Country musicians Kelsey Ballerini and Morgan Evans are separately talking about their divorce in 2022, and from the looks of it, their current relationship is far from amicable.
In this week’s edition Call Her Daddy podcastBallerini recalled painful moments leading up to her split from the Australian-born Evans last August.
“There were separations, there were years of couples therapy,” three-time Grammy-nominated host Alex Cooper said, as seen in a teaser released Tuesday. by people. “There were many nights of sleeping on the couch. It was just a relationship that took a long time to work.”
Ballerini, originally from Tennessee, and Evans met as co-hosts of the 2016 CMC Awards in Australia. They were engaged in December and got married a year later Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
In her “Call Her Daddy” chat, Ballerini recalled having to give a united front at the CMA Awards a year after she and Evans spent the previous night in separate rooms.
“The night before the CMA, I slept on the couch,” she said. “I remember I went to a rehearsal in the arena and wrote to him and him: “See you on the carpet.”
In a separate snippet from the podcast posted to Instagram, Ballerini disagreed with the sentiments expressed by Evans in his 2022 ballad.For youwhich describes the end of the relationship.
“Because he’s releasing a song about being blinded, he’s taking half of the house he didn’t pay for,” she said. “How was I married to this person for so long and I had no idea that this part of the character was hidden in this person?”
These days Ballerini is in new relationship with Outer Banks actor Chase Stokes. She is also promoting a new EP.Rolling up the welcome mat”, which was written and recorded after he and Evans went their separate ways. Six songs were described as a reflection of the “chronological movement through the gap”.
Later Tuesday, Evans responded to Ballerini’s claims. with a short note posted on his Instagram account.
“It makes me very sad to see this person, with whom I have spent so much time in my life and whom I loved with all my heart, say things that are not true and overlook what really happened.” He wrote. “She knows I’m not the type of guy to talk about these things in public.”
“If this is something she needs to heal, I hope it helps,” he continued. “All I ask is that if you are on my pages, please don’t be mean. Don’t hurt Kelsey, don’t hurt each other. Life is too short.”
