Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert may no longer be married, but Chris Young would like to make something very clear:
He had nothing to do with this shocking split.
A day after the Shelton-Lambert divorce news took the Internet by storm, insiders told TMZ that Blake filed the legal papers because he suspected his wife stepped out on him on at least two occasions.
One was with an unidentified man unassociated with the country music business.
And the other was allegedly with Young, with whom Lambert toured in 2012.
Young and Lambert have been friends for about five years and were most recently seen together in February... but that doesn't mean they ever boned!
"I don’t normally address gossip but in this case I will," Young wrote today on Facebook, adding:
"My name has been mentioned as a contributing factor in Blake and Miranda’s divorce. That is totally FALSE. They are both my friends and I would not betray that friendship.
"Just wanted to clear that up. Love you guys."
It is true that TMZ named Young as a possible Miranda Lambert lover, but the site did also claim his supposed affair with the superstar was not the catalyst for her divorce.
Still. We can understand Young's desire to distance himself entirely from all this chatter.
"This is not the future we envisioned," Shelton and Lambert said yesterday upon confirming their divorce. "And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately."
The stars were married for four years and do not have any children together.
