Like every other relationship, their relationship was also not easy, but after working on it when things still didn’t work out for them, they decided to go their separate ways.
How It All Started?
It all started when both Kelsea and Morgan were asked to co-host Australia’s Country Music Channel Awards. They met for the first time in 2016 at the awards ceremony, and they hit it off immediately.
They started their romantic relationship after kissing at the awards party the same night. In one of her interviews, Kelsea mentioned how Morgan asked if he could kiss her in a proper gentlemanly way. She said yes, and she added further, remembering their first intimate moment.
Within a year of dating, Morgan proposed Ballerine in 2016 on Christmas. He went on his one knee in the kitchen when she was making pancakes. On that day, they together took a step ahead by getting engaged. Kelsea jokingly accused Evans of burning the pancakes while proposing.
On December 2nd, 2017, they tied the knot. They had a tequila theme wedding on the beach in Cabo-San Lucas, a Mexican city. They choose this theme to remember the night when they first met when they both bonded over a shot of tequila.
Their Public Appearances
The couple didn’t leave a single chance to show their affection towards each other in public. Kelsea’s one of the most successful albums, Kelsea, is composed of their moments. Both of them also collaborated on ‘dance with me,’ which was another success of Evans.
In one of the interviews, Kelsea said that earlier she was against the idea of them working together due to the respect they have for each other but later enjoyed the process of working together.
The couple was also spotted together at various functions. They were seen together in coordinated white clothes in CMT awards. They were also seen embracing the stage of ACM awards in Saint LLaurent’sblack matching clothes.
On various occasions, the couple shared their moments with fans. “n our third year of marriage quarantined … and we got better at Mario Kart, communicating, making dinner, and being best friends,” wrote Kelsea on her Instagram account, wishing Evans a happy anniversary.
The duo shared a snap from their trip to Tennessee, which they made to celebrate they are getting back together after they were separated for a while due to some differences.
Even after 5 years of togetherness, when things were not working for them, they decided to go their separate ways and filed for divorce.
The American pop singer filed for divorce on 26th august 2022 and submitted the documents to the court on the same date. The former told her fans about this on 29th august via Instagram. She wrote about their journey, which was full of love and warmth. She also mentioned how much they have grown because of their relationship, which has come to an end. Kelsea also called their decision to take a divorce a difficult decision.
Evans also confirmed their divorce later in the day by updating his Instagram story. He also confirmed that their five years of marriage had come to an end. He also expressed how he wished for things to work out in their way.
Later in one of his interviews, Evans described how his single “ver for you is based on his personal life and thanked his fans for all the support they showed him through various means.
Their divorce was settled after 2 months of its filing. They signed the dissolution agreement in October. Going through all this legal stuff has taken a toll on Kelsea, and she started devoting all her time to writing songs and has decided to go for a personal growth journey.
