With all the talk about whether or not Blake Shelton will marry Gwen Stefani, it's easy to lose track of Miranda Lambert these days.
The country music sensation recently split from Anderson East and has remained mostly off the celebrity gossip radar since her split from Shelton.
But not any longer!
Although, based on a new report, Lambert may wish she could go back into hiding.
According to various outlets, Lambert is now romantically involved with Evan Felker, a musician in the neo-folk group Turnpike Troubadours.
She only broke up with East a few weeks ago, so the relationship can't be all that serious. However...
“They are very much [together],” a source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.
And it makes sense, too: Felker's band is currently opening for Lambert on her Livin’ Like Hippies tour, which began in January and runs through June.
This all sounds fine and dandy and sweet, but it's what Radar Online has seemingly uncovered that makes the new romance sound less... fine and dandy and sweet.
Simply put, an insider tells Radar that Felker cheated on his wife, Staci Nelson, with Lambert.
In explosive divorce papers actually obtained by this entertainment news website, Nelson filed for divorce from the Turnpike Troubadours lead singer on February 28, 2018 in District Court of Oklahoma County.
And this is what the petition read at the time:
"Petitioner alleges that a state of complete and irreconcilable incompatibility has arisen between the parties, by virtue of Respondent’s abandonment of Petitioner, which has completely destroyed the legitimate aims of the marriage and rendered its continuation impossible."
The Respondent’s abandonment of Petitioner?!?
This makes it rather apparent that Felker stepped out on his wife.
In his response to the petition filed on March 28, Felker confessed that a “state of complete and irreconcilable incompatibility has arisen between the parties.”
Does this mean he definitely cheated with Lambert? No.
But come on now. Just take a look at the timing here.
The divorce case remains ongoing.
Lambert, meanwhile, "started spending more time" with Felker while still "technically" dating East, Us Weekly reports.
So both parties may be a little guilty here.
Lambert ended her marriage to Shelton after four years back in early 2015... and then got with East just a few months later.
There's clearly a pattern here of someone who doesn't want to be alone.
Which is mostly fine. We're not judging.
But Felkner's wife may be.
"Staci had no other choice but to file for divorce,” says an Us Weekly insider. “She was devastated.”
