"To this day, I mean it honestly, he's the best man I know...I married him because he's like my dad," Mai said at the time of divorce publicly. "He's very loyal, he's very compassionate, so funny, an awesome guy and in our 13 years of being together there was never any lies, no betrayal, no cheating, nothing."
