People: Miranda Lambert is ‘the reason’ why Evan Felker ghosted & abandoned his wife

2016 CMA Music Festival

Part of me sort of hate-respects Miranda Lambert. She’s so brazen, so unapologetic, so “I’ll do whatever I want.” She’s now “the reason” why another man is divorcing his wife. The first time that happened, it was Blake Shelton leaving his wife for Miranda. Then Blake left Miranda when she cheated on him throughout their marriage. Then Anderson East left Miranda because she was cheating on him with Evan Felker. Then Evan Felker left his wife because of Miranda. Despite Blake’s attempts to be part of this conversation, this story would already be scandalous enough. You know it’s bad when even People Magazine is spelling it out for their readers that Miranda is exactly the kind of woman who will brazenly “steal” their husbands. Some highlights from this super-dishy People Mag piece:

Evan Felker blind-sided his wife by filing for divorce in mid-February: “The notion that [Felker and Nelson’s] divorce happened for any reason other than that is complete bulls—,” a source close to the couple exclusively tells PEOPLE.

Felker & Lambert texted before their three-day tour together: “They had never met and she had started texting him about looking forward to playing together and getting to know each other and maybe they could write because she really liked his writing sort of thing,” says the source. “It started very much about work. He was completely thrilled. By the time he was leaving for tour, it had become a lot flirtier.”

Felker was honest with his wife about the texting: During their one-and-a-half-year marriage, Felker and his wife Nelson, 33, were like “best friends,” says the source, and he was open with her about Lambert’s text messages before heading out on the road. “He knew it was flirty and crossed a line with Staci. He showed her the whole thing and felt bad about it. It wasn’t sexual or anything, but he was like, ‘I don’t want to blow her off because this is the kind of money that can change our grandkids’ lives if I’m able to write with this person,’” adds the source.

Miranda & Evan were only together for 3 days when he left his wife: “[People are] making it seem like, ‘Oh, they got close while they were on tour together,’ as if the tour was six months long, but it was three days, and the first two of those he was still acting like he was in love with his wife,” the insider says, adding that Felker “didn’t even call home the third night.”

After three days, he ghosted his wife: He continued traveling with Lambert, telling his wife via email, “I’m not coming home this week,” according to the source. Felker then “full-on ghosted” Nelson as Lambert shared cryptic posts via Instagram, the source says. On Feb. 7, Lambert posted a photo of her smiling in front of a mirror featuring the words “I do this thing called whatever I want” written in red. And on March 7, Lambert posted a photo of graphing paper, which the source says Felker uses to write lyrics, and Modelo, his favorite beer. “Tools. #Texas #cowrite #happyhours,” Lambert wrote in the caption.

Evan eventually called his wife in mid-March: Felker eventually called his wife in late March and “laid it all on the table, like, ‘Surprise!’” the source tells PEOPLE, adding, “He’s always the kind of guy where if he screws up he comes clean…He got sucked into it. He’s not a victim; he’s a grown man and should have said no,” says the source of Felker and Lambert.

[From People]

“He got sucked into it. He’s not a victim; he’s a grown man and should have said no.” I’m sure he did get sucked into it. I mean, not to be filthy, but I would imagine that Miranda would have to be absolutely mind-blowing in bed. That’s part of her sorcery. As for the rest of it… I mean, I guess it’s sort of refreshing that everything is out there completely, and that Miranda’s not trying to position herself as Little Miss Innocent, and Evan Felker isn’t giving interviews about how he had to leave his wife because She Didn’t Understand Him. It is what it is: a dude cheated on his wife and then he left his wife for his mistress. And it all happened in a matter of 72 hours.

    My stepsister is on her 6th husband. In the past, she’s “stolen” them from other women, cheated on them and even ran one over with her car (thank goodness he wasn’t hurt). I imagine Miranda is a lot like my step sister. She’s a lot of fun at first and then it gets real messy. Run, Evan, run.

    • Léna says:

      Wow!! 6 marriages, 6 weddings!! That must have cost a lot of money lol

    • Tessy says:

      I used to work with a woman like that. She went through husbands like crazy, as well as affairs where she didn’t make it to the altar. I don’t know how many marriages she broke up. She wasn’t particularly good looking at all and had to me at least a very annoying personality, all I could think of is she must have been a real crackerjack in bed.

  2. JENNIFER says:

    Wow. To tell HIS WIFE that to write songs with this flirty woman would change THEIR GRANDKIDS lives, so he couldn’t possibly draw clear boundaries FOR THEIR FUTURE GRANDKIDS. Then totally ghosted his wife after just 3 days?? What. A. Pig.

    • CTwinter says:

      He’s a weak man, Miranda is a messy trailer trash chick and neither has a moral compass.

