COUNTRY singer Kacey Musgraves revealed she still “loves” her estranged husband, Ruston Kelly, despite citing “irreconcilable differences” in their divorce filing.
In court papers exclusively obtained by The Sun, Kacey, 31, officially filed for divorce from Ruston, 31, on July 2 after nearly three years of marriage.
She cited “irreconcilable differences” and listed their separation date as July 2.
The Golden Hour singer insisted the exes are amicable, as she wrote in the filing: “The Wife would show unto the Court that although the parties still have love and respect for one another, the parties wish to terminate the marriage and they acknowledge and agree that they are experiencing irreconcilable differences in their marriage.”
She continued that divorcing is “in the best interests of each of them.”
The Follow Your Arrow songstress wrote that the parties “anticipate entering into a Marital Dissolution Agreement which will equitably divide their marital and separate property.”
Kacey asked the court approve their anticipated agreement.
The musicians announced their divorce on Friday in a statement that read: "We've made this painful decision together.
"With heavy but hopeful hearts we wanted to put our own thoughts into the air about what's happening. These kinds of announcements are always met with scrutiny and speculation and we want to stop that before it even starts.”
The statement continued: "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.”
They added that the "healthy decision" came after "a very long period of trying the best we can.”
The statement ended: "It simply just didn’t work. 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.”
Divorce speculation started when Kacey attended the CMA Awards with model Gigi Hadid in November.
The exes also deleted their wedding photos from their Instagram accounts.
Kacey and Ruston met in 2016 at the famous Bluebird Café in Nashville and married in 2017.
Kacey’s 2018 album Golden Hour, which won her four Grammy Awards, was inspired by Ruston.
