Morgan Evans and Kelsea Ballerini have decided to end their relationship.
After nearly five years of marriage, the “Heartfirst” singer filed for divorce on Friday, as confirmed to Page Six.

She continued, “I wanted you to hear from me directly that I am going through a divorce,” even though she noted that the fact that she had filed “is now public information.”
The “very difficult decision,” Ballerini continued, “is the culmination of a journey of love, growth, and effort that eventually has come to an end.”
“I am grateful for the many years of marriage to Morgan and eager for the next seasons,” the “Half of My Hometown” singer said, adding that she was struggling to find the right words.

To sum up, she asked for understanding, saying, “With very active schedules coming up, please be mindful that we are both vulnerable, actively recovering, and showing up the best we can.”
Evans, for his part, issued a statement not long after, writing on Instagram Story, “I am extremely sad to confirm that after almost 5 years of marriage, Kelsea and I are parting ways.”
Sorry to say, “I wish it were otherwise, but it is not.”
The 37-year-old “Day Drunk” singer and the 24-year-old Ballerini got engaged in December 2016 and tied the knot in December 2017.
She revealed that he proposed to her in the kitchen in December 2016 while she was “burning pancakes,” as she wrote on Instagram.
The co-host of the 2021 CMT Music Awards went on, “Loving him has been the greatest gift of my life.” …and I get to keep doing it forever. #HECALLEDDIBS.”
At the time, Morgan also shared the same photo with the caption, “When you know, you know… she’s perfect. #ultimatedibs.”
Ballerini told People three years after her wedding that she “swore” she would never get married since her parent’s divorce was “super-messy and incredibly drawn-out.”
The Grammy winner said that her marriage was an “effort” that was “worth her time,” including the couple’s decision to participate in couples therapy.
