As previously reported, Fualaau filed for a legal separation from Letourneau on May 9. He said he filed not because he didn't love his wife, but in order to be eligible for a license to become a distributor for “Cigaweed” marijuana cigarettes.

Dismissing his own past DUI arrest, Fualaau said the only possible road block to his business success was his wife’s history. She served more than seven years in prison for having sex with Fualaau when he was her sixth grade student back in 1996. He was sentenced to a year in jail for DUI in 2006.

“Anything that is 10 years old won’t affect it,” he said about his own arrest. “But it is all a point system. It depends on the severity of it. Who knows? They make exceptions too.”

During an interview with 20/20 in 2015 he spoke about his substance abuse issues, but told that he was not telling the truth back then.

Fualaau admitted that he does drink, but not that he had a problem. “Everybody drinks," he claimed. "That’s not substance abuse.”

Meanwhile, Letorneau’s former student insisted that he only filed the paperwork to separate from Letourneau for business reasons.

“It’s a piece of paper that doesn’t say much," he said.

Indeed, Fualaau and Letourneau have two children together, but he told they were unaware of the divorce filing.

“Who is going to say the kids even know?" he said. "My kids have no idea what happens in the media.”

Fualaau told that he shuns the spotlight.

“I consider myself a regular person," he continued. "The stuff that happened was 15 years ago and I don't consider myself a celebrity. No matter what I say or what I do, nobody around me cares about his fame. I do my DJ job nobody comes up to me and says: ‘I saw a story on you.’”

Despite the public court documents, Fualaau assured that there is more to the story than just a divorce.

“There is a piece of paper that is filed but that doesn't depict what is going on," he said.

He warned “Be patient. it's not as serious as people think it is. ... Maybe we’re sleeping in different rooms. The paperwork that is filed doesn’t have all that information.”

He taunted the veracity of his filing, telling, “If you really want to know what happens, wait one year from now and see if the paper work is still filed.”
