Williams was previously married to Chad Gilbert, the guitarist for the band New Found Glory. They got married in 2016, but got a divorce the next year, in 2017.
At the moment, they posted a statement on Instagram that said, “We also feel it’s important to state that we are going to be okay and in fact, we remain close friends who are good in each other’s eyes. That’s something we are deeply thankful for. Even though situations like these can feel defeating. We will continue to encourage and support each other personally and professionally.”

Williams also talked about her mental health problems while she was with Gilbert.
She said, “I had a wedding ring on, despite breaking off the engagement only months before,” she said. “A lot happened within a short time. But then I didn’t eat, I didn’t sleep, I didn’t laugh… for a long time.”
“It helped me realize that I shouldn’t have ever married my ex and that love is not something we can just extract from one other.”
She continued, “Writing opened my heart to healing. I’m alive to both pain and joy now,” added Williams. “I have my old laugh back, as my mom says. The one that takes over my body and sends me out of myself for a few seconds. And only a couple years ago, I had hoped I’d die.”
