Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton may be on the verge of a split

Our last coverage on Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert was a front-page, publicist-approved US Weekly article with a lot of quotes suggesting severe cracks in their less then two year marriage. Miranda admitted, on the record, that she snoops into Blake’s phone and reads his Twitter direct messages, adding “it just takes the question out of the marriage.” Other, unnamed sources told US that Miranda knew that Blake was “flirty” with other women but that she believed his assurances that he hasn’t cheated and that she’s standing by him. (Remember that Miranda half-admitted that she hooked up with Blake when he was married to his first wife, so she has reason to worry.)

Well that might not be for long, because Miranda and Blake are either about to split or they have already, depending on which tabloid you believe. Radar has the details for us:

“Despite being married, Miranda and Blake are like two ships passing in the night,” a source told the National Enquirer, who is reporting it’s splitsville for the once happy couple.

“Between their touring schedules and public appearances, they’re actually together only about 50 days a year. That’s no way to run a marriage — and suspicions and jealousies creep up between them.”

Speaking of jealousy, Star magazine is reporting that Miranda is green with envy over Blake’s decision to bring Sheryl Crow onto The Voice as his guest mentor.

“Miranda lit into Blake. She bawled and screamed that he’s heartless, and he yelled back that she needs to chill out and trust him,” a pal told the magazine.

“Sheryl’s been texting and calling Blake during off-hours, and Miranda is extremely annoyed.”

But as RadarOnline.com exclusively reported last week, it was Miranda who turned down the guest mentor gig on her hubby’s talent show!

“Blake originally wanted Miranda to be his celebrity mentor this season, and of course the producers of The Voice were all for it,” an insider revealed to Radar.

“While she had to turn it down because there would have been conflicts with her touring schedule, it still became the cause of a few major arguments between them.”

According to the Enquirer, the two have a difference of opinion of where they’d like to spend their time — Blake in LA and Miranda in Oklahoma — and the good looking 36-year-old being constantly surrounded by young beautiful singers isn’t helping matters.

[From Radar Online]

They don’t trust each other, they want to live in different cities, and they haven’t spent much time together. They’ve only been married two years and they don’t have any kids yet, so there’s that. I don’t see how they’re going to last, but at least they can fly to see each other whenever they have a moment free. Miranda should visit Blake unannounced sometimes so she can check up on him.

    you’ll lose him the way you got him

  2. the original bellaluna says:

    Well, I’d say she has reason not to trust him, but it’s not like she didn’t know what she was getting into.

  3. Lb says:

    Trust is everything. It’s cliched but true. Without trust, you’re building a relationship on a shaky foundation and everything can easily collapse.

  4. MrsB says:

    If neither of them is willing to turn down work in order to spend time together, I don’t see how it will ever work. Sad because I think they are cute together.

  5. Ama says:

    ..”she hooked up with Blake when he was married to his first wife, so she has reason to worry”…I don’t understand all this shaming of people who’ve been unfaithful. There might me two sides to the story!
    And just because a relationship doesn’t start with one of them having a “history of cheating” doesn’t mean they stay faithful. Tiger W.???

    • aims says:

      I guess where I’m coming from is, if you’re unhappy in your marriage, separate, then go do your thing. If you have little regard and respect towards your spouse that you can go outside your marriage, that’s a problem. It seems that this was a relationship built upon lies, sneaky, and deceptive behavior. so, that’s a bad start. If he can do it to his first wife, he can do it to you.

      • Ama says:

        I agree aims, BUT there are other prominent examples, like Paul Newman. He met Joanne Woodward in 1953, and divorced filming in 1958, after meeting her again in 1957. As we know, the had a good marriage happily ever after. I don’t know where you are coming from, but is certainly not the US or Europe (my ship ;-)

      • bns says:


        Not saying it’s true, but there have been so many stories about Paul Newman being a philandering alcoholic while he was married to Joanne.

      • aims says:

        I’m from the States. Paul and Joanne are the exception. My issue is and will always be respect. It just feels so disrespectful to the jilted person. Plus, I wouldn’t want my relationship to have that kinda start. I would feel embarrassed and a little ashamed that I was involved something like that.

      • lucy2 says:

        That’s my thought too – if you’re that unhappy to the point where you’d cheat, separate.

