Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton laugh off split rumors: overblown or accurate?

I tend to believe the rumors that Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton are having problems. Miranda practically admitted that she got together with Blake while he was married to his last wife. She also admitted to snooping his phone. Meawhile Blake has claimed that Miranda is difficult to get along with, while Miranda slimmed down dramatically this year. It just reminded me of how Khloe Kardashian lost weight right around the time that Lamar was cheating on her.

Miranda and Blake’s alleged split, which we’ve been hearing about for over a year at least, takes the cover of the current National Enquirer. Here’s a segment from that story, which claims that Miranda wants Blake go to rehab, and that Blake wants children and Miranda isn’t ready.

Country musics’s hottest power couple got into a “rip-roaring screaming match” after Miranda demanded that the booze-loving “Voice” star check into rehab. And things got even more heated when Miranda – who recently dropped 30 pounds – threw Blake another curve by balking when he got on her case about having a baby.

“All hell broke loose,” said a source. “Blake said he wanted Miranda to be pregnant by their third wedding anniversary in May. He’s sick of waiting. He said that if Miranda was a good wife, she’d give him a baby. Miranda shot back ‘No way – not after losing all this weight…

“Miranda tore into Blake, calling him a ‘stupid idiot’ for thinking that she’d willingly let herself balloon back up after just getting into amazing shape,” said the source. “Then she dropped another bombshell. Miranda told Blake that she wouldn’t even consider bringing a baby into their lives unless Blake goes to rehab to tackle his drinking problem.”

Blake tweeted the following in response to the cover, not really denying much, but mocking the rumors in general.

Radar points out that Blake and Miranda were spotted together in Charlotte at one of Blake’s concerts. They point us to this fan picture of the two of them looking happy.

So are they having trouble or not? Signs point to yes for me. I mean they admit they don’t see each other much and they’ve both admitted, on the record, that things are rocky. But it’s a good sign for them that they’re fighting back against the rumors.

    While I’m sure that story is false or exaggerated, their life, based on stuff they’ve put out there, seems messy and overly dramatic.
    That red carpet photo makes me want to beg her to cut some bangs or something.

  2. Christin says:

    They may stay together just to defy the rumors. I do believe there is a lack of trust in that relationship. Her fiery temper probably isn’t as endearing if it’s directed at him now.

  3. Frida_K says:

    They look alike. Both have lantern jaws.

    It’s so odd, how some couples just look alike. One thing is after being together for decades, stuff starts to blur, but other couples just come right out of the gate as twinsies.

    I am quite happy with myself but don’t want to marry my own twin, thanks much. But that’s just me, no shade on anyone else who differs…

    HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!

      I’ve noticed this time and again, myself. I don’t think that they start to look like each other over time. I think it’s that they pick people who look like themselves to begin with. She still has him beat on the forehead acreage, though.

      Happy New Year to you, as well.

    Blake is a dog. It is inevitable 🙁

      ITA. He gives me the creeps. His comments to the young talent (females) on the Voice is squirm inducing at times. And I know that “once a cheater always a cheater” isn’t necessarily true, with him I just get a gut feeling it’s going to happen again.

      • debbie says:

        I have always said that he was a perv on the voice with the young girls. Glad to here I’m not the only one. If miranda cheated when blake was married before what can you expect. Weight should not be an issue if u really want children. You can exercise and be healthy while pregnate.

    She looks great with the weight loss but she needs to cover her thighs, or not wear the exact length she has in that black cutout dress. The way is hits her thighs makes them look very odd. Her lower legs look amazing.
    He strikes me as a douche in every way possible!

    • mayamae says:

      I think Miranda has hypermobile (sometimes called double jointed) knees, which makes her thighs look off in that photo.

  6. HH says:

    They are either having troubles or victims of putting too much information out there which allows the tabs to string together a story.

    That fan pic doesn’t mean much. My friend filed for divorce and had posted pics on a social networking site a few months prior of a fun family outing with her, the husband, and their son. People can have their happy moments while at the same time getting into shouting matches at home and trying to work through various problems.

