Blake Shelton vs Miranda Lambert: Are These Exes About to Go to War?!

Blake Shelton has a lot going for him right now. He’s in a beautiful relationship with Gwen Stefani, whom he hopes to impregnate. Also he was somehow crowned People‘s “Sexiest Man Alive,” because it’s 2017 and reality doesn’t matter.

But he reportedly has one major point of conflict in his life, and it’s a very familiar face.

Just how bad is the feud between Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert?

Even though Blake Shelton recently said in a radio interview that he doesn’t “think we’re close to calling a wedding planner,” things are still going strong between the Country music star and pop icon Gwen Stefani.

But things are allegedly not going so well for Blake’s relationship with his ex.

According to Life & Style, a “new war” between Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton has “erupted, and it includes revenge songs, public digs and trash-talking to pals.”

This sounds interesting!

Their source claims that, even though they’ve both moved on romantically, neither has been able to entirely move past the wrongs done to them at the end of their relationship.

“There is still a lot of bad blood and unresolved anger between Blake and Miranda. No one thinks they will ever bury the hatchet and put their issues behind them.”

Life & Style‘s insider tells them that:

“A whole new era of warfare is starting for Miranda and Blake.”

That sure sounds dramatic, right?

Reportedly, a recent source of conflict between the two was, of all things, fallout over Garth Brooks lipsynching.

Miranda Lambert was critical of it. (Honestly, lipsynching is fine, but everybody’s entitled to their opinion)

“Blake was deeply hurt by the end of his marriage, and his anger resurfaced when he felt his ex was disrespectful.”

Specifically, disrespectful to Garth Brooks.

Life & Style goes on to describe how many of the descriptions that Blake Shelton has used to praise his relationship with Gwen Stefani 

“The exes’ mutual pals see those comments as a slam on Miranda.”

And, allegedly, Blake Shelton’s words get worse behind closed doors.

“He makes other slights in private.”

Well that sure doesn’t sound classy.

You’d think that Miranda Lambert would plan to retaliate with some well-placed barbs of her own, right?

Life & Style says that their sources indicate that Miranda has a line that she won’t cross.

“Revenge songs are where the war with Blake ends.”

In other words, they’re claiming that she has no plans to trash her ex on social media or in interviews.

She’ll just sing about it, which is really what we’re accustomed to from recording artists.

But … none of this comes directly from the stars. And all of these insiders are anonymous. Sometimes tabloids can be led in the wrong direction by somebody who really can’t read a room.

So how much of this is true?

According to Gossip Cop‘s sources close to Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, the two really aren’t that focused on each other.

And certainly aren’t planning to go to war.

We don’t know who’s right — sometimes, different friends and sources just see different sides of the same person, you know?

But we would prefer to think that, perhaps a few song lyrics aside, they’re happy enough with their lives now and their new partners that they don’t feel compelled to bash the other.


Miranda Lambert: Throwing Shade at Blake Shelton at the CMAs?!

It’s been over two years since Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert divorced, and by all accounts, the relationship between the two singers has remained mostly amicable.

These days, Miranda is engaged to Anderson East, and rumors about Blake and Gwen Stefani getting hitched seem to surface at the rate of about one per week.

But that doesn’t mean there’s never any bad blood between the former first couple of country.

And in the grand tradition of George Jones and Tammy Wynette, and every couple that’s ever broken up but continued to reside in the same trailer park, Blake and Miranda occasionally air their grievances publicly.

The 2017 Country Music Awards were held last night, and some folks think Miranda seized the opportunity to throw some shade at her ex.

Miranda was one of the night’s big winners, taking home the prize for Top Female Vocalist, and shining on the red carpet in one of this year’s most stylish ensembles.

But it was her performance of “To Learn Her” that made Miranda the talk of the ceremony.

Her soaring vocals gained the most attention on social media, but some fans tweeted about what they saw as a subtle shot fired against Blake Shelton.

One line in particular drew a good deal of attention, as many feel that Miranda sent a clear message by rolling her eyes when she delivered the line: 

“If you take her, you might hate her and be left with just a ray.”

Needless to say, it’s not hard to see how that line could be interpreted as low-key trash talk.

Of course, there’s also a chance that it was all in good fun.

As we said, the history of country music is filled with feuding lovers who mined their troubled relationships for song lyric material.

Hell, George and Tammy even recorded a few albums together!

We’d suggest Blake and Miranda do the same, but we’re not sure how that would go over with Gwen.

She strikes us as the type who’d like to leave the past in the past.


Blake Shelton: Refusing to Marry Gwen Stefani Because of Miranda Lambert?!

