Miranda Lambert may be dating Sam Hunt, at least according to reports, but a separate source claims the country singer is harping on her ex-husband Blake Shelton’s new romance.

Although reports since October have claimed Miranda Lambert and Hunt have embarked on a dating relationship as they prepare for their upcoming 2016 tour, a source recently told Hollywood Life that Miranda Lambert’s focus lies on the love fest between Shelton and Gwen Stefani.
“[Miranda Lambert] is just over it. Her marriage to Blake is over and she just wants to move on with her life. She’s focusing on her music and her upcoming tour and her friends. It’s just hard when her ex and his new girlfriend are all over TV, the web and magazines together.”
In a second report, also via Hollywood Life, a source claimed Miranda Lambert felt her former partner’s new romance was actually a publicity stunt. According to the report, Miranda Lambert found their super-speedy relationship to be “too much too fast,” and was actually embarrassed for the couple. The source also stated that if Shelton and Stefani were confident in their relationship, they wouldn’t feel the need to flaunt it as much as they have in the weeks since their dating confirmation.
In addition to the couple’s PDA and flirty comments on The Voice, there have been reports claiming Stefani is expecting her Shelton’s first child. While she has yet to confirm or deny the seemingly far-fetched pregnancy rumors, they haven’t lost steam since hitting the web early last month, and in recent weeks, engagement and wedding rumors have followed.
“[Miranda Lambert] can’t wait till The Voice season ends so she can avoid Blake and Gwen’s love fest,” the source added.
Following Miranda Lambert’s July, 2015, divorce announcement, her ex and his new lady went public with their romance in November, one month after Miranda Lambert was first linked to Hunt in an OK! Magazine report. On October 3, Celebrity Dirty Laundry revealed news of Miranda Lambert’s alleged romance, claiming she and Hunt were flirting with one another as they headed towards their joint tour.
“[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.”
In the same report, it was noted that fans shouldn’t accept Miranda Lambert and her rumored new boyfriend to go public with their relationship anytime soon, as they were “trying to keep things quiet for now.”

Although the dating rumors surrounding Miranda Lambert seemed to die down after her ex-husband’s romance was confirmed, they saw a major reboot earlier this month, when a source spoke to Hollywood Life, claiming the two had established a solid relationship with one another in the weeks since they were professionally linked. In the report, it was revealed that Hunt was helping Miranda Lambert cope with her divorce heartbreak, and that they had been flirting regularly.
“[Miranda Lambert] was basically the first person to congratulate Sam on his Grammy nominations for Best Album and Best New Artist,” the source explained.
As Miranda Lambert remains linked romantically to her tour mate, she has kept a low profile. While her ex and his new love have been very public with their feelings, Miranda Lambert has chosen to keep to herself, and avoid much chatter about her own comments and behavior.
