The Miranda Lambert Cheating Scandals Explained

Celebrity - News


Country star Miranda Lambert married Brendan McLoughlin in 2019, and the couple has seemed happy ever since. Their marriage seems to be the final punctuation mark on Lambert’s turbulent romantic history, including several cheating scandals that merit some deep digging.

In April 2018, Us Weekly reported that Miranda Lambert was dating Evan Felker, a married member of her opening act. Not only was Felker’s soon-to-be-ex-wife Staci Nelson Felker “devastated” by the news, but Lambert was already dating Anderson East when she and Evan started spending time together.

As for Lambert’s most well-known relationship, fellow country singer Blake Shelton said that he was “falling in love with [Lambert], right there on stage” when they met, even though he was already married to Kaynette Williams. Lambert hinted that she began dating Shelton in 2005, a year before Shelton’s divorce from Williams.

In March 2015, a source reported that Lambert and country singer Chris Young were “acting like a couple” at a Nashville bar, and that their bond sometimes bothered Blake Shelton. However, Young has denied rumors of an affair, and he has remained friends with both Lambert and Shelton.

Finally, Lambert's ex-fiancé Jeff Allen McManus claims she cheated on him with Shelton. When Shelton made a shady tweet about Lambert getting “karma” due to her messy situation with Evan Felter, McManus went off in the replies: “you must be one arrogant SOB… you were cheating on your wife and Miranda was cheating on me when you two started up.”