It’s been a tough year for true love, huh?

Come to think of it, it’s been a tough year for pretty much everything.

With divorces for couples like Chris Pratt and Anna Faris, Fergie and Josh Duhamel, we have to wonder if it’s even possible for two people to get together and stay together these days.

It’s depressing.

Even one of our go-to favorite couples, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton, seems to be struggling a bit these days.

Because even though you can’t get on the internet without hearing a rumor about the two of them having a baby or trying to have a baby or talking about having a baby, things may not be as good as you’d think between them.

And it’s all Miranda Lambert’s fault.

According to a source who spoke with Life & Style, Gwen and Blake are still in love and all that, but they won’t be getting married anytime soon because of how things went down between Blake and Miranda.

“Blake had hoped that time would ease the pain of the divorce and the betrayal he felt,” the source says, “but sadly, it just hasn’t.”

“To this day, Blake believes Miranda cheated on him. It just wounded his soul.”

This insider explains that although he knows Gwen is different, and although he and Gwen have been discussing getting hitched for a while now, “he’s still devastated” by his divorce.

“Blake has been honest with her lately about not being ready to tie the knot,” how tragic is that?

It could be worse though, because the source goes on to say that Gwen has similar thoughts about getting married — that perhaps it’s just not time yet.

Her reasons are the same as Blake’s, too — while there were a few reports that claimed that Miranda cheated on Blake, it was much more widely reported that Gwen left Gavin because he had an affair with their children’s nanny.

“Gavin’s betrayal of their marriage vows nearly destroyed her,” the source says. “Gwen has also realized over time that she doesn’t need to get married again.”

But before you go and get too upset at this development, know that although we may not see a wedding for these two anytime soon, there’s still a decent chance they could have a baby!

The source explains that “Blake and Gwen are committed to having a baby together. They just don’t want to get married.”

Which is fair, because marriage is a huge commitment, while having a baby with someone is a lot more chill … except there is no universe in which that logic makes sense.

If Gwen and Blake are just not worried about getting married, that’s one thing, but if they’re avoiding it because they’re scared of being hurt again?

Maybe slow down on all those baby efforts then, lovebirds.


Miranda Lambert: Blake Shelton Ruined My Life!

Sometimes, exes get along. Not so for Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton. Even two years later.

That might make great fodder for Country music, but their conflict and hurt feelings can’t be great for them, personally — even though they’re both moving on with their lives, careers, and new partners.

But Miranda Lambert has reportedly given a no-holds barred interview about exactly what she thinks of Blake and how he ended their marriage, and we have a little preview of that.

Before Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani started dating, before they became one of the most publicized couples in the entertainment industry, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert were a Country music power couple.

They weren’t the most widely reported on — Country music as a genre is usually in its own little world.

But since they were both big enough to have name-recognition by people who don’t consume Country music, they were both big deals on their own.

Together, they were unstoppable.

Until they stopped.

Both Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are alleged to have cheated on the other.

Gwen Stefani’s account of how she first began to bond with Blake Shelton says that it was after she shared with her costars that she and Gavin Rossdale had split — and she shared why they had split.

Blake had come up to her and revealed that he had been through the same thing.

Keep in mind that Gavin Rossdale reportedly had an affair with the couple’s nanny, which Gwen is said to have discovered after a personal message between Gavin and the nanny was synced to a tablet that she viewed.

Having only had one serious boyfriend before she married Gavin, Gwen Stefani is the sort who takes marriage very seriously. Some spouses might have worked on the relationship. A few would have just ignored it.

Not Gwen, though.

So if Blake alleged that Miranda Lambert had put him through something similar, then he accuses her of cheating.

There was fallout among their friends and among their Country music peers.

Even though Miranda Lambert and boyfriend Anderson East (Miranderson?) recently celebrated two years together — just last month! — it’s more than plausible that Miranda still has a lot of unresolved anger over how their split went down.

According to Life & Style, Miranda Lambert is speaking out — two years later — in a no-holds barred new interview.

As reported by their insider, she talks about how Blake wronged her during their breakup and how that impacts her to this day.

“Blake blindsided her with the divorce and drove her out of their home.”

Remember — her belongings were literally placed outside.

That might be a very dramatic or even funny or satisfying scene in a romantic comedy, but that’s not appropriate in real life.

“It hurt her badly and profoundly changed her outlook on life.”

That’s so sad, but unfortunately not surprising.

Love can change your life, but a bad breakup can totally transform how you see the world.

Oh, and remember how we mentioned that there was fallout from that split?

