Country music star Miranda Lambert may be about to suffer the ultimate in fat shaming. Rumors are circulating that husband Blake Shelton is about to divorce Miranda because she has gained weight. Miranda Lambert shot to fame as a finalist on the 2003 season of Nashville Star, where she finished in third place. Lambert married fellow country music star Blake in 2001, but rumors have been circulating for some time that the marriage may be in trouble.
Miranda Lambert’s weight has been a subject of rumor and speculation in the past. Back in September of 2014, the Daily Mail reported that Lambert had shed around 45 lbs. At that time, speculation that Lambert had undergone weight loss surgery were fiercely denied. Miranda wrote an open letter to her fans explaining that she had lost weight the “old fashioned way.”
“[T]hough I never care what the tabloids have to say about me, I wanted to address this certain story they are running this week and set the record straight.
“I did not have surgery to lose weight. That is ridiculous. ‘I lost my weight the healthy and good old fashioned way. Watching what I eat and working out with my trainer Bill Crutchfield.”
Rumors are circulating again that Miranda Lambert’s marriage to Blake Shelton is in trouble. Kpopstarz claim that divorce may be looming because Miranda has regained the weight she shed last year. They quote unnamed sources who claim that Shelton is unhappy that 31-year-old Miranda is “letting herself go.”
“Miranda has thrown in the towel on dieting, and that has Blake feeling like she’s just letting herself go. He wants her slim and fit not pudgy and porking out! Apparently, Miranda has started binge eating and not caring what anyone says or thinks, and it’s ‘horrified’ Blake Shelton to no end.”
As always, rumors of this sort should be treated with caution. To date, there has been no comment from either Miranda Lambert or Blake Shelton about the issue. Last year, rumors circulated that Miranda and Blake were to divorce over his drinking, yet the couple are still together.
As reported by the Inquisitr yesterday, Miranda Lambert is the only female artist nominated for Entertainer of the Year at the ACM Awards.
Lambert told People that she was thrilled to be the only female nominated for the prestigious award.
“I feel that it’s my responsibility to kind of wave that flag for all the female artists out there, because it takes a lot of work to get a nomination for entertainer of the year and so I’m proud to go and be that person.”
