Love Is Dead Part 784: Blake Shelton & Miranda Lambert Are Getting Divorced

The bad news: Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, country music’s second most adorable living couple after Faith Hill and Tim McGraw (country music’s most adorable dead couple is, of course, Johnny Cash and June Carter), are splitting up. The good news: there are sure to be some killer heartbreaking ballads in our future. The couple, who has been married for four years, issued the following statement to the Associated Press:

“This is not the future we envisioned. And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real families, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter.”

The only thing that would take the sting out of this particular celeb split is if Blake and Adam Levine finally just gave into their passion and started dating. Stand by. [Washington Post]
