The 30-year-old model-turned-photographer admits he is a control freak, and deliberately destroyed his romance with the SPINNING AROUND singer when his love for her made him feel vulnerable.
He explains, "When I got to the point of thinking, 'This person means everything to me.' I got scared.
"It was an overall sense of getting in too deep and losing control of my emotions.
"In a sense I related being in control of any area of my life to being safe.
"I ended up having a relationship with Sophie Dahl. So, yeah, I basically f**ked around with someone else.
"I'm not proud of it, but there are plenty of men who have done that."
