Why did James Brown and Velma Warren Brown break up?

"As busy as I was, I couldn't get home as often as before, and when I did get home, I could tell Velma and I were drifting apart. More and more I came home a stranger. She was the best home woman I've ever had, and she never tried to stop me from making it. She could see what was happening, and she didn't try to fight it at all. She always had a kind word to say. And later on, she never tried to turn the children against me."
