Poor Miranda Lambert! Her ex Blake Shelton decided to debut his new romance with Gwen Stefani on the night of her triumphant victory at the CMA Awards. HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY report that Miranda couldn’t enjoy her big win because she was so heartbroken.
Talk about bad timing! Just hours after Miranda Lambert, 31, took home the CMA Award for Female Artist of the Year, her ex-husband Blake Shelton made his first official public appearance with new girlfriend Gwen Stefani, 46. In doing so, the 39-year-old singer crushed Miranda’s victory celebrations, as he was spotted hand in hand with his new lady at CMA after parties. HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE details on how it devastated Miranda!
“She won one of the best awards of the night and she couldn’t even enjoy it. She was just holding back tears the whole time,” our source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Indeed, Miranda made her heartbreak pretty clear when she accepted her award, getting a little misty and telling the audience “Man, I really appreciate it. I needed a bright spot this year, so thank you.”
“Miranda doesn’t understand why they had to make things official that night, it should have been her biggest night but all she could think about was Blake being with Gwen” our source continued. So true! It was probably the worst possible night of the year for him to show off his new lady love, when all eyes were on the country music world, especially Miranda! Our insider told us, “It was so insensitive, she was with this guy for almost a decade, and this is how he treats her!”
“She feels like she doesn’t even know who he is anymore, she wonders if she ever did. The only silver lining is she’s getting great material, a lot of great songs will come out of this,” our insider added. So true, since many country songs are about heartbreak, what Blake did to her on her big night will give her plenty of nuggets for future projects! Just look at how many number one hits Taylor Swift has mined after relationship heartache. So while we totally understand why Miranda would be so devastated, we can’t wait to hear what songs she comes out with after this!
