Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton divorce
The country powerhouses call it quits after four years of marriage
Oh no, another celebrity split! Country singer Miranda Lambert and The Voice judge Blake Shelton have divorced. The two married in 2011 after dating for six years. TMZ reports that Blake filed for divorce two weeks ago, but the documents were only approved yesterday.
"This is not the future we envisioned," said the couple in a joint statement. "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."
The split comes a month after Miranda and Blake were announced as the third couple on Forbes' Highest Paid Celebrity Couples list, right behind Beyoncé and Jay-Z.
