Chris posted that tweet after reports started suggesting that he and Miranda allegedly had an affair, which broke up her marriage to Blake. Blake reportedly became suspicious after hearing rumors that his wife had cheated with Chris, on of her closest friends, TMZ reported. The pair also has toured together in the past.
Chris’ tweet sounds pretty genuine to us, and don’t forget that he was also a guest at their wedding. According to HollywoodLife.com’s sources, the reason for the couple’s divorce is related to their careers. “The divorce definitely has to do with how their careers changed their attitudes. Miranda really changed as she has become more popular and Blake has stayed the same. They used to be perfect for each other but now they are oil and water,” an insider spilled to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
In case you missed it, the couple announced their split on June 20 with this 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.”
