Today, Mark says to ABC that he regrets how he handled it all. He wrote a letter to Chapman saying it should have been him who died, not her. He drove by her home. He says of Jennair, “I broke her heart and more than anything, [out] of all of this, my regret comes back to breaking her heart and making her feel like she had no other choice,” he said. “I wish I wouldn’t have hurt her because I loved her. I still love her. I wish I could take it back.”
