Maren Morris shocked everybody – including, apparently, her husband – when she filed for divorce from Ryan Hurd earlier this month after five years of marriage.

The singer recently announced that she was leaving country music, and Hurd, a singer and songwriter himself, had put out a statement on Instagram supporting his wife amidst the criticism that she was receiving, so the divorce seemed to come as a surprise to outsiders.

But according to an article from Life & Style Magazine, the couple had been having problems for awhile – and part of the reason is all of the drama Maren’s caused in the country music industry.

Maren’s never really been afraid to ruffle feathers, speaking out against Jason Aldean’s wife Brittany last year for what Maren called “transphobic” comments, claiming that she didn’t feel safe at the CMA Awards, calling out Morgan Wallen amid his racial slur controversy, and even beefing with Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

She also recently spoke out against Oliver Anthony’s viral hit “Rich Men North of Richmond,” calling the song “problematic.”

So yeah, Maren’s pissed off a few people in Nashville over the years.

And apparently that caused problems in her marriage, because some of those people she’s upset were her husband Ryan Hurd’s co-writers – and all of her comments were beginning to have an effect on Hurd’s career.

According to the article’s inside source:

“All he wanted to do was write music, but some of the people Ryan writes with are people Maren has made mad, and it caused a huge problem between them.”

The source also says that Maren just “wants a break from it all,” which seems ironic considering she’s usually the one inserting herself into the drama in the first place.

Either way, it sounds like Maren speaking out finally upset enough people that it was making her husband’s career harder, which may have led to the split.
