Kelsea Ballerini Opens Up About Demise Of Marriage

Kelsea Ballerini was a recent guest on the iHeart podcast Tell Me About It with Jade Iovine where she opened up about why she divorced fellow artist Morgan Evans earlier this year after five years of marriage. She said, “For a long time, I was like, ‘Oh this is just… The glitter wears off. That’s what happens.’ And then you get into a phase where you wait for it to come back. And then sometimes it doesn’t.”

Kelsea added, “At the end of the day, it is such a disservice and a dishonoring of yourself if you know something is not right and you stay. (Shame) is the one thing that I just refuse to feel . . . Judge me for it, fine, that’s on you.”

Kelsea recently moved into what she called her “dream house” but she hasn’t been staying by herself. She explained, “Whether it was my mom or my dad or my friends, I’ve had my people really rally for me and I’m not ready to be alone yet, and I don’t think that I’m avoiding anything, ’cause I’m definitely in my feels, cause I really want to heal properly… But yeah, I don’t think that’s what I need right now.” Kelsea also said that a longtime friend moved into the house with her.

Kelsea and Morgan’s divorce was finalized on November 15th.
