Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert Are Getting a Divorce
Love really *is* dead.
TMZ reports that Shelton filed for divorce from Lambert, his wife of 4 years, in Oklahoma a while ago.
They also report that the judge is expected to make it official today. Which means we’ve been given zero time to cope with this one, and are just left to wonder what the heck happened.
The couple says,
This is not the future we envisioned and it is with heavy heart that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real family, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter.
Due to their prenup, all of their financial arrangements have already been settled. Sounds like it was quick and easy: Shelton will get the Oklahoma ranch, and Lambert will get their Nashville home.
Sources also told TMZ Lambert has been moving her show animals (“horses, a camel and a llama”) from the ranch over the past couple of days.
Lambert and Shelton have been fending off divorce rumors for a while now. Last April, they publicly addressed their split and pregnancy rumors in a set of funny tweets.
The couple won song of the year awards at the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music for Lambert’s hit “Over You” in 2012, which she and Shelton co-wrote about the death of his brother.
