Well if you’ve ever wondered how tabloids get some of their juicy info, here’s your very 2015 answer: Hackers.
Since Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton called it quits a couple of weeks back, loads of tabloid stories have come out pointing fingers at just who is to blame for the divorce: Miranda, Blake, The Voice, Cady Groves, etc., etc., etc.
While most people tend to think the stories the tabloids come up with are completely fabricated, it turns out that at least some of the rumors that have been floating around may have been unknowingly coming from Miranda herself.
In Touch, the magazine Blake has threatened to sue over their newest cover story, is now tattling on a tattler: namely a lady going by the name “Brenda” who admitted to the magazine that she hacked Miranda Lambert’s email and then sold the pilfered contents to at least one tabloid.
“I hacked into her account,” “Brenda” admits. “There are more than 35,000 emails. I’ve been going through them.”
At first, “Brenda” said she got her information from someone close to Blake and Miranda. But when pressured by In Touch, Brenda confessed to the hacking — then confirmed that she’d sold information to a supermarket tabloid, which published it. The published report came out in the last week of July and was attributed to an insider. The woman said that she cracked Miranda’s password and was still going through her emails before In Touch cut off all contact with her.
35,000 emails? Who does Miranda think she is, Hillary Clinton?
It really has to make you wonder if this newest story is for Blake’s benefit. Sort of a “back off because we know even more than we’ve written” sort of thing. Well if the previous part doesn’t make you wonder that, this part of their story just might. They write: “The most explosive information “Brenda” says she obtained from hacking Miranda’s account was not published.”
I have a feeling this fight isn’t over just yet. As for Brenda, it looks like she could be in a lot of trouble for the hacking if authorities (or Miranda Lambert) choose to try and track her down. There’s also the possibility that Brenda could just be a figment of In Touch’s overactive imagination and a way of making themselves look better by saying at least they didn’t purchase and print the worst of the info she was trying to sell. In any case, Miranda may want to think about changing her password.