    • LL says:

      @JENNIFER That is all kinds of manipulative and gross. Talk about laying it on thick…not ever your kids (who do not yet exist) but your grandchildren? Good Lord…

    • Va Va Kaboom says:

      He may have said that to his wife’s face, but the likelihood is he was already looking for an exit strategy. I imagine he was either hedging his bets or avoiding a face-to-face confrontation about ending the marriage. The fact he ghosted her the whole time (instead of keeping up the pretense) makes me think it’s the latter. If he were truly happy with Nelson, it would have taken him more than three days to chuck his marriage away.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Yeah, I’m thinking that it clearly wasn’t a big moral struggle for him if it only took 3 days.

        He was probably thinking he is touring/writing with the big time now and he’s going to be a star with a wife who isn’t. He sounds like he already had a foot out the door before he even went on tour.

      • Courtney says:

        The assumption that cheaters are all unhappy in their marriages is just fasle.

      • Va Va Kaboom says:

        I wasn’t talking about all cheaters. In this particular case, I think how quickly he ended the marriage after cheating indicates he had one foot out of the door already.

      • SK says:

        OR this guy sees $$$ and a much bigger career if he is Miranda’s significant other and he is just that type of mercenary person who will dump anything and anyone to get his career where he wants it to be. He saw his chance and he went for it – ruthlessly.

    • holly hobby says:

      For some reason as I read this I read “flirty” as “filthy.” Hahah it must be something for men to act like dicks around Miranda.

  3. Annabelle says:

    Please call me when this drama gets picked up by Netflix. I want to binge watch every single episode of that ten part series. I wish I was that popular with boys. It must take some skill to get men to do whatever she wants. Otherwise, I suspect that with her personality, she’s a go-getter, and she’s probably not fully self-aware. She might be into the thrill of getting men to fall for her. She’s probably one of those girls who gets bored easily. I totally get it.

  4. Red says:

    Wait why would she have to be mind blowing in bed? That’s not why people cheat. It’s pretty straight forward here-this guy probably felt flattered that a big star was interested in him. He probably thinks she’s could help him get even bigger in the entertainment world. I don’t think her bed skills have anything to do with it.

    • Ehh says:

      +1. It says a lot more about him than either woman involved. Cheaters don’t cheat because the other woman is prettier or better in bed. They cheat because they are cheaters. It’s really that simple.

    • WhatThe says:

      I agree Red. I think it’s the stardom, money and being flattered that she would wants him. What I am having a hard time with is how long his wife let him ghost her without jumping on a plane and going to rip his face off and punch Miranda in the nose. Her heart must be broken to think he loved her, and in three days time he became enamored with someone else. So sad.

    • Sherry says:

      @Red – This! I remember years ago when Oprah still had her show, she did a two-part series on why men cheat and I think her audience was made up of people where the men had cheated on their wives. She also had a therapist on the show. Some of the women were like, “I don’t get it! She’s ugly and overweight! Why?”

      The conclusion was that men don’t cheat because someone is prettier, or smarter or whatever else people might think. It boiled down to the way the other person made them feel about themselves.

      It makes sense when you think about it. Let’s take Miranda’s situation here. You’ve got the wife talking about making the mortgage payments and bills and everything else, while Miranda is probably gushing over him, telling him what a talented songwriter he is and he’s so good looking and hot …

      I want to be clear that Oprah stated that it was NOT the wife or husband’s fault, it was a weakness in their spouse that drew them into that shallow pool.

      • Wendy says:

        Yes!!!!!

        I had the good fortune of working for a psychiatrist when my husband left me for a nineteen year old girl. (I was thirty three). The doctor told me, “Don’t think this has anything to do with you. He left because he wanted to. She makes him feel needed. She NEEDS him. You don’t need him. In time you won’t WANT him either, then wonder what attracted you to him to begin with”. God, he was so smart.

        You are exactly correct about all cheaters. It’s about how that person makes them feel.

      • Avery says:

        @Sherry & Wendy Wow! This is so eye opening. You can so easily think it is your fault and get caught up in what you should have done better or different. My ex-needs to be worshipped and made to feel like a hero. With kids and bills and just life it’s like really….When I look at what he is with now…I am like WTFFFFFF! What was I thinking? How could I have not seen this?

    • Va Va Kaboom says:

      That “mind-blowing in bed” excuse has always confused me. If for no other reason than he had no way of knowing how good her “skills” were prior to sleeping with her. Something else convinced him cheating with her was worth trashing his marriage over.

      • LaraK says:

        This! By the time they find out, they are already cheating.
        I agree with the comments above too – it’s about the thrill and feeling needed, nothing to do with bedroom skills.

    • Penelope says:

      ITA, Red. Well said.

  5. Annika says:

    WTF?
    I mean, Miranda is very talented & attractive but… I don’t get it? Dumping your wife at the drop of a hat for a woman you just met????!!

