Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton were married for years and had a contentious marriage and divorce. Both alleged that the other cheated on them, and since their divorce, both have hinted at major drama that led to the cause of their divorce – without quite revealing what that drama was. But now, Blake Shelton’s new girlfriend – Gwen Stefani – wants Miranda Lambert to stop talking about Blake Shelton, period.
When Miranda won the Album of the Year Awards at the ACM on April 2nd, she made a brief allusion to her ‘heartbreak’ in her acceptance speech. And given that she’s clearly referring to Blake Shelton in that comment, Blake’s new girlfriend was NOT happy about it, to say the least.
A source tells Hollywood Life that Gwen Stefani thinks that Miranda Lambert needs to let the past go already, explaining, “Gwen thinks Miranda really needs to focus on her current relationship and not her ex. Gwen gets that Miranda’s split with Blake was heartbreaking but come on, it’s time to move on.”
Gwen went through a similar heartbreak of her own with Gavin Rossdale, and their breakup was significantly worse – at least publicly – than Blake Shelton’s and Miranda Lambert’s. The source adds that Gwen is tired of Miranda continuing to harp on about her heartbreak when Gwen was able to heal from her own, explaining, “Gwen struggled to get over Gavin [Rossdale] but she did it and now it’s all about her relationship with Blake. None of them need to be living in the past!”
Well, there’s also the fact that Gwen Stefani lined up Blake Shelton as a jump-off literally the minute she was out of the marriage with Gavin Rossdale, and didn’t really have time to mourn. She and Blake went from zero to hundred in a matter of months, if not days, and that clearly helped her cope with her ‘heartbreak’. Miranda didn’t really have the benefit of rebounding with a super famous celebrity that she also worked with and who she clearly adored, and who helped her recover from her heartbreak.
What do you guys think? Is it fair for Gwen Stefani to be criticizing Miranda Lambert for talking about her heartbreak, when she’s the one who moved on with her ex-husband?
