The country music world was tossed upside down yesterday with the news that Blake Shelton had filed for divorce from his wife of 4 years, Miranda Lambert. The two have been considered country royalty and have been fighting off rumors in their marriage for years now.
What I am sure the couple hoped to be a quiet and what they call amicable split has turned into a mud slinging rumor over night. According to TMZ.com Blake filed for divorce because he believed Miranda had been unfaithful to him on more than one occasion. TMZ also says their source confirmed that Miranda had cheated on Blake with her former tour mate and country music chart topper Chris Young!
Blake Shelton filed for divorce because he believed Miranda Lambert was unfaithful, not once but twice … TMZ has learned. Multiple sources familiar with the situation tell us … Blake has suspected Miranda was living out a country cheating song for months. We’re told Blake heard rumors Miranda had hooked up with country singer Chris Young and thought it was believable enough to make him suspicious of her. Young opened for Miranda a few years ago, and the 2 were spotted out publicly from time to time. But our sources say Chris was NOT the catalyst for the divorce. It was another guy, who is not a country singer. Our sources say the reason Blake filed 2 weeks ago was because he received certain information about Miranda and the other guy that elevated things in Blake’s head from rumor to fact. Although the couple released a statement saying the divorce is amicable, we’re told Blake has been very upset in the last few weeks and told her she had to get her animals off his Oklahoma ranch by Monday.
Chris took his Facebook account this afternoon to address and totally deny the rumors saying:
I don’t normally address gossip but in this case I will. My name has been mentioned as a contributing factor in Blake and Miranda’s divorce. That is totally FALSE. They are both my friends and I would not betray that friendship. Just wanted to clear that up. Love you guys – CY
