Don’t expect Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert’s divorce to get messy. It looks like the two want to become friends after their split.
“There are no hard feelings,” an inside source told Us Weekly of the former couple. “They want to move on as friends, and they are doing just that.”
The insider mentioned that their recent Twitter conversation “was not a deliberate plan.” It was a genuine move on their part. Shelton and Lambert’s online exchange made some fans question their intent. They promoted their friend Ashley Monroe’s new album and then joked about rumors that Shelton was pregnant. When followers called it out as staged interaction, “The Voice” coach assured them that the tweets were unplanned and genuine.

Despite rumors of cheating from both sides, the split seems to be amicable. The two country singers will even work together in the future. They’ll co-headline a Minnesota music festival, We Fest, in August. However, they’ll perform on different days.
Some may have thought the split was getting dramatic when Shelton recently moved the “Little Red Wagon” singer’s belongings onto his front porch, but it wasn’t a rude gesture. TMZ reports that Lambert told her ex-husband to donate or give away the items because she didn’t want them anymore.
Of course, a friendly split doesn’t mean they’re not hurting. Lambert seemed to hint at a July 28 concert in Nashville that she is having a hard time handling her divorce. “Well, I've been living off of caffeine and sad songs lately,” she said. “So, we're gonna drink some caffeine and sing sad songs.”
Shelton and Lambert started seeing each other in 2005 and were married in 2011. The two announced their divorce on July 20, the same day their divorce was finalized. “It is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately,” they said in a joint statement. We are real people, with real lived, with real families, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter.”
