People: Blake Shelton ‘put Miranda in his rear view mirror long ago’

Miranda Lambert is newly married to a younger guy, an NYPD cop. It’s a mess, because she’s a mess. She’s a salad-tossing, steakhouse-beefing homewrecker and the men who fall for her are just as bad. Speaking of, Blake Shelton famously left his first wife for Miranda, enjoyed years of being one half of country music’s golden couple, then abruptly divorced her. It’s no secret that Blake and Miranda didn’t end well, nor is it a secret that they still aren’t on good terms. Reportedly, Miranda didn’t give Blake a heads up on her marriage. And reportedly, he doesn’t care:

Blake Shelton isn’t giving his ex-wife Miranda Lambert’s new marriage any attention. According to a source close to the country star, the singer has fully moved on with his life after the couple filed for divorce more than three years ago.

“He put Miranda in his rear view mirror long ago. Miranda brings nothing positive to his life,” says the source. “Their marriage ended and he moved on. Ever since, he is grateful every day.”

Shelton, 42, instead is focusing on his own happiness — including life with longtime girlfriend Gwen Stefani, 49. “Blake is crazy about Gwen, and all he sees are hearts in his eyes every day,” says the source.

I want to believe Blake doesn’t even think about Miranda, but I don’t think that’s true. As we saw last year when Blake tweeted about “karma,” he’s still got some hate in his heart. I also believe that Miranda is the reason why Blake hasn’t married Gwen Stefani. Gwen clearly wants to marry Blake and Gwen has wanted that for YEARS now. He’s the one who’s gun-shy.

Speaking of, before Miranda announced her surprise wedding over the weekend, “sources” told Us Weekly that Blake and Gwen “are on the path to getting married” but “there are obstacles they have to deal with.” Those obstacles apparently involve their living arrangements – Blake spends half his time in Oklahoma, and Gwen is fully based in LA. Sources also claimed that Blake and Gwen have already “met with her priest for a counseling session.” Yay, competing weddings.

    Haha, I know it’s not intentional but the line break on the headline just cracked me up: “People: Blake Shelton ‘put Miranda in his rear”

    No need to read the next line, really.

  2. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Nah you can have your ex in your “rear view mirror” and still hate their guts. Those two things aren’t mutually exclusive.

    • Jadedone says:

      I once heard a line in a song that said “the opposite of love is indifference” and I think that’s very true. If he is truly over her he wouldn’t care about her at all.

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        That quote is a load of crap IMO. The opposite of love is in fact hate. You can think someone is a sh*tty person and not have any residual feelings for them.

      • escondista says:

        love and hate are opposites – but love and indifference are opposites as well; one is an opposing feeling and the other is an opposing intensity.

        Hate is love’s wound, i think. You don’t really hate someone unless you once loved them (to love is to trust) or they hurt or threaten someone you love.

      • Sojaschnitzel says:

        escondista: I surely hate Trump with a passion and trust me, I never loved that guy. So.. no. That doesn’t make sense.

      • escondista says:

        @Sojaschnitzel read the other part of that sentence: …or they hurt or threaten someone you love.

        You don’t randomly hate D Trump. You hate him because he threatens someone you do love.

    • me says:

      lol love it.

      yeah my physically abusive lying cheating gas lighting ex? yeah he is my past….but F him.

      I think part of recovering from toxic abusive people like Miranda and the trauma they inflict on you.. is having the strength to stop making excuses for them and see them for who they are – crappy people. You can be moved on but still acknowledge on an intellectual level your ex is and was a horrible person.

      • whitecat says:

        Agreed with me. Especially in this industry, it’s not hard to hear of news. My ex was a lying cheating toxic and terrible person all around. I have no desire to ever interact with him ever again. But if someone brings him up, no I am not playing polite diplomacy.. that doesn’t mean I check in on him, and he is completely my past.

  3. rose says:

    People magazine is so full of cringe lately.

