When Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert announced their divorce yesterday with a joint statement, they said “it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately.” Now, other sources say the split isn’t quite so amicable.
Although Blake has been the target of multiple cheating rumors throughout their four-year marriage, a source told People that all of the chatter was unfounded.
“Blake is just that incredibly loyal and dedicated husband,” a source close to the Voice coach said. “I can guarantee you he has been faithful to that woman.”
In fact, “multiple” other sources told TMZ Blake was the one suspicious of his spouse: After hearing rumors of a fling between Miranda and her former opening singer Chris Young two years ago, the insiders said Blake lost some of his trust in her. So, when he “received certain information” a few weeks ago about Miranda and another man, “that elevated things in Blake’s head from rumor to fact.” The insiders said that is what caused him to file for divorce two weeks ago — and said he is so upset he’s demanding Miranda remove her animals from his property by Monday.
However, sources close to Miranda told People she is just as heartbroken.
“She’s doing the best she can and taking it day by day,” the insider said, adding Miranda is “sad and trying to process everything.”
An Oklahoma judge approved the divorce yesterday. The process of dividing assets was reportedly made easy because of Miranda and Blake’s prenuptial agreement.
