After years of relationship drama, Miranda Lambert is finally putting herself first. It’s been two months since the country singer, 35, has made a public appearance and Life & Style magazine has exclusively learned why.

“Miranda has taken a step back from the spotlight to focus on herself,” an insider revealed. “She’ll claim that she doesn’t really care what people think of her, but underneath the tough exterior, all the cruel comments get to her. She’s taking a timeout to reflect on her life and what the future holds.”

Of course, the source is referring to Miranda’s brief romance with a married man. The blonde beauty began dating Turnpike Troubadours singer Evan Felker back in 2018 and received a ton of backlash.

Prior to Evan, Miranda dated musician Anderson East for two years. Miranda’s most notable relationship, however, was with her now-ex-husband, Blake Shelton. The pair was together from 2011 to 2015. With that, it’s fair to say that the “Tin Man” songstress hasn’t been truly single in nearly a decade.

“Miranda decided to take a break from men, instead of doing what she usually does, jumping from one guy to the next,” the insider admitted. “In some ways, Miranda’s reached the point where she feels that going public with a man is a recipe for disaster.”

Don’t fret, though! The songbird hasn’t completely given up on finding The One. “Miranda’s figuring out how to attract the right kind of love, with the help of books and insight groups like the Manifestation Miracle program,” the insider said.

“She’s lying low, but she’s not hiding. Miranda has a whole new outlook on life. She’s all about inner strength now, and she’s in a very good place.” Good for you, girl! We look forward to your comeback.