  4. Christin says:

    And that “rear-view” relationship allegedly torpedoed his first marriage, to his high school sweetheart who supported his early career.

    • me says:

      Was she already on this downward spiral when she met Blake?

      She seems to have hit the gas pedal on the train wreck train ever since they broke up. Each story about her gets worse and worse. She will end up dead or in jail at this rate.

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        Yeah she tried to be the “good girl” for him when they got together. But Miranda is definitely an out of sight out of mind type of person and while she and Blake were apart due to tours, work, etc she cheated on him. A leopard can’t change it’s spots. I think what Blake did cheating on his ex was terrible. But I also think he genuinely fell in love with Miranda and it’s why he threw away so much to be with her. And I also think it’s why Miranda was blind-sided when he left her. She’s the one used to doing the leaving and dumping.

      • Hmmm says:

        Hmm never got the good girl vibe from Miranda. She tries to sell the bad ass vibe tho which I’m buying.

  5. Millennial says:

    I protest them being labeled as country musics golden couple. That title is reserved for Tim and Faith (he had his own share of problems for a while). Blake and Miranda were runner up for a while, though

    • Tiffany says:

      And….wasn’t Faith married when they first met and he started pursuing her.

      The music world is just one big old mess of gossip. HA !!!!!

      • Usedtobe says:

        @Tiffany…my recollection of the Faith/Tim early relationship rumors was that he wasn’t ready to settle down and she being a good God-fearing Christian just couldn’t let him go and got knocked up to keep him.
        NOT saying it’s true and not saying he didn’t love her since he’s still there and so is she despite his issues, just saying that was what I remember of when they first got together. I had never heard or even looked into the fact that she may have been married…hmmmm

      • Christin says:

        Seems like she had an earlier marriage that ended around the time she started dating a music producer. She was engaged to the producer when she met Tim. And I think Tim was dating someone, too.

      • Millenial says:

        Faith was engaged to a music producer when Tim and Faith went on tour together — they basically got started on tour and she broke it off with the producer to date Tim. Tim’s had problems with alcohol and there have been long-standing rumors of cheating (on his part) but overall, they seem stable and committed. I’d be shocked if they ever called it quits (same with Garth and Trisha…which also started sketchily).

      • Kebbie says:

        I had no idea Faith Hill had a previous marriage until I read these comments. Hill is actually the last name of her first husband! Her maiden name is Perry. She divorced him and then was engaged to someone else and left her fiancé for Tim.

  6. Michelle says:

    I’m sorry but I do not see these two getting married. I feel like he is going to dawdle around too long and she is going to get tired of it and just end the whole thing. If he doesn’t want to get married, that is fine but I hope he would have told her from the get-go so she would not be thinking all this time that they were going to get married. Hope I am dead wrong..

    • DS9 says:

      Given Gwen’s history, I don’t think this is true. She has shown that she can wait a looooong time if she’s in love with someone. If Blake treats her well and continues to lavish her with love and attention, she’ll be with him until he jacks something up.

      Gwen loves long and hard.

      And I doubt he’s stringing her along either. You can be in love with someone, be committed, and still be gunshy about marriage in general, especially if you were married to someone who talked a lot of talk and then at least to you, got crazy after you put a ring on it.

      What happened between Blake and Miranda has clearly cast a long shadow on them both

      • Hmmm says:

        Does he want kids of his own? I was shocked to read he’s actually not 50 or older.

        I don’t think Gwen can give him his own natural babies and that’s what those d-bag conservative types are all about. Spreading their seed.

    • Yes Doubtful says:

      Gwen was with Tony for 7 years begging for marriage and babies – then he dumped her. Gwen was with Gavin for 6 years begging for marriage and babies – until he finally gave in and cheated on her all over the place. Gwen has been with Blake nearing on 4 years with no marriage in sight. Gwen can and will wait a long time. Personally, I think it’s a good idea that Blake is waiting until he’s ready. He has been married and divorced twice before the age of 40. I don’t believe for one second that he doesn’t care that Miranda got married. I’m sure he scoffed at it. Gwen and Blake hate their exes and that’s what bonds them.

