Morgan Evans recently criticized ex-wife Kelsea Ballerini for allegedly not telling the whole truth about their recently finalized divorce. The singer said that although he is not a public figure, he had to deal with it and asked fans not to be mean to Ballerini.
Evans’ statement came shortly after Ballerini released the trailer for a new podcast episode in which she talked about the divorce. She also recently released an EP of emotional songs about their marriage, titled “Rolling Up the Welcome Mat.”
Ballerini filed for divorce last August, and the former couple settled about two months later. While Evans has kept a low profile since their split, Ballerini has been romantically linked to actor Chase Stokes.
Morgan Evans criticizes Kelsea Ballerini for her comments about their marriage
On Tuesday, Chase Evans took to Instagram to address the comments made by ex-wife Kelsea Ballerini about their marriage and divorce. He released the statement before Ballerini released her narrative segment on Call her dad podcast.
Evans’ statement read: “It really saddens me to see this person, who I spent so much of my life with and loved with all my heart, say things that are not true and that leave out what really happened. She knows that I’m not the kind of guy to talk about these things in public. If this is what she needs to heal, I hope it helps.”
The country singer ended the statement by asking fans on his social media not to be mean. Evans wrote, “All I ask is if you’re on my side, please don’t be mean. Don’t be mean to Kelsea, don’t be mean to each other. Life is too short.”
Kelsea Ballerini opened up about her divorce
The singer’s statement came shortly after Ballerini released the trailer for her podcast appearance Call her dad, where she shared the events that led to their “nasty” divorce. The 29-year-old revealed she was already “sleeping on the sofa” when she filed for divorce and was struggling alone.
She said per Page six, “I was just tired of showing up like that all the time and not feeling like I was seen or matched.” Ballerini also recently released an EP of emotional songs about their failed marriage titled “Rolling Up the Welcome Mat.” In her recent interview, she criticized Evans for singing about their breakup in a new song.
They finalized their divorce after two months
According to page six, Ballerini filed for divorce from Evans in August 2022 after being married for nearly five years. Two months later, the former couple reached a final settlement in the divorce proceedings. According to court documents obtained by the news agency, the agreement was reached on 24 October and they signed on 3 November.
According to the lawsuit, Evans and Ballerini already had a prenuptial agreement, which helped them decide to divide their joint assets, including their Nashville home. The house has now been vacated and put on the market and the proceeds will be split in half between the former couple.
Kelsea Ballerini has been romantically linked to Chase Stokes
Since the news of their divorce, Evans has kept a low profile and has not been linked to any woman. On the other hand, Ballerini has been at the center of relationship rumors with “Outer Banks” actor Chase Stokes.
The rumors started sometime last month after Stokes did a photo dump on his Instagram, including pictures of him and Ballerini. The pictures showed the rumored couple cuddling up at a football match. They were later seen hugging and sharing kisses at a terminal at Los Angeles airport.
Although both Stokes and Ballerini have refused to talk about the relationship rumours, the ‘Roses’ singer seems to have confirmed that they were an item during her Call her dad podcast appearance. Ballerini revealed in the video that she is no longer single but kept mum about the identity of her new beau.
