In a recent interview with Utica Observer-Dispatch, Tom explained the reason behind his abrupt exit.
Just months after beginning his journey on The Voice, Tom filed for divorce from his ex-wife. The Purple Heart recipient ultimately decided that caring for his two children had to come first.
“It’s always been a dream of mine to pursue music full-time, but I can’t do that without a cushion,” he said. “As a dad, I need to make sure my children will be supported.”
Tom also recalled a conversation he had with fellow contestant Jacquie Roar about the matter.
“I spilled my guts,” he said. “I told her about how I had just received an email from my lawyers urging me to come home because my ex-wife was going after primary custody.”
He continued, “I am happy with the decision I made, but should it have come to that point? Absolutely not.”
