Blake Shelton Dishes on Lambert Divorce: ‘We’re Buddies’

Blake Shelton has finally opened up about his surprise divorce from Miranda Lambert. During an interview on the Bobby Bones Show on Sept. 23, Shelton openly discussed their surprise separation.

“In Oklahoma, it happens so fast. Like, Miranda and I didn’t have any kids, and we had a pre-nuptial agreement, whatever we had,” Shelton explained. “Once we filed for divorce, it was over in, like, I think it was like a nine or ten day waiting period until it’s over.”

The 39-year-old said they moved quickly to avoid the spread of untrue rumors as much as possible. “We knew if rumblings and rumors started coming out, they would just be that, because by the time anybody knew anything it was over. It was done,” he said. Although this strategy didn’t stop the initial rumors of infidelity, Shelton had nothing but good things to say about his now ex-wife. “Our whole thing was, we are going to be cool about this, it is what it is. We’re buddies.”

Shelton and Lambert announced their divorce on July 20 after four years of marriage. “This is not the future we envisioned, and it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately,” the couple said in a joint statement. “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.”