    • LaraK says:

      Dumping your wife for a countey superstar who makes you feel like a Star too.
      If you are a weak, sad man in need of constant validation, makes perfect sense!

  6. MandyMc says:

    Did I read somewhere that her parents were private investigators? I wonder how that plays into her cheating/dating married men.

  7. tonetest says:

    Did Miranda train at a Parisian brothel or something? What kind of skills did she show off in those 72 hours?!

    Thats not to say that Evan Felker isn’t a two faced, social climbing little gold digger who was ready to throw his marriage away as soon as a “star” gave him even the slightest attention, but damn! 72 hours?! LMAO

  8. minx says:

    Ghosting someone you are actually married to…yikes.

  9. Merritt says:

    He ghosted and abandoned his wife because he is a crap person. If it wasn’t Miranda Lambert, it would have been someone else.

    • TheOriginalMia says:

      This👆🏼She didn’t bewitch him. He’s an opportunist who saw chance to dump his wife and he took it.

    • Gigi LaMoore says:

      Exactly. He is a grown man and is responsible for his own behavior. Stacy may be hurting now, but she’s had a lucky escape. He is a piece of trash.

    • Sullivan says:

      Yep. He’s a schmuk. She married a schmuk and was fortunate to find this out in less than two years.

      • shockedandappalled says:

        I looked at at Staci Felker’s instagram. They may only have been married for about 1.5 years, but they were together for SEVERAL years as a couple. Tons of cute photos of them together, with family, with friends. I mean, what a betrayal.

        I am super curious about their relationship and his psychology. What he did seems totally sociopathic… I mean, maybe he was unhappy in the relationship and not saying anything (or saying things and she’s pretending now all is fine), but man, that’s a nasty way to go regardless. Ever heard of talking to your partner in person and trying to work it out first? Yikes.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      This exactly.

  10. Miss M says:

    So, Miranda’s tactic is to flatter her target’s ego saying she is looking foreard to work with them and write music with them…
    She cannot wait to “collaborate”…
    This woman is really messed up and probably a master at self sabotage. It is going to get old, Miranda.

  11. BearcatLawyer says:

    Staci Felker might not believe this now, but she is better off getting out of this marriage. Evan has shown his true colours. She deserves better.

    • Juls says:

      Yeah, the grass is always greener. Until you discover you have to mow that sh!* too, just like your old grass that you thought was such a “chore”.
      Dollars to donuts, ML will chew him up and spit him out and he will have massive regret and wish he had his old “lawn” back, the one he chose because it fit his life so well. I agree that he did his wife a favor by showing himself for who he really is, 3 years into the relationship instead of 30. She deserves better and better she will be after the heartache subsides.

      • Christin says:

        The grass looks greener, until he realizes all the “fertilizer” that makes it that way. And I suspect Ms. Miranda has a lot of “fertilizer”. Hope he enjoys the brief fame.

        Miranda and Julia R should hang around together. This sounds like how she and her now-husband got together (just at a faster speed).

    • Jennifer says:

      +1000

  12. Zapp Brannigan says:

    Is there some sort of Go Fund Me set up for these poor unfortunate men that are lured by the siren call of “strange”. This is truly a national tragedy that good men are being seduced away from their wives.

    Seriously Netflix or HBO need to be filming “Boot Scootin’ Cooch: The Miranda Lambert Story” right now!

  13. KBeth says:

    They are both disgusting.

  14. Other Renee says:

    There are names for women like Miranda and none are nice. As for the idiot Felker, he has delusions of stardom and awards and red carpets. What he doesn’t realize is that women will shun him and his music and he will actually lose fans rather than gain them. Women do not like cheaters. Unless they’re women like Miranda who think of it as sport.

  15. Goldengirllover34 says:

    I don’t follow country music so I don’t really know all the players but this is messy. Is Miranda some sort of siren? From the pics she is cute but she doesn’t come off as some sexed up woman? The men are just as culpable as her since you know they are married and made a vow.

    How does one ghost their spouse? I didn’t even know that was possible. I could be a hothead so I would show up at his tour spot in my headwrap and a mumu just acting a fool.

  16. ValiantlyVarnished says:

    Welp these two are both garbage human beings so they deserve each other. To ghost your wife after THREE DAYS?? For Miranda Lambert?!

    I have a theory about Miranda. I think growing up she wasnt all that attractive or popular and spent a lot of time being picked on by other girls – and boys. And now that she’s an adult she gets her self esteem from “stealing” the men of women like rhe ones she grew up with. But because she still has crap self esteem she can never be happy with the affections and attention of just one man. She will never be satisfied in a relationship.

