Drama Between Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani And Miranda Lambert At The CMAs?
Both Blake Shelton and his ex-wife Miranda Lambert attended the CMAs on Wednesday night. Since they’re both in the country music industry, they’re bound to find themselves at the same events. However, it doesn’t look like either of them are in the mood to make nice.
Blake and his girlfriend, fellow Voice coach Gwen Stefani, skipped the red carpet at the show. Then later in the night, Miranda apparently refused to stand up after Blake’s live performance. Read on to find out more about this apparent drama.
Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani Skips The CMAs Red Carpet
It’s not the first time Blake and Gwen have skipped the red carpet at an awards show Miranda was attending. They also did it at the ACM Awards in April of this year. (During the show, Miranda threw shade at Blake in her performance of “Little Red Wagon.”)
This time, however, Blake and Gwen had an excuse. Blake posted on his Instagram Stories that they were stuck in traffic and might miss the show’s opening. We’ll take his word for it, although we do have to wonder if the couple headed out late on purpose to avoid any awkward run-ins.
Blake declares his love for Gwen
Notably, Blake declared his love for Gwen at the People’s Choice Awards earlier this week. “Gwen Stefani, I love the sh-t outta you!” he shouted during his acceptance speech for Country Artist of 2019.
Miranda Lambert Shades Blake’s Performance
Blake performed his song “God’s Country” during the CMAs, as well as joining Garth Brooks to sing their track “Dive Bar.” It seems like Miranda Lambert wasn’t too impressed with his performance, however.
After Blake’s “God’s Country” performance, Miranda and her husband Brendon McLoughlin reportedly didn’t join the audience in a standing ovation. “Everyone stood up for Blake at the end of his performance except Miranda Lambert and her husband,” a witness told Us Weekly. “At the commercial break, they both left their seats.”
But don’t ask Miranda about Blake! “When everyone’s worried about your personal life, it makes you feel like, ‘Well, if you could just spend some of that time talking about my actual art, that would be great!’” Miranda recently told Health.
“But I guess I asked for it, getting into this business,” she added. “I’m never gonna get used to the public eye in that way.”
