Miranda Lambert made rare comments about her highly-publicized divorce from fellow country star Blake Shelton in a new interview with CBS News.

The Over You songstress, 38, confessed that she ‘wasn’t prepared’ to face the tabloid-frenzy after she and the 45-year-old singer announced their split in 2015.

‘I don’t think anybody is. And it’s not nice sometimes, but I think you got to take it with a grain of salt,’ she said.

‘Like, Miranda and I didn’t have any kids, and we had a prenuptial agreement, or whatever we had. So, it was like once we filed for divorce…it was like a nine or 10-day waiting period until it’s over,’ he told the host

‘Even if we knew of rumblings and rumors started coming out, they would just be that. By the time anybody knew anything, it was over. It was done.’

By the end of 2015, Blake had found love again with his The Voice co-judge and fellow music superstar Gwen Stefani. He proposed to Gwen in October 2020.
