Malcolm-Jamal Warner and Regina King seemed like the perfect Hollywood couple, so when the news of their breakup went public last March, we were blindsided, sad and curious as to what exactly went wrong.

Both actors — who are notorious for keeping their private lives, well, private — have been hush-hush about the spilt for nearly nine months. Luckily for us, Warner finally decided to open up about relationship during a recent interview with Sister 2 Sister magazine.

“All relationships have their share of obstacles, and you just try not to have yours plastered,” he said.

“I mean, you try not to date in the spotlight. I think what Regina and I—you know, we had been together for several years before people realized we were together,” he added. “So unfortunately our breakup got more coverage than our being together, and that kind of sucked ‘cause we spent so much time trying to keep it out of the public eye, and then the breakup was so much in the public eye.”

When asked about his relationships with King’s young son from a previous relationship, Warner said, “We’re all very cool.”
