Miranda Lambert’s husband Brendan is taking a leave of absence from hot-copping

Miranda Lambert heads to dinner with husband Brendan McLoughlin in NYC

Miranda Lambert dropped a new single last week. The single is called “It All Comes Out in the Wash,” and you can hear the sh-t below. It’s awful. It’s a bad song, Miranda’s voice sounds particularly nasal, and the lyrics are just terrible. “You got frisky with your boss at the copy machine / You drunk dialed your ex-husband, don’t remember a thing…” Um-hm. I’m sure Miranda’s gotten frisky with a lot of bosses. Here’s the song:

Before the single dropped, Miranda used Brendan McLoughlin, her husband of about six months, to promote the song. She posted this video of shirtless Brendan doing laundry and you can see all the hashtags.

The vibe I’m getting is definitely that Miranda has gone for something new with this relationship – she’s always seemed very controlling, but she’s taken it to a new level with Brendan. She’s the sugar mama to this young, hot guy, and she wants to show him off. She wants to show off what she bought, basically. Which also means that Brendan’s “hot cop” days are on hold. How could Brendan work a full-time police job when Miranda needs him to sit around and amuse her? People reports that Brendan has taken a leave of absence from the NYPD.

Miranda Lambert‘s husband Brendan McLoughlin has taken a leave of absence from the New York Police Department, PEOPLE confirms. A representative with the NYPD’s Office of the Deputy Commissioner Public Information tells PEOPLE that “Police Officer Brendan McLoughlin is on an authorized leave of absence.”

“The Department has rules and procedures governing leaves of absence by members of the service and complies with applicable law,” the rep adds of McLoughlin’s time away from his job.

Though the NYPD could not discuss specifics of McLoughlin’s situation, officers can take leaves for various reasons, many of which are personal in nature.

What do you think? Do you think it really is a temporary thing so that Brendan can, like, travel with Miranda and hang out while she’s on a promotional tour? Or do you think he’ll quit his job at some point soon because Miranda is his sugar mama? Messy, so messy.

    Well well, well.

    The messiness continues.

    I think the leave will be permanent and he will try his hand at modeling.

    His face isnt the best but his body is banging.

    • Talie says:

      He will definitely try to beak into modeling – although he’s probably been trying before he met her. I would say acting too, but his voice is a bit nasal.

    • Still_Sarah says:

      I agree that everyone saw this coming. He can’t live large with Miranda while having to report for the night shift in Brooklyn, driving around in his cruiser with the paps following. Maybe she will make him her “head of security” or something so that she has an excuse to give him money and have him follow her around.

      • Kebbie says:

        That’s what I was thinking, he’ll be made head of security for her. He’ll be around 24/7, with some semblance of being in charge because he’ll get to boss other people around. He won’t feel totally emasculated, but his entire life will revolve around her. He’ll have no time to cheat on her, for the time being. Eventually he’ll resent it and cheat, or she’ll tire of him and cut him loose or start cheating on him.

  2. Jess says:

    Am I terrible for half hoping he’s a gold digging troll and will break her heart and take lots of her money? I can’t stand cheaters, and she seems to get off on breaking up relationships and families. Normally I blame the guy 100%, but I think she does whatever she can to “win” these men.

    • Escondista says:

      No… comeuppance is awesome!

    • Kebbie says:

      She’d definitely deserve it, and he’s as reckless as she is with relationships. She’s so self-destructive though, it’s possible she drives this thing into the ground before he gets tired of being a kept man under her thumb.

    • minx says:

      I think she has a heart of stone so I don’t think it can be broken. I see her getting bored with him first. He’s too available now, there’s no danger. She has the upper hand so she’ll dump him.

  3. Esmom says:

    I can’t imagine how long the leave is or when he thinks it will be a good time to go back…so yeah, I see it as permanent.

    I laughed at the video where he said “really, come on?” while giving his abs an extra flex. He gave the faux annoyance schtick all he had.

  4. Ummmm says:

    They’ve lasted longer than I thought they would. Kudos to her.

  5. Millie says:

    Well I hope he’ll be doing something to get paid while on leave. Dude has a baby to support.

  7. Liz version 700 says:

    The country is a mess, the world is terrifying. But like death and taxes you can count on Miranda. She will give us messy messiness.

    He looks normalize in those pics (clothes wise) and she looks like she robbed a Forever 13 store

    • Ali says:

      Kaiser chose more flattering pics than the ones up on Lainey Gossip. She looks like she robbed a forgotten laundry basket over there.

      • Liz version 700 says:

        Oh dear Ali you are so correct. I think she dresses her emotional she instead of her actual age. The mess of these two is epic. I wonder if they will last a year?

