Miranda Lambert is at it again. Following her breakup with Anderson East, the country star is back in the dating game and seeing Evan Felker, who just divorced his wife after only one year of marriage. But did Lambert and Felker hook up before the divorce was final?
Felker was only married to Staci Nelson for a year before his wife ended things for good. This past February, Nelson signed divorce papers in Oklahoma County’s District Court. The official legal papers show that Nelson wanted a divorce because “complete and irreconcilable incompatibility has arisen between the parties.”
She also claimed that Felker abandoned her, which he vehemently denied in court.
While the two have not dished on the details surrounding their split, inside sources claim that Nelson wanted out because she believed her husband was cheating on her with Lambert. Felker and Lambert have not commented on the situation, but there is some evidence that the affair could have happened before the divorce.
Felker and his band are currently performing with Lambert on her Livin’ Like Hippies tour. Felker has been a part of the tour since January, which was a good month before he separated with Nelson. We don’t know for sure if the Lambert and Felker hooked up before the divorce, but Nelson’s father believes that she definitely played a part in the breakup.
Nelson’s dad recently spoke to Radar Online and revealed that Nelson was devastated by Felker’s actions. Although he admitted that he doesn’t know Lambert very well, he believes that his daughter ended the marriage over an affair. With Lambert and Felker now dating, Nelson’s dad made it clear what he thought about the split.
“I don’t like to spread rumors, but I’d say you’re on the right track,” he explained, adding that he cannot “confirm or deny” the cheating scandal.

Inside sources recently confirmed that Lambert and Felker are dating. Their romance is apparently heating up and the two are spending more time in each other’s company as the tour continues.
If the cheating rumors are true, it would help explain why Lambert and East called it quits this month. Of course, this also isn’t the first time Lambert has been involved in a cheating scandal. She reportedly starting seeing her now ex-husband Blake Shelton when he was still a married man.
Miranda Lambert and Shelton eventually tied the knot but ended their marriage in the summer of 2015.
