“ Over the past few months, my mental and physical health has collapsed, reaching a level that is unhealthy for me and my family, he wrote on Instagram. I know this decision will be a shock to some and may be considered unpopular by others, but after carefully considering where I am and where I am going, I need to step aside and be at home with my family for the time being. »
