London: Singer-TV host Peter Andre says he thought his wife Emily would leave him after his brother died.
The “Mysterious Girl” hitmaker’s sibling died of cancer in December 2012, and the tragedy caused the 43-year-old star to “hit rock bottom”.
Andre was suffering from anxiety attacks which were pushing his partner away from him, reported Female First.
“When I hit rock bottom I thought Emily was going to leave me. She’s told me how difficult it was to be with me. I told her at the time ‘Go, you don’t have to deal with me’, but she said no way – that she was in it for the long haul.
“She was so matter-of-fact about staying…I knew I’d spend the rest of my life with her. If someone doesn’t argue with you when you’re at rock bottom and shutting them out, you can get through anything,” Andre said.
Over a year after Andrew’s death, Peter proposed to Emily shortly before she gave birth to their daughter Amelia, now two. PTI