“She was painted as the villain. And a lot of their friends in the industry took his side.”

We look forward to hearing her interview in which she says that.

We wonder if (and hope that) it will make the fake friends who started treating Miranda Lambert differently squirm in their seats a little differently, you know?

These days, at least, they’re moving on.

If the latest reports are to be believed, Miranda Lambert and Anderson East may elope rather than plan an elaborate wedding.

That could happen as early as this winter, during the holiday season.

There are theories that they might be racing towards marriage so that they can beat Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani to the punch.

And with hint after hint that Blake and Gwen want to tie the knot, including Blake Shelton’s new song that’s all about weddings, Miranda and Anderson will need to race against the clock if they want to reach that milestone first.


Lin-Manuel Miranda Slams Trump for Attacking San Juan Mayor, ‘You’re Going Straight to Hell’

“Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda blasted Donald Trump for his Twitter attack on San Juan’s mayor … bluntly telling the Prez he’s got a clear path to hell waiting for him. Miranda’s comments come in response to Trump saying San Juan’s mayor…


Miranda Lambert and Anderson East: Racing to Marry Before Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton?!

Well … this is nuts.

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani seem to be close to tying the knot. Blake Shelton’s recent song was all about marriage, which … is not subtle at all.

But in the race between exes to actually tie the knot, it looks like Miranda Lambert intends to win. By any means necessary.

Have you ever heard one of those romance stories (probably in a movie) where a couple breaks up but they both meet new people and end up being way happier because of it?

Life … rarely works out that way.

But sometimes people who seemed like a solid match aren’t so well-suited for each other.

And sometimes they do both move on and find new people.

The trouble, of course, is that real life has rebound relationships.

That’s a real thing — not just something that bitter exes call someone’s new datemate. You get out of a long-term, serious relationship and suddenly you miss the companionship and affection and convenient sex. So you find someone right away, just to fill that void.

That thirst for a rebound is how Kylie Jenner got pregnant at 19. (She only just turned 20, folks)

In the case of Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, they both ended up in serious relationships that have now lasted for a couple of years.

Blake Shelton’s relationship with costar Gwen Stefani — who had just gotten out of her marriage after reportedly being cheated on — has been more widely publicized.

In part because they’re costars on The Voice. In part because Gwen Stefani is a mainstream musician, and Country music exists in its own little world.

Miranda Lambert hooked up with fellow Country singer Anderson East, who we should note is ever-so-slightly younger than she is. They only recently celebrated two years together.

So … which of them is going to be the first to tie the knot?

According to InTouch Weekly‘s source, Miranda Lambert and Anderson East may just elope.

That’s not the sort of celebrity wedding that you’d expect.

Especially not when the woman in the couple is so well known that even non-Country fans recognize her name.

Reportedly, Miranda and Anderson had been looking at a “countrypalooza-type wedding.”

It would have had performances from their favorite Country stars (who are also their friends) and been a whole production.

Like a Hollywood wedding, but maybe in Tennessee or something.

But now … plans have changed.

“They are pushing to run away and elope by year’s end.”

October starts on Sunday, so year’s end is three months away.

“They’ll make time during the holidays to elope and have a honeymoon.”

That’s so soon!

Not inappropriately soon. They’ve been seeing each other for two years. So, you know, that’s fine.

But … we have to wonder what’s motivating this.

It’s not like “Miranderson” is especially camera-shy or publicity-shy or whatever.

So a big wedding wouldn’t be out of the question.

Are they concerned about their guest list feeling conflicted because of ties to Blake Shelton?

It’s also possible — and we’re just speculating, here — that Miranda Lambert has had enough with Blake and Gwen’s massively publicized relationship, and that she doesn’t want to read about them getting married when she and Anderson haven’t exchanged vows yet.

That might not be the healthiest reason, if it’s her motivation.

But elopements are a hell of a lot easier to plan than weddings.

Elopements are also cheaper — no matter how rich you are or how fancy your elopement might be.

(Well … not if you elope into space, but that’s not a thing quite yet)

We’re always leery of rumors of elopement.

Like, sometimes people make offhanded remarks about how they’d rather elope than keep planning their wedding.

Just because a friend takes it seriously and leaks it doesn’t mean that the bride or groom was doing anything more than venting or fantasizing.

On the other hand, there’s a lot to be said about eloping.

Many consider big weddings to be a wasteful industry — even when rich people do it.

So maybe Miranda and Anderson have the right idea.

But even if they’re planning to tie the knot in only three months, there’s still a chance that crazy-in-love Gwen and Blake might beat them to the altar.

We’ll see.
