In his online post, he says that “until now” he has “lived exactly as I’ve wanted to”, acquiring his “share of money, social status, and fame along the way”.
He continues: “But now I’m restarting my life. I’m 44 now. As feelings of loneliness and emptiness slowly begin to surge upon me, there’s one thing that I think about: continuing to love one woman.”
It is “something that I haven’t quite been able to do until now”, he added.
He has “a passion for collecting contemporary art, Japanese antiques, supercars, wine etc”.
