The actor and his wife have mostly been living apart for the last several years and seemed happy in their own space. But ever since he got started getting sober, his wife would stay with him on and off. The source adds, "He made life miserable for her and they had parted ways. It was much later that the couple decided to be together for their kids' sake. A few days ago, the actor got sloshed and attacked his wife. After that he locked himself in his room for a day. Now he has sought help of experts and medicines to get over alcohol dependency."
