He added: "Love is being angry. Love is not talking for a day. Love is getting in each other's face. Love is accepting that I'm wrong. Love is a 360-degree thing. It's not linear."

He continued: "They always say you're not supposed to fight in front of your kids. Everybody fights in front of their kids. That's part of the deal."
