Kelsea Ballerini opened up about what she felt at the time of divorcing Morgan Evans and how she feels now.

After a year of ending her relationship, Kelsea Ballerini has found "peace" in her choice to divorce.

“This time last year, my life felt very out of control. A bit messy,” Ballerini told Nylon in an interview. “I just felt in the weeds in a lot of things.”

After giving serious thought to what she was going to say, the Mountain With a View singer said, “I can truly, from my guts, say I regret literally nothing. I really don’t.”

Ballerini announced her separation from Evans, 38 in August 2022, nearly after five years of marriage. Their divorce was formalized in the November of the same year.

The singer noted on Tuesday that her separation from Evans made “a lot of conservative Karens very upset.”

She remembered being "scared" after seeing comments on social media that implied she hadn't done enough to save her marriage.

“I have spent so much of my life contorting myself to be palatable for everyone. I thought that made me a good woman. I thought that made me a good artist. However, it does not make me a good person,” Ballerini expressed.

“I care way more about being able to sleep at night knowing that I’m showing up for myself and what I believe in and the things that make my heart beat. And I’m not meant for everyone.”

The Half of My Hometown singer stated, "I'm sleeping better than I ever have," but acknowledging that the "people-pleaser" in her still has a "really hard time when there's very loud hate."
