In an appearance on “Ellen” Mayer explained, "It was a very private relationship going in. It was a private relationship during, and it's a private relationship still."
He added, "I can understand asking the question based on some previous answers I have given, but I have finally learned how to put the wall between one thing and the other. I've been much happier since then."
Mayer did admit, "I'm on the same journey as everyone else. Coupling is a tricky thing."
