Once TMZ broke the news on their web site, it seemed to take only minutes for Twitter, Facebook, and blogs to start posting the spreading the word. As you might expect, it is news coming with all kinds of comments. The one I like best I read on Twitter. A fan posted “So sad, people give up so quickly now”. She’s right. Even the best marriages have problems. A lot of folks work through them…I’m sorry Blake and Miranda couldn’t do the same.
The TMZ tells us the couple filed for divorce a while ago, and a judge is expected to officially end the four-year marriage today. [Source] Blake will get the ranch in Oklahoma, Miranda will keep the family home in Nashville. The couple did have a prenup, which certainly helps when you a divorce between two wealthy people. They are telling us it was Blake who actually filed for the divorce, and it was filed in Oklahoma.
So much for the years of denial. There have been a lot of rumors about these two separating over the years – but they were always the first ones to laugh at the ‘rumors’ and say it wouldn’t happen.
Blake and Miranda did issue the following statement.
The couple says, “This is not the future we envisioned and it is with heavy heart that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real family, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter.”
I can certainly respect that. I have nothing more to say on the matter.
More news later!
