TISHOMINGO, Okla. – Fans of an Oklahoma country music star were stunned this summer when rumors of a divorce began swirling.
“This is not the future we envisioned and it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real family, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter,” the couple said in a statement.
Just a month later, another musical couple split.
“While the two of us have come to the mutual decision that we will no longer be partners in marriage, we remain partners in parenthood and are committed to jointly raising our three sons in a happy and healthy environment. To that end, we respectfully request privacy from the media during this time,” a statement from the couple read.
After their divorces, there was talk about “The Voice” coaches dating.
On Tuesday, Stefani joked about the rumors during an interview with Ryan Seacrest, who then asked if those rumors were true.
“I’m not going to answer that right now, Ryan. I think I’ve given enough of myself this morning to you,” Stefani said. “But I think he’s hot, don’t you?”
