“Truth be told, it’s not something we wanted to promote,” said the singer. “We’re a collective power together because our private life is sacred. But you know what though, maybe it’s time. Maybe it is time for the world to know that I have a very secure situation and a loving woman supporting me the entire way.” he said
The former Voice judge, who was previously married to Christina Johnson, says he has found a “very genuine and honest” partner in James.
“I appreciate her openness and willingness to love unconditionally,” he said. “She’s been so sweet to me through a number of different trials that come to test the resilience of a union to deem whether it’s worthy or not, whether it’s durable or strong enough.”
