KACEY Musgraves praised her estranged husband Ruston Kelly’s new song on Twitter two weeks after they announced their “painful” divorce.
The 31-year-old Rainbow singer said she still “loves and respects” the fellow musician in court paper filings obtained by The Sun.
Kacey retweeted 31-year-old Ruston’s emotional latest single titled Pressure.
The South Carolina native sings on the track: “I wish I could take it, use it and shape it.
“Maybe I’ll collapse. I hate to be dramatic, but I think these days, I might crack.”
He continues: “Here’s a thought. Before it fades. Courage taught. That cowards cave.
“Under all the pressure. But it can’t last forever. All the pressure.”
In court papers exclusively obtained by The Sun, Kacey, 31, officially filed for divorce from Ruston, 31, on July 2 after nearly three years of marriage.
She cited “irreconcilable differences” and listed their separation date as July 2.
The Golden Hour singer insisted the exes are amicable, as she wrote in the filing: “The Wife would show unto the Court that although the parties still have love and respect for one another, the parties wish to terminate the marriage and they acknowledge and agree that they are experiencing irreconcilable differences in their marriage.”
She continued that divorcing is “in the best interests of each of them.”
The country star wrote that the parties “anticipate entering into a Marital Dissolution Agreement which will equitably divide their marital and separate property.”
Kacey asked the court approve their anticipated agreement.
The musicians announced their divorce on Friday in a statement that read: “We’ve made this painful decision together.
“With heavy but hopeful hearts we wanted to put our own thoughts into the air about what’s happening. These kinds of announcements are always met with scrutiny and speculation and we want to stop that before it even starts.”
The statement continued: “We believe that we were put into each other’s lives for a divine reason and have both changed each other infinitely for the better. The love we have for each other goes far beyond the relationship we’ve shared as husband and wife. It’s a soul connection that can never be erased.”
They added that the “healthy decision” came after “a very long period of trying the best we can.”
The statement ended: “It simply just didn’t work. Though we are parting ways in marriage, we will remain true friends for the rest of our lives. 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.”
Divorce speculation started when Kacey attended the CMA Awards with model Gigi Hadid in November.
