He has been active in keeping his fans up to date on his personal life but now wants to have rest. He wrote on his Instagram account: "Hello all. I'm taking break from my phone, e-mails and all social media for while." He went on to explain: "I've had such amazing [time] over last five years but I find myself seeing world through screen and not my eyes."
