Miranda Lambert and Brendan McLoughlin Steered Clear of Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani at ACMs

Miranda Lambert and her husband Brendan McLoughlin managed to deftly avoid awkward run-in with her ex-husband Blake Shelton and his wife Gwen Stefani at the 2024 ACM Awards.

AceShowbiz - Miranda Lambert and her husband, Brendan McLoughlin, ensured no awkward encounters occurred between them and Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani during the 2024 Academy of Country Music Awards, according to sources. The couples, who both performed and attended the event, walked the red carpet at different times to avoid any potentially contentious interactions.

"Miranda may not have anything against Blake, but she's also not looking for any awkward run-ins with her ex," an insider exclusively told In Touch. "She does avoid him and Gwen at these functions because she feels it's better to be safe than sorry. It's just a matter of not wanting to create a situation that could ultimately be taken out of context or misconstrued."

Despite their conscious efforts to keep their distance, both couples maintained a high profile at the awards. Lambert and Shelton took the stage for performances, though at separate times. Miranda Lambert performed first, followed by a duet from Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani of their new song "Purple Irises."

Miranda, dressed in a striking black dress with a plunging neckline and high slit, was seen walking the red carpet with McLoughlin, who wore a classic black suit. She reportedly wouldn't have an issue greeting Blake and Gwen in a less publicized setting.

"If it wasn't such a high-profile event with cameras and reporters everywhere, and they bumped into each other under different circumstances, she wouldn't have a problem saying hello to Blake and Gwen and even introducing Brendan," the insider further explained.

The history between Lambert and Shelton is well documented. The couple began dating in 2006 and were married in 2011 before their surprise split in 2015. Both parties have since moved on, with Lambert meeting McLoughlin in 2018 and marrying him in 2019, while Shelton began dating Gwen Stefani in 2015, marrying her in a private ceremony in 2021.

The mature approach of avoiding possible drama takes precedence for Lambert, reflecting her current relationship dynamics. As she revealed to People, "We just talk it out, whatever it is, we talk about everything. I think communication is super important, especially because women, we expect men to know what we're thinking and they don't. We got to tell them."

While tensions have allegedly eased since their divorce, Lambert's strategic avoidance at the ACM Awards ensures that their interactions remain respectful and controversy-free amid public scrutiny.
