Blake Shelton Still Wearing Wedding Ring in Photos a Day Before Divorce
Shelton was spotted at a NASCAR race in New Hampshire on Sunday (July 19) with the gold band on his left ring finger. Adam Sandler doesn’t take second place to a ring in many photos, but this is one of them. The picture was taken one day before news of the couple’s divorce, which was finalized before the end of the day on Monday (July 20).
The Oklahoman confirms that Shelton filed for divorce on July 6, three days after both he and Lambert appeared at the Greenbrier Classic in West Virginia, where they performed on the same day. It’s not clear that they shared the stage, however. On July 18, Lambert broke down trying to sing “The House That Built Me” in Wyoming. She had her fans sing the song for her instead.
Lambert and Shelton were married in 2011 after five years of dating. Rumors about troubles in their marriage were so common it became comical, with both joking about the tabloid headlines often. While rumors about the reason for the split are running wild, both stars have remained quiet on social media. Only a statement from a publicist saying “This is not the future we envisioned” exists as a public explanation. Shelton returns to the stage July 24 in Wisconsin, while Lambert doesn’t sing again until next Tuesday at 3rd and Lindsley in Nashville.
