“I’ve reached out to Chris, and the message that came back is that he is not ready to talk — and when he is, he will reach out,” Will said.

Unfortunately, the source says that they believe the timing of the apology was more for Will’s best interest, not for Chris.

While Chris hasn’t made any public statements about the future of his relationship with Will, he did say he’s “not a victim” in the situation.
