Clef seemed to hint that he had "open marriage" with his wife, Marie Claudinette, in a 2007 interview. "The bottom line is that as human beings, we make mistakes. But we all need rocks behind you — a strong woman," he said. "No matter how it goes down, a rock is a rock. If you choose to have an entire existence with someone; there's going to be ups and there's going to be downs. There's no problem. I think that as human beings, there will be mistakes. You grow from the mistakes. If my rock does something, I'm not gonna go crazy, and if I do something, she won't go crazy."
