At the time, Kacey even let it slip that she was dealing with a tune entitled “Star-Crossed Lovers,” which included a few of the very same lyrics she published onSaturday Moreover, she stated that would be the style of her approaching album.
In that very same interview, the “Space Cowboy” artist opened about her and Ruston’s separation, discussing that their marital relationship “just simply didn’t work out.”
“It’s nothing more than that,” she explained. “It’s two people who love each other so much, but for so many reasons, it just didn’t work. I mean, seasons change. Our season changed.”
Kacey and Ruston echoed comparable beliefs when they revealed their divorce, sharing in a joint declaration, “We’ve made this painful decision together—a healthy decision that comes after a very long period of trying the best we can…Though we are parting ways in marriage, we will remain true friends for the rest of our lives.”
Although the 2 separated on great terms, Kacey informed Elle publication in May that she was dissatisfied at one point in their marital relationship.
“I felt, in many ways, on top of the world in my career, but in my personal life, I felt like I was dying inside,” she shared at the time. “I was crumbling. I was sad. I felt lonely. I felt broken.”
