The Romanian has had to deal with a divorce from his actress wife and began living a playboy lifestyle but has insisted that he is turning over a new leaf.
"It struck me that my son, who is two, will one day read all the negative headlines about me. It wasn't a nice thought," he said.
"I'm not bothered what people who don't know me think. But I want to be an example to him. So now, it is time to work like crazy on my football at Chelsea."
The Romanian captain, who signed from Italian side Parma for £15 million has vowed to repay Chelsea's faith.
"It's taken a lot of hard, hard work to get to this level, to be playing for the biggest club in the world. I am not going to throw it all away," said Mutu.
Mutu has also held talks with Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho to state his dedication to the club.
"The club is not my sponsor but my employer. I have to give something back to them, I know that.
"Mr Mourinho is a great manager. He calms me. I spoke to him and told him I am desperate to play this season. I am a warrior," explained the 26-year-old.
