Just a few days ago, reports surfaced that Miranda Lambert had given her blessing to Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s relationship, and there was finally a little bit of hope that the bitterness and bad feelings were over for the former couple.
But, as Mark Twain famously said, “the reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated,” and it seems that things are as nasty as ever between the exes. Earlier this week, the news broke that Lambert has moved on from her split from Anderson East and is dating singer Evan Felker – who is married. And, Shelton immediately took the opportunity to call Lambert out on Twitter.
Been taking the high road for a long time.. I almost gave up. But I can finally see something on the horizon up there!! Wait!! Could it be?! Yep!! It’s karma!!

The 41-year-old also retweeted some of his fans’ responses to his post, including one that borrowed Stefani’s album title This Is What The Truth Feels Like.
According to People Magazine, Lambert apparently started dating the Turnpike Troubadours singer earlier this year while the two traveled the country together on the Livin’ Like Hippies Tour. Then, Felker’s wife, Staci Nelson, filed for divorce in February.

When Shelton and Lambert got divorced back in 2015, there were rumors of infidelity on her part. But, the two never gave specific reasons for their breakup. Shelton did, however, open up about how Stefani helped him survive the heartbreak.
He said he will never forget the day that he looked over at Stefani, who he really didn’t know at the time, and she had huge tears in her eyes. He couldn’t believe how bad she felt for him. At the time Lambert and Shelton split, Stefani had also ended her relationship with Gavin Rossdale.
Shelton says that things went from checking in with each other once a week via email to three or four times a week, and then it was every day. Eventually, they exchanged phone numbers and started to text, and before he knew it he would wake up every day and she was all he thought about.
Shelton says that no one else on Earth could understand going through a high-profile divorce from another musician like Stefani did. And, he said that fans couldn’t even imagine the similarities in their divorces. Stefani and Rossdale ended their marriage after he cheated with the nanny.
But now, Shelton and Gwen Stefani have been together for over two-and-a-half years, and they seem to be happier than ever.
The Hollaback Girl says that when you are going through a tough time, there are people who come into your life to help you get through it. And for her, Blake Shelton is definitely one of those people.
