In Miranda Lambert’s “Mama’s Broken Heart” video, the country star portrays someone ravaged by torment, who eventually dabbles in mind-altering substances, cuts her own hair and deviously inspects a kitchen knife. Basically, it’s about being crazy.
But wait, don’t award her an MTV Moonman just yet, folks; the character Lambert was playing might not have been much of a stretch, after all.
According to a police report filed by Melanie Peden — a Tishomingo antique shop owner and neighbor to Lambert’s Pink Pistol boutique — the country-pop tart went postal after accusing Peden of stealing her property. “She had a complete meltdown and threatened to punch me in the mouth if I kept talking,” Peden told National Enquirer. “I was stunned and a little bit scared, too, because she was growling and yelling at me like a crazy lady. She’s got a real anger problem and needs help.”
To be fair, investigators confirmed there’s no evidence any crime was committed. But amid tabloid reports that Lambert’s husband, Blake Shelton, might have been unfaithful to Lambert — whether true or not (and with Oklahoma recording artist Cady Groves, no less) — we find Peden’s “growling” claim to be at least somewhat plausible.
