News just broke yesterday that Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert were ending their four-year marriage, and now it is reportedly done. TMZ reports a judge has already signed off on the couple’s divorce documents making them each officially single.
Blake filed papers to divorce Miranda two weeks ago. Things were easily divided between the two superstars due to their prenuptial agreement.
There’s been rumor and speculation that Blake may have cheated on Miranda throughout the course of their marriage, but a source told People magazine that is definitely not the case. The source said, “Blake is just that incredibly loyal and dedicated husband. I can guarantee you he has been faithful to that woman.”
Regardless of the reason, Miranda was visibly upset during her performance on Saturday, July 18th, at Cheyenne Frontier Days in Wyoming. She was too emotional to sing “The House That Built Me,” so she asked her fans to sing it for her as she wiped tears from her eyes.
