Country’s most famous couple call it quits
Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert have confirmed they’re getting a divorce after four years of marriage. The news had been tabloid gossip for awhile, with Shelton’s label, Warner Music Nashville, confirming the news.
“This is not the future we envisioned,” the former couple said in the statement via the Assoicated Press.
“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.”
TMZ reports that the Shelton filed the papers in Oklahoma “a while ago” with a judge expecting to make the marriage over officially on July 20th. TMZ also claims the pair have a prenup and will split the finances relatively easily. Shelton will get the Oklahoma ranch while Lambert will get their Nashville palace.
The couple married in 2011 in Texas after falling in love in 2005 during a duet they performed together on CMT 100 Greatest Duets special.
They were seen together as recently as April at the ACMs in Texas.
