Country music star Blake Shelton has finally addressed why his split from Miranda Lambert seemed so quick.

The two announced their divorce on Jul. 20, but according to US Weekly, it was finalized just hours after it was made public. Shelton had filed divorce papers two weeks earlier, TMZ reports.

In a recent interview with "The Bobby Bones Show," Shelton shared how he kept their breakup quiet.

"In Oklahoma, it happens so fast," said Shelton. "Like, Miranda and I didn't have any kids, and we had a prenuptial agreement, or whatever we had. So, it was like once we filed for divorce… it was like a nine or 10-day waiting period until it's over.”

He said that he was not too worried about rumours, or whispers about infidelity.

“By the time anyone knew anything, it was over.”

The superstar couple were married for four years and famously met in 2005 while Shelton was still married to first wife Kaynette Gern.

"I didn't know if it was just initial butterflies… I don't know what it was," Lambert told Hoba Kotb in 2011, about when she first met Shelton. "It was just this draw to each other."

But while those butterflies may have faded for the couple, their speedy divorce may have helped them avoid any further drama.

Oklahoma came in second in a ranking of states with the nicest divorces, according to new research from divorce form preparation service CompleteCase.com.

Shelton told "The Bobby Bones Show" that he and Lambert are still on good terms.

"Our whole thing was: You know, we're just going to be cool about this," said Shelton. "It is what it is. We're buddies."
