Kelsea Ballerini is no longer keeping up with her ex-husband, Morgan Evans.
The “Blindsided” songstress, 29, unfollowed the “Day Drunk” crooner, 37, on Instagram — just days after she and new boyfriend Chase Stokes confirmed via the same app that they’re dating.
Late last week, the “Outer Banks” star, 30, shared a photo of Ballerini hugging him while planting a big kiss on his cheek.
“imy❤️,” he wrote atop the snap, as the country singer is currently on tour. She returned the social media love by re-posting a graphic for the third season of his Netflix show.
The pair first sparked dating rumors in mid-January after attending the National College Football Championship together, where they were photographed holding each other closely.
The “Half of my Hometown” hitmaker cryptically addressed all the buzz surrounding the suspected couple the following week.
Taking to TikTok to show a screenshot of gossip Instagram account Deuxmoi theorizing that her fling with Stokes was just a PR stunt, Ballerini said, “I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know. Stop reading, stop reading, stop looking. But what is happening, guys? What? What? What? Let’s not do this, you know?”
She captioned the video, “I’m about to break up with the internet 5 sure 😂.”
Ballerini and Evans finalized their divorce in November 2022 after she filed to end their nearly five-year marriage that August.
One day before making her relationship with Stokes Instagram-official, the Grammy nominee sat down for a bombshell-filled interview about her “nasty” split from the Australian musician.
Ballerini said she was “livid” when Evans released a single titled “Over for You” in November 2022, in which he described feeling blindsided by her decision to leave him.
“As he’s putting out a song about being blindsided, he’s taking half the house that he didn’t pay for,” she told host Alexandra Cooper. “How was I married to this person for this long and had no idea that that bit of character was tucked within that human being?”
Ballerini also revealed that she slid into Stokes’ DMs in December 2022.
The podcast episode dropped on Spotify shortly after Evans took to social media to respond to his ex-wife’s new EP, “Rolling Up the Welcome Mat,” which was also inspired by their separation.
“It’s really sad for me to see this person, who I spent so much of my life with, and loved with all my heart, saying things that aren’t reality and that leave out what really happened,” Evans penned via Instagram.
A source later told Page Six exclusively that Ballerini allegedly cheated on her then-husband with The Chainsmokers’ Drew Taggart in August 2019 at Lollapalooza.
Ballerini’s reps did not respond to Page Six’s inquiries, while reps for both Taggart and Evans had no comment.
