She can’t let go of the past! Life & Style has exclusively learned that Miranda Lambert is supremely jealous of Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani‘s picture perfect relationship. “Miranda can’t stand seeing her ex-husband so in love with Gwen, planning a wedding, [and] co-parenting Gwen’s sons,” a source revealed.
Unfortunately, the “Tin Man” singer’s jealousy has only been augmented by her recent split from Turnpike Troubadours frontman Evan Felker — and it’s playing out in the most destructive ways. It’s gotten so bad that Miranda’s loved ones are afraid she’s spiraling. “They’re worried her drinking is out of control and that she’s just numbing the pain of another failed relationship,” the source continued. “Friends and family have been so concerned that they’ve been considering an intervention.”
In fact, the last several weeks have been especially rough. “Miranda’s hard partying went into overdrive toward the end of her [summer] Bandwagon tour, around the time of her breakup with Evan. Ever since then, she’s been on an alcohol tear to deal with the heartbreak,” the source added. Aside from drinking onstage, Miranda has also been “throwing down whiskey and wine from her own Red 55 winery like mad to cope with her forlorn state.”
In June, the defiant country music queen told an interviewer, “I am who I am. I am honest about being flawed. That’s all I can be, you know? I cuss. I drink. I get divorced and get my heart broken. I break hearts.” But despite her efforts to paint herself as a footloose and fancy-free highway vagabond, Miranda wants what Blake has. “That’s the life Miranda dreams of and is just another reason she’s been drowning her sorrows,” the insider confessed. “It’s all just been getting worse day by day.”
