Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, country music’s most popular couple, are getting divorced. TMZ broke the news on Monday morning, reporting that the pair filed “a while ago,” and that their four-year long marriage was expected to formally end today. According to the publication, Lambert and Shelton signed a prenup.
“This is not the future we envisioned,” the former couple said in a statement to the Associated Press. “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.”
