Sources told Page Six in fall that the 40-year-old had checked into the seven-day Hoffman Process, which is said to have denied at the time. The music mogul later admitted on Jay Shetty’s “On Purpose” podcast in June that he did actually go on the retreat.

“My wife and I began to hear all kinds of rumors, like ‘[] has gone crazy.’ But it wasn’t that. It was just feeling like I wasn’t present in my life, and [feeling] like the people around me who loved me, I felt their hurt,” Braun admitted and described himself as a “fixer” but said he “just couldn’t fix things in this moment in time.”

The Hoffman Process describes itself as “a 7-day soul-searching, healing retreat of transformation & development for people who feel stuck in one or more important areas of their life,” with those close to Braun such as Justin Bieber reportedly having attended in the past.

The website says it helps to “make peace with your past, release from negative behaviors, [achieve] emotional healing & forgiveness, discover your authentic self” and to have “improved relationships.”

“Their friendship is the best it’s ever been but they’re taking some time apart to sort things out,” a source told PEOPLE of the split.

“So many couples went through this during the pandemic. They love each other and just need some time apart and will hopefully bounce back for their kids,” a second source added.

As previously reported by OK!, the split was not all that “shocking” to those close to Braun and as they had been “broken up for several months” which was an open secret within the music industry. Sources also claimed that the last straw may have been whispers of a “third party” after he was rumored to be involved with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Erika Jayne, who denied an affair.
