On Sunday, he joked about the next chapter of his life.
“Now that you all know about my divorce, get ready for my ‘my apartment building’ tweets! They’re all about living in an apartment!” he tweeted.
“One of my bigger regrets since moving into my own apartment a few months ago is that the people in the office bldg across the street who’ve had to see me naked never got to see my a– before it fell,” he added.
