One of the men Miranda Lambert cheated on Blake Shelton with was Major League Baseball player Josh Beckett, a new report alleges.
Lambert reportedly dated Beckett, a former pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers, for several years, and the only reason she didn’t leave her husband for him was because her manager said it “would hurt her brand.”
“She was only with Blake to advance her career,” an insider told Star magazine.
In mid-July, the country singers announced they were getting divorced after four years of marriage.
“This is not the future we envisioned,” Shelton and Lambert said in a joint statement. “And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately.” (RELATED: Rumors Of Unfaithfulness In Miranda Lambert And Blake Shelton Marriage)
