In Jessica's 2020 memoir, she explained, "In August [2012], my mother discovered that my father had betrayed their marriage, just as she and I thought things were turning around for them.”

“She had just told me what a nice time they had together on their anniversary, and she thought maybe they had turned a corner," the "With You" vocalist recalled. "I thought so, too. When she confronted him, my dad began calling me, and I would not pick up.”
