Kelsea described her divorce conversation with Morgan as “beautiful.” She remembered them “crying and hugging” and agreeing to go through the divorce “properly,” without becoming “nasty,” especially since they were in the public eye. However, just a few weeks later, Morgan released his song “Over For You,” which alluded to his feelings of being caught off guard by Kelsea’s decision to file papers. “I was furious,” Kelsea admitted. “I thought I had a good handle on my grief journey until that song came out. “I was furious.”
Kelsea was further aggravated when Morgan’s lawyers requested that he receive half of the couple’s home in the divorce. “One thing he was so adamant about in the beginning was, ‘I don’t want people thinking I’m using you or riding coattails,’ and I never felt that way,” Kelsea said. “To my core, I have to believe that this man was purely in love with me, not just artist me. But then we divorced, and who you marry is not necessarily who you divorce. He’s taking half of the house he didn’t pay for while releasing a song about being blindsided.” Kelsea clarified that she and Morgan had a prenuptial agreement.
Regardless of her feelings for her ex, Kelsea is accepting responsibility for her part in the marriage’s demise. “I don’t blame him for everything,” she admitted. “I wasn’t perfect, he wasn’t perfect, and it wasn’t perfect. There were definitely times when I looked back and thought… I should’ve done things differently, or I might’ve ended up here. That was definitely something I ended up sharing with him during the unravelling. I just said, ‘I need to own the last few years. I checked out a long time ago and needed to let you know.”
