Things are moving fast for Miranda Lambert and her new boyfriend Evan Felker. A month after going public with their romance, Felker filed an official motion to divorce his estranged wife, Staci Felker. Are Lambert and Felker getting ready to walk down the aisle?
This week, Felker filed a motion in court to end his marriage with Staci. The Turnpike Troubadours singer filed the order out of fear that Staci might delay the divorce for as long as possible. Shortly after Felker filed the paperwork, Staci shared a comment on Instagram referencing the end of their relationship.
“WELL I WAS CLEARLY MORE INTO THAT THAN YOU WERE: A LOVE STORY,” the post read.
Although the divorce was all but certain, insiders told Us Magazine that Staci was completely shocked by Felker’s recent motion. Staci has wanted out of the relationship for months on end, but Felker was the one dodging her phone calls.

Staci never wanted to take Felker to court and thought they could end things without a fuss. Given Felker’s court filings, Staci suspects that somebody else is influencing his decisions.
Felker and Lambert hooked up while touring together earlier this year. News of their romance broke last month and fans quickly speculated that Felker had had an affair with Lambert.
Inside sources, however, claim that the couple was having problems long before Felker met Lambert. That said, Lambert also met Felker while she was still dating Anderson East. We don’t know if East broke things off because Lambert cheated, but a friend of his says that Lambert has issues remaining faithful in relationships.

The biggest question moving forward is whether Lambert and Felker are serious enough to take things to the next level. With Felker trying to end his marriage as quickly as possible, there is a chance that he’s doing it to tie the knot with Lambert. Given how they’ve only been seeing each other for a few months, it would be a huge shock if they exchanged vows soon, but stranger things have happened in the world of country music.
Prior to dating Felker and East, Lambert was married to country crooner Blake Shelton for several years. The two ultimately parted ways in the summer of 2015, though they have not revealed exactly what ended their marriage. Shelton is currently still going strong with No Doubt alum Gwen Stefani.
Miranda Lambert has not commented on the rumors surrounding her new relationship.