      • Veruca says:

        I don’t know… after seeing this, I question their (Paul & Joanne’s) relationship a bit, and it makes me wonder about his ‘mentoring’ of GMD:


      • Tulip Garden says:

        I agree with you, Aims. It really is all about respect and common decency. If a spouse doesn’t give that to their partner then, yes, it is shameful. There are other ways besides infidelity to show gross amounts of disrespect to your spouse during divorce, of course. It really does seem like it is a character issue. I don’t think that I could be with someone who cheated b/c it exposes that person’s character. Now, I’m not talking about something done as teenage daters or whatever but about how a person treats someone that they have been in a committed relationship with when that relationship is ending. Just my thoughts.

      • Beatriz says:

        They are not just stories, Paul himself admitted many times that he was a functioning alcoholic for many years (I think he stopped drinking shortly after his son’s death, if I remember correctly). I don’t know how his alcoholism has anything to do with the fact that he met Joanne while he was married and cheated, though.
        I know people always use Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward as an example on how cheaters can make it as a couple, but I think they are one of the few exceptions, not the rule.

    • irishserra says:

      How is that shaming? It’s a fact. And it’s also a fact that partners who cheated on their former partners to be with each other tend to have trust issues in their relationship.

      So you can be sensitive all you want about it; but the truth is, if you present yourself as dishonest, you will be perceived as dishonest.

      • Tulip Garden says:

        You put my feelings and thoughts on the subject much more succinctly than I did! So, yes, exactly what you said.
        Lastly, it is a fact. It is also something that one should be ashamed of. I don’t get this fear of naming a behavior as “shameful”. Some things simply are.

      • aims says:

        Right. If you go into an affair knowing full well that this is going to destroy a family, then yes, that is shameful. It always makes my head explode when I hear the mistress or second wife say, ” I can’t believe this happen to me.” How are you any different then the person he cheated on?

        also, if you have to live your life with the constant worry and needing to have to check in on his activities, then that isn’t a life. it is not worth the heartache, stress, and anguish. A relationship is supposed to have trust, and when your partner says something, you should be able to take him for his word.

  6. Sam says:

    Is this really shocking at all? I mean, he’s pretty much established as having a wandering eye.

    I think a divorce would be tougher on Miranda. She’s sort of cultivated such a tough girl image through her music but in interviews she comes off as extremely vulnerable and shaky in her marriage. I think Blake would go on to be just fine, but I think that it would severely hurt Miranda. Even though I do think she’s probably a control freak, I can’t help but feel bad for her.

    • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:


      It’s hard seeing the feisty girl behind Kerosene/Gunpowder and Lead/White Liar come across as insecure and clingy. Maybe Blake just shakes up her confidence that much?

      All I know about him is that he started to gain momentum again after they got together, because she was The Next Big Thing.

  7. Christin says:

    Showing up unexpectedly is good advice. However, if there is a trust question, she may be afraid of the answer she might find.

    • FLORC says:

      That’s terrible advice. At least for myself and several friends that dated cheaters it never goes well. A cheater is manipulative in nature. If you show up unannounced it’ll be seen as an attack and you not trusting them. They’ll spin it around on you and have a huge fight.

      I always looked at this couple like Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner. She knows him, but as long as he is a good father and keeps it secret they can be a family.

  8. Michelle says:

    He has always given me the creeps. I don’t see his appeal.

  9. Regina George says:

    They look like a middle aged couple on a cruise

  10. TG says:

    When one is busy running over turtles and the other is rescuing every animal under the sun it was bound to fail.

  11. vixenella says:

    Can someone explain his appeal to me? He is not attractive, he is obnoxious, cocky, and just…he just rubs me the wrong way lol.

  12. truthful says:

    Blake seems to be a slick one, and Miranda signed up for it…

    I’ll be watching this one

  13. WhiskeyGirl says:

    I could be wrong but I just don’t think they’re gonna get divorced. Yeah, he’s a flirt and they got together right around when his marriage was ending or he ended it because of her. But the way he looks at her and talks about her, I see a man who is truly devoted and in love with his wife.

    At the ACMs when they won the award for “Over You”, he was adorable when he talked about how much better she makes him.

