Kelsea Ballerini Files for Divorce From Morgan Evans: “Deeply Difficult Decision”

Kelsea Ballerini and Morgan Evans are calling it quits.

The “Heartfirst” singer filed for divorce from Evans after almost five years of marriage.

Ballerini shared a message with fans on Monday morning, writing on her Instagram story, “Friends, I’ve always tried my best to share my life with you in a real and vulnerable way, while also protecting layers of my personal life as they unfold. This is now public record so I wanted you to hear from me directly that I am going through a divorce.

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.”
