Say it isn’t so! The king and queen of country, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, have filled for divorce after four years of marriage! Instead of crying, let’s take a look back at their relationship in pics.
Blake Shelton, 39, and Miranda Lambert, 31, started their epic love story back in 2005 where they met during CMT’s 100 Greatest Duets concert. We are so sad that now, 10 years later, we are learning that the #goal worthy couple has already reportedly filled for divorce and is expected to be officially separated soon. To honor their decade long romance, were breaking down all of their love milestones and most adorable pics — check it all out below.
Like we said, the couple met in 2005 when they paired up to sing “You’re the Reason God Made Oklahoma” together during the CMT 100 Greatest Duets concert but at the time, Blake was actually married to Kaynette Williams. Blake later told VHI, “Looking back on that, I was falling in love with her right there onstage” — aww!!
It wasn’t until 2006 that Blake and Miranda started officially dating after Blake’s divorce was finalized. The two dated for 4 years until in 2010, Blake got down on one knee and asked his lady to be his wife! It was a year later in 2011 that they said their ‘I Do’s’ in Texas in front of 550 family members.
In 2013, rumors that Blake had cheated on Miranda started swirling, but they were obviously denied. At the time, he told People Magazine that he and Miranda are going strong and they never go more than two weeks without seeing each other. “I got a wife now. I say no to the things that might not matter as much,” he said.
Cut to 2 years later, Blake and Miranda have filled for divorce. They released this statement on July 20:
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.
