“Before we got married, I just thought, ‘I’ve got to marry her, I just love her so much.’ And then we got married and I thought, ‘Okay, this isn’t really working out," Russell said.

“’I don’t want anything to hurt her," Russell said regarding rumors that disagreements over starting a family were at the root of their issues. "She’s younger than me, she’s a young woman and she’s beautiful and she’s sensitive and I care about her deeply.” Russell also said that religious beliefs had nothing to do with the end of their union.
