It was a week ago when Steve was called up for a press conference in his home town for the recent award he got. Nobody thought it would happen, but the channels which were to telecast his interview and praise his achievements, criticized for using ugly statements to the reporters. Even there was a case filed against him which took everyone aback.

His personal lawyer Adam suggested him not to reply any of the outer statements or debates until the whole controversy blows over the whole internet and magazines for the fact it could increase his complications.

Steve was totally broken down by seeing the hate comments on his YouTube channel, Twitter or Facebook.

“I did not say anything bad just like this. There were some of the people who provoked me by saying rude comments about us and my family. I could not bear that, and it all drived me up the wall (Click here!) and it all happened”, said Steve to his wife Emma.

Emma being a devoted wife could not see his husband broken down like this; hence she decided to get away to Italy with her husband so that he can get some good vibes before starting off his new movie project down the line (Click here!).
