Just one day after it was revealed that Blake Shelton filed for divorce from Miranda Lambert, In Touch magazine has exclusively obtained the official court documents!
In the papers [see below], the country crooner, 39, officially filed on July 6, 2015 — Blake uses only his and Miranda’s initials. He also had the papers sealed to keep them from becoming public. In addition, they were filed in a different county than where the couple lives in Oklahoma.
The pair are divorcing after four years of marriage. The papers also show that Blake filed a “petition for protective order,” which was approved on the same day.
A source close to the situation tells In Touch that The Voice coach completely blindsided her with the move.
“This is not the future we envisioned,” their reps said in a statement on Monday. “And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real families, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter.”
Rumors have been running rampant that the 31-year-old songstress had allegedly been unfaithful and did not want children, which is why Blake pulled the plug on the marriage.
