Miranda Lambert has a reputation for relationship drama. But has the country star finally taken things too far?
Her whirlwind romance with fellow musician Evan Felker has raised more than a few eyebrows, but now it seems that trouble is brewing between Miranda, Evan, and his estranged wife.
Staci Felker claims that both her husband and Miranda have been calling—and she has the receipts. According to an Instagram post, not only has Evan been trying to reach out, but Miranda has also called 10 times in a single day. “FYI, if you’re crazy and crazy famous, this is how your number comes up. Wife’s number doesn’t change,” Staci pointed out in her caption. “Seems problematic. 10 times in one night #insecure #rightfullyso.”
What could Miranda possibly be calling about? Given the way the Felkers’ marriage blew up, the two women can’t have much to say to each other.
Miranda and Evan went on a whirlwind 3-day tour together, but they were allegedly growing close over flirty texts before that. The pair had never met before, but according to an anonymous source, “It started very much about work. He was completely thrilled. By the time he was leaving for tour, it had become a lot flirtier.”
By the time the tour ended, Miranda and Evan were an item…and his wife was left out in the cold.
He Ghosted His Wife—Twice!
When Miranda and Evan hooked up during a brief tour together, he still seemed to be a happily married man. Evan and Staci had been married for about a year and a half. He allegedly ghosted his wife in February of this year. Shortly afterward, Miranda took to Instagram to share a pic of herself smiling with the words “I do this thing called whatever I want” splashed across it.
In July, Evan reportedly tried to reconnect with his estranged wife, but things quickly went south. Staci said that he only reached out because she has publicly moved on and was finally feeling happy again. But when she was hospitalized shortly after they started talking again, Evan was nowhere to be found.
“I’m still his wife. I’ve done everything to be a good one because deep down I thought it might change things,” Staci said. But after he let her down for the last time, she went on to say, “That’s not a real man. That’s not a country boy and certainly no cowboy. Not a husband I’ll ever take back because I was scared and he was gone. Again.”
Her Cheating Heart
This isn’t the first time Miranda has been caught up in a cheating scandal. She reportedly began seeing fellow country superstar Blake Shelton while she was still married to Jeff Allen McManus. After Miranda and Blake split in 2015, he moved on with Gwen Stefani while Miranda started dating Anderson East—yet another country singer. She dumped Anderson for Evan in February of this year.
There’s one person who isn’t surprised or sympathetic, and that’s Miranda’s first ex-husband. After Blake made some public comments about “karma” in reference to his cheating ex, Jeff Tweeted: “You know, i’ve always given you the benefit of the doubt and chalked it up to just being human, But you must be one arrogant SOB to pop off something like this, when I know damn good and well you were cheating on your wife and Miranda was cheating on me when you two started up.”
At least these country stars have plenty of drama to write about on their next albums.
