Country music stars Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert’s divorce has been finalized.
Shelton and Lambert were married in 2011. Shelton filed for divorce in Oklahoma state court two weeks ago and news of the couple’s split just broke on Monday.
The couple released the following joint statement: “This is not the future we envisioned. 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.”
This Shelton’s second marriage. He divorced his first wife, Kaynette Gern, in 2006.
