Morgan heaped praise onto Peterson, as he applauded the psychologist for coming through for Ronaldo at a time when the 37-year-old was going through a difficult time.

Earlier in 2022, Ronaldo lost one of his unborn twins and amid his grieving phase, he was subject to mass criticism in his professional life.

"It seemed to me, talking to him in the last couple of days after he saw you, he's in a much better place," Morgan told Peterson, to which the latter responded:
"That's what happens when you hang out with a reprobate like me."

Peterson went on to reveal he had a deep 2-hour conversation with Ronaldo where they discussed financial and personal aspirations.

"He'd had some trouble in his life a few months ago and a friend of his sent him some of my videos and he said he'd watched those. Then he read one of my books and found it helpful, he wanted to talk.”
