A middle child, he said Parade, knows “how to game the system. “I saw what my two elder brothers would do wrong, and I figured out how to avoid it.” However, that didn’t prevent him from getting into mischief. He reflected on his life, saying, “Of all the kids, I was the most troublesome. I sort of put my mother through hell.”
