Jason and Amanda have overcome issues in their relationship in the past, specifically while working on his 2020 album, Reunions. “At one point, I said, ‘It’d be easier if somebody had cheated.’ Then we could say, ‘You did this,’ or ‘I did this,’ and ‘Somebody needs to be real sorry,’” he told the New York Times in May 2020, admitting he pushed her away during that time. “But it was more like, ‘We don’t know each other right now. We’re not able to speak the same language.’”
