Kacey Musgraves and Ruston Kelly Split: Everything They’ve Said About Their Relationship


The country singer and her singer-songwriter husband, both 31, have called it quits after over two years of marriage, their reps confirmed to PEOPLE on Friday.

“These kinds of announcements are always met with scrutiny and speculation and we want to stop that before it even starts,” their joint statement read. “We believe that we were put into each other’s lives for a divine reason and have both changed each other infinitely for the better. The love we have for each other goes far beyond the relationship we’ve shared as husband and wife. It’s a soul connection that can never be erased.”

“We’ve made this painful decision together — a healthy decision that comes after a very long period of trying the best we can. It simply just didn’t work,” their statement continued. “Though we are parting ways in marriage, we will remain true friends for the rest of our lives. We hold no blame, anger, or contempt for each other and we ask for privacy and positive wishes for us both as we learn how to navigate through this.”

The news came months after Musgraves attended the CMA Awards with pal Gigi Hadid as her date in November. Both the star and Kelly, who tied the knot in Tennessee, have since deleted their 2017 wedding photos from their social media accounts.
