Blake Shelton has always been the flirty, party guy, but it turns out Miranda Lambert may have been the one who strayed in their failed marriage. ‘The Voice’ judge reportedly made the decision to file for divorce after learning his wife of four years had allegedly cheated on him…twice!
We’re still so devastated over Blake Shelton, 39, and Miranda Lambert’s, 31, divorce, but if this is true, we can’t blame the “Sangria” singer for calling it quits. Quite surprisingly, it was Miranda who was unfaithful, and her infidelity wasn’t just a one-time thing, according to a new report.
Blake reportedly began to get suspicious after hearing rumors that his wife had cheated with fellow country star, Chris Young, 30, a close friend of Miranda. The pair have toured together in the past. But their alleged affair wasn’t what caused the split — rather, it was another incident with a non-country singer that finally was the final straw and pushed The Voice judge to file divorce papers, TMZ claims.
The exes’ divorce has already been finalized, even though Blake just filed two weeks ago. And it wasn’t just Miranda’s alleged cheating that had her hubby rethinking the relationship, either. “Miranda has changed the more popular she has become,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “The divorce definitely has to do with how their careers changed their attitudes. They used to be perfect for each other, but now they are oil and water.”
Blake and Miranda announced their heartbreaking decision on July 20, with no explanation about went wrong, though. “This is not the future we envisioned and it is with heavy heart that we move forward separately,” they said in a statement. “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.”
The writing has been on the wall for quite some time, though — back in April, Miranda failed to acknowledge her husband while accepting her trophies at the ACM Awards. Plus, these two have been dodging split rumors for years, especially since they met while Blake was still married to his first wife, Kaynette Gern.
But, despite fans’ widespread beliefs that his wild lifestyle would make him stray, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that is definitely not the case. “Blake was loyal, devoted and madly in love with Miranda,” our source explained. “The road took its toll on the relationship. They began to grow apart recently. This is very tough on Blake. She was the love of his life.”
