Reason behind Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd’s Divorce Revealed
The reason behind Maren Morris’ divorce from Ryan Hurd was revealed by the 33-year-old singer. She filed for divorce after five years of marriage.
Morris announced “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the pair’s split in a doc. Their date of separation matches the date of filing, and the two have a prenup in place.
The musicians met while co-writing the 2014 Tim McGraw hit “Last Turn Home,” sparking a friendship before taking their relationship to the next step.
Maren and Ryan began dating in 2015, with ‘The Every Other’ Memory singer proposing two years later. They tied the knot in Nashville in March 2018.
One year later, Maren gushed over her husband and longtime “creative collaborator” in an exclusive interview.
“We were paired together six years ago to write a song. We didn’t know each other and it just kind of grew from there, so music has always been really intertwined in our love for each other,” Morris said.
The ‘My Church‘ singer continued: “I’ve learned so much from Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman. They’ve got the two-week rule. … They just make it look so normal and it makes me and Ryan feel like this could be normal as well.”
Morris acknowledged at the time that she and her husband did “a pretty good job” of making their relationship a priority despite their busy schedules.
She said: “Especially now that we’re married, it’s a little bit more important to us to see each other,” she explained. “We try to have a good balance.”
The now-estranged couple welcomed their first baby, Hayes, in March 2020. “We really couldn’t have asked for a more magical human to be brought into our lives during this crazy time,” ‘The Bones’ singer gushed on The Bobby Bones Show that August, referring to the Coronavirus pandemic.
“He’s been a good distraction from not being able to tour,” Morris added.
Before calling it quits, the pair collaborated on several songs together, from his 2021 ballad “Chasing After You” to her single “I Can’t Love You Any More.”TV’s First Lois Lane Phyllis Coates Dies of Natural Causes
Irreconcilable Differences Lead to Maren Morris’ Divorce
Irreconcilable differences were announced as Maren Morris’ divorce after five years of marriage.
Ryan was one of Morris’ most vocal supporters during her publicized feud with Jason and Brittany Aldean last year.
The ‘I Could Use A Love Song‘ artist called out Brittany via social media in 2022 for making controversial comments about gender-confirming care for trans youth. Amid the backlash, Ryan was quick to take his then-wife’s side.
Last month, he once again stood up for his wife after Morris hinted she was ready to leave the world of country music for good.
He tweeted at the time: “Scoring quick points by picking on trans kids isn’t something that is brave at all. And I’m proud of Maren for sticking up for them. … Shut up and sing only applies to those who you disagree with.”
Hurd added: “Getting a lot of people telling me our career is over, as if the last time she spoke up about something it disappeared. Honestly, we’re pretty OK over here. Tours are good, got a [son] we love, we’re f—king fine and I promise she isn’t going to shut up now.”
“She deserves to be celebrated, not just tolerated,” The ‘What Are You Drinking‘ singer wrote via Instagram on September 20, sharing a pic of Morris’ album cover.
He continued: “I love the response from people who don’t just love these two songs, they needed them. … Most people would just shut up and keep collecting the paycheck, because the wave of vitriol is real and it’s hard.”
The musician declared that he was “so sick of watching” as Maren got “the s–t kicked out of her” online for her progressive beliefs.
“She deserves a little sunshine for the burden she has carried for every artist and fan that feels the same way. … I can’t wait to make music that follows the same path, whatever that is,” Hurd wrote, concluding, “Love you, MM. Keep on keeping’ on.”
