SHOW­DOWN IN COURT

Life & Style Weekly - - Contents -

Mi­randa Lam­bert has been hear­ing from the haters in the wake of the rev­e­la­tion that her boyfriend, Evan Felker, is still legally mar­ried. And things are about to get even more un­com­fort­able for Mi­randa if she gets dragged into Evan’s di­vorce bat­tle with es­tranged wife Staci. “That’s Mi­randa’s worst night­mare,” an in­sider says. “She hates be­ing la­beled a home-wrecker — it re­ally tears her up. The last thing she wants is to get caught up in this.” A pal of the coun­try singer’s re­cently told Life & Style that by the time Mi­randa and Evan, both 34, first met in per­son on Feb. 1, he was al­ready in the process of split­ting from Staci, 33. (His pe­ti­tion for di­vorce was signed Feb. 13 and filed in Ok­la­homa on Feb. 16.) But even if that’s the case, it might not pre­vent Mi­randa from hav­ing to come face-to-face with Staci in a court­room. “They ab­so­lutely can call Mi­randa as a wit­ness,” LA- based fam­ily at­tor­ney Goldie Schon, who is not in­volved in this case, tells Life & Style. “[Staci] can say, ‘I want to find out whether or not he spent our money on Mi­randa.’ ” It’s ir­rel­e­vant, Schon says, that Turn­pike Troubadours singer Evan was the one who filed for di­vorce first. “It makes ab­so­lutely no dif­fer­ence. It’s a mar­riage and there are two par­ties get­ting di­vorced,” Schon ex­plains. “Mi­randa could def­i­nitely be de­posed or be a wit­ness at the time of trial.”

“Mi­randa loves Evan,” an in­sider says, “but she’s try­ing to steer clear of his messy di­vorce” from Staci (in­set, with the Turn­pike Troubadours front­man).
