Morris’ announcement of her bisexuality comes just months after she finalized her divorce from Ryan Hurd, ending their five-year marriage.

In January, Morris and Hurd concluded a three-month court battle by reaching a “written marital dissolution agreement,” according to court documents obtained by The Blast.

The agreement, which followed the terms of their February 2018 prenuptial agreement, detailed the division of their properties and assets.

As part of the settlement, both Morris and Hurd waived their rights to receive alimony or spousal support from each other.

However, the mother-of-one was ordered to pay Hurd $2,100 monthly in child support, based on their respective gross monthly incomes—Morris earning $210,534 and Hurd $41,666.67.

The former lovebirds, who divorced in October, began their connection in 2014 by co-writing Tim McGraw’s hit song “Last Turn Home.”

What started as a professional collaboration in 2014 blossomed into a beautiful love story the following year, captivating the hearts of many.

Morris and Hurd then got engaged in 2017 and tied the knot in an intimate Nashville ceremony in 2018. Throughout much of their marriage, they managed a long-distance relationship, with the “My Church” singer openly discussing their difficulties.

In an interview, Morris spoke about drawing inspiration from Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban’s successful long-distance relationship. In her words:

“I’ve learned so much from Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman. They’ve got the two-week rule.”
