British soccer player-turned-actor Vinnie Jones gave up drinking and enrolled in therapy after he was caught on camera kissing another woman behind his wife's back. The Snatch star was pictured locking lips with Russian singer Lama Safonova outside a bar in Moscow, where he had been shooting a documentary, and video footage was subsequently posted online, prompting the actor to issue a public apology to his wife, Tanya. Jones, who branded the incident a "set-up", has now opened up about the impact it had on his marriage, revealing he decided to give up booze and start seeing a psychologist in the aftermath of the scandal in a bid to save his marriage. In his new autobiography, It's Been Emotional, Jones writes, "That incident caused the biggest test of my 20 years of marriage... We've been through everything and... this angel is still there for me through thick and thin. I had risked everything that mattered to me over a stupid night out in Russia... "That is the lowest I've seen Tans (sic) in all the time we have been together... Now I know we have a lot of work still to do, but we both love each other more than anything on the planet and that is getting us through. That is why, for the first time in my life, I have started seeing a psychologist. I have virtually given up drinking alcohol... I've been going to see him (my psychologist) once a week for eight months. For an alcoholic to combat his or her problems, he or she has to admit to those problems first."
