He was referring to a 2010 interview with Playboy in which he publicly described his relationship with Jessica as “sexual napalm”. Ten years later, Jessica opened up about their dynamic in her memoir.

“No, I really don’t think I am owed a public apology,” she said. “I mean, you can’t take it back. And I’m a very forgiving person but I’m also honest.