      • DS9 says:

        If Blake wanted babies, he would have had them by now. He could have picked up any old blond bobble head and got some babies like Jason Aldean did.

      • Millennial says:

        Well Jason Aldean already had two babies with wife #1 (who supported his career for years) and then he cheated on her with wife #2 and had two more babies.

  7. Lizzie says:

    why is poor gwen being dragged into this?

    • Tigger says:

      Exactly, because she is click-bait. She also gets in the way of the fantasy of the ex-husband still pining for the ex-wife that every romance novel tries to set up, including Miranda’s publicist.

  8. Svea says:

    The talk in Nashville was that Miranda cheated on Blake and he was totally blindsided. His abrupt divorce filing and bitterness was because he found out he was a cuckkold and everyone in Nashville knew it except for him. Everyone knows about Gavin Rossdale’s cheating. Gwen has said many times that she and Blake bonded over having had the same experience. Not to hard to figure out that this means having had a spouse cheat on them for a long time with everyone else but them knowing. That lovely combination of hurt and feeling betrayed with a nice big dose of humiliation mixed in.

  9. Fluffy Princess says:

    I don’t know why they think that Black and Miranda still talk–at all. He’s been loved up with Gwen and her boys for years now with no bumps in the gossip roadway. Why would he look back?

    Odd note: Right after this salad tossing news popped up, I was watching an old episode of Project Runway–and Miranda Lambert was the guest judge. I laughed, at the coincidence. The odd part was one of the dresses they designed for her, apparently had a real, “Gwen Stefani” type vibe to it. HAHAHAHAHAHA! I couldn’t help but be in awe of the “foreshadowing.”

  10. Helen says:

    “He put Miranda in his rear view mirror long ago. Miranda brings nothing positive to his life,” says the source. “Their marriage ended and he moved on. Ever since, he is grateful every day.”

    i am so grateful for all this amazing gossip!!

    • Hmmm says:

      He sounds like an a-hole. Miranda was the talent in that relationship.

      • Tigger says:

        More like the poison. Her only talent is trying to hide what is really going on right now.

      • Hmmm says:

        Huh? Well tell us what’s really going on? Spill the tea

        She does have the talent. Blake doesn’t have the best voice. I’m not even big on country but I think Miranda’s Voice is nice.

      • Hmmm says:

        Never mind I just read the other thread. Lmao I thought she married the musician she was dating after Blake. Come to find out she married some random shady NYPD cop. Well, hope she got a prenup

  11. Hmmm says:

    And? Why is her happy moment about Blake? He’s a dirtbag cheater anyway. I’m happy for Miranda.

  12. Velvet Elvis says:

    By all accounts he hasn’t even spoken to her in about 4 yrs, so not sure why people try to keep the Blake/Miranda saga going in the media.

  13. jules says:

    haha, the headline sounds like the title of the next country hit song from Blake.

  14. Loca says:

    Blake and Gwen are a showmance. Not sure I really believe Blake on not thinking about Miranda but I believe they both cheated in marriage. No way is Blake faithful. I think its a matter of time before Gwen and Blake publically go there separate ways. Anyhow I think Miranda is desperate to be loved. Unfortunately I have divorced friends that do this as well go for the taken man. All I can say is really low self esteem and feel the guy “cares” only for them. A guy will hook up with as many as a woman will let them.

  15. Patty says:

    I don’t believe him. From my experience, people who have truly moved on from their ex’s don’t feel the need to point out that they’ve moved on nor do they comment on what’s happening with their ex or in the life of their ex. As for Miranda, she cheats and likes cheaters but it’s a stretch to say she’s spiraling or that she’ll end dead or in jail. Truth is Miranda has always been Miranda; she hasn’t changed a bit and there is no downward spiral – it’s who she is.
