I stopped living by the core values that I was taught to believe in. I knew my actions were wrong, but I convinced myself that normal rules didn’t apply…instead I only thought about myself.「私は本当の価値ある人生を生きていなかった。間違っているとはわかっていても、私には普通のルールは適用されないだろうと思っていた。
I thought I could get away with whatever I wanted to, deserve to enjoy all the temptations around me. I thought I was entitled. Thanks to money and fame, i didn’t have to go far to find them. I was wrong; I was foolish. I don’t get to play by different rules. The same boundaries that apply to everyone apply to me. I brought this shame on myself. I hurt my wife, my kids, my mother, my wife’s family, my friends, my foundation and kids all around the world who admired me.
Despite the damage I have done, I still believe it is right to shield my family from the public spotlight. I always tried to maintain a private space from my sponsors. When my children were born, we only released photographs so the paparazzi could not chase them. They staked out my wife and they pursued my mom. Whatever my wrongdoings, for the sake of my family, please leave my wife and my kids alone.
