Chris Young Denies Affair With Miranda Lambert: ‘I Would Not Betray That Friendship’
Country singer Chris Young has found himself in the middle of the drama surrounding the Blake Shelton/Miranda Lambert divorce, as rumors claim he’s one of two men with whom Miranda Lambert had an affair.
However, Young has taken to social media to adamantly deny the affair with Miranda.
“I don’t normally address gossip but in this case I will,” Young wrote on Twitter. “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 -CY”

According to TMZ, Blake filed for divorce after learning of the alleged infidelity with Young. The report goes on to state that this was the second time Blake suspected Miranda of cheating. Apparently, she had an affair with another man who’s not famous, which shows that average Joes still have their appeal, I guess. Of course, some believe that Blake’s PR team has spun the divorce in his favor in the media by painting Miranda as the villain, when it’s really their client who’s in the wrong. Ultimately, there’s no real way to confirm these rumors unless someone talks, or unless court documents leak. And I wouldn’t exactly hold my breath for that.
Adding to the complications are reports from The New York Post that claim children are the reason for the divorce. More specifically, Blake wanted kids but Miranda didn’t. Or, at the very least, Miranda wanted to put off starting a family for longer than Blake wanted to wait. Naturally, their busy schedules probably didn’t help matters, with Blake being committed to The Voice for the foreseeable future, in between an active performing schedule, while Miranda has a fairly active schedule of her own. Either way, this is a sad situation. It’s basically the real-life version of the Rayna James/Luke Wheeler breakup from Nashville, right down to the joint statement. So I guess the big takeaway from all this is that everyone should watch that show like a crystal ball to see what the future holds? Yeah, I got nothin’.
