ON MIRANDA’S PAYROLL!
Miranda Lambert is in good hands on her Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour — because her husband, Brendan McLoughlin, is the head of her security team! “Miranda wanted Brendan to be on her schedule because she’s always traveling, and of course, she wanted him to be by her side,” a source tells Star. “She told him, ‘I’ll pay you way more money and we’d be working together on our own terms.’” The singer, 35, eventually made an offer that was hard for the New York City police officer — who’s taken a leave from the department — to refuse, so now the couple are mixing business with pleasure. But, according to the insider, Miranda’s generous offer is also a ploy to keep tabs on her new hubby while she’s out on the road! “It’s just one more way for Miranda to control the relationship. She doesn’t completely trust Brendan,” adds the cohort. “She has money and power — and she uses it to keep the upper hand over people.”
