Turnpike Troubadours singer Evan Felker – who is Miranda Lambert’s married boyfriend – wants the details of his divorce to remain secret and is asking a judge to seal the case documents. Will the court grant the request and keep the material from being accessible to the public?
Radar Online is reporting that back in February, after Felker’s relationship with Lambert became public, his wife Stacy Nelson filed for divorce. And now, things are starting to get messy.
Documents filed on June 13th in the District Court of Oklahoma County in Oklahoma stated that the respondent (Felker) is already a public figure, and the petitioner (Nelson) is quickly becoming one. And because the exhibits of the case will include personal and private financial information of both Nelson and Felker, they are asking to keep things out of the public eye.

“That the harm to the privacy of the Respondent, and now the Petitioner, to their public persona and finances and the dangers of unwanted unwarranted adverse consequences outweigh the public interest in allowing this material to be accessible from the online public record,” argues Felker’s attorney.
They also requested that the court issue an order for both parties’ finances to be “Unavailable Online” to “prohibit public viewing.”
Last month, Felker attempted to speed up his divorce by filing a motion to end the marriage immediately, as his romance with Lambert continues to heat up. But, they may have hit a snag after he allegedly called his estranged wife against Lambert’s orders, and an insider says the Mama’s Broken Heart singer is “furious.”
Felker reportedly made the call to Nelson two months after he left her for Lambert, but it wasn’t so they could get back together. A source says he was “trying to be nice,” and attempting to “move the divorce along.”

When their relationship became public, Lambert reportedly gave Felker an ultimatum and would not allow him to have any communication with his ex. News of Felker and Lambert’s affair blindsided Nelson, and his phone call didn’t help.
On the day he called, she posted a pic on Instagram of a wine bottle with two swords and two hearts separating the initials E and S. In the caption, she wrote that his call was an “awkward coincidence” since that is the wine she was drinking. She also added, “Hi baby,” and “Such is life.”
An insider says that the phone call “p***ed off” Nelson, and she wants a break from her ex and his new girlfriend.
Miranda Lambert has not commented on her relationship with Felker or his ex-wife.