  14. Hakura says:

    It’s not a good sign that it’s gotten to this point. A relationship is ALL about trust, which she no longer has for him at all, it sounds like.

    I’m not very familiar w/them, but someone else said she got involved w/him while he was still married?

  15. j.eyre says:

    But “divorce is not an option”, right? So is she going to kill him?

  16. Elceibeno says:

    Not only Miranda should drop announced on Blake, she should also carefully go over his cell phone records to find out who has he been calling and who called him..

  17. jean vie says:

    MB got her husband while he was still married. she is worst than Chris Brown. snatching a married man is like a form of abuse. you are
    an abuser Miranda Lambert and a hypocrite to boot!

  18. KellyinSeattle says:

    They are such a contrived couple….he seems like an ass and she seems like she she has a stick up her ass.

  19. Tiffany :) says:

    “Trust” is such a sensitive thing…I just don’t see how it can be precisely conveyed through gossip. All of this info is the sort of thing it is easy to say but very hard to prove one way or the other.

    It is hard to have an opinion on long distance speculation about people the sources don’t even know.

  20. irishserra says:

    “Miranda should visit Blake unannounced sometimes so she can check up on him.”

    I agree with his, bus it doesn’t surprise me that she doesn’t. My sister is in a relationship based on lies and mistrust and she said the reason why she doesn’t check up on her boyfriend is because she just doesn’t think she can handle finding out the worst. I think that’s warped and sad. Additionally, because of the way my sister got together with her boyfriend she feels like she deserves whatever she gets. I also think it speaks volumes about my sister’s self worth to pin her life on such a weak facade. Ugh.

    But I find myself wondering if Miranda is in a similar situation.

  21. Mel says:

    I can’t stand her. Ugh. I’m just over these two.

  22. Breanna says:

    And to think, just yesterday CMT aired a rerun about Miranda Lambert with at least 10 minutes devoted to gushing about her connection to Blake Shelton. The phrase “meant to be” was thrown around. This is why you keep your relationship quiet, people!

  23. Holden says:

    It’s way too hard to do everything required to keep a great marriage alive if you don’t even get the payoff of spending time with that person. A long distance marriage? No thanks.

  24. mayamae says:

    Rather than thinking their having no children means their marriage is shaky, I’d like to think it’s actually a sign of maturity. How many times do people have kids to “fix” a shaky marriage? What a crappy situation to bring a kid into.

    • Lauren says:

      +1. I dispise when woman have children to rescue a troubled relationship. Bloody foolish and selfish. Men resent Entrapment deeply especially if they have informed you they do not want children. There is nothing more damaging than feeling unwanted and unloved in your childhood.

  25. MrsBPitt says:

    Miranda needs to call Gwenyth Paltrow for some relationship advise.

    ML: Goop, I’m afraid Blake is cheating?
    GP: Now, Miranda, have you bleached your
    anus as we discussed?
    ML: Yes, Goop…
    GP: Have you cooked Blake a gourmet
    ML: Yes, Goop…
    GP: When he made you angry, did you
    give him head?
    ML: Yes, Goop…he is ignoring me,
    won’t go out with me, and treats me
    like he can’t stand me…
    GP: So it worked!!!! Now you have a
    marriage just like mine!!!

  26. poof says:

    Welp? How you get him is how you keep him.

  27. supermom says:

    This whole story is made up crap. The National Enquirer? Really? They are just another famous couple under attack because the media is bored to death.

  28. mk says:

    Guess it’s time to stop worrying about Chris Brown now.

  29. mike says:

    Didn’t Miranda know that when she married him she created a job opening that she used to fill.

  30. country music fan says:

    People don’t worry about who the breakup will be hardest on. Both will make it. I say the sooner the better for Miranda.Get out of that Po Dunk Town she is in. Let Blake continue on with his Young Ones. Yes, he puts Miranda down, but she handles it with whats in the solo cup right at presents, but it will take over one day. What woman out here would really enjoy having their picture in the magazines with CADY GROVES.Blake says he loves being in the magazines, so why stop tweeting Ms Cady in the open. Would it not help keep him in the news.Is he the one thats going to the magazines to get CADY GROVES’S Music out there?I believe Cady got to be a bit much for Miranda, so she has now settled for RaelYNN…His Nose Picker
