Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert “Want to Move on as Friends” After Split.

SHAWNEE, Okla. – An Oklahoma judge is defending his actions in allowing country music stars Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert to keep details of their divorce private. The Oklahoman newspaper reports that attorneys and others had criticized Pottawatomie County Associate District Judge John Gardner after he sealed the musicians’ entire divorce file. Four days after the exes announced their split in a joint statement on July 20, they engaged in some jokey, lighthearted banter over Twitter. “This was not a deliberate plan to show some kind of unified front,” the insider tells Us of the “Somethin’ Bad” singer, 31, and The Voice coach, 39, who battled rumors of infidelity and marital troubles throughout their four-year union. During a gig in Nashville, Tennessee on Tuesday night, Miranda shared with the crowd how she was coping in the aftermath of the news. “Well, I’ve been living off of caffeine and sad songs lately,” she said as she strummed on her guitar, according to Us Weekly. “So, we’re gonna drink some caffeine and sing sad songs.” Miranda and Blake, 39, tied the knot in May 2011 after meeting in 2005.

According to The Boot, John Gardner, district judge in Pottawatomie County, Okla. explained, “If the pleadings in this case were made public, it would significantly compromise the personal and financial privacy of the parties” (quote via NewsOK.com). “There is no legitimate public interest in the personal and financial matters of these parties’ dissolution. Fans weren’t convinced — one questioned whether the tweets, about mutual pal Ashley Monroe’s new album, were preset — but Shelton made it clear that he didn’t care.

For two hours Lambert played alongside fellow country singers, including Rae Lynn and Clare Dunn, and some of Music City’s most talented writers, including Natalie Hemby. During the set she revealed she has spent a lot of time in the past weeks with these people to craft new lyrics and melodies. “It’s been a long time since I’ve played like this, but I get to be up here with some of my best pals who I write with all the time,” Lambert said to the crowd (quote via Hollywood Life). “Actually, in the last two weeks, I’ve written with everybody up here.” At one point in the show, the “Little Red Wagon” singer brought Hemby up on stage to perform a song they co-wrote together, “Virginia Bluebell,” which is about a person who tries to stand tall despite being put down.
