On March 4th, 2018 Kimberly Perry (of The Band Perry) announced that she has filed for divorce from her husband J.P. Arencibia. This announcement comes nearly 4 years after the two tied the knot.
Kimberly posted: “Yes, sadly it’s true, my marriage has come to an end,” Kimberly wrote on Instagram Sunday evening. “I know that beauty will come from these ashes and, as always, I want to thank you all for your love and support. I’ll be in touch soon.”

This story makes us sad. It’s unclear what the cause of the split was, but it’s looking like they are both moving along with their lives. Since Kimberly made the announcement she has deleted all of her Instagram posts, and has been posting new photos. It looks like she’s wanting to make a fresh start!
It seems a tad dramatic to have tried to delete her past like that. Not sure how to feel about that. One thing we do know is (and please don’t hate us for saying this – because we all know you’re thinking it) that there is going to be some killer songwriting come out of this. The Band Perry have had troubles finding their groove since leaving their record label, so maybe this will give their music a bit of a much needed boost?
Fans of both The Band Perry and of JP Arencibia have been obsessed with their relationship ever since the two got engaged in 2012. At the time, we learned that the former Toronto Blue Jays catcher proposed to Perry at her parents’ home in Tennessee.
They mostly kept their romance private, but we do know that the two met at the Florida Strawberry Festival, where The Band Perry was performing. Arencibia was in attendance and used his connections to get backstage and stalk – I mean meet – Kimberly. From there, the rest was history.
We wish them both nothing but the best. Good luck!
Since you’re here, why don’t you take a little trip down memory lane and take a minute to watch the video for the single that changed their lives: If I Die Young. One of the greatest country songs in the last decade.
