"This is not the future we envisioned," reps for the couple said in a statement to the Associated Press. "And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real families, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter."
According to TMZ, Shelton was the one to file the paperwork in Oklahoma, and since the couple previously signed a prenuptial agreement, all financial arrangements have already been worked out. The site also states that Shelton will keep the ranch in Oklahoma, while Lambert will get the pair's Nashville home.
The couple began dating in 2006 after meeting at the CMT's 100 Greatest Duets Concert. On May 14, 2011, Shelton and Lambert tied the knot in a rustic ceremony at the Don Strange Ranch in Texas. The nuptials marked the first marriage for Lambert and the second for Shelton
"Like I always say, my mom said to my dad, 'Divorce is not an option,'" Lambert told reporters at the 2013 Academy of Country Music Awards. "We really love each other and have a real marriage outside of all of this."
In happier times, Lambert gushed about her hubby to ET at this year’s ACM Awards. Watch in the video below.
