“This is not the future we envisioned. 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.”
This was the joint statement the Country power couple released to the AP yesterday, letting their fans, colleagues, and friends know that their 4 year marriage has ended! Fans flocked to Social Media hoping the news of their divorce was false like all the other rumors before! The rumors this couple has endured, consisted fodder of “problems in the marriage” and “false pregnancy” for a good majority of their time together, yet always took to Social Media firing back with laughs and a few come backs. Fans were stunned today to learn that indeed the rumors were true this time.
The rumors that haunted the couple have not stopped now that the divorce was announced either! Rumors that Blake Shelton & Miranda Lambert have been in counseling for 2 years and as recently, on a trial separation are not the only rumors abound on the tabloid sites! It’s being reported that Blake filed 2 weeks ago after having suspicions for a few years, that his wife had cheated on him not once, but twice during their marriage. One with a fellow Country Singer and the other, who is believed to be the catalyst for the Divorce Petition, not in the music business. The divorce was actually signed on Monday when the couple released their statement. So, this fairy tale romance that started nearly ten years ago came to an end! An amicable end seeing the couple had a Prenup in place!
This fairy tale started when the 2 performed a duet for a CMT taping that started the fairy tale back in 2006. Blake gushed about singing with Miranda, that he had fallen for the blonde blue eyed Texan right there on stage! They started to date after Blake divorced his 1st wife, a point they made when rumors fled that the romance between the 2 broke his marriage up. He proposed in 2010 and the couple married a year later. The pretty open couple always tried to keep their very personal, very intimate life as private as possible, but in 2011, footage into that private life surfaced in Blake’s “God Gave Me You” video of Miranda looking into the camera 36 hours before they wed saying,
“We made it through the unthinkable, we have made it through everything we can possibly make it through. I know we have a lot more trials and tribulations to go but I’m ready to join in with you on that journey.”
Fans fed on this fairy tale love story hoping that unlike other celebrity marriage, theirs would have the fairy tale ending! Blake even stated that “this marriage would be my last”! This wouldn’t be the only “private moment” into the couple’s life! This time, from Blake who discussed his sadness over the loss of his brother in a car accident when the 2 penned the Hit “Over You” for which the pair won Song of The Year in 2013! Sadly, all those shared private moments left fans of the pair crushed!
The couple, who did not have any children, had been last seen together on July 3rd when performed together at the Greenbriar Classic in West Virginia. Maybe the sadness of their upcoming divorce hit Miranda a bit too hard. Last Saturday, 2 days before their Divorce was announced, a video captures the singer getting extremely emotional when singing “The House That Built Me”. So, the ending to this Fairy Tale, didn’t end the way most had hoped, but with the time away from each other, marriage problem rumors, and possible infidelity, it leaves one wondering if this really was a true Fairy Tale?
