Hmm…it looks like Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert might still have a little connection we weren’t aware about! She recently put her boutique in Oklahoma on the market — and her ex is the one who bought the property. Kind of weird, no?!
They’ve been officially divorced for nearly a year, but there’s still a special connection between Blake Shelton, 39, and Miranda Lambert, 32. But interestingly, the “Came Here To Forget” singer just re-forged this bond…because he bought a piece of property from Miranda in Oklahoma. Is his new girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, 46, totally pissed?!
Okay, here’s the deal: Miranda opened her Pink Pistol boutique near her and Blake’s Oklahoma home three years ago, but now that she’s spending her time in her home state of Texas, she’s decided to close the location. That’s where her ex comes in — he bought the property, likely for his own business purposes.
“As a resident of Tishomingo, I am very sorry that the Pink Pistol has decided to move its operations out of the area,” he said in a statement. “We all as a community appreciate everything it has done for our town. As for the actual properties left behind…I was offered the opportunity to buy them and I have a plan brewing.”
So, it doesn’t even seem like Miranda and Blake had to deal with one another directly as this deal went down. Considering Gwen is always so proud of her man’s successes, him taking another venture doesn’t seem like something she’d get too angry about, even if it does kind of involve his ex.
As for the 32-year-old, she’s planning to re-open the Pink Pistol in her Texas hometown, Lindale, this August. “It feels full circle to have everything under one ‘roof’ basically where it all began in my hometown of Lindale,” she admitted. “I want to send a heartfelt thank you to all the employees who worked hard to help me bring the store in Tishomingo to life, as well as the patrons who came to experience the Pink Pistol and supported the store. Sometimes you need to close a chapter to build on a new beginning or go back home.”
It definitely seems like Miranda is doing anything she can to put her split from the 39-year-old behind her. She’s moved on, too, with singer Anderson East, 27, and will be keeping busy on tour this summer. A fresh start, indeed!
What do you think of Blake buying Miranda’s property, HollywoodLifers? Is it weird for them to be connected in this way still?
