I had someone give me advice many years ago when it comes to passing judgement, good or bad, on other people.  No matter how “close” you are to them always remember this:  you may THINK you know, but you DON’T know.  This is especially true when it comes to marriages.  You can have a couple that looks to the world to be the model of perfection; however, the truth is far from it.  Case in point:  Kelsea Ballerini and Morgan Evans.  To the world they look like a storybook couple, right?   Now, I’m not saying I know either person.  However, as a celebrity/country music couple, their union was a very public thing.  And its dissolution is becoming even more public and messy.

Each has released some great music dealing with the breakup.  My fave is this heartbreaking song from Morgan Evans.

Although the end of their marriage seemed amazingly sudden to you and me, come to find out there had been problems with their union almost from the start.  Kelsea recently told the “Call Her Daddy” podcast that there was a major disconnection in their relationship, and they spent a great deal of time in therapy.  And now, there’s a report from Page Six that Kelsea actually had an affair with a Grammy Award winning artist back in 2019.

The Chainsmokers’ Drew Taggart and Kelsea reportedly hooked up at Lollapalooza in the summer of that year.  She had collaborated with the EDM group on the song, “The Feeling.”  The picture above is of the two performing at the CMA Festival that summer.

Reportedly, 2 years later, Kelsea told Morgan she’d been unfaithful.  No doubt this was a devasting revelation.  Not sure where this is all going, or where it will end, but this storybook, fantasy relationship appears to have been more of a nightmare, for both Kelsea Ballerini and Morgan Evans.

Morgan Evans Tweets Rebuttal Towards Ex-Wife Kelsea Ballerini

Kelsea Ballerini has openly discussed the breakup of her marriage with Morgan Evans in the press. Recently she spoke to Alex Cooper on the Call Her Daddy podcast, saying, “There were separations, there was years of couples therapy. There was like, many a night of sleeping on the couch. I don’t think it was the first night. But it was a night where I was like, ‘This is not what I want.'”

She continued, “I slept on the couch the night before the CMAs. I remember I went to rehearsal at the arena and texted him. ‘I’ll just see you at the carpet.'”

After nearly five years of marriage, the “Half Of My Hometown” singer filed for divorce in August of 2022. She was only 23 years old when she got engaged; Morgan Evans is roughly eight years older.

Ballerini went into detail about the divorce proceedings. She isn’t happy about  how things are going. “As he’s putting out a song about being blindsided, he’s taking half the house that he didn’t pay for. How was I married to this person for this long and I had no idea that that bit of character was tucked within that human being?”

The two have obviously had their differences, as is the case in any divorce. But following Kelsea’s interview on Call Her Daddy, along with her short film, Morgan Evans spoke out. You can see his thoughts below.

    It’s uncanny (and obvious) that this is all about Morgan Evansthat even the actor looks like him!!

    He noted that he loved Ballerini “with all my heart,” but feels that she hasn’t told the whole story. But he requested that people don’t be mean to her.

    “Couldn’t be more proud”

  • Kelsea's last post with him was also in June of 2022
