“In Oklahoma, it happens so fast. Like, Miranda and I didn’t have any kids, and we had a pre-nuptial agreement, whatever we had,” he explained. “Once we filed for divorce, it was over in, like, I think it was like a nine or ten day waiting period until it’s over.”

And how they’re coping with the rumor mill.

“We knew if rumblings and rumors started coming out, they would just be that, because by the time anybody knew anything it was over. It was done,” he added. “Our whole thing was, we are going to be cool about this, it is what it is.”
