Chris Young rarely speaks publicly about his personal life, but he took to Twitter very quickly last month to shut down rumors he had an affair with Miranda Lambert that led to her divorce from Blake Shelton.
Chris tells Entertainment Tonight, “Man, it sucks that I got put in this situation with two people who are my friends. It’s just so weird getting pulled into something like that where it just wasn’t true.”
While Chris hasn’t seen Blake or Miranda since their divorce, he has texted and talked on the phone with both of them. Chris even texted with Blake the day the cheating rumors started. Says Chris, “He was like, ‘Dude, sorry.’ I was like ‘I know, man.'”
Despite the divorce, Chris insists Blake and Miranda are still on good terms with each other. “They’re both really great friends still, so it’s just one of those things,” Chris explains. “That’s kind of a byproduct of doing this and being in the spotlight I guess.”
As for Chris, he’s climbing the country chart with his latest single, “I’m Comin’ Over.” His album of the same name is due out this fall.
