Miranda Lambert and Anderson East split after two years: report
Miranda Lambert’s subtle hints about heartbreak have seemingly come true.
The 34-year-old country star and boyfriend Anderson East have called it quits after two years together, according to Us Weekly.
“They have spent a lot of time apart, but potentially could end up back together,” a source told the magazine. “The love is still there.”
Lambert and East, 30, went public in December 2015, just months after she and ex-husband Blake Shelton finalized their divorce.
Speculation about a possible split began after the couple stopped posting about each other on social media.
Last month, during a concert in Knoxville, Tenn., Lambert opened up about the inspiration behind her performances in a speech that hinted at a breakup.
“I make it my mission every single time I step on the stage that no matter what, no matter where I am, I want to make you feel everything you could possibly feel,” she said before launching into an acoustic version of “Tin Man,” according to Knox News.
“I want you to feel sad, mad, happy and nostalgic and really pissed sometimes. That’s my favorite. And part of feelings is also heartbreak, unfortunately. But fortunately for me, I can use it for my art or whatever. I like to write sad songs. I like to listen to sad songs, so I want to sing y’all one.”
A rep for Lambert did not immediately return a request for comment.
