Mike hasn’t talked openly about his past and his book gives fans a better idea about what he has gone through. In the book, he talks about how he was sexually assaulted by his babysitter when he was very young. He never told his parents about it until just recently.
“It was kind of hard for me to talk to my mom and my dad about it at first. It was hard for me to write as I was writing it. I had to take deep breaths. It was absolutely emotional homework for me, but it’s so therapeutic once you get it out there. You can’t just bury the things that hurt you, because it will come up at some point in time. You have to go through it, because if not, it will come up to haunt you.”
