Don, who used to party, changed when he met Kelley, a Montessori school teacher.

In 2017, he told DailyMail.com: “People don’t develop to the point of being able to have mature, long-term relationships until they are in their 30s, and for some of us.”

Then he said, gesturing to himself, “It takes even more time.”

Don said he stopped using drugs with the help of Buddhism and New Age self-help. He also let go of “fear.”
