There might be more to the story about Kelsea Ballerini and Morgan Evans’ split!
As you’ll recall, the 29-year-old country singer filed for divorce from the 37-year-old in August 2022 after nearly five years of marriage. According to Kelsea on the Call Her Daddy podcast, they wanted to remain amicable amid the divorce process. However, things soon became “nasty” between them. In fact, they’ve recently started a war of words (and songs). Most recently, Morgan put the country singer on blast just hours after the teaser for the interview dropped, saying on Instagram:
“It’s really sad for me to see this person, who I spent so much of my life with, and loved with all my heart, saying things that aren’t reality and that leave out what really happened. She knows I’m not the type of guy to speak on those things publicly. If this is what she needs to heal, I hope it helps.”
What did he mean by “leave out what really happened?” Of course, the Australian-born artist didn’t specify, but sources have come out to shed some more light on those details! And it’s not good, Perezcious readers…
According to Page Six on Wednesday, Kelsea allegedly cheated on Morgan during their marriage with The Chainsmokers member Drew Taggart! After working on their 2018 track This Feeling together, an insider claimed that the songstress hooked up with Drew at Lollapalooza in August of 2019. She didn’t own up to the alleged affair with the 33-year-old singer until 2021.
A source close to Drew, who has been seeing Selena Gomez, insisted he was single when he was involved with Kelsea. Apparently, her infidelity along with the other issues they were having led the Miss Me More artist to breakup with Morgan last year. The divorce decision ended up “blindsiding” the Over For You musician. Wow…
Innerestingly enough, the Penthouse artist recalled on the Call Her Daddy podcast sleeping on the couch the night before CMA Awards one year following a massive fight– though she did not specify which show it was:
“I slept on the couch the night before the CMAs. And I remember I went to rehearsal at the arena and texting him and him being like, ‘I’ll just see you at the carpet.’”
But her song Blindsided included a lyric about sleeping on the couch in 2019 before a “big show,” and she “sang about how it’s OK to cry.” These clues seem to point to the fact that she was referencing the CMA Awards in 2019, as she performed Homecoming Queen that evening, which features the line “even the homecoming queen cries.” Here’s where things get more interesting. The CMA Awards in 2019 happened in August – just weeks after Lollapalooza and the alleged affair happened.
Of course, Kelsea did not open up on the Call Her Daddy podcast about what specifically led to their fight – but could their argument have been about whatever allegedly happened with Drew? Did Morgan have a feeling she stepped out on him at the time? Or was this alleged “big fight” about something else entirely?
Neither Morgan, Drew, nor Kelsea have addressed the cheating rumors yet. What do YOU think about the messy situation? Drop your reactions in the comments below.
