He acknowledged the split during his Saturday Night Live monologue by proclaiming that he had recently gone through his “very first public breakup.”

“Most people after a breakup are like, ‘I’m going to get in better shape.’ But I was already in Creed shape!”
As a result of him already being in tip-top physical condition, Michael noted that he had to focus on other pursuits, like language-learning. He also showed off his Spanish-speaking skills when sharing the he’s joined a membership-based app called Raya to network.
“So I had to be like, ‘All right, I guess I’ll learn a new language.’ Anyway, estoy en Raya.”
