It’s been a little over two months since country star Kacey Musgraves and singer-songwriter Ruston Kelly, both 32, pulled the plug on their almost three-year marriage. But it seems the estranged spouses are giving their romance another shot.
"They’ve been talking on the phone and texting, and one thing’s led to another. Now they’re telling friends they want to make another go of it," shares a source, noting that Musgraves takes a lot of the blame for the way things ended. "She was on the road all the time and put her career first. Ruston felt totally left out.”
Thankfully time’s proven to be a great healer in terms of forgiveness. "Ruston’s been acting so sweet lately and it’s warmed Kacey’s heart that he holds no grudges," continues the source. "They’re both excited for what the future has in store."
As OK! previously reported, Musgraves recently reached an agreement with Kelly regarding their divorce. According to court documents, when their house eventually goes on the market, the songstress will walk away with 84.4% of the sale price; Kelly will get the remainder.
As for the rest of their shared belongings, the couple indicated to the courts that the prenuptial agreement they set up when getting married is still valid — meaning everything else will be divided according to that document.
Still, the pair has been vocal about trying to make their marriage work. Last month, the ‘Slow Burn’ singer tweeted, "It is what it is," to which her ex replied: "It doesn’t have to be."
In July, the couple announced that they were splitting. "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. Though we are parting ways in marriage, we will remain true friends for the rest of our lives," they said in a joint statement.
The two were quick to highlight that they are not blaming anyone for the failure to reconcile. "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 pair wrote in their announcement.
