Miranda Lambert took home the ‘Female Vocalist of The Year Award’ at the 2015 CMAs just hours after her ex, Blake Shelton’s, new romance with Gwen Stefani was confirmed. Did Miranda diss Blake during her speech? Find out!
Miranda Lambert, 31, won Female Vocalist Of The Year at the CMA Awards on Nov. 4 in Nashville, Tennessee. The country singer did not specifically call her ex, Blake Shelton, out during her acceptance speech, however, she DID diss him in a discrete yet harsh way!
Miranda was not only wearing a Chris Stapleton shirt (aka Blake’s biggest competition this year) but she even thanked Chris in her speech! “Justin Timberlake, Chris Stapleton…thank you very much…I’m gonna go home and practice,” she said. Before thanking those two singers, Miranda thanked her fans saying, “Thank you….I needed a bright spot this year.” As we know, the blonde beauty has had a rough couple of months since her split from Blake.
Blake and Miranda were the king and queen of country music until they separated in July of 2015. The couple started dating in 2006 and four years later in 2010, they got engaged. One year later in 2011, the couple tied the knot! But sadly, the couple only lasted 4 years as husband and wife.
Since their split, Blake has been living the single life and he’s even dating someone new now — fellow Voice judge Gwen Stefani! “Gwen and Blake are longtime friends who have very recently started dating,” Gwen’s spokesperson, who would not comment further, told Us.
We’ve recently learned that Miranda is not happy about this romance. “Miranda could tell by watching them on the show that they had a certain chemistry,” the source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, “but she never knew it would develop into such a close relationship so fast.”
“[Miranda] actually shocked that Blake has moved on so quickly. How could she not be just a tad bit jealous? Gwen is absolutely gorgeous and Blake appears to be completely smitten with her,” the insider went on.
