Sources told Star at the time that he "cried all the time" on the set of Members Only because he had felt "so profoundly lonely" after Loretta's passing. "He meant it when he called his mom the love of his life," the source said.

"John also doesn't want to have a baby with a woman he's not married to — so his options are limited," a source told the National ENQUIRER in 2015. "He knows that in order to realize his dream before it's too late, he needs to get busy and find Mrs. Right."