    She looks good but I also liked her when she was a bit chubby. Maybe it is because I am about the size she was prior to the weight loss, but it is always nice to see a female celebrity who is normal sized and isn’t stick thin. After a celeb loses the weight, they have immense pressure to keep the weight off, so I doubt she will be going back to her old size anytime soon. I don’t know if the weight loss is due to her relationship problems or other reasons.

    I can see these two trying to work out their problems in order to maintain the marriage for as long as possible. They are country’s power couple and it benefits their images and careers to stay together.

      I have no idea about the status of their relationship. I’m just coming here to say that I preferred her pre-weight loss too. I don’t mean to criticize or “body-shame” her for losing weight because her body looks amazing now (though I also thought her body was perfectly fine- and refreshingly “normal” pre-weight loss)- but losing weight has changed her face so much! She doesn’t look like the same person to me at all, and where I thought her so cute before, now she looks older and harder.

  8. Tiffany says:

    When you start relationship on deceit and total self created drama, of course you are going to spend all of your time worrying. I do not follow the them except on here. Have they always shown these personalities or did something change once they got together.

  9. ALJsMom says:

    The middle part is not her friend. She definitely needs some sort of bang

  10. Bodhi says:

    There is so much ridiculousness in this story.

    He’s demanding that she has a baby? What the what? First off: um, no, thats not how that works. And second, rehab discourages making big life changes (like HAVING A BABY) when you are newly sober. And another thing… I don’t think she’s lost 30lbs. 20, maybe, but I doubt 30. She looks fantastic whatever the number is, though.

    I don’t think their relationship is perfect by any means, but I don’t think they on the verge of splitting up either

    RDJ doesn’t look as good shirtless as I’d hoped.

  12. TheOneandOnlyOnly says:

    Their music really is generic and forgettable – it puts me to sleep. That’s all I have.

    Blake seemsso greasy to me…

  14. Just from all the drama I’ve heard about these two–I wouldn’t be surprised if they broke up, cheating or no.

    As for Miranda and Blake’s alleged cheating, I’m more inclined to believe it because she’s talking to the MEDIA about checking his phone, being worried that he was talking to other women, etc. That’s not something that should be shared with the press–that’s how rumors start….like this tabloid now.

    I’ve said time and again–I don’t think you can help how you feel about someone-married or not (you or the other person). I think what counts is what you do with that. Like, I’ve read on this site (from a diff. poster) that Blake’s marriage was on the rocks when they met. It could be a case of both of them (or just Blake) mentally being checked out of their marriage, and just being married. Then he meets Miranda. I have no clue whether or not they were sleeping together, or anything like that–but she at least admitted to being attracted to him.

    That’s not something I would admit in an interview–but I think there is a big difference in being attracted to a taken man, acknowledging that and keeping the appropriate boundaries up-but still being friendly, than acknowledging it, maybe not acting on it–but putting yourself and the other person in a bad situation. Like I said above, I’m more inclined to believe that Miranda-who may or may not have slept with him before he and his wife broke up-inserted herself into the marriage, simply because of how she watches Blake.

    If she’s admitting that to the press, then God knows how bad it is at home.

    If Blake’s marriage was on the rocks, and then he became attracted to another woman–then I see nothing wrong with stepping back, with his wife and discussing if they want to continue on with this marriage–to see if either of them want to work on what they have, or separate, so they can both be happy. People will get hurt, no matter what–no matter how respectful you try to be to each other. But I don’t think that’s what went down. Miranda is guilty and watches Blake like a hawk.

    The Enquirer’s been running some pretty goofy stories about country stars lately, probably realizing that country stars are kind of the new mainstream stars to tear down (pop stars are kind of ahead of the game lately). The tabloid go-tos for stories are a) female celebrity pregnant and betrayed, b) professional celebrity woman is not popping out babies for husband so he feels betrayed, and c) cheating. Mix & match, and you have your Enquirer/Star story and sorry but I just don’t think the stories have much to do with reality right now.

    I think Blake & Miranda are a combustible couple but I don’t believe the Enquirer story at all. Blake likes to feed the beast. He’s always said these tabloid stories just means your name is money in the bank so he works it whenever there’s another story about him. But if anything I think he and Miranda are in a calm period right now.
