Wonderwall.com is taking a look back at the stars who found love, suffered heartbreak or experienced some other major event in their love lives this week, starting with Miranda Lambert's controversial new relationship: The country singer is reportedly dating Evan Felker of the Turnpike Troubadours, who've served as an opening act on her Livin' Like Hippies tour since February. "They are very much involved," a source told Us Weekly as part of an April 24 report. A second source said that the duo "started spending a lot more time together while on the road" and added that things just "happened" between the musicians while Miranda was still with her ex-boyfriend, Anderson East, and Evan was still married to Staci Nelson, whom he reportedly wed in September 2016 and from whom he's now estranged. (According to an In Touch source, "Miranda would call Evan at 3 a.m. while he was lying in bed with his wife. Staci would always ask why she was calling so late. In the beginning he'd tell Staci, 'This is all for business, babe. This could change our great-grandchildren's live.' Eventually it got to be an every-night thing.") "Staci had no other choice but to file for divorce," said one Us Weekly source, adding that "she was devastated." But another insider painted a different picture of the timeline, claiming that Evan actually filed for divorce first on Feb. 16, 12 days before Staci. RadarOnline caught up with Staci's father, who described his daughter as "heartbroken." When the webloid told him that Miranda allegedly has a reputation for dating married men, he replied, "I don't like to spread rumors, but I'd say you're on the right track," though he was "not able to confirm or deny" that Evan and the country star had an affair. But that's not where the story ends…

On April 25, Miranda Lambert's ex-husband, Blake Shelton, seemingly chimed in on her relationship drama with a cryptic tweet: "Been taking the high road for a long time.. I almost gave up. But I can finally see something on the horizon up there!! Wait!! Could it be?! Yep!! It's karma!!" he wrote, later re-tweeting a fan's message that read, "this is what the #TRUTH feels like!!!" Cheating rumors plagued both Miranda and Blake — who fell in love while he was still married to his first wife — around the time they split, though neither have confirmed that infidelity played a role in their breakup. Gavin Rossdale was memorably accused of cheating on Blake's current girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, while they were married. The Bush frontman's infidelity inspired much of Gwen's 2016 album "This Is What the Truth Feels Like" — to which Blake called attention on Twitter, seemingly drawing parallels between what happened to the No Doubt frontwoman and what Miranda has done to the men in her life. Yikes.

Gwyneth Paltrow opened up about her relationship with her fiance, TV producer Brad Falchuk, during an interview with couples therapist Esther Perel for the April 22 issue of The Sunday Times. "For the first time, I feel I'm in an adult relationship that is sometimes uncomfortable because he sort of demands a certain level of intimacy and communication that I haven't been held to before," she said. "What came up in the first couple years of our relationship was how incapable I was in this realm, how I feared intimacy and communication." Continued the actress, "In the past, I've been in relationships with men who had intimacy issues, so I could be, like, 'I'm fine, I'm ready to do this,' and let myself think he's the one with the problem. … In a way, some of the relationships were designed to keep me out of intimacy." Added Gwyneth, "I had two typical types of relationships: one where I was constantly chasing and trying to win someone over … and one where I was put off by the person's capacity for the relationship — and those relationships were very short-lived."

Toward the end of the video, in which Kevin also faces multiple aggressive attempts by female fans to pick him up, an older man tells him, "Yo, Kev. Hey, man, look: Nobody's perfect and you're only human. Learn from it man. Just learn from it," before patting him on the back. Ultimately, Kevin returns home by himself. The video ends with a shot of the words "Choose Wisely" written in the clouds.