    • Redgrl says:

      He also has Cristiano Ronaldo face going on.

  8. LadyT says:

    I really don’t like that level of groomed eyebrows on a man.

  9. Lynne says:

    Anther vote for modeling…..or acting in one of her videos with a hopes of a career

  10. CROWHOOD says:

    I think I have A soft spot for him because I too have a dramatic widows peak.

    • WingKingdom says:

      Maybe it’s because my first celeb crush was Joe Perry- I think widow’s peaks are awesome. My sister has one too and she looks amazing in a headband!

  11. ThEHufflepuffLizLemon says:

    I always think widows peaks look beautiful! I’m sure it’s annoying to style though.

  12. Victoria says:

    Why would he leave a job that has great benefits??? Unless he’s planning on retiring early? I agree with the others above, comeuppance and I hope he gives her hell.

    • tinyfencer says:

      Please. Boy didn’t marry her so he can work for a living.

    • see says:

      He makes 100,000 a year doing a dangerous job where he might be killed or targeted by people looking to sue him. She makes 100,000 playing 1 show. It’s not hard to understand.

  13. tw says:

    His Eddie Munster hair really bothers me. And she’s dumpy. That’s all I’ve got.

    • amilou says:

      I’m not going to knock his widow’s peak because I’ve got one, too. It’s not ideal, but I’m not a Kardashian who can just have my hairline lasered away. I’ve just always had bangs MY ENTIRE LIFE.


      As for her, her body looks fine, but she needs to shred her Rue 21 rewards card and dress for her age.

      • Lady D says:

        I’ve had bangs my whole adult life for the same reason. I stay quiet when the conversation on this site turns to fringes or bangs. They don’t get a lot of love:)

  14. Riley says:

    Weird move for her. It will be harder for her to cheat on him if he’s not working!

  15. la says:

    John Jay College of Criminal Justice professor and retired NYPD sergeant Joseph Giacalone speculated that the cop’s absence could be more about liability than living the high life.

    “It might be in his best interest to use the accrued time then ride off into the sunset,” Giacalone said. “As soon as someone knows you’re married to a celebrity, they’re going to be looking to sue you.”

  16. RoyalBlue says:

    This relationship seems to be existing on borrowed time with nowhere to go. I really hope they make it but I doubt it will last.

  17. Nev says:


  18. Nicole R says:

    …..is this a tide commercial?

  19. Guest says:

    They are messy. Their breakup will be worth the popcorn. Doesn’t he have a baby to support?

  20. lucy2 says:

    I’m shocked they’ve made it this long.

    I hope he is able to go back to his career when she inevitably gets bored and ditches him for some married guy.

  21. Jaded says:

    Remember Miranda…revenge is a dish best served cold.

  22. Christin says:

    His baby is only what, 8-9 months old(?), so maybe he’s taking parental leave.

    With each of them having a messy past, it will be interesting to see this play out. In other words, who will be the first to stray/leave.

  23. Severine says:

    My gaydar is pinging on him.

    • Ange says:

      I mean, dude had a baby with the woman he was cheating on his fiance with then he ran off with Miranda. If he’s gay he’s preeeeeetty committed to pretending otherwise with the ladies. So nah.

  24. Lisa says:

    This loa will become permanent and I am sure the breakup will be messy.

  25. Courtney says:

    Way to get out of paying child support dude.

  26. Bee says:

    Not feeling the hot from him, like at all. I think it’s because he looks like a mouth breather. LOL

    • Cara says:

      I agree, I’m not seeing it. He ‘s not completely unfortunate looking, but not “hot.” Plus, he dresses really bad!!

  27. whybother says:

    meh. dont pretend that you dont can see this coming from mile away. i just wonder why it taken him so long to do that?
    dude probably only become a cop because he is just whatever in terms of having skills in real life~
    the next thing we know, he’s modelling~

  28. Lensblury says:

    Her lips are pressed together so hard in two out of three different pictures… Here’s my take on it (wild guess): she’s already angry and unhappy. He looks much more relaxed and unconcerned in those pictures, so I’m going to guess he’s either taking a lot more control over how the relationship is going than she expected, or he’s way too random in his actions and not easily controllable. Either way, she looks like she’s not liking it at all. Like, she actually wants to be his Sugar Mama, but he’s not entirely subservient and cooperative. Maybe I’m wrong, but I see a ton of regret here.

  29. Dark and Stormy says:

    Lol “hot-copping”! What a life he’s having right now. Anyway if he wants to be someones boy-toy go for it. Hot chicks go for older wealthy dudes all the time.

  30. dahlia6 says:

    Dude is giving me Trump Jr. face vibes. I just can’t unsee it.
