"It’s slowly but surely becoming public knowledge that myself and my wife have decided to go ahead and get a divorce… It's not a sad thing, it's more of a us realizing, long story short, I'm never gonna talk bad about her. I'm not that person. There's nothing bad to say about her," the singer shared on the podcast.

Taking inspiration from the hardship, the sexy love singer penned his new single Pinky Ring.

"The song is about how I chose to handle the situation, the way that I chose to lift myself up and keep moving, as we all must do."
