Right off the bat, let's just be clear that the answer to the question of whether or not Miranda Lambert is cheating on Blake Shelton is: probably not.
Rumors of trouble in Miranda and Blake's marriage have been circulating pretty much since the day they got hitched in 2011.
The couple has consistently denied the reports, but even so, every time Miranda hints at an alcohol addiction in an interview, the knives come out and tabloids start claiming that she's drinking to kill the pain of Blake's infidelities, or that her boozing is destroying their once-perfect marriage.
So yeah, the Blake and Miranda rumors have turned out to be 99% BS, but let's have some fun with anyway, shall we?
The latest issue of the ever-reliable Star magazine claims that Miranda is cheating on Blake with her good friend and fellow country singer Chris Young.
Witnesses reportedly spotted Miranda and Chris hanging out in a Nashville bar lately...and they say the two singers were definitely not working on a song together.
"Miranda and Chris were definitely into each other," a source tells the tabloid. "They were acting like a couple."
Star points out that Chris and Miranda have been friends for years, and he's closer to her in age than her 38-year-old husband.
"Miranda and Chris' bond has bothered Blake on occasion," says one "insider."
The source claims one of the big problems is that Blake's insanely hectic work schedule keeps him away from Miranda for weeks at a time.
"Miranda loves having this picture perfect country marriage, but the truth is, she's often lonely," says the source.
Of course, that same hectic schedule makes Blake a multi-millionaire several times over, so that probably helps.
