Charles Was An Alcoholic

Charles opened up that he was an alcoholic and was so addicted to alcohol that it was affecting his relationship with his child and wife. 

Dave and Hillary, his band members, knew about his alcohol addiction and sat him down to leave it, but he didn’t. 

He tried getting sober but didn’t show as much effort as he did when he knew about his son being affected by it. 

His wife told him that their son notices when Charles comes home drunk, but Charles never realized that his son knew about his drinking until his wife told him. 

He felt evil, as his alcohol habit was affecting his family. He knew he had to stop drinking, so he went to rehab. 

Back in the day, he was suggested by many therapists to go to rehab, but he was so scared that he didn’t. This time, he thought about it and made more efforts to leave alcohol behind, which worked. 

Charles Worries About His Son 

Charles and his wife Cassie share a beautiful son, Ward, together. 

In the interview with People, Charles and his wife they talked about their concern for their child. 

Charles and his wife can give their son more than they ever got in their life. 

They go on traveling with their son Ward and feel so lucky that their son can see the world with them. 

He feels grateful for that. However, he does feel concerned about Ward getting unseen because of Charles's fame. 

They want their son to have his own life, choose his life, and not try to compete with what Charles has. 

They don’t want Ward trying to get fame or success just because Charles has. 

Both parents want their son to be who he wants to be as an individual.

Charles's Marriage Nearly Ended

Charles's alcohol nearly ended his marriage with Cassie. The duo went on a vacation in Greece, where they got into a fight. 

They were pissed at each other, and Charles was so angry that he left his wife and went outside. 

He didn’t tell Cassie where he was going and even turned off his cell. 

He was tired of listening to others telling him what to do, so he went outside and started drinking alcohol with some strangers. 

Cassie tried calling him and was so worried that she didn’t even sleep the whole night. 

When Charles woke up the following day, he returned and decided to go to rehab. 

But his wife was so done with him that she decided to get a divorce from him. Luckily, his wife didn’t, and he got saved from losing his wife and son.
