There’s no doubt that the country singer knows a thing or two about love, songs like ‘God Gave Me You’ and ‘She Wouldn’t Be Gone’ could just warm or break your heart. On the subject of heartache, Blake would say he’s an expert, especially because he’s found and lost love. To better unravel the story, here is the low point of the story of Blake Shelton’s wives.
Blake Shelton’s Wives
Married twice, divorced twice and currently in a serious relationship, the country singer undoubtedly has an elastic heart.
Blake Shelton’s Wives; Kaynette Williams
Wife number one was Kaynette Williams, the singer’s longtime girlfriend and fellow citizen of Oklahoma. The two met when Shelton was just 15 and she was fresh out of high school. The two must-have shared their hopes and dreams because Kaynette was Blake’s first manager back when he was still young. At their wedding, Blake used his singing skills when he sang her a special song, it was Conway Twitty’s ‘Julia’.
In 2006 the couple ended their three-year marriage and Kaynette claimed that her ex-husband was “guilty of inappropriate marital behavior. The singer’s ex-wife then moved back to Oklahoma from Nashville. She moved again when Blake moved in with his new love, Miranda Lambert.
She told The Enquirer in an interview: ‘After Blake and I split up, I moved back to Oklahoma from Tennessee, but then Blake and Miranda moved back to a neighboring town, and it just felt like Oklahoma wasn’t big enough for all of us.
Today Kaynette lives her days in Great Bend, Kansas, where she works as a math teacher at an elementary school.
Blake Shelton’s Wives; Miranda Lambert
The couple first met in 2005, at the CMT 100 Greatest Duets concert. Together they sang ‘You’re the Reason God Made Oklahoma’. Although he was still married at the time, Blake claims that he fell in love with her on stage. Soon after his divorce from Kaynette, Blake officially started dating Miranda.
They went through all the cute moves; doing duets, singing to each other, and even helping each other write songs. Their relationship took to the next level in 2010 when he did the cutest thing and asked Miranda’s father for permission to ask her to marry him. We all know she said a big ‘yes’ to that.
Sometime in 2003, rumors of infidelity on Blake’s part came to light. He put those rumors to rest when he told People Magazine, “I have a wife now. I say no to things that may not be important. The couple was under constant verbal attack, with rumors of infidelity and divorce.
On more than one occasion, they have engaged in social media platforms to defend their marriage and each other. On July 20, 2015, they proved the rumor mill right when the news of their divorce became public and the papers were signed a few hours later.
In the midst of all this, the couple issued a statement to the Associated Press that day saying, “This is not the future we imagined. And it is with heavy hearts that we go forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real families, friends, and colleagues. So we ask for privacy and compassion in this very personal matter”.
The artist currently has no children, but rumors have often surfaced. Firstly, there has been speculation that Miranda Lambert was pregnant after the divorce as a result of a night of wet make-up sex. These rumors were soon put to rest when no baby came along. The rumor mill struck again, saying that Gwen was pregnant for the singer and the couple issued a statement denying the claim.
Blake Shelton’s Girlfriend
We have to hand it to him, his play is remarkable. The wheels began to turn in 2014 when Gwen filled in for Christina Aguilera as coach at The Voice while she was on maternity leave. A month after the announcement of Shelton’s divorce, news of Gwen’s divorce also surfaced.
In October of the same year, the media began to put two and two together. With Blake showing up in restaurants five minutes after Gwen, her rendezvous at Halloween parties, and her appearance on each other’s social media posts, who were they fooling? In November 2015 it was official, a representative of Blake confirmed that they were together and said: “Gwen and Blake are longtime friends who have only been together for a short time.
More recently, there have been rumors of a wedding before the end of the year. We hope it lasts for them, the third time’s a charm, right?
His name was Richie Shelton, he is the hero of Blake Shelton and he died when the singer was just 14 years old. Richie was 10 years older than Blake and although his death was more than two decades ago, he still had a lasting influence on the country singer.
