The Band Perry's Kimberly Perry's Ex J.P. Arencibia Responds to Cheating Song 'The Good Life'

Kimberly Perry‘s ex J.P. Arencibia is speaking out following the release of The Band Perry‘s new infidelity track “The Good Life.”

The musical group dropped the song, about moving on after dealing with cheating, on Friday (July 12).

“Tonight on the eve of my birthday and of the release of THE GOOD LIFE I have a few things to say,” Kimberly Perry shared on Instagram. “THE GOOD LIFE is a story about the infidelity I experienced. I want you to know that this song was written during a toxic and incredibly difficult time in my life, but I’m singing it to you now with the voice of a woman who has completely regained a strong sense of self, rebuilt her womanhood, and is grateful to have learned so much.”

“The lyrics in this song are visceral and strong, just as the feelings have been,” she continued. “I feel empowered by them. I hope they empower you to know your value, and if you find yourself in an environment where someone makes you feel disrespected and degraded, I want you to know that you deserve so much more. It’s ok that things don’t go as planned and it’s also ok to not have a new plan yet.”

“And for those who who tell lies, who take advantage of others’ trust and dignity – DO BETTER,” she added. “I’m so grateful to be here and to blow out candles celebrating another year in my good life. Thank you for caring about my story and for listening. The song coming out tonight is one I needed to make to remind myself that my life is not defined by one ugly situation, my body is not diminished by one uninterested person, and my self worth is not determined by anyone else’s words or behavior. Neither is yours.”

A rep for J.P. told People, “While matters of our relationship and what led to the demise of our marriage should remain between us, I will say there was no infidelity. It’s a shame that all of this is now being made up to promote an album, I have moved on and hopefully one day she can as well.”
