UPDATE: Monday July 20, 2015 (8:46 p.m. ET) The country couple, Blake Shelton And Miranda Lambert, have wrapped up their divorce hours after the announcement.
A source confirmed to US Weekly that the divorce papers that were delivered to a judge two weeks ago pertaining to the marriage of Lambert, 31, and Shelton, 39, were signed today, ending their marriage of four years.
According to TMZ, Miranda Lambert’s emotions got the better of her over the weekend while performing a song given to her by Blake Shelton.
Originally written for Blake, “The House That Built Me”; was passed on to Miranda to record and became a big hit for her. Performing at the Cheyenne Frontier Days in Wyoming, Lambert broke down on stage and had to ask the audience to help finish the song.
It is a sad day for the country music community.
After 4 years of marriage, superstar couple Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are reportedly divorcing. In a joint statement released through their reps to The Associated Press, the couple say, “This is not the future we envisioned. And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real families, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter.”;
While details surrounding the split are spotty, TMZ is reporting the couple filed for divorce a while ago, and a judge is expected to end their marriage today.
The papers were filed by Shelton in Oklahoma, but unlike other celebrity breakups, the financial arrangements have already been worked out due to the prenup the couple signed.
Of those arrangements, “The Voice”; coach will get the ranch in Oklahoma, while Lambert will get the family home in Nashville. The outlet also reports that the “Little Red Wagon”; singer has been moving her animals, which include horses, a camel and a llama, off the ranch.
Shelton and Lambert married in 2011 and jokingly tweeted about divorce rumours in 2013.
