BLAKE Shelton‘s ex-wife is “barely scraping by” as an elementary schoolteacher in Kansas.
Kaynette Williams – who helped launched country singer Blake to stardom before he allegedly cheated on her with Miranda Lambert — is said to be struggling financially.
“Kaynette was not only a loyal wife, she stood by Blake through the roughest of times while he was struggling,” a source said.
“But Blake turned his back on her for Miranda.
“Without Kaynette to keep his career on track, it’s unlikely he would have ever reached his level of stardom.”
Blake courted Kaynette for several years before they married in 2003. When he filed for divorce in February 2006, he and Miranda had already known each other for nearly six months.
In divorce papers, Kaynette claimed Blake was “guilty of inappropriate marital conduct.”