    • Kitty says:

      Good analysis. I know a girl like this, she doesn’t go out with anyone she meets that is single at the time

    • Amelie says:

      I dug up some pictures of her on Google image as a kid. She had this awkward braces and bangs phase when she was younger (like we all did, I had braces AND glasses AND bangs before I came to my senses and grew out my bangs in 6th grade) but she was by no means hideous. By high school she had grown out of it. She has this baby face thing going on that I guess guys might be into but I think she has a way of making guys feel like they are the only thing that matters in the world. She does the Cool Girl thing and if guys are weak, they can’t help but drop everything to be with her like this new guy she’s taken up with. A few years down the road he will be in the exact same position as Blake and it will be very satisfying for his soon to be ex wife to watch.

      • ValiantlyVarnished says:

        Low self esteem can manifest in lots of ways. One can FEEL unattractive and not be (though I personally have never found her to be all that cute). A woman who gets her kicks out of picking unavailable men has some serious self esteem issues any way you slice it.

  17. LadyT says:

    “I do this thing called whatever I want.” My sister and I laughingly use this motto over simple fun things like buying a new purse just because, or ordering a fancy dessert with afternoon coffee or slipping in an unplanned day at the beach, etc. etc. But just NO to using this saying to excuse a complete lack of moral integrity.

    • Millennial says:

      Right?! This is a phrase I use when I want to stay up late reading a trashy romance novel when I’ve got to go to work tomorrow 😂 not cheating with some man.

  18. Dee says:

    She mus have beer flavored nipples. I don’t see the appeal but I’m also not a straight white male.

  19. Svea says:

    Have siad it for a very long time. Miranda is a cold-hearted snake.

  20. BaronSamedi says:

    Wow. This comment section is… something.

    I can’t believe that in 2018 it’s apparently still all on the other woman when a man can’t keep it in his pants?

    Also serious question: As far as I know a marriage is still a voluntary contract between two consenting parties. If one party wants to dissolve that contract that is entirely their right.

    Reading some of the commentary it’s as if the second someone said yes they never ever have the right to leave? I’m not saying that this guy is not awful for how he treated his wife and the manner in which he left. But he STILL has the right to leave any time he wants to? Does it really matter WHY he did it in the long run?

    • Dee says:

      It’s not that it’s all on her. Yes, it’s his fault but she KNOWINGLY pursued a married man (multiple of them). The fault lies on both of them.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      Of course anyone has the right to end a marriage at any time for any reason, but it may be decent to end that marriage before falling into another bed first. With rights come responsibilities, that seems to be forgotten sometimes.

    • Kitty says:

      Half the comments here are said in a joking way as far as I can tell. And yes, Evan could have left the marriage whenever he wanted, nobody said he couldn’t. It’s the shitty way he did. And no, it’s not Miranda’s fault, but if she was knowingly texted, flirting and trying to get with him, some of it is on her too. She has a long history of doing this exact thing

    • Gigi LaMoore says:

      The fault mainly lies with him. He is the one who entered into a legal contract and made vows. Miranda is a pig but she isn’t the one who betrayed the wife. She betrays sisterhood by her actions, but what happened to the wife, if really all on him.

      • ASHBY says:

        @ Gigi LaMoore

        I think they are both responsible. Evan can’t cheat on his own, the accomplice here is Miranda. She seems to be fine with wrecking people’s lives. There is a pattern here and certainly not a good one. Evan made the vows to his wife, so he has more culpability.
        If he didn’t want to be married, he should have said so to his partner and not wait until he found someone “BETTER” in his mind to cheat with. Miranda should know that her actions have consequences…what comes around goes around…karma is on the way…

    • ValiantlyVarnished says:

      “Does it really matter WHY he did it in the long run?”
      Yes, actually it does. Because one of the vows when one gets married is to be faithful. Marriages break up all the time but to betray the trust of the person you legally and romantically committed to is pretty messed up.
      And in 2018 we should all be able to take responsibility for our behavior and choices. It was his choice to cheat on his wife. And he’s a pig for doing so. And it seems Miranda’s choice is to continually pick men who are married to other people. Now if you dont see the massive issue with that there is really nothing more to say.

    • oh-dear says:

      The commentary is on the habitual behaviour of someone. That pattern *is* completely on that person. This isn’t the first time Miranda has ended up with a married man. But to overlook the comments on the husband is disingenuous – there are plenty of comments that address both of their behaviour.

      • BaronSamedi says:

        So?

        It’s still on every single one of these men to actually pursue something with another woman. Sorry, but I don’t care how many married men she comes in contact with in a day – the choice to sleep with her is still always on them. A man is not another woman’s property that can be stolen.

      • Millenial says:

        Rumors on some of the country blogs are that she also ruined her former tour manager’s marriage (and he had kids). Rumors are rumors, but it was written up a few places towards the end of her marriage with Blake. If I were married to someone in country music, I’d be sure to steer them away from her.

