RadarOnline.com has learned that Felker filed a motion on Tuesday, May 15, to end his marriage to Staci Nelson in a fair amount of time.
In the paperwork obtained by Radar, Felker, 34, stated if a scheduling order is not entered, Nelson will unduly delay the matter.
But a source exclusively told Radar that Lambert could be the one behind Felker's move to speed up his divorce!
"Anyone who actually speaks to Staci knows she has wanted out of this marriage for months. Evan is the one who disappeared again and changed his phone number. They both planned to end this quietly. Staci has never wanted to go to court and Evan told Staci he did not want to either, so there is probably someone a little more powerful dictating all of this," the source said.
Felker filed for divorce from Nelson on February 16. She then filed her own petition for divorce on February 28, 2018, alleging that Felker had abandoned her—a charge he has denied.
As Radar readers know, Lambert was embroiled in controversy after it was revealed her new beau was married and a source said Felker had left his wife for her!
Us Weekly first revealed that Lambert, 34, is dating the Turnpike Troubadours lead singer, who served as the opening act on her "Livin’ Like Hippies" tour since February.
A second source confirmed Lambert is "the reason" for Felker and Nelson’s divorce.
The insider said, "Evan wants the divorce for his new life and so he can be with Miranda. Evan wants to be with Miranda and he didn’t want to be married with his wife anymore. He wanted the divorce first. Staci had no choice but to go through with it. They had been together for about five years or so, including the time they were married."
According to the spy, Felker "is in love with Miranda and and Miranda loves him too."
After the drama broke, Felker’s heartbroken wife Nelson didn't stay quiet, captioning a selfie on her Instagram story, "PSA: If Staci Felker can make it through this week, so can you."
Nelson also slammed her estranged husband and the man-stealing country singer in a shocking video.
Now, Felker is battling with Nelson during their divorce in the District Court of Okfuskee County in Oklahoma.
Radar obtained the first photos of Lambert with Felker. They were spotted in a loving moment at Old Absinthe House in New Orleans on March 26, two days after wrapping up her tour.
