It’s over for Miranda Lambert, 34, and singer Anderson East, 29, In Touch has learned. The pair, who dated for more than two years after Miranda’s divorce from Blake Shelton in 2015, “grew apart” while on separate tours, a source reveals.
But when Anderson decided to end things, the source says, Miranda was devastated. “She didn’t see it coming,” the source says. While an insider insists it wasn’t Anderson who pulled the plug, it’s undeniable that the romance upped his cachet. “Dating Miranda took him to the top of the musical A-list,” says the source.
The breakup has understandably been crushing to the singer but she’s not letting it get the best of her. Now Miranda is throwing herself into her No. 1 love: work. “She’s been writing songs and she’ll join The Bandwagon Tour with Little Big Town in July,” the source continues. “She refuses to sit around feeling sorry for herself.”
Last year, Life & Style exclusively learned that Anderson was planning to propose to Miranda on New Year’s Eve before their relationship went south. Now, Miranda will have to recover from yet another public breakup. She split from ex-husband Blake Shelton in 2015 after four years of marriage. Sources told Life & Style that she is scarred for life and still hasn’t fully recovered from the heartbreak.
“The cold-blooded way Blake blindsided her with divorce, drove her out of his life, and then shoved his romance with Gwen [Stefani] in her face is something that will scar her forever,” the source revealed. “It still burns her… Blake didn’t work at the marriage like she wanted him to.” Poor, Miranda… hopefully she can truly move on from Blake and Anderson.
