Blake Shelton breaks silence on Miranda Lambert divorce: It happened 'so fast'
Blake Shelton is speaking out about his sudden and shocking split fromMiranda Lambert.
The former country couple announced their divorce on July 20 after four years of marriage. Unlike many of their celebrity counterparts, Shelton and Lambert settled the matter quickly and quietly -- with the news only becoming public on the same day that the divorce agreement was finalized.
"In Oklahoma, it happens so fast," Shelton, 39, said in an interview with theBobby Bones Show on Wednesday. "Like, Miranda and I didn't have any kids, and we had a prenuptial agreement, whatever we had. Once we filed for divorce, it was over in, like, I think it was a nine or 10-day waiting period until it's over."
Initial reports regarding the breakup indicated that Shelton would keep the couple's ranch in Oklahoma, while Lambert would get their Nashville home.
"We knew if rumblings and rumors started coming out, they would just be that," Shelton said on Tuesday. "By the time anybody knew anything, it was over... It was done." (One day before the divorce went public, Shelton was spotted out and about wearing his wedding ring – while Lambert broke down in tears onstage.)
Just days after the news went public, ET was with Shelton on the set of The Voice -- where he was not shy about drinking vodka in the middle of the afternoon.
"It's been one of those weeks," he told ET at the time.
Days after our interview, Shelton trolled the paparazzi by pushing an empty baby stroller around outside in Los Angeles. Asked by a photographer whether he had any regrets about his failed relationship, Shelton quipped: "Yeah, man. I shoulda drank more today." A rep for the singer told ET at the time, "He knew the paparazzi was there and was just being funny."
Shelton has kept his sense of humor intact through all of this, engaging in witty banter with his ex on social media and joking about his pageant past in an interview with ET. See the moment in the video below.
