Oh no! One of country music’s hottest couples, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, have called it quits after four years of marriage. Read their statement here.
This is so sad. Blake Shelton, 39, and Miranda Lambert, 31, got divorced. Their divorce has reportedly been in the works for quite a while, and it was fully settled on July 20. The country music stars, who are now legally single again, married in 2011.
UPDATE: The couple has now revealed the following statement: “This is not the future we envisioned and it is with heavy heart that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real family, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter.”
This was a couple we really wanted to last forever. Blake and Miranda have ended their 4-year marriage, and they filed divorce documents “a while ago,” TMZ reports. The divorce was filed by Blake in Oklahoma.
Financial arrangements have already been settled since the couple had a prenuptial agreement. Blake will get the ranch in Oklahoma, and she’ll get the family home in Nashville. Miranda has been moving her show animals off the ranch over the last few days.
The two crossed paths when they sang an amazing duet of “You’re the Reason God Made Oklahoma” on CMT 100 Greatest Duets in 2005. Blake’s divorce from his first wife, Kaynette Williams, wasn’t finalized at the time. Blake and Miranda officially started dating in 2006. They married in May 2011 in front of over 500 family and friends. Here’s a timeline of their romance.
Blake and Miranda were one of the couples we always looked forward to seeing at awards shows. We’ll never forget when Blake raved over Miranda after her win at the Country Music Awards in Nov. 2014. They were so cute! But divorce rumors have been surrounding the couple for quite some time. Back in Oct. 2014, Blake slammed reports that he and Miranda were divorcing. However, Miranda notoriously didn’t mention Blake during any of her acceptance speeches for her wins, and fans became concerned.
We are heartbroken to see these two split up. Our thoughts go out to Blake and Miranda during this difficult time.
HollywoodLifers, are you sad Blake and Miranda have split? Did you think they were meant to be? Let us know!
