Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert Divorce after Four Years
The couple confirmed the news in a statement on Monday saying that this was not the future they had envisioned.
After years of tabloid gossip claiming marital troubles, country music’s top couple Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert announced their divorce after four years of marriage.
The news was confirmed in a statement by the couple issued by their representatives on Monday.
“This is not the future we envisioned,” the former couple said in the statement.
“And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real families, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter.”
The two multiplatinum stars came together just as their careers were hitting their peak, but the couple had to constantly deny rumors that their superstar careers were taking a toll on their marriage.
Although sometimes they joked about competing against each other for awards, publicly they were constantly championing each other’s successes and there were no obvious signs of trouble when the couple appeared at the Academy of Country Music Awards together in April.
39-year-old Shelton first marriage of three years ended in divorce.
