Former country star Jeff Allen McManus had his heart broken by Lambert when she had an affair with Blake Shelton ending their three-year relationship in 2005, and he exclusively told RadarOnline.com that he isn’t surprised to find she’s ran off with another man again.
Addressing her relationship with Felker, he told Radar: “I would imagine that the Miranda I knew 12 years ago is a completely different person now.
“I don't necessarily mean good or bad, but you grow a lot from 18 to 34. But you've also learned a lot and should know better.”
McManus also sent an angry twitter response to Shelton, who commented Lambert’s messy love life was in some way “karma,” as he was baffled as to why he’d say this when he’d done exactly the same and carried on an affair behind his then-wife’s back.
He told Radar: “I'm sure Miranda did Blake dirty just like she did me, but he wasn't thinking about me when he was cheating with her, so I don't know why he thinks its karma.
“A friend of mine sent Blake's tweet and I just thought it was arrogant and off-putting. I just thought 'Man, go on and live your life and do your own thing.'
“I'd opened shows for him and knew people around town that knew him and I'd just never said anything. But his tweet just rubbed me up so much.
“I wasn't doing it to stick up for Miranda, I'm not trying to let her off the hook, because it takes two.”
Lambert’s ex also had words of support for Staci Fleker, Evan’s jilted wife of just over a year, who was shocked by his divorce filing on February 16 and has been reeling ever since.
Similarly, McManus was dumped by Lambert after three years by phone as she was about to duet with Shelton at a country music awards show.
He explained the misery to Radar. “I know that heartache, I know what it’s like to be blindsided and the pain that comes along with it. I wish her the best, I was fine and I'm sure she'll be fine too.
“I would say the same thing my friends told me when Blake did what he did to me which is live and let live, learn from your mistakes and move on with your life, if it was meant to be it would have been, and it wasn't.”
McManus – who has since gone on to marry and start a family and left music for a career as a barber – also surprisingly doesn’t have any harsh words for former girlfriend Lambert.
“The person that I sometimes have a hard time unseeing is the person I was with for three years,” he told Radar. “Miranda was a loving, caring person and a good girlfriend, we had a lot of good times and I have good memories.”
