One of the tabloids claims Miranda Lambert is divorcing husband Brendan McLoughlin after just 122 days of marriage. The story is completely untrue. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk it.
The country star and the NYPD officer tied the knot in January after only three months of dating, and according to Star, the relationship is already over. A supposed source tells the magazine that Lambert is "moving out" of their $2 million apartment in New York City and telling friends that "marrying Brendan was the biggest mistake of her life."
One of the major issues, says the alleged insider, is the long-distance nature of their relationship. Lambert still owns a home in Nashville, and the time apart has supposedly been taking a toll on their marriage. "Flying Brendan back and forth to Tennessee was tiring," adds the questionable tipster, adding that the singer wanted them to settle in Nashville and have a baby. Considering that Lambert just spent $2 million on a penthouse apartment in New York City, this assertion doesn't make much sense.
Still, the seemingly phony source further contends that Lambert's pals are concerned she'll lose her fortune in the "split," adding, "Because of the way she rushed in to marrying Brendan, they're scared she didn't have him sign a prenup. They're very fearful she didn't take the necessary legal steps to protect her money."
The anonymous "insider" goes on to say that Lambert's ex-husband Blake Shelton somehow got wind of the "divorce" news and sent her a snide text saying, "Better luck next time!" The so-called "source" adds, "That was especially cruel, given that he's been in a loving relationship with Gwen Stefani since right after he and Miranda went their separate ways." As for Lambert, she "can't seem to believe she's just had one failed romance after another," adds the seemingly fictitious source.
The tabloid's report is entirely fabricated. Less than a week ago, Lambert shared an Instagram photo of her husband holding two rescue puppies on her farm in Nashville. The singer then noted that she and McLoughlin plan on helping the dogs find a home. The spouses are splitting their time between Tennessee and New York, and doing so hasn't been an issue.
Regardless, Gossip Cop checked in with Lambert's spokesperson, who tells us on the record that Star's report is "completely made-up." The singer's rep, speak on Lambert's behalf, further assures us, "Not one iota is true. They are happy and together!"
This wouldn't be the first time we've caught the unreliable outlet publishing fiction about the singer. Last year, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for wrongly reporting Lambert was doing a reality show about her life. As time has proven, no such show was ever produced. This latest article about the country star getting a divorce is similarly incorrect.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
