Chris Young says he’s not a factor in Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert’s divorce

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Country singer Chris Young took to his Twitter account Tuesday afternoon to address rumors circulating that he may have been a “contributing factor” in country superstars Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert’s divorce.

“I don’t normally address gossip, but in this case I will,” Young wrote.

He continued, “My name has been mentioned as a contributing factor in Blake and Miranda’s divorce. That is totally false. They are both my friends and I would not betray that friendship. Just wanted to clear that up. Love you guys.”

Shelton and Lambert announced Monday they are divorcing after just over four years of marriage.

The couple, who married May 14, 2011, released a statement after the news broke that read in part, “This is not the future we envisioned. And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately.”

This is Lambert’s first marriage and Shelton’s second.
