How high can this "divorce" go?

Back in October, the National Enquirer said Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert were headed for a $40 million divorce. At the time, Blake tweeted, "If it costs 40 million dollars to get a divorce then how will we ever afford it?!!! We had that money set aside for health care!!!"

Ha! Now he's just plain thrilled about the Enquirer's new cover story predicting a $100 million divorce.

On December 28, Blake tweeted, "Wow!! @mirandalambert and I are so excited about our 100 million dollars!!! Who knew you could make so much money just by divorcing?!!” Yeah, it’s an upgrade!

A follower asked what he was going to do with the money. Blake quipped, “Mostly just crack and hookers... Oh and Taco Bell!!” Nice.

Back in May, when there were still more rumors, Blake joked to Extra's Mario Lopez, “We’re getting divorced, we’re having a baby, there’s all these things going on. The truth is, I’ve been drinking a lot and I don’t remember what all’s been happening in my life lately. So I pick up those magazines to find out what the real truth is!”

Love it. It has to get old to read the same rumors over and over, but at least he can joke about it. Besides, in a couple of months the "divorce" may be up to $150 million. They should hold out for $200M, at least!
