Elle King took to Instagram to reveal a few surprises for her followers. The "Ex's and Oh's" singer announced that she split from her husband -- who she secretly married in 2016, three weeks after meeting him.

King writes in the somber post, "We secretly got married 3 weeks after we met on 2/14/2016. It was and will forever be, one of the happiest days of my life. This photo was taken today, 5/15/2017. A month after what should have been our big wedding ceremony. My heart is broken. My soul aches. I am lost. He is the greatest love of my life. He is my best friend. As we separate, and attempt to find our footing through life, all I can hope for us is that we both find happiness within ourselves. I love you. You'll always have my heart. You'll always be my first husband."

The photo she referenced features the former couple posing in black and white attire, seemingly coordinating with one another. King continued the post expressing her grief, "Please be respectful of our emotions and our space during this time. Everybody thought I lost my mind and I did. So, be kind."
