Miranda Lambert began dating East at the end of last year, following her July 2015 divorce from former husband Blake Shelton, who has since moved on from their marriage with Gwen Stefani. And while Miranda Lambert and East haven’t shared much about their romance, the 32-year-old country singer did share a photo of herself snuggling with East in early January, and confirmed he was her boyfriend later that month.
Then, in February, a source claimed Miranda Lambert was in a race to marry East before her ex-husband and his new leading lady had a chance to beat her to the alter. As Gossip Cop revealed, an insider told Life & Style that Miranda Lambert and Stefani were in competition to see who could wed first.
“[Miranda Lambert] is determined to beat Gwen to the altar,” while “Gwen feels like she’s in a race with Miranda to see who can get married first,” the magazine insider claimed. “Gwen and Miranda are both determined to outdo their first marriages — and each other.”
The insider went on to reveal that Miranda Lambert and her boyfriend had already “discussed taking their relationship to the next level and for both of them that means one thing: marriage.” Meanwhile, Stefani was reportedly pushing her lawyers to quickly finalize her divorce from former husband Gavin Rossdale.
“She wants to outdo [Miranda Lambert] in every way, and that means having the biggest celebrity wedding of the decade,” the source added. “Gwen thinks Miranda is behaving like a child, but she can’t help it — she’s playing along with her games.”
In regard to the report, a rep for Stefani claimed the rumor that she and Miranda Lambert were in a race to get married to their partners was completely “untrue.”
Currently, both Miranda Lambert and East are touring, but they haven’t lost touch and continue to support one another’s careers.
