Speaking to The Mirror about the news, Shane said: "I didn't know about the split. I don't know the details but I was surprised."

Shane said Brian appeared to be happy the last time he had seen him, which was just several weeks ago.

"I saw Brian a few weeks ago to play golf and he seemed happy," Shane continued. "I've dropped him a text and I'm there if he needs me."
