But, it's incredibly unfair to allow someone to carry the burden, blame & shame of something they had nothing to do with," he wrote, noting he met Bailon two years ago while working together on "As I previously wrote in a statement I released a while back, My marriage had been over for quite some time before going public with my divorce announcement...
