    Then, earlier this month, Schafer confirmed that he was dating the six-time Grammy Award–winning artist when he shared a sweet picture of them together on Instagram.

    “Here’s to you looking to your right when you stepped into F***.” he wrote. “Here’s to you writing me back. Here’s to your jawline that chaps my lips and your hair I can’t keep my hands out of.”

    “Here’s to your aesthetic and your art being a close second to your heart,” Schafer continued. “Here’s to you making it through thirty-two and here’s to you making history in thirty-three. It’s been so damn pretty falling for you, Kacey. 🤍”

    Kacey was previously in a relationship with estranged husband Ruston Kelly. But after nearly three years of marriage, she filed for divorce from the singer-songwriter in 2020.
