And if you don't let me go.
He let her go.
And then he faked his death.
He is Patrick McDermott, 48, who the entire world reported disappeared during a night fishing trip in California, having broken up with the Australian singer and actress after a nine-year relationship.
He has surfaced in Mexico living on a boat and has no intention in getting in touch with the ex.
He was believed to have fallen overboard but his body was never recovered. Miss Newton-John described his disappearance as "...heartbreaking...".
It is alleged that Mr. McDermott faked his death to escape mounting debts and to enable his teenage son to benefit from a $100,000 US life insurance policy.
