Kelsea Ballerini and Morgan Evans are getting divorced after almost five years of marriage. Kelsea broke the news via an Instagram story letter to fans yesterday (Monday, August 29th), writing in part, “This deeply difficult decision is the result of a journey of love, growth, and effort that ultimately has come to an end. It's hard to find the words here…but I feel extremely grateful for the years of marriage to Morgan and hopeful for the next seasons. With very active schedules coming up, please be mindful that we are both fragile, actively healing, and showing up the best we can.”
Yesterday afternoon, Morgan issued a statement via Instagram story writing, “I am very sad to confirm that after 5 years of marriage, Kelsea and I are parting ways. I wish it were otherwise but sadly it is not.”
People.com reports that Kelsea offically filed for divorce on Friday (August 26th).
A source told the publication, “They've been working on their marriage for a very long time. Prior to this they had separated privately once before and have been in therapy for several years. They gave it their best go but unfortunately arrived at the decision to formally separate.”
Kelsea is getting ready to release her new album, interestingly titled Subject To Change, on September 23rd.
