Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert Didn’t Interact at ACM Honor Awards

Awkwardness avoided. Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert didn’t interact at the star-studded ACM Honor Awards on Tuesday, August 30.

Shelton was backstage in his dressing room while his ex-wife performed, a source tells Us of the former couple’s lack of contact, adding that the way the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville is set up, entire rows of audience members would have to slide out of the pewlike seats in order to let one person pass. 

Another insider tells Us that Shelton “did not have an audience seat at all.”

By the time the country hunk hit the stage for his own performance, Lambert had already left.

“Blake and Miranda didn’t request to be far away from each other, but they never interacted,” the first source adds. “Everyone at the ACMs knew they wouldn’t want to cross paths.”

Though both Shelton, 40, and Lambert, 32, performed at the ceremony, neither walked the red carpet, and neither of their new significant others, Gwen Stefani or Anderson East, were spotted at the event.

The pair announced their decision to split in July 2015 after four years of marriage, and have both since spoken out about their divorce.

“We are real people with real lives and real s–t,” Lambert told Cosmopolitan in December. “We’re both very honest. This is what it is now, and we’re moving forward. We don’t need all the opinions. We just need y’all to be supportive, and nobody pick a side — because there ain’t a side.”

Shelton was more playful in his approach. In his first interview since news of their split, he told Entertainment Tonight that his Solo cup was filled with “a little vodka” and ice.

“I thought I’d go ahead and get it started early,” the Voice coach joked. “It’s been one of those weeks.”
