“What country music means to me is it’s three chords and the truth and it shines a light on things that happen in everyday life that are wonderful, not so wonderful, and that’s heart-wrenching,” Schneider, 58, says .
“I’ve been going through a divorce now for four years and it’s awful. Det verste partiet om det er at det er wedged seg imellem mine tre voksne barn og jeg. Nothing i can do except hope one day one of my kids will call me up or show up. I look into the crowd every Monday thinking maybe tonight, maybe tonight. “
” If it were not for this music and now Dancing with the Stars I do not think I can survive it, “He admits. “It gives me great joy at a time where I desperately needed it.”
Earlier in the season, Schneider briefly spoke to his relationship with his children.
“I’m hoping that I will do my family proud, I’ll do my love over there proudly,” said Schneider told host Erin Andrews, referencing his girlfriend, Alicia, and added, “and maybe my children will talk to me again.”
After 21 years of marriage, Schneider’s estranged wife Elvira “Elly” Schneider filed for divorce in Los Angeles County on Nov. 14, 2014. She cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split, according to court documents.
In September 2016, Schneider – he shares adult children Leah, Chasen and Karis with Elvira – was ordered to pay his ex $ 18,911 every month, TMZ reported.
But in June, Schneider was sentenced to three days behind bars in the Los Angeles County Jail in June for failure to pay more than $ 150,000 in owed alimony payments to Elvira. The actor was released on the same day as his initial booking because of California’s overcrowded prison system, but his legal woes were not done with that.
Schneider was also ordered to serve an additional 120 hours behind bars for contempt, but that sentence var suspenderet ved retten på betingelse af at han oppfylt en fireparts liste over vilkår, herunder filing tilbakebetaling for å få klar titel på deres ejendom i Apple Valley så at det kunne overføres til henne, idet han betalte halvparten av hans skyldte inntekter
