Y'all there is some drama being thrown down between Miranda Lambert, her ex-husband Blake Shelton, her ex-boyfriends Anderson East and Jeff Allen McManus, her current boyfriend Evan Felker, his wife Staci Felker (more about her here!) and pretty much everyone that has ever been involved with Miranda and Blake except for Shelton's first wife Kaynette Williams and current girlfriend Gwen Stefani. These are a bunch of grown adults hurling accusations here, there, and everywhere. It's kind of delicious. Let's take a look at the timeline of events and try and unravel who cheated on whom first — including: Did Blake cheat on Miranda?

1. Blake Shelton and Kaynette Williams

First up is Blake Shelton and his first marriage to Kaynette (Gern) Williams. Blake married his long time girlfriend Kaynette on on November 17, 2003. In 2005, he toured with Miranda Lambert. He divorced Kaynette in 2006. 

2. Miranda Lambert and Jeff Allen McManus

Miranda Lambert dated country singer Jeff Allen McManus for three years. She allegedly began her relationship with Blake Shelton while she was still dating Jeff. Remember, Shelton was married when he met Miranda. 

3. Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert

Shelton upped the ante in this petty drama between Miranda Lambert's past lovers by tweeting last week: 

After the internet recovered from the shadiest shade to ever be thrown down, it reminded Shelton that he was, in fact, a married man when he met, fell in love with and started dating Miranda Lambert.

Lambert's ex, Jeff Allen, took to Twitter on April 26 (in a tweet he has since deleted) to say:

“You know, i’ve always given you the benefit of the doubt and chalked it up to just being human, But you must be one arrogant SOB to pop off something like this, when I know damn good and well you were cheating on your wife and Miranda was cheating on me when you two started up."

After he deleted that tweet he came back with: "I kept my mouth shut for 13 years. Sorry his karma tweet rubbed me wrong. All of this is pointless."

Shelton and Lambert met when they toured together in 2005. They were married from 2011 to 2015. In July 2015, the couple announced they were divorcing and released the following statement: 

"This is not the future we envisioned and it is with heavy heart 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."

Their divorce was finalized later that same day.

7. Staci Felker

Staci and Evan got married in September 2016. In January 2018, Evan went on the road with Miranda and her Livin' Like Hippies tour. Evan filed for divorce from his new wife in February. E! News reported that a source close to Staci said that the former Mrs. Felker found out her husband had filed for divorce because a friend called her after seeing it in the newspaper.

Even reportedly didn't even bother to contact her to tell her what was happening, he simply ghosted his ex-wife. She was not served with divorce papers. Staci filed for divorce a couple of weeks after learning that Evan had filed, claiming she was abandoned.

8. Staci Felker's dad

Radar Online spoke to Staci's dad, who was more than willing to offer his opinion on the whole mess. “I don’t know Miranda, but from what I understand he was opening for her,” he said. “From what I understand, Evan asked for the divorce. All I know is hearsay, so I’m not going to pass that on.”

9. The Miranda Lambert issue

OK let's just lay it out there: Miranda Lambert cheated on her ex-Jeff Allen with a MARRIED Blake Shelton. She allegedly cheated on Shelton with her tour manager Ryan Westbook. The two were getting cozy in the months before Shelton and Lambert announced their split. Then Miranda cheated on her boyfriend Anderson East with MARRIED Evan Felker. Staci Felker's dad had something to say about that when he was informed about Miranda's history: “I don’t like to spread rumors, but I’d say you’re on the right track.”
