Arj was promoting his new stand-up tour, Comes Clean, when Karl asked an innocent question about whether Arj's wife would be joining him on the tour.

Arj said he had been married to wife Whitney for three years, before stating: 'Karl, you may relate to this.'

And now we're entering a sort of phase where we're like it's so cool, how do I put it, it's like we're rediscovering our individuality. Oh wait, divorce, that's it,' Arj joked.
