Miranda Lambert was upset when Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani first went public with their relationship.
For a time, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert were one of the music industry’s strongest couple. The pair met in 2005 and dated for four years before getting engaged in 2010. They went on to tie the knot in Texas the following year.
However, the couple’s marital bliss was short lived.
Their relationship was plagued with rumors of conflict, including infidelity. Blake and Miranda finally announced their divorce in July 2015.
“This is not the future we envisioned and it is with heavy heart that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real family, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter,” they said in a joint statement.
Blake moved on very quickly. By the end of the year, it was confirmed he was dating his The Voice co-judge Gwen Stefani, who had also just gone through a divorce from Gavin Rossdale. Blake later revealed they bonded over their divorces, saying, “Gwen saved my life.
Who else on earth could understand going through a high-profile divorce from another musician? You can’t even imagine the similarities in our divorces.” Blake and Gwen went on to marry in 2021.
Given how quickly Blake moved on after his divorce from Miranda, it’s been questioned whether Miranda has any bitterness towards her ex-husband and his new wife. Here’s what we know.
What Really Happened Between Blake Shelton And Miranda Lambert
Blake worked closely with Gwen on The Voice during his marriage to Miranda. Coupled with the fact that they started publicly dating soon after his divorce, there’s been speculation over whether Blake and Gwen started seeing each other when he was still with Miranda.
The exact cause of Blake and Miranda’s divorce is unknown, but the two have denied infidelity rumors throughout the years.
Some reports suggested the couple couldn’t agree on whether to have children. “[Blake] is eager to have children, but she really enjoys not being tied down,” a source told Page Six in 2015. “I think they both were off on what the time frame would be.”
Conversely, TMZ reported at the time that Blake had suspicious Miranda was seeing someone else.

Miranda may have suspected Blake had feelings for Gwen before their marriage was over. “Miranda believes something’s been going on between these two for a lot longer than they’re letting on,” a source told Hollywood Life. “She doesn’t buy their story that it’s totally brand new.”
A different source echoed a similar sentiment to E! News, saying that Miranda wasn’t surprised to see Gwen and Blake get together.
She was not surprised to hear of the romance between Blake and Gwen. They were always pretty flirty. Miranda and Blake were on the rocks on and off and knew that this could always be a possibility,” they explained.
Two years later, in 2017, reports said that Miranda still had bitter feelings towards Blake and that she didn’t see their divorce coming.
“There is still a lot of bad blood and unresolved anger between Blake and Miranda,” an insider told Life & Style. “No one thinks they will ever be able to bury the hatchet and put their issues behind them.” Another source added, “A whole new era of warfare is starting for Miranda and Blake.”
