 years of marriage. We are human beings, we make mistakes and that is the human condition,” he explained. The pair were married back in 1996 and filed for the split back in June of 2014.

“The life I had with Melanie was beautiful. We had 20 wonderful years during which we gave our best and lived wonderful moments that I will not forget,” he went on to say.

“We had a wonderful daughter that we both love and that is the end result of our relationship, the most beautiful thing we have ever done together,” he added in reference to their daughter, Stella, 23.

“And even though we are separated legally, she is still my family. When I go to Los Angeles I visit her and just yesterday we were talking on the phone. Everything happens naturally…our children, all of them, are very grateful we manage to do it all in a civil manner.”

He recently brought Stella to this glamorous event…