    • Uglyartwork says:

      No one is calling for his head, no one is saying to put him in jail. He acted like a cruel shithead and we’re treating him like a cruel shithead.

    • Jane says:

      @ BaronSamedi

      Certainly, he has every right to leave a marriage, although I think that it very much matters how it’s done.

      There is nothing wrong with conducting one’s life with dignity and respect.

      Treating people the way you want to be treated is how mostly unselfish people see it.

      You sound very cold and flippant about a marriage ending in such manner.

      I hope it never happens to you.

      Hurting people is not right, regardless who does it.

      It takes two to “TANGO” and any human being that wants to cheat has to have a willing person to cheat with, so Miranda is as much responsible as Evan.

      You should know who you are having an intimate relationship with.

      Miranda might get hers one day, when she is 49 years old, married at home with three children, her youth is gone, fame disappears as new hot country blood takes over and her husband hooks up with a 25 year old.

      I don’t find her at all attractive, fake blond hair, huge face, that big head, sprayed tanned to oblivion…

      • BaronSamedi says:

        @ Jane I guess we’re going to have to agree to disagree.

        I believe in personal responsibility. People are free to make their own choices and I find it pretty disappointing to see so many women on here hold a fellow woman responsible for a man’s actions.

        It smacks of a lot of insecurity to be honest. There’s nothing wrong with that but then please just admit that you are lashing out at Miranda out of fear. Buying into the age old storyline that a man ‘just couldn’t help himself’ and that it is all the woman’s fault is just not something I personally am ever going to go along with.

      • Jane says:

        @ BaronSamedi

        Please kindly read my original comment properly.

        I’m holding them BOTH responsible, I definitely believe in personal responsibility, it takes two people to cheat.

        Evan can’t cheat on his wife with himself and it seems that Miranda was a willing participant and not the first time either from what I’ve read.

        Evan made a commitment to his wife and cheated on her with Miranda.

        If he wanted to end his marriage, he has every right to do so, but he should have done it in a right way, hurting people is not right.

        And Miranda is culpable for hooking up with a married man, I’m sorry, but that’s wrong.

        I’m a proud feminist, but I will not excuse a disrespectful behavior, just because it happens to be a female behaving atrociously.

        She is an adult and should know right from wrong by now and it seems that she has done this before, I sense a pattern.

        Maybe that’s okay with some people, but it’s not with me.

        I do try to treat people the way I want to be treated, with respect and dignity.

        And please don’t talk to me about insecurities, you have no idea who I am.

      • Christin says:

        @Jane, spot on. I never understand why people cannot have empathy for the person who was cheated upon (somehow making them the person who is at fault). Respect is at the core of this situation.

        How this guy (or Miranda) thinks it’s OK to destroy a marriage in pursuit of someone else is beyond me. I don’t think it will last. Her track record, plus the fact he cannot know how she is (or vice versa) suggests it won’t.

      • ASHBY says:

        @ Jane

        I could not agree with you more. It seems to me that Miranda behaved like a predator in this situation. The texting, the boundaries she crossed with her texts and the promises she made to him in regards to working together, it sounds like Miranda had a plan in her mind and Evan seems to be a kind of guy who was maybe thinking : oh look, greener pastures…
        They should be both culpable.

    • Veronica S. says:

      Look, the husband is a twat, no argument there. There’s falling in love with a married men once – fine, okay, it happens. Life goes on. And then there’s a repeated pattern of behavior of doing it with no regard to who’s harmed in the fallout. She is not some dumb teenage girl screwing around with the cheerleader’s BF. She’s an adult woman with a massive public profile who keeps getting knowingly involved with married men. She’s an asshole. They can both can be assholes in this scenario for very different reasons. She knew what she was doing, and so did he. Let’s not blame women for men’s actions, but let’s not infantilize them, either.

      • lucy2 says:

        Well said. I firmly blame this guy for dumping his wife (after three days on tour!?!?) but we can’t pretend Miranda is a saint in all this. That instagram photo is really, really telling.

    • Courtney says:

      If you ever end up in a Planned Parenthood getting tested for STD’s and end up losing a pregnancy, you may have different feelings about cheating and marriage.

  21. Workdog says:

    We know someone who was on Nashville Star with her; let’s just say NONE of this is a surprise.

    And,yeah, it is ultimately the married person’s responsibility but she has culpability as to the way she doesn’t give a flip about others that can be hurt, as long as she gets what she wants.

    Not a good look..nope.

  22. HeyThere! says:

    Well when she is finished with him and over it in 3 weeks to 3 months….his wife can hopefully have some satisfaction.

    When is her career ever going to take a hit from all this?! Seems strange. Also, she didn’t make him do anything he didn’t want to! She offered….he accepted it. He’s a garbage person but she still shouldn’t be offering anything up to a married man.

