Miranda Lambert and husband Brendan McLoughlin are coming up on nine months of happy marriage, but that hasn’t stopped the tabloids from spreading false stories about the two divorcing or having issues. Gossip Cop had debunked many takes on the subject. Here are a few wrong stories we’verecently busted about the country star and her spouse.
Last month, Life & Style published a piece claiming Lambert and McLoughlin were “fighting in public.” The tabloid based the “fighting” on the fact that a “source” saw McLoughlin gesturing with his hands while the couple walked down the street in New York City. However, there were no paparazzi photos of their supposed “argument.”
Gossip Cop checked with the singer’s spokesperson, who told us that the article was false. Social media posts from Lambert confirmed this, showing the couple happily joking around while walking in New York City, with no evidence of the “tension” the tabloid said was pulling them apart.
Life & Style‘s story also referenced a “shocking report” about Lambert “boozing by herself.” The tabloid was referring to a “report” from its own sister publication, In Touch, which made the same claim a few days prior. According to the tabloid, the couple “rushed into marriage” without considering how their “wildly different lifestyles” might intertwine.
The outlet alleged that Lambert was too “controlling” and didn’t trust her husband, but didn’t want to “scare him off by stopping him seeing his pals,” so the result was that the two ended up “living separate lives,” and Lambert “ends up going out by herself.” An individual in the singer’s camp told us the article was flat-out “stupid.” Social media posts from both Lambert and McLoughlin revealed a happy couple that share their life together.
Also last month, the National Enquirer falsely claimed Lambert and McLoughlin’s marriage was “on the rocks.” The outlet repeated false claims about Lambert drinking alone, but added a detail about her husband being “with a bevy of babes in a Manhattan bar.” The magazine further contended McLoughlin’s “macho” lifestyle conflicted with Lambert’s controlling ways, resulting in “boozy fights” and “silent treatments.”
Gossip Cop ran the story by a source close to Lambert, who assured us the whole thing was fake. This was evident by the array of paparazzi snaps of the couple goofing off and smiling together just after the tabloid published the rumors.
Back in May, Star wrongly reported that Lambert and McLoughlin were headed for divorce after just 122 days of marriage. The tabloid claimed Lambert was moving out their New York City apartment after realizing that “marrying Brendan was the biggest mistake of her life.” The magazine said the singer was insisting they settle down in Nashville full-time, which didn’t make much sense considering she had just spent $2 million on a penthouse in New York City.
Of course, the two are still married all these months later. In fact, they’ve been successfully splitting their time between Nashville and New York. It should also be noted, the couple spent this past weekend together in Texas celebrating Lambert’s parents’ 40th anniversary.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
