Alanis Morissette speaks!

Alanis Morissette's former business manager is just now apologizing for stealing nearly $5 MILLION from her account!

As we previously reported, Jonathan Schwartz admitted to stealing from the Ironic songstress, along with other clients for a total of over $6.5 million. He has since pleaded guilty and is expected to be sentenced May 3.

Now, the thieving manager is trying to make amends by explaining what led him to steal in an open letter published on The Hollywood Reporter's site.

So, what's to blame?? Schwartz says his gambling addiction and high-stress job:

"I often turned to drugs to deal with the stress but mostly sought refuge in the world of sports gambling. The spiral I was in was toxic. Winning did not make me feel better but losing was intolerable. If I lost, then I had to make it back and when I lost again, the hole I had dug got deeper and deeper."

He continued, sharing how he justified taking his client's millions:

"I lived a double life since no one other than my bookie knew I had this 'dark' side. At first, I 'borrowed' a little from clients, with the hopes that I would pay them back if I won that night's bet. That snowballed, and as I kept losing, I kept stealing. I kept telling myself that I just needed one lucky break, and I'll pay them back. That lucky break never came — thankfully. I say thankfully because when I was finally caught, a bright spotlight shined on my deplorable conduct. I could not hide any longer and hit rock bottom."

Unfortunately for Jonathan, Alanis wasn't buying ANY of it!

In response to his letter of admission, the 42-year-old stated:

"I would be apprehensive to believe any words that come out of Jonathan Schwartz's mouth."

Yikes!

Can you blame her for having hard feelings though??
