Ben echoed the sentiment, sharing in the Amazon Prime doc that the reason behind the split was "the massive amount of scrutiny around our private life."

However, the couple agreed that calling off their first wedding led them each on a self-discovery journey, one that eventually helped them cross paths again when they reconciled in 2021.

Admitting that she was "angry" at Ben for a while, the Grammy winner continued, "But that heartbreak set both of us on a course to figuring ourselves out to being better people."
