Kill ’em with kindness! Knowing he may face an awkward encounter with ex Miranda Lambert at the CMTs, Blake Shelton has already put a friendly plan of action in place. We’ve EXCLUSIVELY learned that he’s going to greet her ‘with a smile.’
Three cheers for friendly exes! Blake Shelton, 40, has figured out the perfect plan when it comes to seeing ex-wife Miranda Lambert, 33, at the CMTs tonight. Instead of enduring an awkward red carpet reunion, he’s going to be the perfect gentleman and extend an olive branch. “The hurt is gone,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Blake has moved on and he knows that Miranda has as well. Is he looking to B-line towards Miranda at the CMTs? Absolutely not, but he also knows this isn’t high school. He expects and hopes that they can both be adults and greet each other with a smile and a hello.”
Because both country music icons are nominated for best Video Of The Year, there’s an extremely high chance that they’ll come in close quarters. The exes, who divorced in 2015 after four years of marriage, haven’t had an uncomfortable run-in with each other since the split! So could tonight be the night? If that happens, Blake’s number one priority to make Miranda feel as calm and secure as possible. “He doesn’t want to make her feel uncomfortable and he certainly won’t when he eventually bumps into her either tonight or down the line,” the source continues. “It’s just life and Blake is OK if she enters it even for a minute. He’s done making a big deal about it.”
And besides, both singers are in a much happier place now anyway! So why hold on to resentment? The blonde bombshell is reportedly engaged to Anderson East, who popped the question right after her big ACMs win, according to an April 12 OK! Magazine report. Blake is also loving life with girlfriend Gwen Stefani and her three adorable boys. He’s figured out how to be a great father figure to Zuma, Apollo, and Kingston without crossing over into Gavin Rossdale‘s territory. Peace on Earth, people!
