Soul legend Lionel Richie’s second marriage fell apart when he broke a promise to himself and went back to work in the studio.

The “Hello” singer shared about his romantic ups and downs with British newsman Piers Morgan and also shed light on how his nine-year marriage to former mistress Diana Alexander fell apart in 2003, reported Daily Telegraph.

“I made a promise that I would not go back to work. One day I knew I was in trouble because I just happened to stumble back into the recording studio. Over,” Richie, 66, said.

In his candid chat with Morgan, which airs as part of the show “Piers Morgan’s Life Stories”, he also recalled shutting down a tour in Europe in 2005 to enter rehab with his troubled daughter Nicole after she was arrested for possession of  heroin.

“That’s a fairly cataclysmic thing for any father to have to watch his beautiful, young daughter go through.

“I got a phone call and she said, ‘Dad, I need help…’ And I said, ‘I am with you’, and I cancelled the tour. I said, ‘Me and your mother’, who didn’t get along that well, ‘Me and your mother are checking into rehab with you’,” he added.
