Oh, no! Miranda Lambert and Anderson East are splitsville, according to a Dec. 14 report, and it’s not just because she’s still hung up on Blake Shelton. Apparently, the country superstar changed her mind about some important wedding plans, and that forced Anderson to leave! Here’s what happened.
“Miranda unwittingly sabotaged any last chance of keeping their romance alive,” the source claims, “When she put their earlier, tentative wedding plans on hold in November, telling Anderson she was too busy traveling and promoting her new album.” Of course, Miranda’s new record The Weight of These Wings was wildly successful, and we think it’s ridiculous that Anderson would make her choose between him and her career, don’t you?
Still, the insider insists that this problem was the final straw for Anderson. “I believe that gave him the time to think everything over — and he realized it was probably time to bail,” the source tells the mag.
Look, maybe Miranda just wasn’t ready for marriage again so soon! As she said in a January 2016 interview: “[Marriage is] a tough business…If I ever were to get married again, I feel like it’s not about it being a step in life. It’s not about a piece of paper or a diamond. It’s the way you feel about somebody and the commitment in your heart.” If that’s not good enough for Anderson, well, perhaps it’s best that it didn’t work out between them.
