He also thanked his family, including his eldest son, who is in prison.

"Shout out to my oldest son, Cameron, and hoping that I'll be able and they'll allow me to see him soon."

Catherine and Michael announced their split earlier this month, but the 'Chicago' actress is still wearing her ring and they are reportedly working through their problems.
