While an affair is devastating to a relationship, it seems like Bumpus and King moved past their drama to successfully co-parent their kids. Apparently things are so good between the two that they’re able to friends!

In Bumpus’ humble statement, he explained:

“I have been haunted with this life altering choice. Though I have dealt with this privately .├óΓé¼ΓÇ░.├óΓé¼ΓÇ░. I publicly apologize for the major transgression that dramatically changed all of our lives. I have nothing but the utmost respect for Gayle and how she handled herself with grace. Despite the situation, she kept our children, as well as my relationship and involvement with them, as a clear priority. Gayle was a great wife, an excellent mother and a fantastic co-parent. I am eternally grateful for all that she has done and continues to do to enrich my life and the lives of our incredible adult children. I continue to be a work in progress and have spent the last 26 years striving to be a better man and father. I applaud Gayle’s continued phenomenal success and friendship!”

Despite the renewed interest in W.B.’s infidelity, it’s obvious the former couple has MOVED ON. We don’t doubt it took a lot of work and patience to get to this point — we commend the two for their mutual maturity!

So, are YOU satisfied with William’s apology?
