Miranda Lambert and Sam Hunt are rumored to be dating as they continue to prepare for their upcoming tour. Although neither party has confirmed their alleged relationship, sources continue to speak out, claiming Miranda Lambert has officially moved on from her divorce from Blake Shelton.

On December 14, Movie News Guide reported the following of Miranda Lambert’s rumored romance.

“Miranda Lambert and Sam Hunt have been an item for quite some time now ever since the two worked very closely together for their upcoming tours and sources claimed that their professional relationship eventually turned into something that Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani found to each other.”

Miranda Lambert has been linked to Hunt in recent months, and while there hasn’t been any physical evidence of their alleged relationship, the rumors continue to swirl online, leading most to believe there could be something going on between them.

In one particular recent report, shared by Hollywood Life earlier this month, it was noted that Hunt was helping Miranda Lambert completely forget about her ex-husband. According to the report, Miranda Lambert and Hunt have developed a “solid friendship” since their tour was announced, and “love” to flirt with one another via text message.

“[Miranda Lambert] was basically the first person to congratulate Sam on his Grammy nominations for Best Album and Best New Artist,” the source explained, adding, “It’s pretty obvious that the feelings are mutual and they both have crushes on each other.”

Although Miranda Lambert and Hunt may not be too serious quite yet, they are said to be having a good time getting to know one another.

Rumors regarding Miranda Lambert’s love life first began swirling in early October, just three months after she and Shelton parted ways after four years of marriage. At the time, OK! Magazine, via Celebrity Dirty Laundry, claimed Hunt was just what Miranda Lambert needed after her highly-publicized split. The source also revealed the two were planning on keeping their romance a secret — at least for the time being.

“[Miranda Lambert] and Sam can’t help but flirt. Spending time with Sam has been a huge lift for Miranda. They are getting very close, he makes her feel sexy and that is exactly what [Miranda Lambert] needs right now.”

Miranda Lambert and Shelton’s divorce announcement was followed just weeks later by the divorce announcement of Gwen Stefani and her husband of 13 years, Gavin Rossdale. At the time, no one really thought anything of it, but in early November, when Shelton and Stefani confirmed they were dating after weeks of rumors, reports began swirling, claiming the two may have been involved far before they confirmed their relationship. In addition, there have also been reports claiming Miranda Lambert was unfaithful to Shelton during their four-year marriage. However, in post-divorce interviews, both Miranda Lambert and her former husband have spoken highly of one another, and have failed to hint that there was any sort of betrayal by either one of them. (The only alleged infidelity that has been hinted around is the rumored affair of Rossdale, who an Us Weekly source claimed cheated on Stefani with the nanny of their three children, a woman named Mindy Mann).

As Miranda Lambert reportedly enjoys her new romance with Hunt, Shelton and girlfriend Gwen Stefani continue to parade their new love on new episodes of The Voice, airing Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC.
