Country music power couple Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert’s divorce is expected to be finalized on Monday, according to TMZ. Shelton reportedly filed in Oklahoma.
The website reports:
Our sources say he will get the ranch in Oklahoma and she’ll get the family home in Nashville. Our sources say Miranda has been moving her show animals — horses, a camel and a llama — off the ranch in the last few days.
The couple says, “This is not the future we envisioned and it is with heavy heart that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real family, friends, and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter.”
Shelton had previously gotten a divorce from his first wife, Kaynette Williams, after meeting and allegedly falling in love with Miranda Lambert in 2005.
“That was easily the toughest thing that I’ve been through. I put my divorce up there with my brother’s death. That was a tough, tough call to make,” he said in an interview with 60 Minutes.
In that same interview, Shelton spoke to divorce rumors about him and Lambert that have been circulating for some time.
“We try so hard to keep people’s focus on what we do and not on our marriage,” he said. “It’s almost impossible to do that. Why open that door any further than it already is open? All we’ve got left that’s private is she and I, and our home, and we want to keep it that way.”
