Appearing on Jason Lee's podcast earlier this month, The Daily Cannon host, 42, was asked about how he protects his assets in co-parenting with the moms of his kids.

"I don't care about that stuff. I believe true currency is your energy. I wish I could make a contract, 'You cannot take this much of my energy when you leave,' " he shared.

"Money comes and goes. I always tell people, 'Money don't make you happy. Happy makes you money,'" he continued. "So I'm always going to be good, and every dollar that I make is for my family."
