“I’m also excited to spend more time with those close to me and dear to me, and that includes my daughter Arna first and foremost.”

Last July, The Australian reported that the former couple enjoyed a ’50-50 split of the proceeds’ from Sweat’s $400 million sale.

The former couple, who had been together for eight years, co-founded the Bikini Body Training Company, later renamed Sweat, after meeting in late 2012.

The business partners sold their health and fitness empire to US software giant iFIT Health & Fitness Inc for $400 million, The Courier Mail reported.

In 2020, the Sweat app generated a staggering $99.5 million in revenue, with the majority of sales coming from the US market.
