In another interview, James further added, 

“My wife, Francesca, has been the most amazing person in my life. She has ridden the big waves with me. We have gone through some extremely difficult things and come out stronger. She’s stuck with me through all the hell. When I met her, I knew she was brought to me to help me get out of this hell hole. And she did. There was a point where she stood up for the family, saying, ‘You’ve got to get out of here. You’ve got to go get yourself together. I’m not submitting me or my kids through this.’ Fear is a great motivator. I have abandonment issues because I’ve had one family that disintegrated. I didn’t want another one too.”
