Blake Shelton did not skip the 2016 CMA Awards because of Miranda Lambert, despite a wrong report. Gossip Cop can correct the story.

As Gossip Cop reported, the CMAs took place in Nashville on Wednesday night. Now OK! is exclaiming on its website Thursday, “Blake Shelton Skips CMA’s As Miranda Lambert Hits Him With One-Two Punch!” The accompanying article says Lambert “ruled the red carpet,” where she was joined by boyfriend Anderson East.

The tabloid goes on to write, “Miranda’s ex-husband Blake Shelton completely skipped the awards show after their dramatic showdown at the ACM awards back in the spring! But avoiding the site of Anderson cozying up to the woman he loved is not the only reason that Blake may have sat these awards out.”

“According to reports, Miranda has recently listed for sale the home that she used to share with Blake,” says the publication, as if that has anything to do with the Country Music Association Awards. Still, OK! asks at the end of its story, “Do you think Blake is avoiding Miranda?”

But Shelton’s absence at the event had nothing to do with Lambert. After all, they both attended last year’s ceremony, which took place only a couple of months after their split. The real reason Shelton skipped the CMAs this year is that he wasn’t nominated for any awards, and therefore had no need to go.

If the outlet bothered to do some research, it would’ve known that, but instead the magazine opted for speculation and sensationalism to make it seem like Lambert actually did something to him, which is not the case. And, by the way, the former couple didn’t have a “dramatic showdown” at April’s ACMs, either. They actually didn’t cross paths, but OK! is continuing to cross readers by spreading misinformation.
