A preview of the interview aired on “Good Morning America” Thursday (Sept. 1), and in it Anthony asserts that the breakup “wasn’t some sensationalistic happening.”
ABC’s John Quinones asks him about rumors of infidelity, including one that had Anthony allegedly sleeping with a flight attendant.
“It was the flight attendant. It was the pilot, I heard,” Anthony says. “It was this guy sitting next to me in a rehab in Houston. I’ve heard it all.”
The actual reason for their split, he says, was that they both saw their marriage wasn’t working anymore.
“It was a realization on both our parts,” he says. “It wasn’t shocking — these things happen.”
A preview of the interview is below. The full story airs on “Nightline” at 11:30 p.m. ET Thursday.
