Country singer Kacey Musgraves’ relationship with boyfriend Cole Schafer has come to an end, according to Page Six. They were the first to report that the couple called it quits on their romance after two years together.
It also appears that Kacey and Cole have stopped following each other on Instagram, seemingly confirming that they are no longer in each others’ lives. The 35-year-old singer was first spotted with Cole, who is 6 years younger than her, in June 2021, as reported by PEOPLE.
The news emerged around a year after Kacey announced her divorce from singer-songwriter Ruston Kelly. Just a few days after their first public outing, Kacey and Cole officially debuted their relationship on social media.
Kacey told The New York Times that they first met after locking eyes in a crowded restaurant. She told the outlet that she loved that Cole didn’t know who she was. Over the next two years, Kacey would often gush about her poet boyfriend online.
Kacey Unfollowed Cole On Instagram
She posted a particularly sweet birthday message to Cole in January, in which she called him the brightest flame in the world. She went on to say that she couldn’t wait to see what the next year would bring.
However, it first seemed like things were not the same between Kacey and Cole about a month ago. Kacey had posted so much about Cole throughout their relationship, so when fans noticed that she unfollowed Cole on Instagram, they began speculating about a breakup.
Page Six also reported that they had been told that Kacey had started posting cryptic messages on her Instagram Stories. However, Kacey has apparently not completely removed Cole’s presence from her life. Although she has unfollowed him, she has not deleted photos of Cole from her feed.
Likewise, Cole himself has not removed Kacey from his Instagram posts. Some fans responded to the Page Six story by mocking Cole’s occupation. The poet, who goes by the pen name January Black, was even accused of using Kacey for her money.
Both Kacey and Cole were asked for comments by media outlets, but have so far chosen not to respond.
Kacey Went Through a Public Divorce In the Past
When the Golden Hour singer parted ways with her ex-husband, Ruston, they were quick to address the situation publicly. They met at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville in 2016 before marrying the following year and getting divorced in July 2020. In a joint public statement, they said that they had made the painful decision to part together.
They added that it was a healthy decision after a very long period of trying the best they could.