    • Gigi LaMoore says:

      I would like the wife to keep moving and never look back. He is not worth thinking about ever again. Not even to gloat.

    • NotTodaySatan says:

      She isn’t a minister. Her career isnt founded in moral standards. Why should her career take a hit ? Does this change her voice or her song writing talents?

      Do the careers of cheating basketball players take a hit? No and we never even raise it as a question.

      And really…..do the careers of (plenty of) cheating actors / actresss?

      Nope.

      This supposition that her career should be impacted really bugs me. It feels sexist and selective,

      • Tulip Garden says:

        His career should take a hit too. There, fair.

      • HeyThere! says:

        I believe her career should take a hit just like I believe any garbage mans career should take a hit. Male or female, I don’t care. She’s shitty, he’s shitty.

      • NotTodaySatan says:

        I’m just saying I can point you to dozens of cheating entertainers and athletes, and this concept that their career should take a hit for cheating hasn’t really come up. Oh they’ve been called names and trash talked…..but nope, no suggestion that their career should suffer.

        But it has repeatedly on these Miranda Lambert posts. Yep I think there’s something to that.

  23. Tig says:

    Forget the vagina of doom BS- the money quote(if true) is the tipper. He wants the $$$ and just occurred to him- if I dump her NOW, any music writing royalties will be all mine.
    Staci, send Miranda a fruit basket-she’s done you a favor. And I’m willing to bet he’ll be dumping the band after the tour is over.

  24. Reef says:

    This man really left his wife of 1.5 years in 2 weeks. Just throw the whole man away and start over Nelson.

  25. MetalheadMollie says:

    My sister is friends with Evan. His marriage was rocky before he met Miranda, but he’s nothing if not an opportunist. Miranda flirted with him from the word go and he saw an opportunity to get notoriety and recognition. Evan wants his band to be famous, but this whole debacle is going to have the opposite effect. It’s unfortunate because his band is actually very good, and could have eventually succeeded on their own merits.

      I tell ya…the way people project their relationships on social media versus reality can be SO different…

      • HeyThere! says:

        Mela, i couldn’t agree more! I have found the more PDA posts the worse the relationship is behind closed doors. Not always true thought but it happens a lot.

      • jjva says:

        For real. I was over looking at her instagram and it is one of the lovey-dovey-est things I have ever seen. Like who do you need to sell this relationship to, lady? If it’s good just let it be good. I feel bad for her but I think she dodged a bullet here.

  26. Shannon says:

    Miranda doesn’t get any pats on the back from me. Even though the married party is ultimately at full fault, personally I couldn’t bring myself to mess with a married man. But honestly, my opinion is that if it happened in such a short period of time, he was gonna cheat with someone. If it’s any consolation to the wife, she’s probably going to treat him the way he deserves to be treated. Sometimes the woman who “steals” your man is doing you a favor, it’s just impossible to realize it at the time.

    • mela says:

      I mean really? I doubt Miranda was promising him any committment after 3 days….he left his wife after 3 days?!??!

      This guy probably knew he shouldn’t have married Staci in the first place and took the first out he saw. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s cheated on Staci before because this seemed VERY easy for him. Coward.

      Staci is lucky she isn’t going to waste one more day of youth on him.

      • Shannon says:

        Right? I mean, I doubt Miranda is going to marry this dude and set him up for life financially. She thought she’d try for a cute dude and have some fun – this won’t be permanent, and he doesn’t have enough going for him to look like anything but an ass. I do listen to country music and pay some attention to Miranda Lambert. She’s known for doing a lot of kind things and she has a big name already. He went ‘cheater’ straight out of the gate. Bad move, dude. Miranda will be fine, I’m not sure he will.

  27. Bailie says:

    Trashy people behave trashy way.
    He is a piece of work, if he didn’t want to be married any longer for whatever reason, he should have been honest with his wife.
    And Miranda should stop chasing married man, it might happen to her one day.

    • Shannon says:

      ^^^this. I laughed at the part about him being honest and willing to own up to his mistakes. Honest people willing to own up to their mistakes don’t ghost their spouses. He’s a dirtbag, let Miranda have her way and she’ll toss him out or cheat on him – or both.

      • Bailie says:

        @ Shannon

        I said ” he should have been honest ” and not that ” he was honest “.

        They are both responsible, Evan was married and Miranda is after married guys, because she got some issues, she doesn’t seem to wanna admit/work on.

        It takes two to cheat, I’m pretty sure that Evan didn’t hold a gun to Miranda’s head, so she would sleep with him, she knew what she was getting herself into.

        She is not a teenager…

      • Shannon says:

        I wasn’t referring to what you said, but what was said in the excerpt from the article.

