Wiz Khalifa hated the effect his split from Amber Rose had on their son more than himself.

Rapper Wiz Khalifa has no regrets about walking away from his marriage to Amber Rose, but wishes their young son wasn't part of the drama.

The See You Again performer split from the model in September, 2014, a little over a year after they married.

They are now friends after waging a public war of words on social media and in the press, and Wiz believes it was the right decision to end their union.

"I feel like not being in that relationship helped me out a lot," he told Playboy magazine. "I learned how to be present where I need to be present. I'd been present in the relationship, but at that age and with what was going on, it just wasn't right for me. It helps to walk away sometimes, even though it was super hard."

The 28-year-old was more concerned about the impact of the couple's split on his three-year-old son, Sebastian, than his own feelings.

"I was sad after it ended, but I wasn't depressed," he continued. "I've never really been depressed in my life. I was sad because we were going through a lot and my son was involved, and that hurt me because my main goal is to raise my son how I want.

"I'm a control freak, and not being able to control that was weird. I didn't know how to deal with it and didn't understand that feeling. A year later, I'm way smarter and better equipped to deal with it."

While Wiz doesn't think he will reconcile with the 32-year-old, he does see himself getting married again, but not any time soon.

"I think I will, but it will be later... I feel like I'll probably get married again when I'm in my 50s," he said.
