The TV host clarified that she was the one who initiated the breakup because of her health problems.

"I'm reminded of what your doctor cousin told me, the responsibility of making sure you don't get covid given your auto immune. That's the reason I decided not to proceed there because I might further put you at risk and I don't want to be blamed for it," he continued.

Mel's messages continued to explain that he accepts Kris' offer of separation to keep her safe. According to Mel, he knows the veracity of Kris' autoimmune disease and would not risk her getting COVID-19 because of him.

"On that note, with a heavy heart, I accepted your offer of letting me go. For I cannot in conscience be able to accept that something will happen to you that brought about my going out of the bubble."

"I will always cherish in my heart the happy moments we had together. I do love you, but I guess this is goodbye for your life is of greatest importance given that you have Bimby and Josh to take care of."

"You will forever be in my heart," Mel's chat message ended.