  28. Patty says:

    Seriously. No man ever dumped his wife for a woman he went on a three day tour with. The Felkers were married for less than two years; it’s pretty obvious that he didn’t want to be married and was looking for an out.

    A man cheats because he wants to. A man leaves a marriage because he wants to. A man that is committed to his wife/partner/spouse/marriage doesn’t entertain nonsense and certainly doesn’t ghost said partner/wife/spouse. I know plenty of married men who shut down flirtatious women all the time, it’s not that hard to say “I’m married, I’m committed to my marriage” and let someone know they need to stay in their lane. Men who don’t do that, make that choice, because they aren’t committed. A man committed to his partner does not do what Evan Felker did.

    Evan Felker is the reason he ghosted his own wife, because Evan Felker sounds like a trash person. Miranda Lambert is just a convienent excuse and a way for him to avoid taking full responsibility for what he did.

    • BaronSamedi says:

      First response on here I have read that didn’t make me shudder with echoes of some serious mysoginy.

      It’s amazing how the claws will immediately come out when women smell another woman they can blame for a man’s behaviour.

      Like you said: It’s not that hard to shut it down if you want to. Idris Elba could be standing in front of me naked as the day he is born and it would still be on ME when I decide to cheat on my husband with him.

      • mela says:

        Yeah I agree…this all seemed VERY easy for the husband to do. Maybe he was already planning on leaving and never coming back from the tour whether he slept with Miranda or not..He’s should have been honest with his wife instead.

        Kinda shocked to hear they were trying for a baby.

      • OriginalLala says:

        Miranda was also cheating on her partner when she boned Evan, let’s not forget that. He is an asshole for cheating on his wife, and she is an asshole for cheating on her partner.

      • Tulip Garden says:

        @Reality Bites,
        I agree. This isn’t about blaming women for the behavior of men. It is about everyone being responsible for their own behavior. Both of these two people are trash for their own actions.

      • NYCTYPE says:

        @ BaronSamedi : Miranda needs to be held accountable a bit less than Evan, because he made a commitment to his wife not Miranda. But I’m not giving a pass to Miranda for her part in the cheating or because she is a woman, he is clearly responsible for his actions, but so is Miranda, they were two people here involved in cheating. I don’t care about their gender,I care about their character. Everyone should be accountable regardless of their gender. Feminism shouldn’t erase culpability.

      • DP says:

        They are clearly both selfish a-holes… why are you so defensive of Miranda?

      • Barcelona says:

        Sorry, but this is not about gender or feminism. they both need to take responsibility for the affair, I think Evan is a bit more culpable, since he was the married one. Although I still hold Miranda accountable, because she went after a married man. Actions have consequences. Miranda should not be going after man in committed relationships and Evan should have separated from his wife before falling into Miranda’s bed. It’s tacky, cheap and plain wrong.

      • Magnum says:

        @ BaronSamedi
        Not everything is about misogyny, I think that Lambert is as much responsible for her actions as Felker is. It’s called personal responsibility. He didn’t cheat on his own, did he? Yes, he is married to Staci Felker and not Lambert, but she knew that he was a married man and didn’t mind sending him flirty texts, right??? I really don’t think that’s appropriate. Miranda needs to think about boundaries!!!!!!!!!

    • Jayna says:

      Her husband is to blame for treating his wife in such a horrible way and leaving her in a despicable manner. He was married to her. He is o blame. No one is saying different. We are commenting on her more because she’s the famous one, not the wife and hardly the husband, and she has her own part in this saga. But no one is denying what a scumbag he was for treating someone who loved him, his wife, in such a horrible and cowardly way.

      Miranda went after him. She chose him to open for her, calling him personally, and immediately began flirting, throwing out bait about writing with her before she had even met him.. Miranda is to be blamed for going after a married man. And it’s evident she did. Bored Miranda seeks out a band to open for her because she found the singer hot and decided she would like to get with him, even dangled songwriting with her. And him having a wife was just a pesky detail. Plus, she cheated on her boyfriend she was getting tired of.

      Both are held accountable for different reasons. As DP says, they are both clearly selfish assholes. You keep defending Miranda because you are an uber fan. I get it. But let’s call it like it is. She has a pattern. One of the affairs on Blake was supposedly a married man that worked for her, an agent or something. I’m beginning to believe she did go after Eric Church, who is married, and tried to dangle how big they would be together. The way she went for this guy now leads a lot of credence to other stories. It wasn’t like they were on a long tour and developed feelings.

      These two deserve each other. She will get tired of this bad publicity and lose interest and move on to a bigger fish. He stays looking like the douche he is, and his career is no bigger.

    • Tamz says:

      Well said, Patty!

  29. smee says:

    “The reason why” is he broke his vows and has questionable morals.

