I remember an interview he had on the Tyra Banks Show way back in 2007. He actually confessed to seeing his mom being beaten by her boyfriend. He was visually abused from age 7 up until he was 13. I have also heard of a lot of people who went through domestic violence when they were at a young age, and admitted to committing the same crime on their spouses or children. So I guess that explains it all. Sad, but it's a fact of life.
