Even in heartbreak, Jewel is trusting her “Intuition.”

The singer-songwriter revealed in a devastating blog post that she and her husband, Ty Murray, have mutually chosen to divorce after 16 years together.

“Ty and I have always tried to live the most authentic life possible, and we wanted our separation as husband and wife to be nothing less loving than the way we came together,” she explained.

Jewel later added, “Instead we have chosen the much more difficult task of undoing ourselves stitch by stitch, and releasing each other with love so that we may take on our new form: dear friends and devoted co-parents of our beloved son Kase.”

She also explores the nature of her fame and how she’s been in the public eye since she was 19, choosing not to censor herself for her image.

Ever the sweetheart, the “Standing Still” singer ended the post by extending a hand to “anyone reading this who may be struggling with similar issues in their own lives.”
