“That’s another thing to point out. Amber and I have been in a relationship for three years. This isn’t some new thing where Amber learns secrets about my life via supermarket tabloids and gossip websites.

“The people who now have stories to sell are the people who wanted to have nothing to do with me back in the day. Today, they claim they had hot and heavy crazy relationships with me. When all this was going on, and new stories were popping up daily, one of my exes—who I actually did have a relationship with, and you’ll meet her later—stepped up. She reached out to the press and told them she was with me during those times and none of this stuff was true. Know what the reporters did?

Let’s get started at the real beginning of my real story: World, meet Matt Baier.”
