“I would not want my life to not have Shantel in it. We’ve been seeing each other for five or six years. Any time you can connect with somebody like that, it works out for the long run.

The former couple reportedly got together in 2014 after being introduced through a mutual friend.
In 2017 he credited their initial friendship as the foundation of their relationship, sharing: “Being friends first, I think, is something important.
“Then, I feel like you come into a situation that’s genuine. I think some of my past relationships, I don’t think everybody came into them genuinely.
"And when you don’t come into them genuinely, sometimes it festers and sometimes you end relationships for the wrong reasons.
"But when you come in it genuinely, and you enjoy just being around that person, that’s important.”
He also said then of the early days of their relationship: “It’s dope, you know? To have anybody, in whatever it is that you’re doing.
To have the person that you love, the person that you f— with, come out and support you, that’s all you want. That’s all that anybody’s looking for.”
