Miranda Lambert & Blake Shelton Are Supposedly 'Buddies' Now

Blake Shelton & Miranda LambertStaying true to the latest celebrity trend in which divorcing couples still pal around, Blake Shelton says he and ex-wife Miranda Lambert are now "buddies."  Huh?


First, we've watched Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin "consciously uncouple." Then, we've seen Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck enjoy multiple post-split outings. Now, the recently divorced country crooners are giving friendship a go.

While it may sound strange to the average couple, the way Shelton explains it, it makes sense. The Voice star says the couple had a prenup in place -- which, hello, kind of sounds like they both recognized divorce was likely option -- so that simplified the division of assets.

Plus, the singer points out, they have no children, which eliminates any potentially contentious custody battles.

Still, when it comes to splitting up, typically one party -- usually the one who initiated it -- takes it in stride a bit more quickly than the other. But take kids and cash out of the equation and maybe exes can be "buddies" after all. 

Since they travel in the same circles, it's probably much easier to take the amicable route anyway and move forward wishing each other well.
