Blake Shelton buys Miranda Lambert's store

Blake Shelton has bought his ex-wife's former store.

Miranda Lambert has closed down her Pink Pistol boutique in Tishomingo, Oklahoma, following her split from Blake last year and her move to Tennessee and Blake has snapped up the empty property and promised that he has exciting plans in store for it.

He told Entertainment Tonight: "As a resident of Tishomingo I'm very sorry that the Pink Pistol has decided to move its operations out of the area. We all, as a community, appreciate everything it has done for our town. As for the actual properties left behind... I was offered the opportunity to buy them, and I have a plan brewing."

When asked by a fan on Twitter if he had bought the store, Blake replied: "No sir. PP left town. I bought the building it used to be in though!!! And yes something is brewing... (sic)"

Blake, 39 and Miranda, 32, split last year after four years of marriage and locals in Tishomingo were left shocked by break-up.

Local resident Ray Lokey said: "We love them both to pieces. We're so grateful to both of them, especially Miranda. She's turned our local economy around."

After the split, Blake - who is now dating Gwen Stefani - retained the ranch they lived in in Oklahoma while Miranda reportedly kept their 1,000-plus-square-foot Nashville mansion.

She is also believed to have splashed out on a $3.4 million compound in Tennessee.

Meanwhile, Gwen - who split from her husband Gavin Rossdale last year - previously revealed she and Blake became close after he sent her part of a song he'd written and asked her to finish it.

She explained; "He had written this song and sent it to me on my phone. And he's like 'I wrote this song,' I was scared to listen to it like ... what if I don't like it? And I listened to it and I was like, 'Oh my god, I love this.'

"There was a time I was really insecure about writing. I went through such a drought where I was so insecure. I think when you have a really long career ... you start to compete with your own self and get insecure - like, I did that ... but how did I do that?

"With this song, he was like ... write the rest of it. And I was just like, 'OK.' Instead of being like, 'Oh, I don't know how to write, and what if he doesn't like it?' I just thought about what I felt and I just sent him back a verse that was basically to him. And then we had a song! We were like, 'Wow, we have a song together!' and that was it. It's weird. It's natural."
