“Kelsea was very young and naive when she met Morgan, they clicked right away, but their relationship was always an emotional roller-coaster,” an insider revealed. Ballerini was just 24 and Evans was 32 when they tied the knot.

The source also noted the pair had an “intense romance” that often saw “friction, tension and toxicity.”

“She kept it a secret from most in her life,” the insider continued of what was really happening behind the scenes.

The country singer kept her emotions “bottled up for so long,” but the “issues” between the couple were eventually recognized by loved ones.

“Morgan and Kelsea’s main issue was their disagreement about having kids,” the source spilled.

The 29-year-old star “wasn’t ready” to have kids with Evans, while the 38-year-old Australia native “[had] been ready for a long time.”

“They had been having issues, relating to each other and trouble being kind to each other, but the disagreement over kids was the nail in the coffin,” the insider added.

“Kelsea’s songwriting has been her therapy, but she’s also trying to be respectful. Kelsea and Morgan have two very different versions of the story and that’s what’s showing now,” the source said, referring to the tension between the exes.

The blonde babe went on to discuss her past relationship with Evans, explaining: "I'm not married to him anymore and I don't need to care about his feelings anymore. I mean that with all the respect in the world, but his journey is not mine.”

Ballerini and Stokes appear to be getting hot and heavy. Last week, the Outer Banks actor posted a photo of himself and the “Dibs” singer as she kissed him on the cheek. He added the caption, “imy❤️,” meaning “I miss you.”
