Kelsea Ballerini’s marriage to her now ex-husband Morgan Evans was in trouble longer than she’d care to admit. During a recent taping of the Call Her Daddy podcast, Kelsea shared that she spent many nights sleeping on the couch, including the night before an unspecified CMA Awards. She said, “I remember I went to rehearsal at the arena and texting him and being like, ‘I’ll just see you at the carpet.'” reports that Kelsea also admitted to separations and “years of couples therapy.”

Kelsea took issue with Morgan’s song, “Over For You,” which he released on the heels of their breakup. She said, “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 Call Her Daddy podcast episode featuring Kelsea is out today (Wednesday, February 22nd). Last week, she released a six-song EP called Rolling Up the Welcome Mat which details the demise of her marriage to Morgan.
