Country star Kelsea Ballerini filed for divorce last week from singer-songwriter husband Morgan Evans, according to court records.
The “Miss Me More” pop-country artist described the decision as “deeply difficult” in a statement posted Monday to Instagram.
“[It’s] a result of a journey of love, growth and effort that ultimately has come to an end,” the 28-year-old Ballerini wrote in her social media post.
Davidson County court records confirmed Ballerini filed for divorce last Friday. A full court complaint was not available as of early Monday.
Ballerini said she’s grateful for nearly five years of marriage to Evans, a 37-year-old major-label country artist from Australia. According to the celebrity news site People, Ballerini and Evans met in 2016 at an awards show in Australiaople. The couple wed in late 2017 on a beach in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
“With very active schedules coming up, please be mindful that we are both fragile, actively healing and showing up the best we can,” Ballerini said.
Dring the marriage, Ballerini rose in the Music Row ranks to become an ACM and CMA Award-winning hitmaker known for songs “Half of My Hometown,” “Hole In the Bottle,” and “Legends.” The Knoxville native releases her next album, “Subject to Change,” on Sept. 23.