  30. Cara says:

    In life, it doesn’t always work and isn’t always cute to say “I just do what I want!” Come on lady, you are messing with people’s lives!! I know it takes two, but clearly she gets off on getting men that are taken. I don’t know her of course, but she seems like a spoiled brat with daddy issues. Get your own man!!!

    • mela says:

      Yeah one source claims they were trying for a baby. I believe they were having problems and also trying for a baby. Staci is lucky she isn’t knocked up by a cheater. He basically never got on his return flight home and wouldn’t take her calls. How COLD is that?!

      • Sophia's side eye says:

        That’s is so damn cowardly of him. I hope Staci ends up realizing she dodged a bullet.

  31. HelloSunshine says:

    Imagine your marriage is already rocky (I truly believe for a situation like this to play out like it did, something was already off) and then your husband ghosts you and suddenly you’re having to deal with that on top of tabloids reporting on it and stuff. How miserable and embarrassing. I feel for her.
    Her husband is scum and so is Miranda. He up and left his wife with no issues and we all know how Miranda feels about married men.

  32. MarineTheMachine says:

    You can not steal someone who didn’t want to be stolen in the first place. Staci Nelson will eventually realize she is the lucky one in this scenario… Freed from a manipulative husband after 2 years! On a superficial note : she is so charming and I can’t wait to see who she dates next!

  33. Veronica S. says:

    “Sorry, baby, I need to go perform songs with this woman I’m blatantly flirting so you can feel like shit while I’m gone but it’s okay because WE NEED THE MONEY BABY.” LOL, what an absolute c*nt. Oh, Staci girl, don’t worry. You got the better deal here where the long term investment is concerned.

    I’m not one of those people who likes to blame women for their role in an affair, but JFC Miranda Lambert. Get your shit together. There’s being a mess, and then there’s a pattern of behavior that people can’t overlook.

  34. First wife says:

    My former husband married a woman whose nickname was “the husband shopper”. She worked for the same company as he. She was out of her second marriage looking for her sugar daddy, and my rotten apple fell right in her lap. After she stalked him for about 5 years, lol. Now the nasty troublemaker is married to a formerly good looking man, whose alcoholism is evident in his shiny, red bloated face. Some people just deserve each other, lol!

  35. Immy says:

    Sounds a lot like the whole Julia Roberts – Danny Moder – Vera Moder situation!

    • Christin says:

      I thought the same thing! If you substitute phone calls for texts, and weeks/months instead of days, then you have their story.

  36. DP says:

    The husband is to blame for destroying his marriage. He sounds like a weak, selfish a-hole!
    Also, there is something very wrong with Miranda! Why would she actively pursue married men and cheat on her boyfriends over and over?! Is she a narcissist? Is she working out some kind of childhood issue? I
    And to rub it in the wife’s face with Instagram posts?! How awful!

    • JP says:

      Wouldn’t be surprised if e’s a serial cheater who just found a better place to land for awhile. They probably were “trying for a baby”. Narcissists have kids all the time doesn’t stop them from their constant lies and betrayals.

  37. Linds says:

    My bff is one of those women that just draws people to her. We’ve literally made a list before of all of the men that are obsessed with her and follow her around like puppy dogs. We work together and the amount of married men that openly tell her they have a crush on her or want to take her out is insane. My friend is a beautiful woman who doesn’t act on it though like Miranda does. Literally all she does is just give these guys the time of day. If they talk to her, then she’ll talk back. She doesn’t flirt or take them up on their offers, and will even remind them that they have wives. For so many men, I think they just have these fragile egos that need to be stroked constantly, so while their wives might be over that game, they’ll come across another girl who is nice to them and laughs at their dumb jokes and it makes them feel special and they just eat that up.

    • Naddie says:

      My bff is just the same thing. Before feminism I used to somewhat blame her for being too avaliable or smiley to them, but now I see that the problem is on them, who take any chance on a woman who’s simply being nice. Not saying my friend is not charming in her own right, but men are really little boys with fragile egos.

  38. Rebecca says:

    Reminds me of my ex step mother-in-law. Same thing minus the car running over (I think). She was married 8 times and was a born again judgmental christian.

  39. Boop says:

    Reminds me of an actress who went after a married actor, but said actress is worshipped here

  40. MoAnne says:

    They both seem like such nasty people. When the relationship goes kaput–and YOU KNOW it will–I bet the fireworks will be equally spectacular. Nothing like nasty, narcissistic people breaking up. It’s a tabloid wet dream.

  41. Truthie says:

    I like my country music stars to have country music lives. It should be tax deductible since it’s inspiration! Miranda is the Elizabeth Taylor of country – deeply talented, goes through men like tissues, and doesn’t give a horse’s patoot who she carries on with.

  42. what's inside says:

    Oh, Miranda, that light coming at you is attached to a Karma locomotive of gigantic proportions. Evan will move on to the next woman and the next and the next…..
