Blake Shelton is finally opening up about the details of his split with ex-wife Miranda Lambert, and it turns out that it was lightning quick. Breaking up is hard to do, but it least the country couple didn’t have to suffer from drawn-out devastation.
Blake Shelton, 39, spoke to the Bobby Bones Show on Wednesday, September 23, and shared for the first time what happened in his divorce with Miranda Lambert, 31. After four years of marriage, their union was over in just 10 days, according to Blake! That’s one way to beat the rumor mill!
“In Oklahoma, it happens so fast,” Shelton, 39, told the Bobby Bones Show. “Like, Miranda and I didn’t have any kids, and we had a prenuptial agreement, whatever we had. Once we filed for divorce, it was over in, like, I think it was like a nine or 10-day waiting period until it’s over.” You can listen to the full interview here!
Wow. To think that you’ve been married for years, and you can get such a quick end to the whole thing! For Blake and Miranda, keeping things speedy was great for both of the country stars; it meant that they wouldn’t get plagued by rumors as soon as the word got out. “We knew if rumblings and rumors started coming out, they would just be that,” Blake said, according to US Weekly. “By the time anybody knew anything, it was over…It was done.”
Blake shared that although he and Miranda were mutually “devastated” and “heartbroken” over the dissolution of their marriage, things are still good between the two, especially because they’ve had to both fight against naysayers on social media. “Our whole thing was, we are going to be cool about this, it is what it is. We’re buddies.”
However, everything hasn’t been so hunky dory post-divorce. Splitting from your spouse is really upsetting! He told the radio show that he’s lost a lot of weight because of the “stress of the divorce,” calling the whole ordeal “the divorce diet.” “You stay as busy as you can to keep your mind off everything,” Blake said. Oh Blake, please take care of yourself!
