The 30-year-old country singer took to Twitter to respond to allegations that his relationship with Lambert incited the official separation on July 20.

The rumors spawned from a report by TMZ, which stated Shelton suspected Lambert had previously cheated on him with Young. Its source also said Shelton recently discovered new information about Lambert’s involvement with another man, which led him to file for a divorce. TMZ has since removed the statements from its website.
Neither Shelton nor Lambert has addressed the reasons behind their separation.
“This is not the future we envisioned,” the couple said 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.”
