"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.

A rep for the singer told ET at the time, "He knew the paparazzi was there and was just being funny."
